    Great job of light work .. Hey I just thought … Matt have you ever been bitten by one of these fellows ??

  • Hey Chuck….so sorry i havent replied sooner,I have never been bitten by one but have come close a couple of times now.They have a little warning sign when they have had enough by snapping their jaws together very hard which creates a very loud noise underwater.This gives you a real appreciation for the power of their jaws & I always move on at this point.I often think the only thing that saves me sometimes is the big camera housing between the Moray & myself,they seem to get mesmerized with their own reflection in the port,thanks as always for you comments & interest,cheers

    Wonderful composition MAtt and amazingly sharp for under water … not to mention the shaking of hands being confronted by such a creature. Those teeth …

    “What sharp teeth you have” !! You have done well Matt. If you had not said it was a night dive I would never have guessed.
