Whitemouth Moray Eel/ Puhi ‘ōni‘o

Gymnothorax meleagris

Description:

Brown body with white spots of varying size per individual. I originally thought this was a different species from the first one I spotted (Pic 4) since the spots were so different.

Habitat:

Coral reefs in Hawai‘i, the Indo-Pacific, and Tropical Eastern Pacific.
