Editor: This is not a new video, but if morays hold any fascination for you, it’s not to be missed. For the record, the Green Moray Eel, Gymnothorax funebris, grows to a maximum of  8 feet (250 cm) and a weight of 64 pounds (29 kg). They can be aggressive and inflict severe bite wounds.

Captive eels can be unpredictable and should be treated with the utmost respect.
