      Hagfish..! Very cool, do they tie themselves into balls while feeding or are they given food that is too small..?

      Hagfish are great! Only ever seen them at The Deep in Hull, where they have Eptatretus burgeri. Also saw my first Chimaeras/Rabbitfish the same day (in fact only about 15min later) - Hydrolagus colliei. Not often you go to a zoo and see two new classes of vertebrate in less than half an hour!


      Great shot, by the way - I managed a few slightly out-of-focus shots but this is excellent!
