These are seven common morays you will see diving in Playa del Carmen. Look inside caves, corals, holes to find them. They constantly open and close their mouth to draw water over the gills to aid respiration, people commonly belive that the moray will attack ! They are usually easy going, but remember never touch or harass any marine life. The green moray is the biggest and its lenght can be up to 2.50 m – 8.30 ft. The chain and goldentail are smaller up to 70 cm – 2.30 ft.
During the night, is when they use their smell to hunt. Morays are fish.
