Moray Eel, Subic , The Philippines

The spotted moray (Gymnothorax moringa) is a medium to large moray eel also known as conger or speckled moray eel and are found in the Pacific and Indian ocean. Spotted eels have a long snake -like body and usually hide in narrow crevices and holes in reef structures with only their heads peeking out. Spotted morays can reach a length of about six feet( 1. 8 m).  They are active during the day, feeding on octopus, crustacheans or fish  at or near the sea bottom. Their bite can be dangerous to divers due to damage caused by the pull-back effect of the bite itself, and potential toxins that may be released into the wound.
