Hammerhead Worm

Bipalium sp.


Black worm with a sucker at one end.


Dining hall of a resort in Village Borong (Sikkim) a remote, hilly, leech-infested area.


I exclaimed, "Is it a leech?"as I took this one snap when the waiter came and said, "No this is not a leech."and crushed it and swept it away. Over in two seconds! PS: Leech photos and video coming soon.
