  • Tongue-eating bug found in fish...



    http://news.bbc.co.uk/cbbcnews/hi/newsid_4...000/4209004.stm

    "A gross creature which gobbles up a fish's tongue and then replaces it with its own body has been found in Britain for the first time.

    The bug - which has the scientific name cymothoa exigua - was discovered inside the mouth of a red snapper bought from a London fishmonger.

    The 3.5cm creature had grabbed onto the fish's tongue and slowly ate away at it until only a stub was left.

    It then latched onto the stub and became the fish's "replacement tongue"."
    To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women.

    The bugs are usually found off the coast of California, so it's possible the fish was imported to the UK. [/b][/quote]
