Hammerhead Worm

Another fascinating part of field herping, along with all the other natural wonders we encounter, is the invertebrates! This forum is dedicated to both field and captive invertebrates.

CA version :thumb: Just came across this guy not too long ago. Crawling at night across dry cement walkway to my apartment. The other two looked like this one. Not sure if it's native, but they're here...

The California specimen is probably the invasive Bipalium kewense, not sure about the Japanese species.
