California Moray in Kelp Forest!
A California moray eel was recently added to our Kelp Forest exhibit!
This species of moray, native to southern California (from Santa Barbara to Baja), varies in coloration from dark brown to green and can grow to be up to five feet in length!
California moray eels live in the crevices or holes along shallow reef areas. These eels feed mostly at night on crustaceans, octopuses, sea urchins and small fish.
Be sure to check back every Friday to find out what’s happening!
