    Now wait for the Japanese to build a net big enough and catch them all. Over 100 new flavors of sushi.

    "During copulation, the male bites the female and hangs on. "He drinks her blood in return for giving her sperm," Dr Norman told The Sydney Morning Herald newspaper. The flesh of the two fish then fuses together and they remain permanently connected. "It's like sexual vampirism," Dr Norman said. "We found females with up to six males attached."

    Glad this doesn't happen to humans. Can you imagine every sex partner you've ever had permanently attached to you? :eek:
