juvenile batfish in bunakenThis week in Bunaken… The weather gods have been all over the place this week with stunning sunshine that became pouring rain and back to sun again in just a blink of the eye. This didn’t put off the divers though who were rewarded with great sightings; plenty of reef sharks, sting rays, the usual abundance of friendly turtles as well as large cuttlefish, schools of squid and tunas and giant trevallies hunting small fish. One exciting treat spotted on Tanjung Parigi was a gorgeous little juvenile batfish trying to look like a flatworm. (Photo: Ina Wallin)

pontohi pygmy seahorseThis week in Bunaken… From having a couple of weeks of big stuff, this week has been one of awesome macro. Candy crab, crinoid shrimp, ornate ghost pipefish, painted frogfish, harlequin shrimp, tiger mantis shrimp and several types of  pygmy seahorse (Pontohi, Severn, Bargibanti) just to name a few. The seahorse in the picture is a Pontohi pygmy seahorse which was classified as its own species just seven years ago in 2008! Growing to a maximum size of 17 mm from nose to the tip of the tail we are happy our guides have the eagle eyes required to find them. Thank you Phil Clarke for the great photo!
