Randall RayRandall Ray was first sighted as an adolescent male. He was seen on the afternoon dive at Garden Eel Cove but did not return for the night dive. He was not shy and allowed Keller to approach very closely and get video of his abdominal spots. He is named after Dr. Jack Randall, a noted Ichthyologist at the Bishop Museum in Honolulu, underwater photographer, and author of "Shore Fishes of Hawaii".
