Hello everyone! This Tuesday we’ll have a true monster, a monster from reality. Say hello to the Candiru.
The candiru is a parasitic freshwater fish, belonging to the group called catfish. It lives in the Amazon river were it, if possible searches for a host it can feed upon. How is the Candiru a parasite then you might ask? Well, this small catfish swims up your rectum, vagina or penis and hangs on. If it crawls up your urethra you need to get the monster surgical removed, since it is barbed.
Normally the Candiru searches for a big fish where it will attach itself to the gills and suck blood. But hey, it’s just a fish, it can make mistakes! So if you’re in the Amazon river and need to pee, for your own sake get out of the water first!!!
What a monster, huh? And this one exists! If you guys have suggestions for other creatures let me know in the comments :)
