The “alienlike” jaws of a moray eel and the remarkably fast strike speed of a puff adder snake are just two of the deadly weapons featured in Africa's Deadliest: Lethal Weapons. During mating season, male elephants duke it out with their massive tusks that grow to 10 feet long. A moray eel uses a second set of jaws in the back of its throat to snatch prey. The octopus camouflages itself until a hapless victim wanders to close.
