More Worms

A week or two ago I was visiting a science classroom teaching a squid dissection and the teacher had a poster on the wall that was a visual map of the different phyla in the animal kingdom. It was a really amazing poster and I tried to find out if I could order it but apparently the company that makes it only sells to retailers. So that was sad.

But the important thing is that I counted the number of phyla that were described as some kind of worm. The total count? 11. That's about a third of animal phyla.
