Also known as Dark-spotted Moray, Dark-spotted Moray Eel, Fimbriated Moray Eel, Spotface Moray, Spot-faced Moray Eel, Yellowhead Moray Eel.
Found singly, pairs or with other morays (as in the picture with the White-eyed Moray) hiding in crevices and holes amongst debris, rock and rubble in caves and around harbours of protected inshore waters.
They feed nocturnally on crustaceans and fish.
Length - 80cm
Depth - 1-45m
Morays open and close their mouths to move water through their gills for respiration.
This behaviour can often be seen as a threat especially towards divers, in fact this is far from the truth, they are very shy creatures and will only attack if provoked! Ref: https://www.fishbase.se/summary/gymnothorax-fimbriatus.html
