  1. Honeycomb is way too sweet of a name for a bad-ass creature like this. It should be named Jaguar underwater dragon or something like that :) Posted 5 years ago

      To the contrary of most believe, Moray Eels are very calm/sub-dued animal, they are also very shy and will withdrawn into the holes and crevices when approached.
