Eel Hides in Coral
This coral-covered rocky outcrop is home to a diverse group of biology, including one large Moray Eel. They are what is known as a "cosmopolitan" species - they can be found around the world in many different regions of the ocean.
Within the Caribbean region, numerous unexplored seamounts punctuate the seafloor holding records of geologic, biologic and oceanographic processes over different time-scales. Seamounts are topographically and oceanographically complex with environmental characteristics that vary greatly and have often been suggested to be biodiversity hotspots, however, many of these hypotheses are only beginning to be explored in detail.
