The Carpet Flatworm is a free-living, Turbellerian flatworm that's not quite as flat as most other flatworms.

It can reach somewhere between 5 and 8 cm (2 to 3 in) long and its whole body, from head-like area to tail-type bit is covered in fleshy papillae, or "weird finger-things".
So they're more of a shaggy carpet flatworm than the smooth, colourful Persian Carpet Flatworm. Also their colours are reminiscent of such delicious loveliness as chocolate, vanilla and caramel.

Carpet Flatworms have been found all over the place from New Zealand to the Gulf of Mexico and South Africa to the Mediterranean. This is good! You never want to be too far from a chocolatey carpet. Even a wormy one.
