This eel can reach almost 4 feet in length and is brownish grey in color. During the day, they hide in holes and ledges, venturing out at night to hunt.
The eel in these pictures is a local resident of the cove. He lives with several species of shrimp by day. Local divers can often see the shrimp cleaning the teeth of the eel or may even get their own fingers cleaned if they linger close by long enough!
