Green Moray Eel (Gymnothorax funebris)
The divers are always careful when working with the moray eels, what with the eel's razor sharp teeth and all.
Green morays may look menacing, but they are fairly docile animals. We offer them food every day (though some eels will not eat for weeks on end), and because of that we are quick to notice any odd behavior or physical issues. See how a moray eel—with all those teeth—gets a check-up at the Aquarium.
