View Full Version : difference between fireworm and regular bristleworm

title says it all my g/f found another hitch hiker, a worm that looks like centipede. she said it is pinkish orange in color, and about inch and a half long. i have been reading up on worms and not sure if it would be a fireworm or regular bristleworm. i would like to figure out which one it is because if it is just a regular bristleworm i would like to keep him in there. i know a pictuer would help greatly in identifying it but i am away at work.

generally baby bristleworms are quite orange in colour. Unless your LR came from the Atlantic, I wouldn't worry about fireworms

The regular, good (until they get big) ones are orangish with a purple section. The bad ones are more of a grey or steel blue irridescent color and uniform in color.
