Hammerhead Worm

Bipalium, aka, the Hammerhead Worm is a genus of large predatory land planarians. The are a predatory species that track and feed on earth worms, snails, and slugs. Before the prey can escape the hammerhead worm will attach itself to it by using its muscles as well as gluey secretions which makes escape impossible.

I have no idea where this thing is from but if I had to guess it would be one of two places.

Either the bowels of hell or Australia...which is pretty much the same thing when it comes to wildlife.
