I have for most parts, a watery existence. I can propel in the water by forcing out water that I have sucked in from my rectum. Yes, you guessed right, I have a multi-purpose rectum. In order to prevent fecal matter from contaminating the rectal cavity and messing up my oxygen intake, I excrete them in carefully processed packets. So, you squeamish types, relax.
I have an enlarged and a ‘teethed’ lower lip that I can shoot out at 1/100th of a second to as much as 1/3 of my body length to catch prey. This remarkable speed is achieved by internal hydraulics in my body. I have a voracious appetite and I am labelled as one of the top carnivores in freshwater habitats. Eventually, I transform into a beauty totally different to my rough looks and questionable ways of life.
Just who am I?
Answer this correctly and win a signed printed copy of any of the images in this blog. Multiple correct answers may necessitate a draw.
On other matters: I made a mistake in my previous post. That image was not shot at 5 times the life size. The one below was. It is uncropped image as the previous one.
