Happy Hagfish Day!

It's tough to keep up with all the ugly animal holidays this week, but we can't let Hagfish Day go without notice. At Whale Times, you can celebrate with a variety of craft activities, including (I am not making this up) a Hagfish Bouquet and Make Your Own Slime. Or if you're more the literary type, why not write your own Hagfish Haiku?

By the way, that's a photo of a whole bagfull o' hagfish dripping slime by Flickr user dirtsailor2003.

As usual the picture doesn't do the subject justice. I did a paper on Hagfish last year and coresponded with a scientist on the topic. They are both fascinating and creepy creatures.

A "Bagfull O' Hagfish" sounds like this year's hot Christmas toy.

Just spotted this article on research on the hagfish, including a video.

I saw that and am planning to post on it - I think the photo included definitely does it justice! But please indulge me while I enjoy seeing my book cover up there for a little while longer before I add another post.
