Moray Eel

IMG_3854 copyI’ve seen several moray eels this dive season. Actually, we saw two enormous ones. I mean big enough that I might have been considered a meal even at my size. The problem is scale. Size is relative. And there’s not much for reference. But believe me when I say I’ve seen some big fish. This one was about average. I actually found him myself. Head poking out, he was opening his mouth. Hey, aside from the sharp front teeth, he doesn’t look all that intimidating. Really?!
