Dredge Worm

Carrion Grub

Worms are invertebrate creatures. One type is a slithering, segmented beast with what sometimes appears to be a tiny pair of limbs near its face. Almost all worms are found inside cave-themed instances such as Maraudon or Ragefire Chasm, but a few types of tiny worms live inside zombies. Strangely, some species of worms are skinnable, while others are not. Worm pets and items (fishing) also exist.

Rock borers and jormungar were the first two worm types to become tamable by hunters. With the introduction of World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria Mists of Pandaria, caterpillars also became available. The carrion grub, especially common in the Eastern Plaguelands, is not tamable.

Worms are considered exotic beasts and can only be tamed by beastmaster hunters with the [Exotic Beasts] ability.

Though hunters can respec their pet worms into Cunning or Ferocity, they are inherently Tenacity. In addition to the abilities that come standard with all pets ([Growl] and [Avoidance]) and those given to their natural or retrained specialization, all worms are given the following:
