2"+ Hair-like pale/white worm found in garden

Greensboro, NC(Zone 7b)

I pulled a piece of grass off a strawberry begonia leaf. Or so I thought!

I was just squatting down admiring the new flowers and I saw the thing start to move. Whaaaaa!?

Like a snake, except a worm. The closest I've come to reading something about it is called a horsehair or gordon worm.

I'm in NC zone 7b.

Weather mild/cool and wet. Conditions appropriate for this worm to be traveling. It can't be a snake. Figure it must be a parasite. creepy. Too small to take a picture. Just very curious. (me). Thanks!

Minot, ND
