What is your best guess as to this critter's identity?

Some clues:
  • Just over an inch long
  • found in the soil while planting flowers in Northern Illinois
  • 3 pairs of legs
  • one very cool "foot" on last segment that it uses to propel itself
  • eats slugs and snails (so it went back into the garden)
After photo will be posted in a month or so. Stay tuned.
