‘There’s always something not quite right at your wedding, right?’ Mrs. Wise captioned the video of her.

Surprised commenters initially said they thought Mrs Wise had started her period, which is what she thought too, until she found the parasite.

His video showed the aftermath of the leech removal: a thick bandage wrapped around his knee, with Band-Aids and tissue paper scattered on the floor.

Ms Wise said the property where they were married, in the hinterland of the Gold Coast, had heavy rain which created the best conditions for leeches.

“Every day I open TikTok and get another reason not to visit Australia,” one woman joked in the comments.

Leeches are not limited to remote locations. Heavy rains last year caused an army of leeches to invade Sydney’s backyards.

Leeches thrive in moist conditions and wait for mammals to pass so they can latch on and crawl to a spot on their hosts’ skin where they won’t be disturbed to start feasting.

The 'opportunistic' worms latch onto pets and people with their sharp jaws, but their bite is generally not dangerous to humans.

They release an analgesic chemical so that the host does not feel that they are drawing blood.

Hikers are advised not to walk bare-legged in wet conditions to prevent leeches from getting close to their feet and toes, where they can hide for many hours.

Waterproof leggings are recommended protection against unwanted stowaways.

WHAT ARE LEECHES?

Leeches are a species of blood-sucking worms that live in water or on land.

They can be found almost anywhere in Australia, but especially in moist habitats.

They feed by sucking the blood of fish, frogs, lizards, birds and humans.

The length of a leech can vary from 7 mm to 30 mm.

Blood is an important food source for leeches to survive and reproduce

Because of this, leeches like to bite without causing pain or being removed.

Leeches can swell to five to ten times their body weight when full of blood.

Its bite is not usually dangerous for humans but it can cause itching
