Ahhh Don't be embarrassed Ray. As you said, we're taught to have as little to
do with Invert Zoo and Microbiology as possible :)

I'm curious tho. Did you note which end the lil' guy was crawling in? The
short end above the clitellum (the smooth ring) or the long end below?

Could you imagine being one long digestive tract? heh.

I am embarrassed to say that did not come to mind. I guess I am programmed
when I see a small critter ina bigger ones mouth, and its not a parasite, it
is probalby supper for the bigger one. Eating potty just doesn't sound, well
... But these are worms.
