Rockworm Lore

So, having only recently fallen prey to the hardcore fever, I've found myself with many opportunities to hear the lore books for the various creatures in Sanctuary. A few of them stick out, but none so much as the lore for the rockworm. Abd al-Hazir comments that the rockworm is a "giant invertebrate", but some of the time when the creatures are killed, they leave behind a skeleton corpse (that is, a spine and ribs in the shape of a worm). This seems like a silly inconsistency - are the rockworms vertebrates or not?

I know this is a minor detail, but it's bothersome...

I suppose they would have to be a vertebrate then. A small oversight by the D3 team.

The smaller ones might not be... but the bigger ones might come from somewhere else (Burning Hells) ?

Perhaps they are both right? Hehe

I just had the same thought. My guess is that Abd al-Hazir is just wrong. From other lore samples he doesn't seem to be the most knowledgeable...

But yeah, bothers me too.

Perhaps the entire skeletal structure is composed of a flexible cartilage type material. This would provide the worm with a bit of internal structure without impeding upon flexibility.
