I've always loved Eels, not sure why. I recently discovered that Moray Eels, and Groups hunt in corporative groups, and found this behavior fascinating. You can read more about it HERE (http://news.mongabay.com/2006/1204-moray.html)

I was lucky enough to capture this behavior recently while Diving Palancar gardens in Cozumel last January.

These two were seen throughout our dive. Unfortunately they were between 80~90fsw, so we could not hang out as long as we would have liked to watch. But we did spend five or more minutes viewing these two as they quickly scanned the reef for pray.

Enjoy,

The picture is great and I learned something I didn't know. Now, I'll have to keep a closer eye out for the behavior
