Abigail is easily identified by her tail which is approximately one foot in length. At 12’ across, she is large and robust, yet rather shy. At Ho’ona Bay/ Garden Eels on the night of April 28, and May 12, 2000, she was feeding under the lights beside the dive boat yet she would not approach the divers who were 100 feet away.
