    We talked about this in chat but just for those who might not know- It's a polyclad flatworm.

    Clams and snails aren't safe when he's around.

    +1 polyclad flat worm. You need to take it out ASAP, if there is one then there are probably some more. They feast on clams and snails. Looks for dead snail shells.

    Here are some youtube links. I'm guessing up to 3-4". Check out the comments on the first one (clam eater). Watch out Bill!

    It looked ginormous in the picture........... so wow. So you can "take it out"... does other flatworm product work on getting rid of them in your system? Just curious how you get rid of an infestation of those. Personally, I'd move out of the house and not come back. EVER. LOL
