Moray Eels - The Dig, Atlantis Resort

This storage room for Atlantean pots and urns has become the perfect home for green moray eels Gymnothorax funebris. Eels are actually fish. The green color of these animals is produced by a yellow mucous layer, which overlays the darker blue skin. They grow to an impressive length of 6 ft.
