I imagine if a big fish tries to eat the hag, It would just turn into a big fat lewgee and he bigger fish would have to hork it out.

Interesting how that works. The water progressively got lower every time he did it.

This fish is really cool. It also has the ability to tie itself in a knot and move the knot down its body to push away from things that have grabbed its tail.

Here`s a video.

The hagfish does not produce the slime itself. As a defense mechanism, it spews out some type of protein, that bonds the water together with an awesome effect.

Should the hagfish get swallowed by a bigger fish, the slime will be produced, and might allow the hagfish to escape by slithering out, or it might clog the gills of the predator.

It is a very unique defense mechanism. I love it.
