Brave Diver Manages To Befriend A Vicious Moray Eel Over Years Of Contact
When Valerie Taylor first located the home of a spotted moray eel near Banda Island, Indonesia, the famed Australian diver and ocean conservationist tried to befriend the eel by offering it a fish. The eel did what eels usually do when humans approach: It hid. Taylor tried a few more times over the course of several years, to no avail.
One day, things changed. Taylor brought a fish, again. But this time, the eel came out and slithered around Taylor, accepting her piscine offering.
