MuseumEdit

An information board in the aquarium will provide information about this fish.

"Moray eels can often be seen sticking just their heads out from between two rocks. When unsuspecting prey approaches, the dart out to snatch it up into their sharp-toothed mouths. Once moray eels have their teeth in you, it's hard to get away, making moray-eel bites no trifling matter. Their long, finless bodies are covered in tough, snakelike skin that often gets used as leather."

In real lifeEdit

MorayIRL

The Kidako Moray is a type of moray eel native to the Northwestern Pacific Ocean, specifically the ocean regions around Taiwan, parts of the Philippines, and southern Japan. This eel is usually dark-yellow with a spreading, treelike brown pattern and has been known to reach a maximum size of between 80 cm. It usually resides in crevices in shallow reefs. Like most eels, it may fast on occasion, but usually begins feeding in a week or two after feeding cessation began. They feed mainly on small fishes in the wild with an occasional invertebrate.
