PARASITES: Blood Flukes (schistosoma) 2 Inch Round Magnet
The Schistosoma or "blood flukes" are possibly the most romantic of the endoparasitic worms, and among the few flatworms to have two distinct sexes. The thread-like female spends her entire life embedded in a groove along the larger, boatlike male, engaging in non-stop intercourse as they float within the host's blood vessels. The happy couple themselves cause negligible harm, but their thousands of spiny-shelled eggs trigger immunoreactions that can become life-threatening. Visit bogleech.com for more about parasites!
