Avoid getting bitten by Moray Eels

The locals in the French Polynesia all claim the Moray Eels are more dangerous than the sharks.

“They’ll defend their territory if you get too close without realizing,” they warn. The Morays hide deep within the rocky reefs, and they don’t like visitors encroaching on their doorway.

However, when they are visible outside their holes, it is fun to watch their menacing stare, and admire their predatory teeth which softly gnaw as they breathe and survey the surroundings…

Michael and Sondra demonstrate how to observe them safely in this photo. Just don’t get too close 😉
