Spotted Snake Eel
Spotted Snake Eel
Ophichtus ophis
Saba is home to many varieties of eels such as this one from the snake eel family (Ophichtidae). As seen here, the spotted variety inhabits burrows in the sand with only its head protruding. At the same time they are capable of moving about underneath the sand, while at night you may see them moving about freely and fully exposed.  All the more reason to schedule a night dive while on Saba.
