Spotted moray eel Gymnothorax moringa

Spotted moray eel Gymnothorax moringa

The spotted moray eel Gymnothorax moringa is medium to large. Other common names include conger, spotted eel, red moray, speckled moray, white cong, white jawed moray, white-chinned moray and white-jawed moray eel. Spotted eels have a long snake-like body, white or pale yellow in overall color with small overlapping reddish brown to purple brown spots. They are commonly 24 inches in length and can grow to 6.6 feet, and weigh 5.5 pounds. Morays use their second set of jaws to manipulate their food. Attached to the esophagus via strong muscles, these “pharyngeal” jaws reach forward into the mouth, grasp the prey item from the oral jaws, which release at that time, and pull it back to the muscles of the throat.
