Hyaline Hiatus

As you may have noticed, there has been little activity on this blog in the past month. Unfortunately there is much to do in fleshspace. I've been scrambling around in the lab, getting things in order, and preparing for a scientific conference this coming weekend. I'll be giving a talk, and therefore will devote my time to that. More fun-filled musings from the inside of my head to follow soon. In the meantime, I'd like to share this delightful video clip with all of you. It features some of the best ever footage of a most prehistoric looking fish, the frilled shark, Chlamydoselachus anguineus. Although hardly fresh news (the shark was filmed off the coast of Japan about a year ago) it is still quite mesmerizing and an elegant reminder of how little we now about the things that stir in the depths below. Enjoy.
