Hagfish: Primitive Chordates

Last week in lab we looked at hagfish as an example of a primitive chordate.
New Scientist has an article with a great photo of the hagfish and a video of them repelling other fish. Another common name for the hagfish is "slime eel". Watch what happens when fish come up and bite the hagfish.
