Leech

Description:

Small and black. If you look at the cropped image you can see the segmentations.

Habitat:

At the entrance of the monastery near Ravangla, a tourist town in Sikkim. I suspect the semi-pet dogs courier the leeches around.

Notes:

Most leeches fall off by themselves once they have drunk to their tummy's content. Leech bites itch a lot; at least mine do. http://faunaofindia.nic.in/PDFVolumes/re...
