  1. whale sucker

    A whale sucker is a term referring to a species of remora (Echeneis naucrates), a type of fish that attaches itself to larger marine animals such as whales using a sucker-like organ located on its head. They are also known for attaching to ships, feeding off the scraps and leftovers from the host. Despite its name, it does not only attach to whales but also to other larger marine species. This symbiotic relationship allows them to travel great distances and stay protected from predators.
