Moray eel (Muraena Helena)
A large, dangerous, eel growing up to 5 feet/1.5 metres in length, and found in rocky crevices in the Mediterranean. They emerge at night to attack their prey with extremely sharp teeth.
Culinary speaking, they are good cut into sections and poached - the bony tail should be avoided.
