The green moray is uniformly colored, ranging from olive green to greenish gray. Very small individuals may be much darker with a whitish chin. The body is stout and heavy. It is the largest moray in the Caribbean, reaching lengths of up to 8 feet (2.5 m). The green moray is abundant throughout the Caribbean, and is frequently seen in the waters of the Cayman Islands. It inhabits a variety of environments, including bays, mangroves and dock pilings, but is most often seen on coral reefs. The green moray will hide in holes or crevices during the day and come out to hunt for fishes and invertebrates at night. The green moray is often feared by divers and snorkelers because of its large size and fearsome teeth, but it is non-aggressive and can be carefully approached
