What a Sweet Way to Kill!
Once these weaponized insulins are absorbed, the fish go into insulin shock. The weaponized insulins do not allow any recovery, once inside the fish, the insulin function can’t be shut off, and the victim remains in hypoglycemic shock, unable to move, until the slowly moving predator ingests it.

Sandhi 善迪 says:Amazing spot. I love this part of knowledge: "Every small, free square inch is quickly occupied by Xeniidae corals.

Bryce David says:To whom it may concern, A whitelist approach to regulating which species are legally allowed to be obtained and traded will decimate fish farms and pet stores.
