Not sure what this bug is yet...

About a week or two ago I was over a friends house and noticed this weird little bug on my van... Weird in that it moved around like a leech would... I had some 'pods'(tubes to hold paintballs in) in my van so I put the critter in one so I could look at it later... well, I forgot about it. I brought it up from the van yesterday and though it wasn't moving, it didn't look dead. Well today I went ahead and put one drop of water on it and a short while later it was moving again.
These aren't the best pictures, and you can't tell how it moves by the pictures... it's interesting to say the least though. Hopefully I can figure out what it is.
Here's its back...

I flipped it over and got this bad picture of its underside before it flipped back over.

eh, it was so small... maybe a half inch long... you probably wouldn't have noticed it...
I thought it was interesting... of course, it moves sort of like a leech would, and I find leeches quite fascinating myself...
