Special Traits

  • Water Breathing. The giant moray eel can breathe only underwater.


  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (2d6+4) piercing damage, and the target is grappled (escape DC 16). Until this grapple ends, the creature is restrained, and the giant moray eel can’t grapple another target.


This sixteen-foot-long eel slithers through the water with uncanny grace, mouth open to display large teeth and a second set of jaws. Giant moray eels are warm-water animals that lie in wait to ambush prey. Once they get hold of prey, or an intruder, they are tenacious biters, gnawing and tearing flesh.
