Siderea picta. Also known as Moray Eels, Peppered Eel, Moray, Painted Reef Eel, Paint-spotted Moray, Paint-spotted Moray, Sidereal Moray, Black-specked Reef Eel. Found singly in crevices of rocks, rubble and debris along shallow reef flats and shorelines. They feed nocturnally on fish, octopus and crustaceans. Morays open and close their mouths to move water through their gills for respiration. This behavior can often be seen as a threat especially towards divers, in fact this is far from the truth, they are very shy creatures and will only attack if provoked!
