The Moray

I only had one shot of this Moray Eel...after I fired my strobes, he dove into his hole...usually, they stick around for awhile, and are not that shy...I think he didn't like my new mask I was wearing...or maybe I just smelled bad...you know, wet humans never smell good...

OH-MY-GOSH!
I never expect to be startled silly when I look through your photos, but I saw the eyeball and teeth first and I'm pretty sure my heart stopped beating for a few seconds!
Eels have teeth? I'm not sure why this surprises me, but it does.

Hi! the eel is VERY scary. Amazing beauty here. (Recently I took a photo of an eel in my friends tropical fish tank. It comes out when she approaches the tank thinking it's feeding time.)

Great capture Scotty. Sad that he moved off. Maybe another time you will share time for longer.
