Alabama Jumpers are known for their fast wriggling action which enables them to jump.
In reality they coil up and wriggle to the point the Alabama Jumper becomes a loaded spring which releases suddenly, hence enabling them to jump.
To give you an idea of the Alabama Jumpers ability to leap tall buildings in a single bound I decided to put together this amusing little video.
These worms are excellent for garden and flower bed areas where the soil consists mainly of hard packed clay or sand. Alabama Jumpers also make an excellent fishing worm not only for their great wiggling activity but also their longevity in the water on a hook!
