You seem to forget or ignore that the term haggis is a generic, as much as
dinosaur can be , for instance. The marine creature you mention as "the"
haggis is yet but one insatance of the species.
Another branch, closer to birds, has been first described by R. Burns and
thence been called Haggis Haggis Robertiensis, or flying haggis in pain
Globally, variations of form are minimal in given ecosystems and a common
trait to the whole family was their mode of defense against predators. The
haggis would first use a repellent that would anesthesise the predators
eating apparatus, if the predator persisted in their attack, the haggis
would generally use their thick and rubbery outer skin to bounce off the
fangs and slip out of reach under the table.
Well, I better do a little more research on my sources.
