'Alien' in sewer turns out to be worms

Pulsating blobs filmed in a North Carolina sewer prompting speculation they were an 'alien' lifeform have been identified as worms.

The slimy sacs were filmed clinging to the crevices of a sewer and shying away from the light as a camera was passed along the pipes.

Footage of the creatures was posted on YouTube leading to speculation that an alien creature was living in the sewers of Raleigh, reports the Daily Telegraph.

The clip has attracted more than four million hits but now biolgists have confirmed the blobs are a colony of worms coiled together. Ed Buchan, environmental coordinator at the Raleigh Public Utilities Department, confirmed the 'creature' was actually a colony of worms. The colonies attach themselves to roots that gradually work themselves into weak points in the pipes.

The town these were found in is less than three hours from where I live.
