Ron Silver Thanx, Jose. I would like to see the body.

José Martín Piñatel Ron Silver siempre están enterrados, esta foto es en la única que saca un poco más el cuerpo, viven solo asomando la cabeza: http://www.flickr.com/photos/pinatel/10808532573/

Ron Silver English?

José Martín Piñatel This fish lives always buried in sand which only rears its head. Do you understand?

Ron Silver Yes, just like many snake eels which is why I would like to see the body.

Suzan Meldonian rarely will see the body - they little chickens of the sea... :0
