  • Stitched Sealife: The Slender Snipe Eel has a whale of a time

    Posted by Deadly Knitshade on August 20, 2010

    Stitch London are teaming up with London’s Natural History Museum on August 27 to bring you the Stitch a Squid event.

    Six stitched specimens from the Deep Sea have escaped in the Museum. If you’re very quiet we can creep up on number 4 of the Stitched Sealife Six…

    The unwavering cheerfulness of the mysterious Slender Snipe Eel, sometimes known as the ‘Deep Sea Duck’, can be a little unsettling. This skinny fellow slid from the needles of Stitchette and camera-wielding stitched sealife stalker Deadly Knitshade.

    Happy happy happy happyhappyhappy HAPPY!

    Slipping along the seabed at depths of up to 2000 metres little is known about this slightly sinister shiny-eyed slip of an eel who can be 75 times longer than he’s wide. Slender indeed.

    Finding him floating in the deep sea darkness with his smileful of tiny sharp teeth may put investigators off pursuing enquires.

    Whale carcass! I love! Can I play? Can I? CAN I?

    He is rumoured hitch to rides on larger fish by sidling up and clamping his tiny teeth into their tails.

    What’s that on your shoulder?! AAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

    I come home with you now, human?

    Come back on Monday to follow the damp finprints of the next Deep Sea escapee story.

    You can also come along to the Natural History Museum August 27 to Stitch a Squid and join in the hunt for them.
