I was working on some paving stones and underneath some of them I ran across red worms I see regularly. As I ran across them I would pick them up and fling them in other parts of the garden where they would be more useful.
Under one stone I saw a creature that was about the same size (3-4" maybe) and shape as the worms but very shiny and dark. Possibly black. Thinking it was a worm I went to grab it but it slithered away like a snake very fast. I didn't get a good look and I never ran across anything like that before. Anyone know what it might have been? I'm in NJ, USA.
