    Moray Eel Goes Hunting


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     While diving in Palancar reef in Cozumel, Mexico, 1lornie captured video of a moray eel hunting in the water on July 2014. Diving numerous times, he has seen eels hunt before, especially alongside sharks and groupers. While filming the eel, he was keeping an eye out for its partner, which turned out to be a larger grouper floating along the coral reef. “The current was very strong as you could see how my wife Rose was having trouble even stopping to take a picture. The eel swam like there was none. It was very difficult to keep up with him,” he said.

    While diving in Cozumel Mexico we came upon a free swimming Moray Eel. It was checking the holes for fish. Eels usually hunt with Grouper or Nurse Sharks. When I followed him I found his hunting partner. a large Grouper. the Eel swam against a strong current like there was none.
