Our #OceanAnimalOfTheMonth channels the fierceness and majesty of the God of Mars himself 🌊🐉⚔️
Meet the dragon moray eel, a predator as striking as its namesake. Rarely seen and highly reclusive, the dragon moray eel makes its home in the rocky crevices of coral reefs, emerging mainly at night to hunt.
Spanning from the East Coast of Africa to the Polynesian islands, the dragon moray eel's habitat is as diverse as the unique set of marks on its skin. March, named after Mars, the god of war, is the perfect time to highlight these animals!
Some fast facts about the dragon moray eel:
🔱 Can grow up to 80 cm in length.
🛡️ Use their excellent sense of smell to compensate for poor eyesight.
🦞 Their diet is carnivorous, feasting on small fish and crustaceans.

      It truly looks like a dragon, it is pretty cool (or scary) to see that most fantastic creatures actually exist in nature

        @marine_stephan It really does! It's mind-blowing how many weird and wonderful creatures live in the ocean alone 😆

        😱 Scary, I wouldn't like to meet one of them at sea!! We need to protect biodiversity even when they are not cute and cuddly
