White-eyed Moray Eel

Gymnothorax thyrsoideus


Morays open and close their mouths to move water through their gills for respiration. This behaviour can often be seen as a threat especially towards divers, in fact this is far from the truth, they are very shy creatures and will only attack if provoked!
