This is so awesomely disgustingly great I had to post it. Thereâ€™s a louse that consumes a fishâ€™s tongue and replaces it with itself. Cymothoa exigua was discovered inside the mouth of a red snapper bought from a London market. The louse had grabbed ahold of the tongue and slowly eaten it away until only a stub was left. It then latched onto the stub and became the fishâ€™s tongue â€” getting a free meal after having fed on the tongue artery while it ate away.
