Description
Description

Until you take a closer look, you may assume the slender snipe eel (Nemichthys scolopaceus) as a ribbon or string because of its thin body resembling a thread. The fish is cataloged under the family Nemichthyidae with bird-like beak spotting curving tips which help it easily capture food. This true eel is light-weight, nocturnal, with eyes larger than its body size, and populates the bathypelagic and mesopelagic zones besides being the only creature with a backbone having more vertebrae. Its bird beak bore it the name deep-sea duck, and its anas evolved to the degree of being adjacent to the throat.
