Surrogate Mothers and Their Cannibal Babies

Forget Rosemary's baby... that's the stuff of fiction... boring! Real life is way more interesting and, in this case, way more disturbing and chilling. Cichlid fish have evolved a very interesting mechanism for protecting their young: they hide them in their mouth when there are dangerous predators around. Catfish have upped the ante and evolved a mechanism not only perfectly suited for exploiting the cichlid's defenses but also perfectly and eerily suited to use the cichlid's defenses against her. You will be shocked...



Science fiction ain't got nothing on evolution!
