    Nice cat Sofie, looking Serious.

    She, Fez, is a bit timid since she broke her leg. She is always a bit weary of Stella who thinks she should want to play and approaches her accordingly. So a bit serious yes. She's cool with people though.

    If there is anything I could say I like about cats, it's gotta be the eyes.

    Love your Fez, Sof! She reminds me of a much-loved tabby I used to have, with those huge eyes and that pretty white chin...

    Cynops synopsis...

    a Fire Belly Newt

    Ta Sofie. There's a lot to like about Fire Belly Newt's eyes, too
    - they have twice as many lives as a cat's eyes!

    ...the Japanese fire belly newt can regenerate its eye lens 18 times over a period of 16 years and retain its structural and functional properties.

    Newts are cute. This, however, is all about personality.

    Is that a trickle of blobfish drool- or some unfortunate prey headed for the little red lane?

    They used to spy on Newt. Now, they ignore each other.

    Heh, well, the mystery of the oceans, huh?! ;-)

    I take it you've all seen the video of how hagfish escape potential predators? It's bloody brilliant, but you may choose not to watch it over dinner.

    Ok so the blobfish makes me squeemish.

    Their skin sheds alot too. Very thin layers.

    And I agreed to do a dog thread. Must be mad.

    So here’s a cat.

    That is a very good photo Sofie. As are all the rest of course. If you like that sort of thing. ;-)

    Amazing how a "not bad" photo makes one take a few more. :)

    Hagfish generate an incredible amount of slime - they'll fill a 40litre bucket no trouble at all (we discovered this by experiment at Moeraki a looong time ago.)
    They are not popular among fishers - they wind themselves round your line/s and befoul them - and then no other fish will come near the lines. Good survivalists-

    Wow. Not a pretty solution, but it obviously works!

    Yep - and when I wrote 'they' I was talking about 1, medium-sized tuere-
    (I used this experiment in a novel that hasnt yet got out there...)

    Reminds me of Nationals front bench but that's another story.
    Hagfish, also known as the Glutinous hagfish, is one of my favourite fish, they have the wonderful ability to tie themselves in knots. You may not think the ability to tie oneself into a knot could have any useful purpose. However, if your diet consists of rotting carrion and you are too slimy to get a grip on your lunch then getting knotted is a perfect technique for ripping dead flesh from a rotting carcass. This is achieved by tying your body in a knot, grasping a mouthful of foetid flesh in your little teeth, then pulling your head through the knot, tearing the decomposing flesh from the dead bones of some unfortunate sea dweller.
    Sorry, no pictures.
    Ahh, the beauty of Nature.

    They do indeed – and they’ll use it to discommode themselves of a hook they may have become engaged with-
    incidentally, there were areas known as ‘hospitals’ off the Otago coast, because of hagfish & lamprey attacks. I dont know whether there still there – quite a while since I last fished off that coast (but I look forward to selling this place & retiring over there, and trying again.)
