Pelican Eel (Eurypharynx pelecanoides)
The pelican eel has a large mouth that is reminiscent of a pelican’s. This mouth is much larger than the rest of its body and is loosely hinged, allowing for the fish to swallow prey larger than itself. Since encounters with prey in the deep sea can be sporadic and rare, this adaptation is important to ensure that the pelican eel is always ready to strike, regardless of the prey’s size. Despite this, analysis of the fish’s stomach reveals that they mostly dine on small crustaceans.
Additionally, the fish has an organ at the end of its tail which emits apink bioluminescent glow. The occasional red flashes are believed to attract prey.

I’m having so much fun with grey paper, it’s really great to work with white visible highlights for a change.
Also, as I’m a little fanatic for dragons and I needed more creatures and different things in my application portfolios it was perfect for me to test out new media combinations to create something more detailed and badass looking!
