Friendly moray confuses diver's thumb for food

If you are squeamish you might want to stop the video when the music stops. Until then it is awesome. Unfortunately, if you feed finger-shaped food to a large eel who can fault the eel when ...

It also includes footage of reconstruction and transplanting a toe as a new thumb.

I don't want to start a rush of posting youtube videos of stupid people but this one is well done and shows a beautiful and graceful creature of the sea. After watching this eel allowing itself to be handled I know that I would have been tempted. I know I'll be much more careful now.

Holy cow amazing video. You can see how friendly it is, but sometimes people push their luck and forget their natural animal instinct's.
