Congratulations andreweleighton, your spotting has been chosen for Project Noah's Fact of the Day: "Flatworms (phylum Platyhelminthes, around 29,000 described species) are simple worms with no segments and no organized organ systems. Their lack of respiratory organs limits their shape to a flat structure, so that they can take in oxygen by simple diffusion. While many flatworms are best known for being parasites to humans and livestock, flatworms also exhibit a stunning diversity and an amazing range of colors and patterns.
