"Hydra Nation" Design:
Moray eels are mystical and such interesting creatures that they often become a highlight of scuba diving adventures.
These snake-like creatures belong to the Class of the Actinopterygii, the ray-finned fishes. Moray eels have a very poor vision so that they have to rely on chemoreception, a physiological response to chemical stimuli, to catch their food. Moray eels are very colorful. They can be black, gray, brown, yellow, green, blue, orange, or white. All these colors can appear as stripes, spots, or as other patterns on them. Some moray eels, such as the banded moray eel, can even change their colors to be camouflaged better.
With their two jaws they remind us of some kind of underwater alien. Moray eels have a regular jaw with big teeth often called the oral jaw. A second jaw, the pharyngeal jaw, sits in the throat. The regular oral jaw initially bites the prey, and the pharyngeal jaw lunges forward to grab the prey and pull it into the animal’s gullet. The pharyngeal teeth are pointed backwards so that ist is impossible to escape its grasp. Some moray eels have additional teeth on the top of their mouth to make pulling the prey in easier.
An interesting fact about green moray eels is (they were the basis for our design) that they are actually brown. The mucus covering their body gives the green moray eels their green-like appearance.
Because of these special characteristics we associate moray eels with a Hydra – in ancient Greek stories a creature with many heads that grow again when they are cut off.
