As the adult male reaches full size (approximately 1 metre), it begins to turn into a female, and turns yellow. It will then mate, lay eggs, and die within about a month. Due to this short lifespan, female ribbon eels are a relatively rare sight.
Females are yellow with a black anal fin with white margins on the fins. So, they are not all different species, they are just differently coloured, according to sex…. which they can change during their life times!
I keep seeing people do Mermay stuff so I figured I would sneak one in at the end of May here.
I’ve been using an iPad to draw lately so it was a good excuse to draw something just for me using nothing but the iPad. It is strange! It is very different than what I’m used to doing but I can see it being really helpful to get my process moving a little faster.
Nothing will replace my giant kindergartener sized 9B pencil though.
