Leeches are a fascinating but misunderstood group of annelid worms. Most people know them for their antisocial behaviors but do not realize that many are devoted parents. This site is dedicated to providing information about the anatomy, biology, ecology, parental care and evolution of leeches.
Photos included in this site help to show some of the interesting traits of leeches and can be used with the permission of the author.
