Spotted Moray (2007-08-14 10-45-57a)
Spotted moray (Class Actinopterygii : Order Anguilliformes : Family Muraenidae : Gymnothorax moringa)The photo was taken at the Shedd Aquarium, Chicago, Illinois.
The Spotted Moray runs from about 2 feet in length up to about 6.5 feet. They can be found in the Western Atlantic Ocean from North Carolina and Bermuda in the north to Brazil in the south. They are also found in the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean and around the Mid – and Eastern Atlantic islands south to St Helena. They live anywhere between the surface and a depth of over 600 feet. I used a Panasonic DMC-FZ50 camera to take the photo. Then I used ACDSee Ultimate 9.3 to adjust the lighting, sharpen and boost the contrast, saturation and vibrance. Then I used Photoshop Elements 13.1 to remove a distracting reflection.
