My teacher asked us to find out why and how planarians earthworms move 
faster than planarians.  She didn't give us any info about planarians. We 
self teach as always. I look up planarians and there wasn't much info any 
where. I do know that they have to lubricate the surface they are crawling 
by exuding lots of their own slime. Maybe this is why they move so slow. 
Any information that you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
