Isopod Parasite Eats Fish Tongue

Parasite eats fish's tongue.

This is one of the most sickest things I’ve seen in the world of fishing, just the sight of it on Sportman’s Habitat homepage, you’re probably going to want to skip our website.


But don’t close your browser just yet, this is quite fascinating to say the least.

What this isopod parasite does is attache it’s self to the fish’s tongue and slowly eats it over time.

After eating the tongue it proceeds to live inside the fish’s mouth.
Surprisingly, the fish doesn’t seem to suffer any severe impediment–just the loss of its tongue–and seems to have no trouble surviving with its new, far uglier tongue.

Supposedly there’s a horror film waiting to be made about this thing!

And I’m sure, just like Hollywood always does, they’ll probably have the isopod eat some chick with big boobs.

Most of the cases are found of the uninhabited Minquiers Islets, under the jurisdiction of Jersey, which is off the coast of Normandy, France. I just hope they don’t migrate over here to the States.
