A gross creature which gobbles up a fish's tongue and then replaces it with its own body has been found in Britain for the first time.
The bug - which has the scientific name cymothoa exigua - was discovered inside the mouth of a red snapper bought from a London fishmonger.

The 3.5cm creature had grabbed onto the fish's tongue and slowly ate away at it until only a stub was left.

It then latched onto the stub and became the fish's \"replacement tongue\".[/b]

damn! 😱That's scary
 
But don't be too freaked out - scientists say the creature does not pose any threat to humans and only attaches itself to fish tongues.[/b]
 
yeah....but i think they need a test case to check it on humans. somebody should offer their tongue.
