Crab Racing

Apparently the rise of the Brazilian is leading to the demise of the dear pubic lice. From SMH, as usual:

A Dutch museum is having trouble getting its hands on a parasite that just about everybody else is anxious to avoid: pubic crabs.The Rotterdam Natural History Museum has appealed for somebody - anybody - to give it a single crab louse for its collection, amid fears they may be dying out.The donor's anonymity, said curator Kees Moeliker, is guaranteed.

Moeliker said that in essence, the lice's habitat is being threatened."When the bamboo forests that the Giant Panda lives in were cut down, the bear became threatened with extinction. Pubic lice can't live without pubic hair."
