Do worms have teeth? I was holding a green? worm and it felt like he bit me. I like to collect worms, feed them and watch them grow but now I'm a little afraid of them. Hope you can answer my question so I can understand what happen.

Worms do not have teeth. Some have satae on their epidermal layers to hold them in soil. These could seem like teeth.
