A video of hundreds of worms clinging to each other on the streets of Beijing, China has caused quite a stir.
Like the rain of locusts or frogs, here is the rain of worms. Anyway, this is what a video circulating on social networks shows, the images of which were captured a few days ago in Beijing, China.
In this video, we see hundreds, if not thousands, of worms piled up on the streets and on the hoods of parked cars.
These animals come to this place after a rain. The images show passers-by with umbrellas.
A sign of the apocalypse
Although worms were not part of this belief at the time, this shower of worms was perceived as a cataclysmic sign of the beginning of the end of the world, representing the 10 perfection of Egypt.
Hypothesis of a rain
A rain of various animals is a meteorological phenomenon characterized by a very significant number of animals falling from the sky, and, each time, belonging to the same species.
This phenomenon has been observed in many places and at many times: locusts, frogs, fish, birds … all fall from the sky. Then the animals are thrown to the ground by hundreds or more, some torn to pieces, others unharmed, some dead, others still frozen.
These freak rainfalls could be due to a cyclone or a violent storm, which would have carried the animals away for further transport.
The first full moon in March, nicknamed the “Worm Moon,” traditionally marks the return of earthworms to the surface. Paris competition.
This moon is closest to Earth, very bright and attracts animals.
In addition, March is the season when worms, slugs, larvae, and worms return to the surface after winter and walk the ground.
These swarms of worms may be due to this fact and they may not have fallen from the sky, but they may have crawled to get into the cars.
Poplar Flower Hypothesis
The last hypothesis put forward is that it is not worms, but poplar flowers that look like creeping animals from afar.
Besides, these flowers are in season and there are poplars in Beijing.
