Moray Eels, sorta like Aliens without the acid blood…

And the babies that burst out of your stomach. But other than that, just like it! Nature.com is pointing to this study that shows that moray eels have a second set of jaws inside their mouths that pop out and grab their prey just like in Aliens! Exactly like it. Well, except it doesn’t really go further than their regular mouth. But still I’m counting it. You can check out the video below – the magic happens about 3/4 of the way through, but it’s a pretty short video. The embed is a little wonky, so if you can’t see the embed, click here for the vid.



Man, the eels got it all. They can electricute you and eat you, Alien style. Sweet. (via boingboing)
