What are moray eels and where are they found?

Common eels have embedded scales, but these are not readily noticeable. Morays occur in tropical and subtropical seas of the world. In the United States. they are usually found in quantity only in Florida waters, although they have been seen as far north as North Carolina and even New Jersey.
