Looking for answers about worms and butterflies

As I was reading the newspaper one morning, my 4 year old was coloring a picture. He came to me and asked, "Mommy, do worms have ears?"

"I don't know, why do you ask?", I said.

He was coloring a picture and needed to know if it would be correct to draw ears on the worm. I told him that I thought if they do have ears, that they probably wouldn't be the kind that you can see.

Today, he was coloring as I was cleaning up after lunch. "Mommy?", he called. "Do butterflies have toes?"

I'm sure I don't know the answer to these questions. Anyone else know?

I had a comment all typed and it was brilliant. Blogger ate it.

I'll never forget the day mini-Me asked if Fish have noses. I had to google it.
You could google the question -- or go to "Ask" - but you could also look up worms and see how they do hear. And the best way I can think of to see if Butterflies have toes is to catch one. Got net??

Be sure to let me know the answer. I'm curious.
