New Zealand is .. a land of ... peculiar indigenous fauna, from its official
emblem, a small brown fowl that lays gigantic eggs in dark burrows, to the
little-known bythitid, a nocturnal, crevice-dwelling fish with a secretive
lifestyle, quite recently discovered in the shallow sea beneath a thick layer
of dark, tannic-stained freshwater in Milford Sound, a spectacular South Island
fiord, of a marine family more usually found at depths of 100 metres or more.
These shy creatures are officially allocated into one or two "tribes" on the
basis of the presence or absence of ossified parts in the penis: when two male
specimens were found, and found to be new to science, New Zealand scientists
called them Fiordichthys slartibartfasti: Fiord + ichthys (Greek for "fish")
and slartibartfasti, in honour of Adams' planet-designer. Style.
You're just jealous because the voices only talk to me.
