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 Mists of Pandaria, caterpillars also became available. The carrion grub, especially common in the Eastern Plaguelands, is not tamable.
