Indestructible Creatures Flatworms

Have you heard of a Flatworm?

They range in size from a grain of rice to a foot long, damn that would be a long ass worm. They are leaf-shaped creatures that usually live in water, many of them have an incredible ability to regenerate or regrow their body parts.

Now if these worms are chopped in half each half will become a whole new worm. In experiments scientists have even cut a flatworm into a hundred tiny parts and every part grew into a new worm.

Technical stuff The flatworms, flat worms, Platyhelminthes, Plathelminthes, or platyhelminths are a phylum of relatively simple bilaterian, unsegmented, soft-bodied invertebrates

In other family news I have Leo here all day as he sill feels sick but I can tell he is improving, I took him to a doctor this morning who said it is just a bug and he should be ok tomorrow. His mother has been feeling unwell today herself. Also Blain is off school with the same thing. I hope I don’t end up with it.
