Hagfish Ties Itself Into a Knot- 2016 (Remastered!)

In our final remastered video honoring 15 years of ocean exploration, we’re bringing back the fan-favorite hagfish. Watch as the Corps of Exploration diving along the Cascadia Subduction Zone shine a light on this flexible marine animal. Hagfish are unique in that they have a skull but lack a vertebral column- lending to the bendy antics seen in this video. Hagfish are also known for their copious amounts of slime excreted from mucous glands in their skin.
