Growing up to 3 or 4 meters (13 ft.) in length with the body about 3 cm (1.5 inch) thick these awesome giant earthworms may easily be confused with snakes.

Giant Gippsland earthworms live only along the river banks and near the hills of Southwest Gippsland, Australia. Their average length is 1 meter, but the longest known specimen reached incredible length of 4 meters.
