In case you haven’t heard, the human body is home to various animal species dwelling in many different organs. Take head lice, for example; these tiny insects live in your hair.
They eat, sleep, defecate on top of your head, and drink blood from your scalp. While these animals are more common in elementary school children, some adults have them too.
They are not usually dangerous, just itchy and contagious. And then there are face mites, also known as Demodex, which essentially are tiny spiders living on your face.
By age 60, you probably have accumulated a couple of thousands of them. They eat dead skin cells and drink the oil, so they are helpful for people.
Of course, let us not forget about at least 500 species of bacteria that live in the gut. All of those are normal.
That said, there can be other unusual, creepy animals who made their way into the human body. The following stories are outright strange and disturbing.
10 Squid In The Mouth
That doesn’t sound too bizarre indeed because squid is a pretty standard menu in seafood restaurants anywhere.
A 63-year-old woman in South Korea was having something similar back in June 2012, but this time she ordered a partially cooked squid instead.
When enjoying her meal, she felt a pricking sensation in her mouth, so she spat the squid out.
A doctor’s visit revealed that one of the squids had impregnated her gums, cheeks, and tongue. The doctor removed a sperm sack along with twelve spindle-shaped organisms from her mouth.
9 Snail Knee
A 4-year-old, Paul Franklin, was having a great time on a beach with his family. He then tripped, fell, and skinned his right knee.
It was nothing too wrong for a toddler; Band-Aid on the knee was like a badge of honor to young children.
Fast forward a few weeks, the knee developed a severe infection. A black bump was growing inside little Paul’s knee that her mom decided to squeeze it out. What came out of the disease was none other than a sea snail.
