Candiru
« on: November 21, 2008, 12:22:11 PM »
Some time ago I watched a show on Animal Planet about the Candiru, which is a parasitic freshwater fish. They may be small, but I thought they'd qualify as Monstrous Animals!

Oh man, I saw a documentary about those nasty critters. They had to cut one out of a guys urethra. :-D

Those fish do it by mistake, the chemicals in human urine are simply similar to the chemicals of a fishes gills. So they mistake the human body for fish food. :-P
