Nature Can Be Disgusting

Postby JTWood » Mon Sep 14, 2009 9:54 pm

fishermen off the northern coast of France have found a large parasitic isopod (a relative of the louse) that has evolved a rather hideous method for survival in its host: it gets into the fish’s mouth and then devours its tongue. It then attaches itself at the back of the fish’s throat where it presumably feeds of whatever the fish normally eats. The really bizarre part is that the fish doesn’t seem to suffer any ill effects other than the loss of its tongue.

Image

That isopod is about one-inch long! X-I :-P :-{

Kind of looks like the aliens from Independence Day.

It looks like it's smiling and rubbing its hands evilly.

One time I thought I had something like that on my tongue, but it was just KCollins' girlfriend.
