Whitemouth moray eel looking up

One thing I can rely on when I’m snorkeling is that when I’m looking down into the water there’s a very good chance something will be looking up at me. Most creatures in the water are constantly scanning for predators, or prey.

In this case, this whitemouth moray eel was in a typical position, wedged into a crack, and keeping a watchful eye on my movements.

      Actually, this one was just a little guy, maybe a foot or two long. I see eels quite often and, while they can bite, they’re not generally aggressive, so nothing to worry about unless I do something stupid.
