Caption: Viper moray (Enchelynassa canina). X-ray of a section through a viper moray, showing its large jaws (upper left) and long spine. Moray eels (family Muraenidae) are legendary predators on coral reefs. Here, it is possible to see a second set of jaws in the 'throat', the gill arches, which are present in all fish. Gill arches support the gills, the major respiratory organ of fish. This specimen measures 71 centimetres in length.
