13" worm. Tan in color, with a lighter tan strip that ran the length of its body with another dark super think strip inside the tan strip. It had a dark brown ring near the base of the head. Smooth, shiny texture. and a hammer shaped head. Body was flat, like a tapeworm... Ick!
this thing crossed my path yesterday. it is gross. What I do find interesting is the shape of its head. When it moved it seemed like its head was what sensed the obstacles and helped guide the direction of its movement. It would touch the object with this odd shaped appendage and then move around or over it. I do not think it has eyes either. And it moved pretty fast relatively speaking. It would be kind of interesting to see what its role is in life.
