Si eres pez, y especialmente un pargo lunarejo, este crustáceo de unos 4cm de largo podría ser tu peor pesadilla. Se aferra a la lengua de su anfitrión para alimentarse de la sangre que corre por ella para luego, una vez atrofiada, unirse a sus músculos para pasar a formar parte del cuerpo del pez. No causa otros problemas a su ‘víctima’ y es el único caso conocido de parásito capaz de sustituir con éxito un órgano de su anfitrión.

When my mom was a little girl, she would go fishing with my great-grandpa way out from shore in a little metal boat. She told me of a couple different times she went with him that a manta ray came up underneath their boat and you could see its wings on either side of the boat. She said it is a truly majestic creature to see.
