Moray Eels have a second "alien" jaw

Post by groomporter » Sat Jul 11, 2009 4:09 pm

I saw in the March National Geographic a brief article explaining that moray eels have a second jaw in their throat that extends forward into its mouth kind of like the monsters in the "Alien" movies. The main jaws catch prey and the secondary jaws help draw the catch down their throat.
