My son found the animal flopping on the sand next to shallow water. He helped it into the water and it rested there for about a minute (photo). Then it wriggled backward into the sand, with just its head sticking out. This was during a low tide after a high tide and large waves.

Otra característica de la cueva era que tenía poco oxígeno y alta cantidad de dióxido de carbono.

I noticed that there was another fish shacking up with the kidako moray after when I reviewed the photos. Apparently they are known to cohabitate with morays and I found this behavior peculiar and cute.
