A new moray eel - right under scientists' noses

Gymnothorax baranesi, a new species of moray eel, was just described from the Gulf of Aquaba in the Red Sea. The most interesting part is that this sizable fish was found very near a marine institute in waters thought to be thoroughly studied and known. Mother Nature still has her surprises.

Thanks to Loren Coleman for posting this item.
