Happy Monday: here's a video of a Florida flatworm!

I was eating breakfast on the back patio with my wife recently when I noticed something really cool creeping between the cracks of the bricks... and I caught it and put it on the table so I could film some footage.

It was... a flatworm!


You don't see those every day.

And they move fast. Check out my video:


It's a tiny little thing.

I decided to add my song "Worms" as a soundtrack. It seemed appropriate. If you really want to suffer, you can find the complete album here. My favorite tracks are The Superman Song, Eye of the Hurricane and Publix... though I think they're all cool.

I am, however, quite biased. I've also been reliably informed that I have "terrible taste" and that my music has "no commercial value whatsoever."

As for this cool little flatworm... you really never know what you'll find crawling around in a healthy ecosystem.

I see I've been forgetting to look here lately. I came to see if you had posted the worm video so I could make a comment, but I got distracted by all the posts I had missed, so I forgot what my comment was, except it had something to do with hammerhead sharks and Godzilla.

I've been wondering: do you get income from people using your Amazon link only when they buy something? I put the link on my blog and I use it a lot to look up stuff on Amazon, but don't often actually buy something.

David,
We have those miserable things down here also. I checked them out, a invasive species that thrives on eating our earthworms. They don't fare too well to the sole of the boot.

Ah-ha. This one looked so cute. I've seen the big ones down south - didn't realize this could be the same species. Wonder if there are any lookalikes.

Yes - only when there's a purchase. Thank you for thinking of me.
