How do I handle myself around moral eels?

Information on Moray Eels

Cozumel has a great population of moray eels and the local divemasters sometimes feed them fish scraps. While you should not fear these wonderful animals, don't make a habit of feeding the moray eels or waiving your fingers in their face either. Moray eels are notoriously near-sighted and may innocently mistake your hand for a food offering, an experience guaranteed to disappoint both of you.
