moray eel-770The Green Moray Eel, Gymnothorax funebris, is one of the largest members of the Eel family (Muraenidae). Its body has a maximum length in the wild of nearly eight feet with velvety-smooth sheens of green, yellow, and brown. Largely a nocturnal feeder, the Green Moray Eel will only be visible during the day when peering out from, under, or between some type of rock or protected structure. In the above photograph, this green moray eel has claimed the wreck of the Sea Emperor (an intentionally sunk barge serving as an artificial reef) as its home.

This photograph was taken during a research dive in Boca Raton, Florida, USA by CERF Vice-President, Chris Makowski ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. )
