Animal Facts:

Wolf Eels aren’t actually true eels because they have paired gill slits and pectoral fins.

Wolf Eels can reach up to 8 feet in length and can weigh up to 40 pounds.

A Wolf Eel’s diet consists of hard shell creatures, such as oysters, clams, snails, and sea urchins.

Wolf Eels like approximately 25 years.

Wolf Eels mate for life.  When a pair has laid eggs, one eel will wrap itself around the eggs while the other leaves to hunt.  They switch when the other returns.
