The Tongue-Eating Parasite
Gross science: This parasite crawls into a fish's mouth and replaces its tongue. Enough said. Note: In this video, we refer to the parasites as "protoandritic." The real word is "protandric." We take accuracy very seriously and we apologize for the error. Thank you to the viewer who pointed this out.
