snake eel, quite a few caught in the BOP each year, apparently they can wriggle into the mud and sand with just the head showing waiting for lunch.

Yea, i am pretty sure i actually seen one with just its head poking out of some sand while getting scallops once. I have always wondered what it was and that might just be the culprit.
