Description

Also known as Brummer's Moray, White Ribbon Moray, White Ribbon Moral Eel.

Found singly in reef crevices or buried in rubble or sand with just the head showing, over shallow reef flats and lagoons.
They feed nocturnally on crustaceans.
Length - 100cm
Depth - 1-8m
Widespread Indo-Pacific

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/10216
