Diving in South Lombok - orang-utan crabThis week in Lombok …last week we had a lot of new sights at our fantastic dive site in South Lombok “the Sand”. We saw a achaeus japonicus, sometimes known as the orang-utan crab. With a carapace of only about 2 centimetres or 0.8 inches in diameter, which are thickly covered with fine hairs, red or reddish brown in colour. It is frequently, but not always, found in association with the bubble coral and often laden with small bits of debris for further camouflage.

Another Whale Shark In LembonganThis week in Lembongan… We know we are becoming repetitive! But seeing a whale shark again just a week after spotting one, is just a big deal for us. This time some of the divers were lucky enough to see it during their dive on the north coast of Nusa Penida. And it was a much bigger specimen than the one that has been spotted last week.

Divers-got-wrecked.jpg

This week in Bunaken… Divers got wrecked this week when we ran a PADI Wreck Diving Specialty Course on the shipwreck that is near the mainland, not far from Manado. The shipwreck is not visited very often as it is exposed to the elements with, at time, low visibility and strong currents. None of that this time though and the divers could enjoy clear, calm waters.

Puff?….Puff?….Nah Pass…This week in Lembeh…. Puff?….Puff?….Nah Pass… One thing we do not lack here in the Lembeh strait diving is puffer fish. Like this juvenile star puffer fish they can come in an assortment of colors, patterns, and sizes. Ranging from <5cm to >100cm these slow and awkward fish have an odd method of defense. Though preferring to run away, puffer fish can inflate their bodies in attempt to become too large for a predator to eat. They do this by taking in  large amounts of water, or air if on the surface, which can increase their size by 2-3 times! This does put quite a lot of stress on the puffers body and in the case of inflating with air, can be very dangerous for the puffer. As with any marine creature it is very discouraged to harass them to prompt this behavior.  These cute and passive fish should be enjoyed by viewing from a distance, allowing them to enjoy a hassle free day.
