Die Natur bringt manchmal Dinge hervor, über die wir erstmal eine Weile sinnieren müssen. Dieser Egel lebt in Borneo und ist so neu, dass er noch gar nicht klassifiziert ist. Die Einheimischen kennen ihn allerdings und nennen ihn einfach „grosser roter Egel“. Freunde, jetzt wisst ihr auch, wieso man(n) im Dschungel von Borneo stets seine Hosen geschlossen und versiegelt halten sollte. Der Clip stammt aus „Wonders of the monsoon“, einer neuen Serie der NBC. Lest mal:

The Giant Red Leech is one of the biggest in the world. The specimen captured on camera was around 30cm long but experts believe they could grow larger.
They have grown so big that they no longer simply suck blood but now actively hunt giant blue worms and suck them down like spaghetti. The worm it is eating is a whopping 78cm.
The new footage shows the leech detecting a worm’s trail and following the scent like a sniffer dog.
When it encounters its prey it quickly latches on and moves its lips up and down the iridescent blue body.
“It was either searching for an end to grab, or was working out whether it was too big to eat” said documentary director Paul Williams.
“When it found an end it started to suck. It was incredible.”
