I accidentally came upon this report about an apocalypse of Hagfish –
A truck carrying 7,500 pounds (3.4 tonnes) of hagfish – or slime eels – tipped over while trying to make a stop, tossing containers of slime-covered prehistoric fish all over Highway 101, according to The New York Times.
These slimy creatures are “hagfish”, or “slime eels”, which produce slime to protect themselves when stressed. They have remained virtually unchanged as a species for the last 300 million years.
As you can see, the hagfish don’t mess around when producing slime. A “single hagfish can fill a 5-gallon [18.9 litre] bucket with slime, seemingly instantly,” wrote Thaler.
I have never heard of Hagfish, or their slime. But they are fascinating creatures! Only watch this AFTER breakfast please so you can smile nicely.
