This little beauty is also known as a Tongue Eating Louse, which is disgusting as all holy hell. What happens is this little demonic parasite enters fish through the gills and attaches itself to the fish’s tongue. It severs the blood vessels in the fish’s tongue, causing the tongue to fall off. It then attaches itself to the stub of what was once its tongue and becomes the fish’s new tongue, and I want to throw up right now. I swear to God I can think of few things more repulsive than this little beast. Nature, man. Anyhoo, Cymothoa Exigua.

Yes,, it’s inside a fish’s mouth. Ewww.

Good God almighty.
