Speckled Worm Eel (Myrophis punctatus)


The Speckled Worm Eel is found along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts from North Carolina to Brazil. They are found in shallow, brackish water of tidal creeks and bays. As the common name suggests, Speckled Worm Eels have speckles on their snake-like body. They also have long dorsal and anal fins.
