Brief Summary

The conger is also called a sea eel. Contrary to true eel, congers only live in sea water. They can reach up to three meters in length. Divers usually only see their head because they are often hiding between stones or in ship wrecks. It's not a good idea to pat a conger. They have very sharp teeth. There are stories of scuba divers that were swept for several meters by raging congers.
