Conger eel

Scientific name: Conger conger

Dark gray and whitish on the belly. The activity of the conger eel begins at dusk, looking for prey coming out of its cleft in areas near the coast, where there is more variety of food. Their diet is based on fish, octopus and squid. They live in depths from 1 to 1,000 meters.

Curiosities

Although it is very resistant to wounds, it usually has scars caused by the suction cups of its favorite food, squid.
