  • Immatures live in shallower and warmer waters. No difference in growth between sexes. Food: mostly scalops, echinoids (ref: NelsRoss1992)
  • Natural antifreeze keeps their blood moving fluidly in their very cold habitat. internal fertilization; male stays with nest and protects the eggs for 4 months, until the brood is independence. (ref: Wiki)
