Critter of the Week New Zealand Flatworm

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:30 pm on 8 May 2020

Doc's Nicola Toki introduces us to our critter this week - the New Zealand flatworm, a carnivorous terrestrial flatworm! Native to New Zealand, but an invasive species to Europe where they significantly reduce earthworm numbers.
