Park rangers in Texas had thought someone left spaghetti in the middle of the road.
Instead, the piles in the middle of Eisenhower State Park were actually worms, Park Superintendent Ben Herman told ABC News today.
Rangers were checking the back roads of the park in Denison, Texas, found on May 29 when they found the piles lined up in a near-perfect straight line.
“We’re still puzzled why they decided to line up in the middle of the road,” Herman said. “Even our biologist doesn’t know why they’re spaced so well and in the line.”
Rangers decided to poke the piles with a stick to ensure that there were only worms in the spaghetti-looking clumps.
The worms stayed for two days before heading back into the soil and leaving behind their manure, Herman added.
