Have kept these fish in my aquariums. They are scary even when small.

Just remember my wife screaming at fresh water eels, at night in Florida. Never saw someone get out of the water quicker. Small in comparison

I think the green moray eel is more ferocious looking.

Beautiful creature.. You should check out Jeremy Wades vids (although I don’t agree with his catch and release style, he is a good chap)..

The most terrifying experience I had was coming face to face with a Moray Eel (about 6 1/2 feet) on accident which scuba diving off of Key Largo (about 12 miles out)... thankfully he ran away as fast as I did ;)

Interesting stuff.
