Anyone for leech crisps?

26th February 2011, Saturday

For anyone doubting my commemnts about the hardiness of medicinal leeches I was told this morning of a specimen that escaped from an aquarium and was missing for a “day or so”.  It was eventually retrieved in a very dehydrated state, and was described as “crisp”.  The unfortunate explorer was placed in water where it eventually revived.  Probably a much harsher environment than the damp mud at the base of a ditch!
