THE GULPER EEL+QUIZ

Today, I now present to you……

A RANDOM REALLY WEIRD DEEP-SEA ANIMAL THAT I LIKE!

Surprisingly, this little specimen up here is not our creature for today. It is actually…

THE GULPER EEL!

Look at this happy (not actually happy) little (not actually little) pelican eel (not a pelican nor an eel)!

That’s right, the gulper eel (or pelican eel, or Grandgousier) is a fish that lives in the ocean’s Twilight zone, which means that it lives 200-1000 meters under the ocean surface. Barely any light even reaches that deep!

As you can see, its main feature is its huge mouth. This is what earns it the name of Pelican eel. 

Basically, it opens its mouth as big as it can to catch fish in it, kinda like a whale shark. When it catches fish, it closes its mouth. However, it is still “inflated” with water while it does this, so from the outside it just looks like a giant awkward balloon with a tail.

There’s not much to talk about here, I just kind of like this fish. This corner is actually going to be a little short, as I have something else I need to do here. That is…
