Of course, Milo did not free his own two prisoners, Lord Manos and Theodoras of Petropolis.

These Manos will eat anything except their own people or another aumakua.

The tank was filled with murderous-looking Manos, who appeared less than happy to be there and seemed to be continually evaluating the nutritional benefits of the various crew members who passed before them.
