An Atlantic puffin's tongue is specially adapted to allow it to carry many fish in its bill at one time. Atlantic puffins typically carry about 10 fish in their bills at one time, using their tongues to hold their catch against spines on their palate.

"The pelican eel, Eurypharynx pelecanoides, is a deep-sea fish rarely seen by humans, though they are occasionally caught in fishing nets. It is an eel-like fish and the only known member of the genus Eurypharynx and the family Eurypharyngidae. It belongs to the order Saccopharyngiformes, which is closely related to the true eels in Anguilliformes."


They Are Invisible

When eels are young, they are clear. No one knows for sure where they spawn, but many of them wind up in the northeastern fresh waters of the U.S. They are then sold to China at thousands of dollars by the pound, whereby they are raised in controlled ponds. From there, the vast majority are exported to Japan, packaged, and sold abroad as Japanese eel, which end up in sushi bars back to the States and around the world.
