Woman gets pregnant with Baby-Squid from eating Calamari

Eine Dame in Korea hat in ihrem Mund 12 Babykraken geboren, nachdem sie eine Portion Calamari gegessen hat. Die Originalquelle ist die Daily Mail, das Paper im National Center for Biotechnology Information gibt es allerdings wirklich und hat 'nen tollen Namen: Penetration of the oral mucosa by parasite-like sperm bags of squid: a case report in a Korean woman. Jetzt hab' ich Hunger (tatsächlich).

A 63-year-old woman became 'pregnant' with 12 baby squid after eating calamari, according to a claim in a bio-tech report. The real-life 'octo-mum', from South Korea, was eating a portion of cooked whole squid when she felt a sharp pain in her mouth. The bizarre claim has been made in a scientific paper from the National Center for Biotechnology Information in Bethesda, Maryland. The lady told doctors that she could feel something in her mouth which they described as 'bug-like organisms'.

When examined, the doctors found 'baby cephalopods' attached to her mouth. These are small pods, covered in a cement-like material to make them stick. Inside the pods is an 'ejaculatory apparatus' and sperm - with the apparatus expelling the sperm quite forcefully. After the victim of the 'attack' was hospitalised, doctors removed the baby cephalopods from her gums, tongue and cheek. It was only then that the pods were formally identified as 'squid spermatophores.' The Center's paper says: 'She did not swallow the portion, but spat it out immediately.
