        Moray Eels in the Marshall Islands | Big Pacific: Voracious

        Peppered moray eels live on reefs all over the world, but halfway between Hawaii and Australia in the Marshall Islands, the peppered moray have developed an unusual hunting strategy. During low tide, these eels propel themselves from the familiarity of the water to hunt crabs on land. Moray eels are a type of elongated fish, so they need water to breathe and must continually dip themselves in the rock pools along the shore while pursuing a hunt. This behavioral adaptation has given the eels access to more plentiful and diverse food sources.
