This makes me eel at ease

Actually this little moray is more ill at ease than I am. The open mouth isn't a threat. These eels open and close their mouths to pull water across their gills. That is the way they breath.

I was the one who wasn't breathing. I took these pictures while on a breath hold dive. No scuba. Just a big gulp~0~air at the surface and down I went.

The little snowflake eel is as harmless as it is beautiful. They don't have the needle sharp teeth of the moray.
