"Hehe.  I see the resemblance, Larry.  But slugs (mollusks) are waaay more advanced than planarians (flatworms).  For example, planarians have one hole that has to serve for both mouth and anus (yecch).  A very simple, primitive,…"

"This was under the lid of one of my bins, the only place I've ever found them. I'm not really bothered, because I'm pretty sure they stay on top of the bedding. In other words they're not lurking below the surface, destroying the…"

"Wait, you said round, with bands?  Land planarians have a flattened body (they are flatworms).  Smooth skin, not like an earthworm.  Here's a picture."

"That's the one -- spade shaped head, yeah, that's a good way of putting it.  Very slow moving, lengthwise stripes, very sticky slime.  I don't know how they can catch earthworms when they are so slow, but somehow they do,…"
