In the stories of hobbits,[self-published source?] the were-worms were supposedly terrible monsters that made their home in the Last Desert very far east of the Shire. In the tales of The Hobbit, the Wereworms were likened to Dragons and serpents. To Hobbits they were memories of creatures that stalked the Earth during the Wars of Beleriand.
These creatures appeared in The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Apparently they were used only for tunnelling and not for fighting because they did not take part in the ensuing battle. They were thought to have tunneled through the Misty Mountains and the Blue Mountains (Ered Luin), although tunneling is known to be mostly the work of Dwarves.
