Real Super Rare Moray Eel Skull W/ 2nd Jaw Taxidermy Snake Fish Skeleton Weird:
You are offerding on the skull of a real moray eel. This eel species is the peppered moray, Gymnothorax pictus. The eel used to make this was legally taken off the coast of Hawaii by a commercial fisherman. The moray eel is one of the most vicious predators of the tropical reef. The peppered moray is among the most aggressive of all moray eels. It is known to leap out of the water at night time to catch crabs sitting on rocks. Interestingly the moray eel also has a second set of jaws called pharyngeal jaws which are located in its throat. When the eel catches its prey, these pharyngeal jaws function to drag the prey into its stomach. This skull is complete with the pharyngeal jaws. (Note that they are not physically attached to the skeleton). The skull in the pictures is the one you are offerding on. Several of the teeth are missing probably from when it was grabbing crabs. The skull with the attached vertebrae measures about 6 inches in length. Moray eel taxidermy is valuable and very rare to come across. I ship the business day after receiving payment. This will be packaged very carefully and I guarantee it will arrive safely. offerding starts at 1 penny with so have fun!
