New Species Discovered!

Microbiologists at the Floofman Laboratories (FLab) have revealed a new form of microscopic life, which they are calling the Pugbug (wrinklius blorpulii). Shown here in this 1000X magnified photo, the Pugbug is a parasitic organism that attaches itself to a host and demands constant belly rubs and walkies.

  12. I disagree, the Pugbug is not a parasitic organism, it is a symbiotic organism, in exchange for the belly rubs and walkies it gives back to its host unconditional love!

    Can’t wait to see if any subspecies are found. Of course we all know the most common species of the genus: Wrinklius wrinklius, commonly known as a sharpiepup.
