Yawning Hairy Frogfish JPGWe are currently enjoying a couple of quiet days before the summer rush and we are making the most of it, getting in as many fun dives as possible.  The last few days have really rewarded us with lots of Frogfish and Flamboyant Cuttlefish action and lots, lots more!

We have found a site where there are 3 Hairy Frogfish (Antennarius striatus) now residing and the one that has been living at Jahir 2 for months is still loving his home! Gizmo managed to get a great shot of one of the newly found Hairy’s yawning at us!! Giant Frogfish Original

We (the guests as well) have also enjoyed an up close encounter with one of the largest Giant Frogfish (Antennarius commerson) I have ever seen and most impressively we have discovered another Randall’s Frogfish, which is one of the rarest inhabitants of the Lembeh Straits!

Flamboyant Cuttlefish (Metasepia pfefferi) have also been in abundant supply and of many different sizes -  ranging from around 8cm down to the a tiny one that was only about 1cm Flamboyant eggslong. We also got this picture of Flamboyant Cuttlefish eggs  on the underside of a coconut shell, the female injects them through a hole in the top to protect them from predatory fish! Juvenile Flamboyant’s start to show the normal coloration from birth, so letting any predators know that they are a pretty toxic snack!

Also in the last couple of days other sightings numerous Thorny Seahorses, Zebra crabs, Long Armed Octopus, Wunderpus, Ornate / Robust / Halimeda / Rough Snout Ghost pipefish, Pygmy Seahorses and Pipehorse,  Ambon Scorpionfish…I am getting exhausted from just writing the list!!
