It has been a few weeks since letting you all know what’s been happening here at Two Fish Divers Lembeh.
We have continued to enjoy teaching – Lucy completed her Open Water and Advanced Course and Greg, Andrea and Meagan all completing their Advanced Open Water Course with us as well. We enjoyed great night dives and completed the Wreck Adventure Dive on the Kapal Indah wreck which home to some cool pink and purple Pygmy Seahorse, Batfish and a range of lovely Nudibranchs!
We have also been seeing a few critters that haven’t made an appearance for a while and they all seem to be hairy..! One of the coolest things we have seen was the Hairy Octopus which is extremely rare and had Gizmo our resort manager screaming with joy when he surfaced! This little critter is solitary and is usually found on a rubble bottom as he was on the photo here. The colour can range from white to cream to brown to red, either with a pattern of spots or not. From looking at it is easy to see why people mistake them for an Orangutan Crab or sea weed!
Also seen this week as well Hairy Ghost Pipefish and Hairy Frogfish. Non-Hairy critters have included Blue Ringed Octopus, Giant Frogfish, Painted and Warty Frogfish, Flamboyant Cuttlefish, Stargrazers and more!
It is going to be a busy time for the rest of October but keep an eye for updates on the critters that we will be seeing!
