picking fights with boxer crabsThis week in Bunaken… Dive guide Oke learned that attitude sometimes comes in small packages and that you should not pick fights with boxer crabs. During a dive Oke found a very pretty boxer crab that he pointed out to his divers. Normally boxer crabs are quite elusive and shy, but not this guy! He raised his little pom-poms (which actually are anemones held in their claws) and rushed towards Oke’s finger! Anyone ever been stung by an anemone know to stay clear of them and Oke quickly withdrew his finger. His divers got a good laugh, cause how can anyone be scared of a crab with pom-poms, right!? Thank you Phil Clarke for the great photo!

Diving in Bunaken - ghost pipe fish!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!
