Broomstick Chomper

I love scuba diving. It's one of my favorite hobbies. But I'll tell you what--coming across this face while perusing a sea wall might be enough to keep me out of the water for a long time.

Though the wolf eel is more or less harmless unless provoked, they can chomp a broomstick in half. Combine that with my natural propensity for provoking, and I don't think the wolf eel and I would get along. Thankfully, I don't bring my broomstick with me when I dive, so that's a none issue.

How did they find that out? Who the heck was sweeping the sea?

Lol.. that's what I'm sayin lesley.
Anywho, I think wolfeels are amazing! Sure their faces are a bit freaky, but watching them pretty much beg for food from divers in some videos I've watched was enough to make me just love these ugly guys.

I guess I'll have to leave my Poking Stick of Science at home when I'm exploring Wolf Eel Territory. ;)

Underwater, things are just like they are up here, except uglier.
