eels


Klingon gagh? No, just live river eels on the market (Lang Sơn, Vietnam)

This really looks like Gagh, the famous Klingon delicacy in the StarTrek TV series.­ Best eaten fresh and alive!

I just noticed that all the eels plunge their head down, so all you see are bodies and tails, no heads! I like the bubbles, too.­.­.­

Scale: about 60 cm (2 feet) from left to right.­
