Eurypharynx pelecanoides (Vaillant, 1882). A deep-sea fish rarely seen by humans, the pelican eel has an enormous mouth with long, slender jaws (nearly horizontal in this image) that allow it to swallow extremely large prey. The fish inside this pelican eel’s stomach (poking out near the tail) was its last supper. Size of specimen: 51 centimeters (20 inches)
