Desert Muck Leech
|Desert Muck Leech|
|Voiced by||Maurice LaMarche|
|First appearance||Into the Wild Green Yonder|
These Leeches are descendants of the Dark Ones, who fought in the Arms Race of Evolution but only one survived the paving of the puddle that they lived in. This one later killed Frida Waterfall and Hutch Waterfall, but it would be killed by an Encyclopod and then gone forever after being eaten by Dr. Zoidberg.
- The Latin name given for the creature is "Cyprinodon martius", which comes from also Death Valley pupfish or in Latin, "Cyprinodon salinus". The "martius" in the Desert Muck Leech is purely a reference to the fact that it lives on Mars.
- Ken Keeler, (who wrote the film the Muck Leech was involved in), had a personal likeness for this pupfish, which could survive very harsh environments.
