    Japanese/Chinese Giant salamander (6.5ft/ 2m long)

    the parasitic Candiru catfish
    Do not swim in the amazon naked - it swims itself into peoples arses and imbeds itself inside.
    Even worse it can get lodged in the head of the penis, and feed of fyour blood:

    all sharks are blinded by a parasite (hence you can approach them). Noone really knows how they
    are able to catch quick moving seals.

    Bizarre Tongue-Eating Parasite Discovered Off the Jersey Coast.

    A rare tongue-eating parasite has been found off the Jersey coast (not the New Jersey, the Old Jersey).

    [​IMG]

    This parasite buries into a fishes mouth, then eats its tongue and replaces it with itself. Sounds like a lovely experience.
    Marine researcher Paul Chambers, who was on the boat when it was found, describes the parasite:
    Really quite large, really quite hideous – if you turn it over its got dozens of these really sharp, nasty claws underneath and I thought ‘that’s a bit of a nasty beast’.
    Apparently there’s not too much ill effect to the fish itself except it’s lost its tongue.
    Not much ill effect… except losing its tongue. Good one, Mr. Chambers.

    [​IMG]

    These sorts of creatures make sense through the mechanism of evolution, but not through intelligent design. When the Bible said that “the attributes of God can be clearly seen through nature,” you have to wonder what those attributes would be when you ponder a tongue-eating parasite.
    Thankfully, these sorts of things are not a theological puzzle — they’re just cool new scientific discoveries.

    Relatively certain that it is an Alligator Gar. Evil looking regardless.

    The naked Mole (Heterocephalus glaber), also known as the sand puppy or desert mole rat, is a burrowing rodent native to parts of East Africa and the only species currently classified in the genus Heterocephalus. It is one of only two known eusocial mammals (the other being the Damamarland Mole Rat and has a highly unusual set of physical traits that enables it to thrive in a harsh, underground environment, including a lack of pain sensation in its skin and a very low metabolism
