Found in the Western Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico, the Blackedge Eel is known to inhabit sea grass beds in addition to reef structures. They feed on medium sized fish and crabs.
The green moray is actually brown! The yellow tint of the mucus that covers its body, in combination with the drab background color, gives the fish its namesake green color.
The Snowflake Moray's head is often the only part of its body that is visible as it hides in the reef. They feed on crustaceans and can be found between corals and rocks of shallow reefs in the western Indo-Pacific region.
The Spotted Garden Eel lives in a single sandy burrow, which it rarely leaves. The burrow wall is coated by a slime secreted from their skin. They feed on plankton and krill and are found in the Pacific Ocean and the Red Sea in colonies that border coral reefs.
