Segmented worms, or annelids, contain the most familiar types of worm: the earthworms found in garden soil and the ragworms and lugworms dug up on muddy beaches. The segmented bodies of animals in this phylum make them both efficient burrowers and good swimmers. Segmented worms have a variety of dietary approaces. Some, such as lugworms, are filter-feeders; others are blood-suckers like the leeches.
