In detail

This moray eel is the largest species of moray eel that can be found.

Contrary to many people believe, moray eels are not bad or electric :). However, their teeth are pointing inwards, making the loophole more difficult!

Moray eels often hide in the crevices between the corals but sometimes go out to change their shelter.
