Australia: You’ve probably seen insects or ketchup hidden in the wet soil, but have you ever wondered how big the world’s tallest ketchup is? The answer is that Australian soil contains the world’s longest ketchup, which can grow to more than six feet.
You can see lots of such catfish in Base River Valley in the area called Gipsland in the north of Victoria. A ketchup can be more than six and a half feet long.
It is commonly called Gipsland Quechua and its biological name is Megascoloides australis. This shy moth lives underground and seldom comes to life, no matter how much the environment changes. It is located in an area of 150 square miles along the shores of Lake Australia. It used to be a dense forest and now there is farming. Nevertheless, this worm survives in every environment.
The first record of these catches is found around 1800 when the railway line was being laid here. At first it was thought to be a snake, but scientists said it was an overgrown ketchup. At the time, its length was noted to be one to two meters. As such, it deserves to be called the longest Quechua in the world.
Their skin is wet and smooth and when they crawl fast in soft wet soil, they make a loud noise that feels like a rapid flow of water. Some people are frightened when they hear this voice.
Due to their strong frontal muscles, they grow in the soil and contain food, bacteria, algae and fungi. Due to their strength, they reach a depth of five feet. They can only be seen after heavy rains or after their pits have flowed.
