Green Moray Eel / Green Moray / Black Moray / Green Cong / Green Conger / Green Eel (Gymnothorax funebris) Gaping, Florida.  Moray eels gape to facilitate water flow over the small spherical gills.  The scaleless, thick skin is covered by a layer of yellowish mucus that protects the eel from parasites and diseases.  The dark ground color of the skin in combination with the yellowish mucus gives the Green Moray the green tint for which it is named.  At a maximum size of 8 ft (2.5 m) and 65 lbs (29 kg), the Green Moray is one of the largest moray eels.  Ciguatera poisoning in humans has been reported as a result of consumption of large Green Morays.  Ciguatoxin originates in dinoflagellates (microalgae) found on dead corals.  Herbivorous fish accumulate the toxin by feeding on the corals and microalgae, and the toxin is further concentrated in predatory fish that feed on the herbivorous fishes.  Range: western Atlantic Ocean from New Jersey to Bermuda, and the northern Gulf of Mexico southward to Brazil.
