Bite Once, Don't Let Go, Bite Twice. Can't Do It? This Animal Can.

How can an animal bite it’s prey once and then, without letting go, bite twice? The Moray Eel has a second set of jaws and can bite twice without letting go once.

This second set of jaws (pharyngeal jaws) rests in the throat of the eel waiting for the first bite by the Moray. Milliseconds after the Moray grabs its prey with its primary jaws this second jaw can expand to the width and height of the mouth chamber and extend out of the throat of the eel to bite the prey. Then with powerful muscle action the prey is pulled into the throat and digestive tract by this secondary jaw.

Most fish depend on powerful suction to bring prey into their mouths and digestive tracts. But the eel doesn’t have this ability so God gave it this survival method.

The complexity of this system is absolutely amazing. There must be a unique bone, cartilage, and tooth structure. There must be a powerful set of muscles to extend the jaw into the mouth, open/close the jaw, and then retract the prey into the throat. The nervous system must also be involved to control the whole process.

Every time there is a unique system introduced to science the mathematical possibility of atheistic evolution is decreased dramatically. Nothing is here by chance.
