CLOWNFISH OPENS WIDE TO REVEAL A CREEPY INTRUDER

The louse-like parasite, which entered through the gills of the small fish, is now so big that its stripy, orange host can barely close its mouth. The unfortunate clownfish was spotted by 44-year-old photographer and law professor Lars Oliver Michaelis in the shallow waters of the Lembeh Strait in North Sulawesi, Indonesia.
