    I have always been intrigiued by this species of catfish, its called Candiru

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Candiru

    It has a nasty habit of cause extreme pain to unlucky bathers in the amazon river.

    I've heard of this fish, but I didn't know it was in the cat family.

    That's brutal! A fish that goes up your butt or other private openings and sets up camp! That's just not right!:eek:
