This week in Mainland Bali: We were super stoked to find a Stargazer in Padang Bai and that too during the day time.(Photo for reference only)The Stargazer is a fish that will bury itself in the sand to ambush its prey, when an unsuspecting fish swims over head it leaps out and drags it into the sand.
If you thought that the frogfish in Lembeh were weird, then this ranks in the same league. The red-lipped batfish or Galapagos batfish is found around the Galapagos Islands at depths of 30m or more. It is mainly known for its bright red lips, and they look just right for a kiss!
This week we had a Frogfish-tastic week in Lembeh with lots of different species: Hairy, Giant, Painted, Warty / Clown, all of varying colours and sizes. PLUS we found three Sargassum frogfish when cleaning our beach in front of the resort!
But what are these weird fish?
