Moray eel

This eel was not happy I was there. This isn't a great shot, but considering I got one was a plus. As I tried to get closer for the shot, so did he, but not in a good way. He would like jut out of his hidey hole. I figured I had better quickly move on.

"Moray eel bites are infamously painful and can cause extensive bleeding. This is because they have teeth that jut backwards so that prey cannot easily escape. Moray eels also have a second set of jaws known as pharyngeal jaws that help them hold on to prey. Moray eel bites can range from minor to serious." “Moray eels are poisonous. Among all moray eels five species even can give a deadly bite."
