Fossil evidence of a completely unknown prehistoric species of giant sand worm has been discovered in Devon, England. The giant worms would have lived 260 million years ago, long before dinosaurs roamed the Earth, growing up to 3ft long and 6in wide. Large burrow holes were found indicating that the creatures would have travelled beneath the surface.

"Scientists have found evidence of a giant prehistoric sand worm in an English seaside resort."

These worms did actually get a lot bigger; you can find them anywhere (in rock piles...on the sides of mountains) even in prehistoric art. They appear as three segments; the head (I'm assuming) look like a horned snake with ears. I first noticed these in small rocks and then started to investigate...they are frikken everywhere! The even appear in photos from Mars and the Moon. I'm almost positive that they had something to do with human creation or evolution. If you check out photos of the sides of mountains etc. you will find them...some are in pieces but you will definitely find whole ones. ... [More]
