photographing and learning about wildlife
about 15cm (6") long, slimy, Bipalium species are carnivorous; they prey on earthworms which they track from the trails left behind
My friend spotted this on a trail on a forested mountain about 30km north of Tuy Hoa. It began to rain a lot as we started a 3 hour trail to the top of the mountain and it was no fun anymore so we turned back. On the way down my friend saw this and pointed it out to me because she knows I'm interested in insects and weird creatures. I would have missed it if it wasn't for her. I had first learned about Hammerhead worms on Noah, so I was really excited to see one in the wild for the first time. I'm not sure if this is in the right category.
