See Amphibiosans.

Amphibiosans are from Amphibios 9 and strangely have no bones. However they are supported by a system of fluid filled bladders. Their bodies are very flexible and they aren't very strong. They can also change the color of their skin, similar to chameleons. Male Amphibiosans can become pregnant whilst they're in love with just the touch of a person's hand. When a Male mates with the soulmate, they go into a so-called:Receptive State,their skins then become Semi-Permiable membranes allowing the passage of genetic material. When its time..., the young come out from the males ... in the form of one big, lumpy puddle of what looks like frog or fish eggs, the offspring then emerge with the big-eyed head of an adult Amphibiosan and must survive to the swamp, where they will then go through a frog-like cycle at the end of which,they become land walking children.

Brain Slugs

See Brain Slugs.
Brain Slugs, attached to human hosts

The Brain Slugs are gelatinous parasites from the Brain Slug Planet. They attach themselves to the heads of sentient beings, hijacking their hosts' cognizance in the process, and try to trick other sentients into likewise acquiring brain slugs. They even have their own political party on Earth. Fry contracted a brain slug in "Raging Bender", but it starved and died as Fry's intelligence was insufficient to sustain it; this could also imply that the brain slugs feed off of the Delta brainwave, which all intelligent beings, save for Fry, are said to have.

Brain Spawn
