      1. You mean they are slimy ? and taste bitter. Posted one year ago
        1. Yes, they were so slimy, which grosses me out a bit. I read that the slime on this species has a mild flavor. But, I did not taste it. Posted one year ago
  2. Hi Christine! Can I use this image commercially? It is a beautiful picture. I am willing to pay a licencing fee
    I might not get notified when you respond, so it would be nice if you email me at deoreishanx@gmail.com
