Amphibian eats mother’s skin – Boing Boing

Mmmm, yummy, Mummy! If we hadn’t been mammals, but some sort of insectoid, we’d call this “skin-feeding” or “tail-feeding.” I bet some skiffy author will end up creating an intelligent race that does just this. Suckling, or nibbling, it’s still kinda gross.
