Mouthbrooders are underwater aliens i assume
Cymothoa Exigua, the tongue-eating louse, is a very real mouthbrooder. The moment I read the name for these creatures, I shivered.Goofiness of the “mouthbrooders” name aside, this one sounds pretty interesting!
Yes. Which is why they would be able to spit their eggs. That doesn’t change the first image to come into my mind when reading about a deep sea parasite called a mouthbrooder.Mouthbrooding, also known as oral incubation and buccal incubation, is the care given by some groups of animals to their offspring by holding them in the mouth of the parent for extended periods of time. Although mouthbrooding is performed by a variety of different animals, such as the Darwin's frog, fishes are by far the most diverse mouthbrooders. Mouthbrooding has evolved independently in several different families of fish.
