The Gulper Eel or also called “Eurypharynx pelecanoides ” is a strange looking creature with a big snout, that can reach a size of 2 to 6 feet. It seems to be an Eel with a big Pelican shaped mouth. However these fishes have big jaws and can consume bigger fishes then their own body size, because of the special mouth that is loosely hinged.
If it can open its mouth enough to eat bigger fishes then it will need to have a special stomach. He does have a special stomach that can stretch itself to fit for the big meal and because of its special mouth it has another name the ”Umbrella Mouth Gulper Eel”. The Gulper Eel also has a very special thin tail like whip. They appear everywhere over the world and can go to depths of 3000 m into the Aphotic zone. Just very few creatures can live here like for example the Vampire Squid.
