Clear Worm in Toilet is an Aquatic Earthworm

“I found this worm in my shower”, writes Diana about the thin, translucent worm in a toilet pictured below. “What is it? I have attached a photo and a short video. Thank you.” Upon zooming in on the photo, we can see that the worm is indeed a clear white color, with dark patches along its body, which we assume to be its entrails that are visible through its skin. There are many species of worms that resemble this one, and without much context, it is hard to pinpoint just one species. That said, the video Diana sent in is excellent, and very helpful – it shows us that the worm has to wriggle about to move, meaning it does not have legs.
