Well, fuck shit and damn.


The anglerfish’s appearance is scary enough, but its mating habits truly set it apart as among the weirdest of the weird sea creatures.  The male anglerfish bites into a female’s skin, releases an enzyme that digests the skin of his mouth and her body to fuse them together, and then atrophies into nothing but a pair of gonads, becoming a parasitic sperm factory.




THAT'S NOT RIGHT!!!!

Yeah, I love how people always want to know what these discoveries mean for human sexuality.  :lulz:

I'd love to lie, but in truth it means absolutely nothing.

Cymothoa exigua.

It's a parasite that eats a fish tongue until the tongue is atrophied and falls off.  Then the little bugger stays there and acts as the fish's tongue.

That's awesome. Although I'm a little more surprised to learn that fish actually have tongues. Sometimes I regret taking no biology courses.

If they didn't have tongues, they wouldn't be able to whistle.
