    "To feed on its prey, a flatworm extends its pharynx out from its mouth on the mid-ventral portion of its body and secretes enzymes that begin digestion of the earthworm external to the flatworm. The liquefied earthworm tissues are sucked into the branching gut of the flatworm by ciliary action" (Wikipedia Bipalium article)...Okay, just wanted to be sure that this was what I was actually seeing. Nasty.

    Man, you poor southern States have to be the most invaded-by-foreign-species place in the entire world. How much kudzu did you have to dig away to find this little monster?

    Only you overlooked one thing. Compassion of humanity. I try not to step on earth worms when they come out of the ground for rain.

    These mofo`s? Better hope they can breath in water, because I`m stepping on every one I see.
