Mount Kinabalu, in Borneo is home to the giant red leech. A remarkable predator, that can grow to be 70cms long. On these densely forested slopes they are elusive and had never been filmed before. After several weeks of searching, a torrential rainstorm drew out the leaches prey - giant blue iridescent worms. The red leeches were not far behind. We watched in amazement as a leach, almost as long as my arm, latched onto its prey, its quivering lips felt up and down the worms body until it found an end to suck. Like a string of spaghetti, the worm was slowly devoured. #BBC #EarthOnLocation #Borneo #Leach #Horror #Wildlife #Worm #KInabalu #Mountain #Freaky #Predator #BBCEarth
