I actually saw this description on the morphology of the moray eel in one of the Calgary free weeklies first, but Pharyngula has a better description plus I can actually link to it.

Cute title aside, I'm pretty sure H.R. Giger came up with his "Alien" design independently given that I've never seen this comparison before.
