|This moray eel is a juvenile--
about a foot long. As with most juveniles of a species,
its eyes are large in proportion to its body, and its
teeth are intact compared to older morays. Moray eel
teeth are noticably sharp and angled backward into the
mouth for a better hold on prey.
This photo was taken on a night dive as the moray was out foraging for food.
