The Kid Should See This

The rippling locomotion of the Ribbon Eel (Rhinomuraena quaesita)

Behold the ribbon eel! The Ribbon Eel or Rhinomuraena quaesita is native to the Indian and Pacific oceans. This one was filmed in the waters of Indonesia.

The ribbon eel is an elegant creature bearing a resemblance to a mythical Chinese dragon with a long, thin body and high dorsal fins. The ribbon eel can easily be recognized by its expanded anterior nostrils. Juveniles and sub-adults are jet black with a yellow dorsal fin, while females are yellow with a black anal fin with white margins on the fins. The adult males are blue with a yellow dorsal fin.
