Outdoor Daily III

A sunny day and I’ve been peering into my pond, watching the most amazingly weird life form…

…a transluscent tube, between 7 and 12 mm long, with central rod looking like a gut, but that’s not all…

It lies still for a while, then suddenly it ejects its guts (perhaps the technical term would be proboscis), hooks into something and wriggles with great force.

It’s the only beast I’ve seen so far using its guts as its foot, too: hooking one end into something and dragging itself forward by retracting it again.

Help! What is this thing? Please get in contact if you can enlighten me!
