There is something lurking in the pond...

While scooping out the floating pond weed today, I noticed there were lots of little critters stuck to my hand.

After investigating one in more detail, I realised the pond is full of Leeches :)

After looking in close details, they only have two eyes at the front, making them Helobdella stagnalis.

They are only little and not capable of sucking my blood, but look out all you pond snails!
