Pelican Fish

Pelican-Fish, a deep-sea eel-like fish, with large head and exceedingly wide gape, described in 1882. In the following year Gastrotomus bairdii, of somewhat similar structure, was discovered. These are probably allied to the genus Saccopharynx, deep-sea eels, remarkable for swallowing fish larger than themselves.
