These guys were really cool to see in Thailand, however (Taken in January):

The ones of the flower garden blow my mine. Also the one from Japan, you can always count on Asia for the crazy dragon look a likes. You guys are making me want to buy a camera.

For starters, great shots one and all!

And after looking at all those shots, I think we need to form sime sort of dental cooperative for the eels of the world. All of them have horrible orthodontal presentations.

Reference to this post....

I've been mildly watching this thread for a while now - and that last post jogged my memory about a video I saw online...

Giant Eel Bites Scuba Diver's Thumb Off - Video (http://www.maniacworld.com/Animal-Bites-scuba-divers-Thumb-off.html)

That is the dumbest thing I've ever seen any diver do. No I wasn't there, but still...jeesh. I feel bad for the guy, I really do...but he pressed his luck, way, WAY too far. Hope the photographers tipped him extremely well. They got some great shots I'm sure.
