This is the snapworm. The dorsal and ventral halves of this animal snap together and are only truly attached at the extreme posterior hinge. When both halves are attached, they can move much like an inchworm, but they spend most of their lives glued to trees by the posterior, hanging wide open. Whenever a fly, ant, or other insect enters its oral groove, attracted by the scent, the worm snaps closed and digests it. Snapworms are extremely plentiful in the tropical forests of planet Punlitorea, sometimes hundreds being found per tree and are themselves prey for larger animals, such as birds.
