The Bridge Worms are internet-Urban-Legend creatures that were created by the Trevor Henderson Mythos. They are known for their sinister goals of devouring mankind. As their name implies, the Bridge Worms tend to lair beneath bridges and other overpasses.
The Bridge Worms started off when a photo of a big creature inside of a tunnel started spreading on the internet. In the photo, a large white creature with a sad face, laying on the ground, with its hands and its white face visible is physically seen. People started speculating on the creature, until a drawing of the creature started spreading on the internet, on which it is written "Bridge Worm", giving the creature its name. In the drawing, it is suggested that the Bridge Worm has a false face, and that underneath its innocent-looking white face hides its much more sinister real face (as shown in their infobox).
Further on, a photographer by the name Thomas Pearong has been missing for a while. Later on, his final photo was found. In the photo, the real face of the Bridge Worm is revealed to the public, which appears to be a fleshy-muscular sharp-toothed creature. The Bridge Worm ended up possibly consuming the photographer. Once the news broke, the question of what the Bridge Worm is started to spread.
People started describing the Bridge Worm as a hostile creature that acts like a spider, which is very dangerous. It would always be in the same location, waiting for its next victim. Once the victim arrives, the Bridge Worm would jump out from its location and instantly murder and consume the victim without any remorse for the act.
Theories started spreading that the Bridge Worm will one day get out from its location and start finding victims at an alarming rate. It is also confirmed that the Bridge Worm photo taken by Pearcing shows a teenage version of the Worm, leading to the question of what the adult Bridge Worm is like. While an old photo of a long creature jumping on a road has been compared and believed to be the adult version of the Bridge Worm, comparison of it to an artwork by Henderson of an actual adult Bridge Worm has debunked its identity as an adult Bridge Worm, mostly due to the lack of arms. The worm jumping on the road is instead believed to belong to another collection of monsters created by Henderson known as the Giants.
An artwork of the Bridge Worm with a larger, longer and buffer appearance and a more defined-looking face has been posted by Trevor on Twitter. He comments that the facial markings of the Worm’s false false become more defined to assist in hunting as they get older, confirming that the artwork is of an adult Bridge Worm.
