Great pretender fish

The comet fish pretends to be a common moray eel when it is threatened. The comet fish looks similar to the moray eel. It has the same colour and a spot at the end of its tail looks like an eel's eye. When the comet fish is attacked, it swims head first into a hole and lets its "eel head" hang out the other end. In this way the comet fish scares away the predator.
