Animal of the day – 7/26/2011 – The Gulper Eel

The Gulper Eel

The animal of the day is the Gulper Eel.  (Did you know: Also known as Pelican Eels, these guys have jaws that are so loosely hinged, they can engulf fish many times larger than themselves!

They are poor swimmers, and use their bio luminescence to attract fish to them while they swim around with their mouths open!
