Worm is another word for dragon, and were-, as in werewolf, appears simply to indicate intelligent beasts (Tolkien's werewolves are neither bipedal nor shapeshifting, unless I've missed something). Shouldn't "were-worms" simply be considered to be another word for dragons, at least as speculation? {{SUBST:User:Xavius/Signature}} 09:03, January 31, 2011 (UTC)

read "the history of the hobbit". he meant to write wireworms, which is a real animal in china. let's not get carried away with were-creatures
