    fresh water. we put salt on this creature but it wasn't so scared of it.
    we thought it was a kind of leech and tey are supposed to be afraid of salt.

    No idea what it is but it looks cool. You should keep it as a pet and give it a name.

    Nah, it's not a type of leech, this is an annelid worm--segmented.

    Don't know what it is for sure though. Since it's so small, I'm guessing just some sort of underwater worm. Saltwater has hundreds of different types.
