MORAY EEL, GYMNOTHORAX SP.
This Lord Howe Island moray eel had turned someone’s trash to treasure by taking up residence in this discarded metal pipe. Endemic to the Lord Howe Island region, this individual was photographed in southern New South Wales suggesting a more poignant impact related to warming seas and climate change.
