Green Moray Eels
The green moray eel (Gumnothorax funebris) is found in shallow waters of the Western Atlantic Ocean, the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. They are typically found on coral reefs and rocky shorelines.
They are a greenish yellow color due to a mucus they secrete in order to protect themselves from disease and parasites.
Green moray eels average about 6 feet in length and 30 pounds.
They typically eat small fish, squid, octopus, crabs and shrimp. Due to bad eyesight, they rely on smell to hunt their prey.
Japanese Sea Nettles
The Japanese sea nettle (Chrysaora pacifica) is found in the Southwest Pacific Ocean around Japan.
Japanese sea nettles' medusa - also called an umbrella or dome - ranges from gold to red in color and features a striped pattern down the sides. Their medusa can reach up to 12 inches in diameter and their tentacles can grow up to 10 feet long!
They prey on comb jellies, as well as, small fish, brine shrimp eggs and other zooplankton.
The average life span of a Japanese sea nettle is 1 to 2 years.
