Friday 01 Feb 2008: Two sets of jaws
Moray eels have two sets of jaws: one ordinary and one at the back of their throat. The "throat jaws" move forward when a moray eel opens its mouth to grab a prey. The two sets of jaws are then used to work the food down the throat, because the eel cannot swallow by suction like other fish do.
