Randall the Ribbon Eel







Meet Randall the TRACC resident ribbon eel, usually found not far from our jetty. 









His blue and yellow colouring shows that he is a male, but this won't be for long. Ribbon eels are thought to be protandric hermaphroditic, meaning that they grow as males but once reaching a certain age switch to females. When this happens, Randall will become entirely yellow.
