River Monsters: Size Matters
Check out video of the Amazon's Deadliest River Monsters: http://go.discovery.com/?mkcpgn=ytapl2&url=http://animal.discovery.com/videos/river-monsters-most-dangerous/ Once inside another organism, the Candiru feeds on its host's blood, becoming increasingly swollen. The Candiru is the star of an urban legend — which turns out to be true — of a man who was urinating in the Amazon River when a 6-inch Candiru swam up his urine stream into his penis. The fish remained there for days, until a surgeon was able to remove it. Be on the lookout for Season 2 of RIVER MONSTERS with Jeremy Wade - Coming to Animal Planet in 2010!
