Look Closely In Your Tuna Fish Cans, You Could Find An Extra Critter











A mother in the United Kingdom got more then she bargained for when she opened a can of Princes Tuna.

According to the Nottingham Post, Zoe Butler, 28-year-old mother of two found a creature looking back at her from inside the can after opening it.

The Post also says that Butler had complained to the company, and kept it in the tin as she waited for a reply.

The company has apologized and is investigating.

According to The Telegraph, the Natural History Museum believes the creature was likely a tongue eating louse (Cymothoa exigua), a parasite that lives inside a fish’s body and attaches to the tongue.

The tuna company is still investigating the matter.
