CRITTER: Hawai‘i the land of puhi — the moray eel

Terry Lilley / Special to The Garden Island

The rare dragon moray has super sharp teeth, and feeds on live, small fish.

While scuba diving in Palau, we came upon a 3-foot-long, speckled moray eel, and the divers with cameras lined up underwater to get a picture of it, while I just ignored the eel and kelp diving with the hopes of finding a giant humphead wrasse.
