A Conversation for Candiru - the Vampire Fish
patriciaij Started conversation Jun 15, 2008
In spite of the fact that I'm many thousands of miles from the Amazon, can't swim and NEVER feel compelled to take a cool dip in any water that isn't chlorinated, I'm sitting here with my legs firmly crossed, squirming.
If anyone I know ever goes to the Amazon, I'm pretty sure this story WILL come up in conversation at the bon voyage party...
TRAVELLER: So, I'm going off on the adventure of a lifetime to travel up the Amazon.
ME (casually): Cool! Hey...ever heard about these tiny parasitic fish that can swim up your penis and eat your testicles? Try these hors d'oeuvres. They're very tasty...fish balls I think...

It was someone's (I can't quite remember who), squirming on another entry... Maybe the one about face mites, which lead to a comment about the penis fish... which I then vaguely* remembered having heard about from a friend, years back, who used to do ecology in the Amazon... which inspired me to write the entry
