Caption: Giant moray eel (Gymnothorax javanicus) with a bluestreak cleaner wrasse (Labroides dimidiatus, by eel's mouth). Cleaner wrasses remove parasites from the bodies of other fish. The giant moray eel is the largest of the moray eels. It is found in the Indo-Pacific region, and reaches up to 3 metres in length. Here, only the head and front part of its elongated body is visible. Photographed in the Andaman Sea, Thailand.
