Boy,that's a new one on me. I lost my snowflake last year and threw him away. I will be very sad if this was true and he could be reconstituted. He was pretty crispy when I found him.

Makes me kind of sick to think he might have still been alive. Had him for 5 years. He got thru a hole the size of a quarter.

Itsnot very long though don't beat yourself up and im sure it depends on the species. Only reason i have heard they can breath though their skin is because when deep sea fishing. anglers use them for bait and at times they get out on to the deck many will think they are dead just to stick them in a bucket with water and relize they wernt.

Mine was more like a colorful beef jerky when I found him. So I would be amazed if he was still with us. Use to freeze flies when I was little and seeing them come back after a month in with the frozen chicken tells you that strange things can happen.

I dive with these fish, so killing one is even harder. Beware, all you with moreys and even hawk fish. Keep the lid on and fasten it down. I had heard this eel hit the top before and thought the well placed brick would hold it all down. Even a small moray is amazingly strong.
