Monogenea & Southern Fiddler Ray

   

 

Relationship: Parasitism

"Monogenea are small parasitic flatworms that attach to and feed on the skin of hosts, such as the southern fiddler ray.  When attached to a host, some flatworms may be virtually invisible to the human eye, which helps protect them from being eaten by other organisms."
