Shark Parasite

So…The isopod that lives in the eyes of
Greenland sharks is actually something I’m pretty interested in myself. Because
they’re only found in the eyes of the oldest living vertebrates, of
Greenland sharks. Greenland sharks live four hundred years. They probably breed around Greenland But they’re actually found worldwide. And they almost always have those isopods in their eyes. So they’re blind as adults. Which is bizarre.
