The Kidako moray, Gymnothorax kidako, is a type of Moray eel native to the Northwestern Pacific Ocean, specifically the ocean regions around Taiwan, parts of the Philippines, and southern Japan. The kidako moray is usually dark-yellow with a spreading, treelike brown pattern and has been known to reach a maximum size of between 80cm (2 ft 7 in) and 91.5cm (3 ft). It usually resides in crevices in shallow reefs. Sometimes the kidako moray is used for a food source in Japan and as a result it is included in some minor commercial fisheries in Japan.
