The Uses of Hagfish

This is awesome.

There’s really nothing better than dorky, inquisitive biologists with strong stomachs. Just FYI, hagfish are pretty much the nastiest creatures I can think of. My favorite part is that though they obtain no cerebrum or cerebellum, they “will ‘sneeze’ when their nostrils clog with their own slime.”

I’d try a hagfish slime scone.

What is this?

    Interesting find. I’m not sure about cooking with the slime, let know how that goes for you, but the actual hagfish is pretty nasty looking. I imagine one of those being used as some sort of large parasite that infects humans in a sci-fi movie and takes control of our bodies. *shudders *
