It took me almost a week to get up the nerve to finish this. There are many types of moray eels. Quite a a few of them are gorgeously patterned. They all have two sets of jaws. The ones you see and another smaller set at the beginning of their throat. So while they can't really do much more damage than removing a digit or two, those digits really don't stand a chance. If I'm going to be fair, I really should only be as scared of eels as I am of turtles, because they are both capable of doing the same type of damage. However turtles do not hide in holes on the ocean floor and lunge out to surprise their prey. Thus I must conclude that eels are much much scarier. Much.
