Jewel Moray Eel -- Sea of Cortez. With it's eye catching golden poka-dots atop a darker underlying skin tone, this moray is quite flashy. The moray finds a burrow in coral and typically hides it's body inside, poking it's head out to observe it's world and capture passing prey. They also free swim and are very graceful and quick swimmers. They open and close their mouths as a way of breathing, which can look menacing and threatening as you observe them. Make no mistake however, as they can attack if threatened or agitated.
