“Grossest Creatures” Photoset

My best friend sent me a link to this because she – obviously – knows me very, very well. It’s from a couple of years ago on Popular Science, and while some of these critters don’t really fit into the “gross” category for me, they are definitely all interesting.

Like this tongue louse.

Yes, you read that correctly. Upon first look at the image, I thought to myself, “Well that’s not terribly gross.” But then I read about it, and, truth be told, it made me gag a little. No pun intended.

Check out the awesome photoset here: Popular Science: Nature’s Grossest Creatures.

Oh, and if you want more freaky-deaky, by all means, go to Ugly Overload and eat your ugly-loving heart out.
