Schwelmenella is actually supposed to be Shewanella – a typographical error.

“Holidaymaker, 29, has all five toes on her right foot amputated after catching a ‘bone-eating infection from a Thai FISH SPA”

Is the Schwelmenella mentioned in the article real or a hoax?

But to add to this scenario, I conversed with a bacteriologist who flagged that Mycobacteria would likely be lurking in such waters. Makes sense, since fish are undoubtedly held in stressful conditions, and fed insufficiently such that they try to “eat” dead skin from feet. These would render fish immunosuppressed and become prone to carry and amplify such diseases.

Are fish self-aware?

The small, tropical fish known as a cleaner wrasse has just joined the ranks of various mammals and birds that have passed a classic test for determining self-awareness.

Many animals we consider social and intelligent, such as dogs, cats, and octopuses, all fail the mirror test. Humans around the world also often struggle with it, with some cultures not passing until six years of age or older.
