COCKBURN TOWN, Turks and Caicos Islands, June 22 (UPI) -- A diver off the coast of Turks and Caicos captured video of a moray eel taking a nap among some rocks and appearing to have dreams.

The video, posted to YouTube by user URZALA prod., shows a moray eel sleeping with its head upside-down in a small rock cave.

The eel's mouth opens and shuts while it sleeps and its body rocks back and forth as if it were snoring or having a dream.

The diver wrote they did not understand the eel was asleep until it woke up toward the end of the video.
