Interested in seeing a variety of Octopus in Lembeh? Interested in seeing a variety of Octopus in Lembeh? The best way to catch the most variety is to vary your dive schedule. The morning dives are the best time to see Reef, Mimic and Coconut Octopus. Mimic Octopus sightings are well sought after due to the animal’s unique ability to imitate venomous animals when threatened. The Mimic Octopus plays an amazing game of charades and can convincingly mimic venomous Lionfish, Banded Sea Snakes and Banded Soles in its attempt to scare off potential predators. And though it is our most commonly encountered Octopus, the Coconut Octopus is not to be dismissed! The right individual can be endless entertainment as it plays peek-a-boo and shows off it’s attachment issues as it runs across the reef holding a house of shells or coconut husk!

Lembeh’s Police Pier is known for its plethora of PipefishLembeh’s Divesite Police Pier is known for its plethora of Pipefish (alongside it’s spawning Mandarinfish and fantastic Frogfish population). This week one of the Banded Pipefish found itself in a slightly awkward situation when it got a bit to close to a hungry Ribbon Eel. Luckily, the Ribbon Eel immediately realized that the physics of his meal was simply too complicated and let the Pipefish go without so much as a scratch. If you look closely at the underside of the fish you can see that the Pipefish is carrying eggs. As it turns out, a whole generation of Banded Pipefish was spared!

Bobbit Worm sightings on Lembeh night divesBobbit Worm sightings in Lembeh night dives are not uncommon, but this week’s Bobbit Worm sighting was ridiculously cool! Our guests came across two different Bobbit Worms that were both spewing white gunk into the water column. Thinking it was a defense mechanism, the divers were annoyed that it “screwed up their photo opportunity”. Little did they know, these Bobbit Worms were spawning, which is an extremely rare sight in Lembeh! Bobbit Worms are broadcast spawners, which means that Bobbit Worms release their sperm and eggs into the water column all at the same time, resulting in successful fertilization within the water column (rather than within the animal).

Frogfish Frenzy in Lembeh It has been a Frogfish Frenzy in Lembeh this week! From big to small, from Hairy to Warty, from orange to black, and mated to single, I think we’ve seen a bit of it all! It hasn’t been only the variety of Frogfish that has impressed our Two Fish divers, but also the behaviors. Many of the Frogfish have been very active, awkwardly moving about the reef, chasing one another, chasing our divers (true story!), yawning and luring. Once again, Lembeh proves to be a Frogfish paradise!
