I am surprised at the revulsion for the coconut crab - it seems to be pretty firmly planted on the good side of the arthropod divide

I have eaten more guinea pigs than I can remember now after seven months in Peru. Better than rabbit, not as good as chicken. lots of dark meat and little bones.

coconut crabs: i like them i just shudder to think about how if given the opportunity they would surely open up a baby's skull and casually help themselves to the brains

I was going to post this eye-leech, but it sounds like the loa loa worm has it beat.

tbf it wouldn't actually help itself to the brains after opening up the baby's skull, it would call its buddy first

then they would divvy up and share.

What is the fish that looks a lot like the viperfish but has giant, almost opaque eyeballs that are a solid milky white? And kind of a more elongated head? I had a picture book as a kid with a giant full page photo of two of their faces and it was the "scare yourself by turning to it" page for sure.

Maybe a different angle of the viperfish?

I think the toad with the holes is stealing this for me so far tbh.

xp yeah the 'there are holes in its flesh' thing is bringing up big primordial DNW repulsions in me, kinda like that lotus tit shop that was a good shock img a couple of years ago

Dayo then you may very well also be trypophobic! LOL if you GIS trypophobia that frog is one the first things that comes up. IT'S SO FUCKING AWFUL. Lotus breast image is one of the most revolting things ever imo.

xp - you mean the one with the see through head?

lol "the hole truth"

"common examples of trypophobia inducing items include lotus seed pods, lamprey eels, skin grafts and surinam toads"

see through head fish is cute, you can see what it's thinking, and it's thinking "I'm a cute motherfucker aren't I"

OMG I need to stop GISing this. I am itching all over now.

Aqua Backrat (ENBB), Tuesday, 18 May 2010 02:15 (3 years ago) Permalink

YES that is the fish I meant. I like him too.

Aqua Backrat (ENBB), Tuesday, 18 May 2010 02:16 (3 years ago) Permalink

okay I'm fine with holes but not holes in ppl's skin, you're right I need to stop GISing before my phobia extends to all things with holes like THE SPEAKER GRILL ON MY MACBOOK PRO AAAAAGH *burns macbook*

star nosed mole, meet rufous horseshoe bat

retarded candle burning at both ends (dyao), Tuesday, 18 May 2010 02:18 (3 years ago) Permalink

Yeah - I basically don't like clustered patterns of holes found in fuman/animal flesh. I also HATE lotus seed pods. Weird, I know but they just revolt me.

Aqua Backrat (ENBB), Tuesday, 18 May 2010 02:21 (3 years ago) Permalink

Other holes are fine though.

^^^ already on here @ #4 but deserves reiterating: lamprey eels will fuck you up

also i saw someone mention loa loa & filarial worms are FUCKED UP (google @ yr own risk) but ill rep for roundworms specifically Ascaris lumbricoides:

Ascaris lumbricoides is the giant roundworm of human, belonging to the phylum Nematoda. It is an ascarid nematode responsible for the disease ascariasis in human. It is the largest and most common parasitic worm in humans. A quarter of human population is estimated to be infected by this parasite. Ascariasis is prevalent worldwide and more so in tropical and subtropical countries.

It can reach a length of up to 35 cm

Yeah - I basically don't like clustered patterns of holes found in fuman/animal flesh. I also HATE lotus seed pods. Weird, I know but they just revolt me.

I am the same way, esp about the lotus seed pods, and I didn't even know it was a thing! Every once in a while i have a really awful dream along these lines the specifics of which I will not divulge here, and even thinking about it makes me kind of queasy and disturbed feeling.

Also, I snortOLed at "spidermerkin.jpg."

sinister chemical wisdom (Jenny), Tuesday, 18 May 2010 02:41 (3 years ago) Permalink

I didn't know it was a thing either until a friend told me about how she felt that way and I realized that I wasn't alone! Even just getting a quick glance at some of the images when I googled it for quoting purposes earlier had me nearly crawling out of my skin. *shudder*

ok uh

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/7235205.stm

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

Scientists have only recently discovered this bizarre parental behaviour.

The female caecilian's skin becomes thicker and more nutrient-rich when she bears offspring.

And the young have specialised teeth for tearing and removing it.
