The worm is an invertebrate animal consisting of a tube-like body with no legs.
Worms can be used as bait for fish. The Hogwarts potions champion dug up some worms to use for this purpose during the Wizarding Schools Potions Championship, planning to taint the caught fish with Shrinking Solution and feed them to the River Troll blocking their path.
