Caption: Wolf-eel (Anarrhichthys ocellatus) with its mouth open, revealing some of its teeth. The wolf-eel can grow up to 250 centimetres in length, weigh up to 18 kilograms and dive to depths of over 220 metres. It inhabits rocky crevices, in subtidal areas, feeding on hard-shelled invertebrates and smaller fish. Wolf-eels that are disturbed by divers have been known to inflict a painful bite. Photographed off British Columbia, Canada.
