Caption: Moray eel (lower left) with assorted reef fish and a hawksbill turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata, upper right) on a coral reef. Moray eels are large predatory fish that inhabit holes in reefs and rocky areas. They are mainly active by night, emerging from their holes to hunt other fish, cephalopods (such as octopus) and crustaceans. The hawksbill turtle is found in warm seas throughout the world, and feeds on a variety of foods, including water plants, sponges, crustaceans and carrion. Coral reefs form the basis of diverse marine ecosystems, and are found only in tropical waters.
