It bites the victims and sucks their blood?
Hook tightly and will just loose after get full?
If you remove it before it gets full, you will get bleeding because it contains blood anti-coagulant?

Leech (Hirudinae)? 8)

Kill me if I am wrong :roll: :oops: :oops:

----- Class: Clitellata
-------- Subclass: Euhirudinea
----------- Ordo: Arhynchobdellidae
-------------- Subordo: Gnathobdellae (bloodsucking)
----------------- Family: Hirudidae (aquatic)
----------------- Family: Haemadipsidae (terrestrial)
-------------- Subordo: Pharyngobdellae (carnivorous)

Is it alive? Is it a substance from an organism?
Is it part of a cell?

A chemical, a mineral, hormone?
