The wonders of Nature

I went down for breakfast this morning to discover what addedentry and I genuinely believe was an entirely new species crawling around in the sink. (Cue sound of all Alice's friends cancelling dinner invitations.)

It was about 2cm long and sluglike in appearance, but with a segmented body and a short thin tail. Ordinarily I would have put it in a box to see what it did, but at that hour looking at it made me feel quite ill and so it had to be washed down the plughole after some Calvin & Hobbes-style 'eww! Ewwww! Eeeeww!!'-ing.

Any guesses? A web search for 'slimy household creatures' hasn't turned up anything useful.
