Friday Parasites at Zygote Games

Y’all who are into things that wriggle and suck should be compulsive readers of Zygote Games, ’cause it’s awesome.

They run a Weekly Parasite series that is always worth a look. We’ve been treated to filarial worms, giant roundworms, intracellular bacterial parasites passed from mother to offspring, Giardia, and ew, tongue-eating isopods.

This week, Diane Kelly brings us a bright purple copepod hitching a ride on the gills of a beautiful sea slug.
