Moray Eel

Moray EelA nocturnal predator which has developed a keen sense of smell due to poor eyesight, the moray eel feeds on damsel fish and cardinal fish hiding within the coral reefs. The octopus is another victim of the moray eel. Both of these creatures enjoy similar living spaces, so the eel will attack when it finds an octopus. The moray eel can reach 10 feet in length and weigh up to 75 pounds. They are also camouflaged inside and out; moray eels keep their mouths open in order to gather water to breathe.
