Many people complain about a food baby after indulging in a big meal, but one woman actually became “pregnant” after consuming a common seafood dish. After eating some seemingly innocuous calamari and experiencing a sharp pain in her mouth, doctors found the 63-year-old’s oral cavity had become impregnated with 12 baby squid.
Upon examination, doctors discovered multiple “baby cephalopods” attached to the interior of the woman’s mouth. The pods, later identified as “squid spermatophores,” are sacks which have an apparatus inside that forcefully releases sperm, using a cement-like material that secures itself to a wall. Despite the squid being boiled before served, the cephalopod “spermatophores” were still alive and managed to penetrate the woman’s mouth.
A scientific paper reporting the incident from the National Center for Biotechnology Information in Bethesda, Maryland, states: “Twelve small, white spindle-shaped, bug-like organisms stuck in the mucous membrane of the tongue, cheek, and gingiva were completely removed, along with the affected mucosa.”
