That's A-Moray

Why do Moray Eel mouths seem so horribly threatening in person? All I could focus on was the white mouth and sharp teeth this morning, but in the photo it almost looks harmless. I only dare get this close when my big underwater camera housing is between me and the eel.

Spotted Eagle Rays, on the other hand, don't frighten me in the least, even though one killed "The Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin a couple of years ago. Go figure.
