My fish book notes that the large-spotted snake moray eel can be encountered both day and night, but is not often seen. That’s true in my experience. This is only the second one I’ve seen here and the first I’ve photographed.

      A guy I know got bitten by an eel and still bears the scar. Some eels are notoriously ill-tempered, but I’ve never had any problems with them. I don’t tend to get in their faces. This one seemed positively mellow.
