I was also thinking there was a caecilian in the mix. As far as location goes - it says it's in the mountains of Japan. Thanks for the reply.

That's definately a land leech eating an earthworm, but I am unfamiliar with Japanese species so I cannot help beyond that.

I've seen leeches with the orange striping here in Ontario but never that large. That's a pretty big earthworm as well come to think of it.
