Via @underwatervideoguide 💛🌀 "GREEN MORAY EEL!!! My what big teeth you have. Moray Eels are not considered aggressive, but will defend their lair and quickly bite in any perceived danger. I have a couple scars on my left hand to prove that. They are normally pretty shy and approachable. Watch the quick snap of the eel's jaw, after the yawn like move. This quick snap was a warning for me to keep my distance. I was a little too close for the eel, and it wanted to let me know to back off. I dont want to stress out the animal, so I kept my distance and respected the animals' space. Green moray eels average 6 feet in length. The eel in this video is around 6 feet. It was pretty big! They have been known to reach 8 feet in length and reach 65 pounds. Eels open and close their mouths in order to breathe. This motion along with the many sharp teeth make the image of the eel look pretty dangerous. It will not come after you unless you are spearfishing and have an easy meal on the end of your spear. You can normally approach them without any problems. There are over 80 species of eel. They can be eaten, but most eels skins are toxic and can kill humans. I guess that's why we never see them on the menu. Eels are an easy subject to shoot and normally provide some interesting action with their jaws moving, and when swimming through the reef.

Trying to get pics of bees and wasps in the yard when this guy lands on me to see what I’m up to. Stay relaxed and get a few up close pics. After a little rest he went back to work. Thankful no stings went down, I am allergic after all!
I was so happy to see this secretarybird last year. I'd never seen one in the wild before and after watching a documentary on this interesting character, I was so happy to actually see one walk past our cruiser thankfully not stabbing a snake to death! 😀👍🏼 Can't wait to get back in the Mara with my new East African Birds book 😂
