Moray Eels appear far more ferocious to an approaching diver than they are. Their large teeth and open mouths ( to permit them to pass water over their gills) seem daunting.
Moray Eels are nocturnal, leaving crevices in the reef at night to hunt. During the day Moray Eels tuck themselves into holes in the reef with just their heads sticking out, sometimes striking at passing prey. Moray Eels rely on an excellent sense of smell to lcoate and capture fish.Spot-face Morays may grow to 3-4 feet.<.p>
