The making and remaking of a worm

For those of you with some memory of high school biology, the Planaria should be familiar. It's a flat worm with a couple of eyespots; an unremarkable creature in most ways. Until you try to kill it, that is. Cut off a part, and it grows back. Slice it in half, and you eventually get two complete Planaria. Slice it most of the way down its main axis and you get the two headed beastlet.
