Tropical Wet Wading? Not in freshwater!


Snail parasites manifest themselves in the veins particularly those between the large intestine and liver, while there the males and females bond in what is referred to as "constant copulation" and produce so many eggs that their mass causes complications in the vital organs of humans...

Other than the ability to sustain constant copulation, I see absolutely no redeeming qualities in these organisms and will not be wading freshwater in the tropics ever again.

Thanks for the heads-up! I wasn't aware of this.

Are you going to make it to Acklins? I will be there from the 21st to the 3rd of March, then head over to Eleuthera until the 13th. That's the schedule for my carcass, my mind has already been there for weeks!
