Slimy, disgusting, yet oddly touching (icky video!) Answered
One of the strangest meal-times in the animal kingdom has been caught on film by a BBC crew.
The team recorded footage of a female worm-like amphibian, called a caecilian (pronounced "Sicilian"), allowing her young to peel off and eat her skin.
The video is a bit odd-putting if you don't like slimy, wormy things, but fascinating nonetheless.
