A Cutthroat Eel is of the family of eels called Synaphobranchidae.
They are bottom-dwellers found in deep waters. The larvae (juvenile form) of a Cutthroat Eel has telescopic eyes.
Eels are eerie slimy creatures that look like half snake half fish or a weird combination of both. There is another type of eel called Snipe eel. As
they mature and grow, their anus actually moves to their throat. (LOL...does that mean they spout crap most of the time?)
Anyway, I thought you all would enjoy the perfect description of what the general Mainstream Meadia has become.
Cutthroat Eel is the Perfect Metaphor, don'cha think?!
I have learned that Cutthroat Eels are not the only ones whose "larvae" have telescopic eyes.
We now have telescopic eye implant technology with a camera! The impetus for developing such technology was to help people with macular degeneration,
but, of course, it has been co-opted for use in other areas.
