Giant Leech Swallowing a Worm Whole

(Video Link)

Are you hungry? You sure will be after watching the preparation and consumption of this filling meal! The BBC program Wonders of the Monsoon showed a Giant Red Leech swallowing a blue worm longer than itself.

That's right: the filmmakers estimate that the leech was 50 cm and the worm 70 cm long. The leech started at one end and started sucking down the worm like it was a thick strand of spaghetti.

This incident took place at Mount Kinabalu on the island of Borneo. The filmmakers had to wait for weeks for the rains to get heavy enough to draw the reclusive leeches out into the open. But as you can see, the wait was worth the reward. Yummy!
