Genuine Moray Eel Skull - 10cm
Up for grabs is what could well be the most unique and awesome skull we have in store! A genuine large Moray Eel skull featuring not one, but two sets of jaws and a significant length of vertebrate. This is a truly monster like skull from one of the marine world’s most formidable predators.
Just like the monster in Alien (1979), Moray Eels attack their prey with a hidden set of teeth. Inside the gullet are pair of concealed pharyngeal jaws that help the eel ensnare its prey. Whereas most predatory fish use suction to pull food down their throats, morays instead rely upon a two-step strategy. First, the outer jaws firmly grasp the target. Next, their pharyngeal set shoots forwards, bites the unfortunate victim, and pulls it into the throat.
Skulls measure approximately 9cm + 6cm vertebrate
