We are always interested in viewing our guests photos and videos that they take whilst they are here with us at Two Fish Divers Lembeh. We also really appreciate them being sent through to us so that we can share them with everyone else!
Johnny Leffelaer from Belgium sent us through some of his fantastic photos… Here is a little information on each of the fish!
Flamboyant Cuttlefish (Metasepia pfefferi) tend to live in sandy & rubble shallows and are most active during the day. Its appeal to divers is seeing the beautiful colour changes. Its normal colour is dark purple/brown but it can quickly change to a pattern of black, white, with yellow patches around the mantle, arms, and eyes. The flesh of this cuttlefish is poisonous, containing a unique toxin.
The Pegasus Sea Moth (Eurypegasus Draconis) is one of my favourite things to see here in Lembeh – they look so adorable ambling along the rubble bottoms in their pair! They are a relative of the seahorse family & they tend to feed on small crustaceans hiding in the sand.
Johnny captured a fantastic image of the Leafy Filefish ( Chaetodermis penicilligera). You tend to find these guys alone on sheltered reef or weedy covered bottoms. It gets its name from the green and yellow patches on its body.
Thank you again to Johnny for the photos and once again we like to receive photos, so please send us your best images to firstname.lastname@example.org .
