A Taylor's Garden Eel (Heteroconger taylori) emerges from its burrow in the sandy ocean floor on the 'Bubbles' dive site in Anilao in the Batangas region of The Philippines.
This eel was thought to be localized to Borneo and Papua New Guinea, but it probably more widespread than previously thought with these images from The Philippines. They are typically found in silty sand plains and like most garden eels are very timid and cautious, retreating into their burrow at the slightest hint of danger.
