Actually, I'm more amazed that they're being used to diagnose TB. I can just
imagine paying a visit to your local GP. "Coughing, eh? Just excuse me while
I release my giant pouch rat."

Chris, you have it all wrong...you won't be going to your GP, you
will be going to either your local PET STORE or VET!

I read not so long ago about using leeches or some such critter to clean
wounds. Evidentally, leeches can be used to remove tattoos, but I wouldn't
recommend it.

Oh wouldn't that add to the fun at a surgery!

Cheers,

Here in the US we use leeches to suck the life out of the US taxpayers!

That's right! Maggots for wounds and leeches for tattoos.
