Hagfishes swimming
A Hagfishes is a snake looking fish that has a scull, but not vertebrals. They can reach lengths of 50 cm and produce a sticky slime. Sometimes even fisherman's catch them while they ate there fish. The Hagfish manly live at the bottom of the sea and feed on dead and living fish. I wouldn't touch them because they can turn a bucket of water into slime in few minutes. They can even switch from sex if this is needed to protect the specie.
Here is a video where you can see hagfishes that are eating a dead Whale.

The next post is about The Anglerfish
