Okay kittenfish, that photo is darn adorable!

Tell someone not to do something, and they will do it. Namely me. I DID NOT need to know there is such a thing as a tounge eating louse. Arrrgghhh Google! I was lured by science.

Thanks for that. This will be the object of my dreams (read: nightmares) tonight.

At least I'm not the only one.
