This animal is the candiru catfish. It is small and thin, and is virtually unable to be seen while in the water. It is known to lodge itself into the gills of other fish and, of course, is rather parasitic. There are accounts of candiru catfish finding their way into human bodies, although little research has been done to confirm these accounts.
It is good, though, to proceed with caution when dealing with candiru stories. Elements of the stories are often exaggerated for shock value.
