Moray Eel (yellowmargin)

Coconut Island

When we got to Coconut Island, the boatman
took some fishheads to feed the Moray eel that
lives under the rocks where we tied up...I was
able to get the Moray chomping on part of the
fish! This eel was thicker than my thigh and
about as long as my arm! the fishbook says they
grow to four feet. Yeow!
