These beautiful intelligent fish are aften misunderstood simply because they look a bit grumpy. In reality, they are very loving creatures indeed. A male and female will form a possibly life long bond in their youth at around 4 years old. A few years later they will mate and look after their first batch of babies. The male pokes the female until she releases her eggs, he then wraps himself all around her and the future babies to fertalize them. So cute. They then take the 10,000 egglets and make them into a nice tidy ball so that they can easily wrap themselves around them for ptrotection as well as rotate them for aeration. If all goes as planned after 3 months the eggs will hatch into beautiful little baby wolf eels. Although their parents spend months looking over them, they don't stick around to say thanks, for the first few years of life they enjoy traveling and making new friends until they are ready to settle down and start their own family.
If you want to have a peak at a pair of wolf eels and their egg bundle for yourself you can head down to the deep wall at Madrona! They're there in a crack, but don't bother them. Don't shine obnoxiously bright lights in their faces or try to coax them out of the den (not that they will come...) they have a very important job to do right now and we don't want to disturb them.
