At Worm Watch Lab, where zooites study the egg-laying behavior of nematode worms, we only expect to find actual egg-laying events in one out of every 20 – 30 videos.
But sometimes, a worm just flat-out outdoes itself, and this is definitely one of those times. Watch and be amazed! How many eggs does it lay? Six? Seven? Nine? There are so many, it’s hard to get a firm number!
Can you find any worm that’s as good an egg-layer as this one? Give it a shot at Worm Watch Lab!
I think about 9 eggs , I wonder how many eggs is maximum for 1 worm ?
That’s the most I’ve seen for a single bout of egg laying, but in its life, a typical worm will lay hundreds!
