The Downside of the Rainy Season

After a lengthy period of dry weather (for Kuranda!) the rainy season has arrived and with it some nasties. I was looking through the sliding glass door and found this creature making its way across the glass. The rains have awakened the inactive leeches and this fellow/lass was in search of a meal.
 
The underside of the leech viewed from inside the room.
From the topside it appeared different from the usual leeches we see around the place.
It was not long before its colleagues had hit their mark. Now each trip to the light sheet in sandals or thongs results in and anticipant fellow traveller.
