An Old Timey Public Service Announcement

via Moldy Chum

The Terrifying Toothpick Fish

"Unconcerned with the host's panicked thrashing, the firmly anchored parasite immediately nibbles a hole in a nearby artery with its needle-like teeth, feasting upon the bounty that gushes forth."

Needless to say a species like this could wipe out Washington State's wild carp population in just a few years. It could be the worst thing for the carp fishery since before there was a carp fishery.
Gentleman please, please make sure to check your urethra before wading the local carp flats if you have recently traveled from the Amazon.
