I was reading about the life cycle of parasites. This seemed interesting. The upload feature resized it so it is too small. I will read it some more and discuss it.

From the related Wikipedia article: "It has been discovered that each final host species is home to its own biochemically and genetically identifiable sibling species of Anisakis spp., which is reproductively isolated."

So if I get infected I will be starting a new species? Very interesting find.
