Watch a moray eel swallow a potentially deadly pufferfish whole. The encounter was filmed by a diver in the Red Sea in Dahab, Egypt. Eels have two sets of teeth to help them catch prey, one to catch the fish, the other to simultaneously pull the prey further into its mouth. Most pufferfish are poisonous; they synthesize their deadly toxins from bacteria in the food they eat.
