Opening on April 2, the Moray Eel will be the new highlight of the Museum's World of Darkness gallery. This exhibit will showcase the eel's beautiful, strange, and unique appearances as well as its reclusive behavior.

The exhibit will have a total volume of approximately 1000 gallons, with extensive custom rock work complete with holes, cracks and hiding place in which the eel can showcase its natural behaviors. Low LED lighting will accentuate the feel of light penetrating the depths while creating an eerie feel. The exhibit opening is included in museum admission.
