Check out this awesome video from a diver in Utila, Honduras which features a Spotted Moray Eel (Gymnothorax moringa) hunting an invasive lionfish (Pterois volitans). This is the first video of its kind that I have seen (and certainly a first for the Bay Islands, where there are hundreds if not thousands of divers in the water daily) which features an untrained predator going after a lionfish, which have no natural predators in the Caribbean. This is great news if eels and other predators are starting to get a taste for this beautiful but damaging invasive species.
