This Week in Lembeh….Sheep Graze? A popular subject at the moment is the famous “Shawn the Sheep” more correctly known as a Sapsucking Slug (Costasiella). This little guy can be quite a tricky subject growing to an average size of about 7mm. Being that size obviously and smaller can make it tricky to fully see them in all their glory with just the naked eye. Either way it a great find and even better when a photo somewhat works out!
Time passes so fast here in Bunaken. I have been on this island for four weeks so far and I still love this place. I was quite busy with my Divemaster internship this week. I finished the DM manual and did the final exam. Theory is done The last two weeks I practiced the 24 Dive Skills several times with Dom in the pool. I could also see how the other two instructors are conducting the skills during the Open Water courses. So this week was my turn and my Dive Skills were scored by Ina.
This week in Bunaken… We have seen ghosts this week! Luckily though it has been the kind that makes you squeal with delight, rather than with fear. All of a sudden plenty of gorgeous ornate ghost pipe fish has been popping up around the reefs, hiding especially in feather stars and pretending to be one of the arms of the colourful starfish. Thank you Benita Vincent for the photo!
