Moray Eel

Moray Eel

Here’s another favorite from the Shedd Aquarium.  This guy came out of hiding during feeding time in the center Coral Reef tank.

We also spotted one in a much smaller tank, hiding and looking sinister….

  1. Moray eels are sinister. At least every time I see a picture of one, I can’t help thinking of the evil Flotsom & Jetsom from The Little Mermaid. Well, maybe that last one, with the chubby cheeks, might be smiley instead, but probably it’s a sinister smile.

    • They *are* sinister! It’s funny that you think the last one might be smiley – to me, it looks the scariest. I even named that file “sinister eel” when I was uploading it. Its smile makes it extra freaky….
