WhyReef - Fun Facts
The giant moray is the biggest moray eel in the Pacific, and can grow up to 3 meters (almost 10 feet) in length! It is a fierce predator, and has been known to attack humans, but only when we bother them. When you see the giant moray, it might look like it is always opening and closing its mouth, but it’s not doing this to be scary! It has to open and close its mouth so that water can pass over its gills and allow it to breathe.
