Well, if this isn’t the grossest thing…!

The team recorded footage of a female worm-like amphibian, called a caecilian, allowing her young to peel off and eat her skin.

The video here.

As if these animals weren’t repulsive enough to begin with…(okay, my personal bias). Still.

    Ahhhhh ah ah ah


    Forget marsupials, those are by far the worst, most disgusting of all creatures. Worse than rat kings.

    Sorry for the serial commenting, but: “the larger species with lengths up to 1.5 m resemble snakes.”

    1 1/2 meters? EMILY, THAT’S MORE THAN FOUR FEET.

    I actually couldn’t watch it due to not having Windows, which I don’t feel sad about, haha
