Leech Mustache! Err I mean retracted jaw πŸ˜˜πŸ¦‘
~
~
Leeches have a tri-segmented jaw/teeth rows that leave a β€œMercedes” logo bite mark 🍷
~
~
Pic 2: the dark circles on the lighter colored band are the leech peen and vageen (you were expecting maturity?? From ME?? Foolish)
~
~
All leeches are hermaphrodites, having both sets of sexual organs. However they still need to mate in order to produce offspring πŸ™πŸΌ

TINY SLURPS!!! Feeling bamboozled??? πŸ¦‘πŸ¦‘

That’s right LeechDaddy hit ya with a throwback earlier this week. That feeding was actually weeks ago!
~
~
This feeding was from Monday, plenty of coverage detailing it to follow. Please ask questions if you’re curious! This is only my second time feeding them on myself so I’m still learning a lot πŸ¦‘πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•
