Don't stick your finger in there

Wolf eels are not an eel at all. They are actually a fish.

And they can act like a friendly puppy if they grow accustomed to divers feeding them. The picture below shows us hand feeding Wendy a scallop. She didn't bite at it but opened her mouth and gently 'received' it.


Still it isn't wise to stick your finger in a wolf eel's mouth. Especially with a full grown wolf eel. They eat crabs, spiny sea urchins and clams, happily crunching shells and all. A finger wouldn't stand a chance in there. The front teeth hold while the molars grind.
