GIANT Earthworm

I picked up some LR today at the LFS and looped through one of the holes on the rock was what looked to be a 5 inch or so FAT earthworm... By the time I got it home is was still moving....

I noticed that when I got it in the tank it "retracted" .... not just shrunk but collapsed a little like a telescope would... it was really weird.... any idea what this might be???????

The LR probably came from the backyard of the LFS. LOL

Sounds like a peanut worm to me. I have several. They are cool.
