 Description Green Moray - Gymnothorax funebris   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The green moray is nocturnal predator of fishes, crabs, cephalopods and shrimps that relies largely on its sense of smell to locate prey.
Green morays are adept at working their way in and out of the many tight crevices and holes of coral reefs where fishes and other organisms hide.
Although the leptocephalus larvae of the green moray is undescribed, leptocephali of the various species of moray in general are distinguishable by patterns of pigment, the number of trunk muscles (known as myomeres), and the position of the dorsal fin and the anus.

 Moray - Sacred Valley of the Incas - Cusco Peru
Moray is a great archaeological complex, formed by a system of platforms of enormous terraces that overlap, acquiring the shape of a gigantic theater.
In Moray they worked down, removing tons of stone and rocks and using thousands of workers for many generations, to give form to many groups of terracing in an almost perfect circular form.
It is possible that the word Moray comes from the term "a moray", corn harvesting or from "moraya" or "moray" which is the name for dehydrated potato.

Morays, classified under the family name Muraenidae, are probably the most diverse and widely distributed of eels.
This can mislead new divers into thinking morays are aggressive when in fact they will often retreat further into their holes when approached.
During reproduction the moray's eggs are released into the water where they develop into ribbon-like, transparent larvae that drift with the plankton for up to a year before transferring to the reef floor as miniature eels.

Morays range in size from the 20 cm Redface Eel Monopenchelys acuta, found in the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, to the huge 3.75 m Longtail Moray Strophidon sathete, found in the Indo-Pacific.
Morays have the ability to tie their bodies in knots and use this to gain leverage when tearing food.
The morays use anguilliform swimming to great effect when they dart forward out of a crevice to seize prey (invertebrates and fishes), and they can swim nearly as well backward, which is handy for entering into the shelter of a crevice or hole to avoid predators.

Moray thus is vindicated as a man ahead of his time, who simply built a device before any theory existed to explain its operation.
Moray explained that his device was based on the discovery of a mixture that would act as a one-way gate for the high frequency oscillations of space, so that the energy could go through the material more readily in one direction than another.
