View Full Version : cool pattern leech I found

I went fishing in a local stream this morning. Didn't catch any fish.
Since they were not biting I began flipping over logs and rocks in the water looking for crayfish, turtles, anything really since I was bored. On a piece of rotting wood I pulled out of the water there was this odd golden brown and black lump with a pattern. I poked it with a twig and it began crawling around on the wood using it's sucker mouth to anchor itself then pull it's body along.
I have been searching online all day to find a picture of this guy.
I have done a 100 searches and found nothing like this.
Anyone know what type of leech this is or have ever seen one like it?
