Giant Worms of England?
Hi. Can you give me your opinion about the giant worms of England that seemed to exist in several places - what were they, what happened to them, do you think they still exist somewhere in the world? I believe they must have been real (at least some of them).
I've been researching the folklore of Northumbria and have found four giant worm legends, plus others in the rest of England that are fairly recent up to C.27th. They are not dragons, but something almost akin to the beasts in 'Tremors'. They would have appeared to be almost common at one time living in caves, wells, and hills, then coming out to eat people and livestock. Some were poisonous.
I'd love to read your ideas about these please, and whether they may still exist in the world. Thanks.
