Reginald Gooden Public Affairs Of cer .............Michael Sakaio Associate Editor .....................Jordan Vinson Media Services Intern.................Molly Premo T his moray eel was photographed by Kwaj visitor Christa Babcock-Wing eld near Emon Beach recently. There are many types of moray eels—upwards of 200 species—and they’re found all over the world, from the Mediterranean to Melanesia. All moray eels feature the same trademark characteristic: a slender dorsal n that runs along the length of their snake-like bodies, which can range in length from only about ve inches to nearly 10 feet, depending on the species. Moral eels feed exclusively on crustaceans, small sh and cephalopods, such as squid, octopuses and cuttle sh. According to research by University of California-Davis scientists, all species feature a truly awesome tool to help them eat: a second set of internal, sharp teeth situated farther back in their mouths that project forward on call, latching onto and dragging prey down their throats. These “Alien”like secondary jaws are an answer via evolution to moray eels’ inability to suck in prey with their mouths like most sh species do to feed. Most moray eels are shy creatures and spend most of their time hiding in nooks and crannies of coral reefs at shallow depths. The International Union for the Conservation of Nature identi es no species in particular that is currently threatened by human activity.Moray eel by Christa Babcock-Wing eld. FOURTH OF JULY HOLIDAY HOURSOpening paragraph of the Declaration of Independence, o cially adopted by the Continental Congress on this day, 239 years ago. Happy Independence Day. “When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.” INDEPENDENCE DAY 9 a.m.-4 p.m. 8 a.m.-6:30 p.m. Closed 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m.; 5:30-10 p.m. 5:30-midnight Closed Normal hours 8 a.m.-6:30 p.m. Closed 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m.; 5:30-10 p.m. 5:30-midnight ClosedRoi-NamurAAFES Express Small Boat Marina Third Island Store Outrigger Snack Bar Outrigger Bar Post Office
