The turkey moray eel (Gymnothorax meleagris) is also known as the guineafowl moray and the whitemouth moray. Moray eels are efficient predators feeding mainly on fish. They have razor extremely sharp teeth and are capable of inflicting a painful bite. Larger species can remove the fingers of careless divers. In spite of this fact, these eels are usually timid in the wild. Some can even be hand fed by careful divers. The turkey moray eel grows to a maximum length of 4 feet (120 centimeters) and is common in the Indian and Pacific oceans.
