  • Nerocila acuminata is a parasitic isopod related to Cymothoa exigua, the infamous tongue-replacer. This isopod clings onto the skin of its fish host, feeding on blood and tissue. When it detects a potential host, it launches itself at the target fish like a guided torpedo, making precise directional and speed adjustments to ensure it lands on its target with claws outstretched . Upon contact, the isopod starts digging in, causing terrible, terrible damage to the skin of its fish.
