OK, now you are going to force me to look up some stuff…

…on Moray eels…   like, how long do they usually get?  What color are they typically?  By gosh Ken was right… the Giant Moray reaches 3m in length (9.8 ft) and and weighs in at 60 lbs. The Slender Moray can get longer than that but isn’t as impressive…  But what’s really freaky is the second set of jaws that lie inside the mouth designed to pull prey into the digestive tract!  Ewww!  But in all the images that pop up, not a single one is pink!

And Mark is smart to give this thing a wide berth…  here’s a video of what seems like a ‘tame’ Moray biting a diver’s thumb off!!  OK I have to admit I couldn’t watch the whole thing!  He’s a dumb-ass anyway for feeding “Emma” sausages…  But it’s the final scene from “The Deep” where Louis Gossett Jr. gets his head crushed by a Moray, only slightly more interesting that the earlier scene where Jacqueline Bisset is entered in an underwater wet t-shirt contest where she is the only contestant!

I hope that Mark has brought a Geiger counter with him!  I suspect radiation poisoning!
