Now that's a face only a mother could love! Wolf-eels may be vicious-looking, but their temperament is quite the opposite. Their thick jaws and long, snaggly front teeth make them appear ferocious, but these slow-moving animals actually prefer to be left alone.
When they're not concealed in rock crevices, wolf-eels typically snake along the seafloor since they don't have swim bladders to help them float. At the Aquarium, they leave their hiding spots during feeding time, making their grand entrances as they venture upwards to be hand-fed by our staff and volunteer divers!
