Info

(Lowe, 1838)

Enchelycore anatina, also called Fangtooth moray is common in the eastern Atlantic. North from Ireland to Madeira and the Azores, the Canary Islands and the Cape Verde Islands to Ascension and St. Helena in the South. Occasionally there are reports on sightings from the coast of Israel in the Mediterranean.

Unfortunately, little is known about this by their bright yellow pattern rather conspicuous morey eel. In English it is called "Fangtooth Moray“ because of their elongated jaw set with "glassy" translucent teeth. Enchelycore anatina are usually found at depths around 45-50 meter on rocky, mostly fissured surfaces.
