..., we analyzed videos of Atlantic hagfish ( Myxine glutinosa ) and Pacific hagfish ( Eptatretus stoutii ) moving through narrow apertures in the lab. We measured changes in body width as the animals moved through these openings and documented the behaviors associated with this ability. We found...
