Giant Moray (Gymnothorax javanicus), Similan Island National Park, Thailand

Year: 2014 Taken by: Peter Prokosch
The giant moray is a species of moray eel found at reefs in the Indo-Pacific. In terms of body mass, it is the largest moray eel. The giant moray is widespread in the Indo-Pacific region. It is found in lagoons and seaward reefs. As the name suggests, this is a large eel, reaching up to 3 m in length and 30 kg in weight. While juveniles are tan in colour with large black spots, adults have black specks that grade into leopard-like spots behind the head and a black area surrounding the gill opening. The giant moray mainly feeds on fish and crustacean.
