Product Description

3d printable Earthworm tube lid for tube (http://shpws.me/MeJG)... height of the lid adjusted to make it easy to tape!Sandstone is not only thermal insulator but resistant to weathering... which makes it an excellent choice for underground/overground storage containers ( crops, flour, rice--- less likely to be infested with rats) etc etc

Could be used to transport other insects and samples: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Ms04x6MvMY

Audiobook: https://youtu.be/ga7J49ymAck

Note: This lid design is meant for express shipping ( less than a day or 2) where the earthworms can still breathe from the moist soil... For standard shipping or shipping that takes more than a day or 2 in a moist environment... this lid is preferable:: (http://shpws.me/LvBg)!

Research: "Breathing: Worms breathe air in and carbon dioxide out, just like us, but they don't have lungs. They can't breathe through their mouth, and certainly can't breathe through their nose because they don't even have one! ... Air dissolves on the mucus of their skin, so they MUST stay moist to breathe" (google)
