As a kid I would go to my backyard and dig up earth worms from the garden. I would keep them in a plastic container with soil. Earth worms are interesting looking and acting, but not the most exciting pet to have. The tend to just wiggle their way through soil, most times being hardly visible from the surface. It was always important to switch out there soil for new soil, since they obtain their food from the soil. The box would always smell, since it was technically only a box of soil full of worms. They were always easy to catch and handle. Definitely not an animal I would consider having as a pet again. Better to watch them in their natural habitat.
