The Wolf Eel: The Old Man of the Sea

25 February 2017

Possibly not what you might want jumping out at you when you are on an ocean dive! This is the wolf eel – it can grow to eight feet long and has teeth that can easily crush human bone. Something to be avoided at all costs, then?  You might think so but then the truth is often stranger than fiction.  This old man of the sea turns out to be something of a pussycat and will gladly let divers stroke and feed it – and it’s just as curious about us as we are about it.  Find out more about the wolf eel over at the Ark in Space with great pictures and an awesome video to boot.
