Harlequin Shrimp PoseThis week in Lembeh …. Harlequin Shrimp pose for the cameras. The beautiful Harlequin Shrimp (Hymenocera Picta), have been spotted on a number of sights around Lembeh lately. Often living in pairs, these usually shy critters have taken a few moments to pose for our guests. They are most recognizable for the unique blue or purple spots upon their white exterior, almost having a flowery pattern. They feed exclusively on starfish and are well equipped for doing so. Sadly they are highly prized in the aquarium trade, but here in the strait our guests have been seeing them O’natural.

To Shave or Not To Shave in LembehThis week in Lembeh…. The question is “ To Shave or Not To Shave in Lembeh”. Here in Lembeh there is no shortage of “Hairy” critters, bearded on the other hand is another story. The bearded goby is one that is sought out specifically for the 9-o-clock shadow it sports. Also known as a Hairy goby or Bearded papa, the Yellow coral goby (Paragoiodon Xanthosoma) is one cute yet timid critter.
