grub a dub dub...
...disgusting. It was huge, not sure if that is depicted well in the photos. It wiggles around and looks like a huge detached thumb. Case found it in the compost pile. After doing a bit of research I learned it is good to have some, you just don't want to let them take over outside the compost, so I guess that means our compost pile is maturing nicely.
