This week in Lembeh…. Dragons have been seen! One thing high on many peoples list to see is the Lembeh sea dragon (Kyonemichthys Rumengani). This, fortunately hasn’t been hard to find lately. Discovered only in 2006, these little guys can grow to a staggering 4cm, and despite the name can be found throughout Indonesia and some parts of Malaysia.
This week in Bunaken… Today is the last day of the PADI IDC (Instructor Development Course) and we are having two quite nervous and stressed out candidates polishing their skills to perfection in the pool this afternoon. Tomorrow the examinor from PADI arrives and the dreaded IE (Instructor Examination) kicks off with written exams.
This week in Lembeh…. we love our frogfish! One thing we are not lacking here in Lembeh is frogfish. From the family Antennariidae, these fun angler fish come in all sizes and color. As an ambush predator they are often found waiting and waving its lure to attract an unsuspecting meal. This is one reason it is one of the favorite creatures for photographers. We have been seeing everything from Giant frogfish to the tiny Randalls frogfish this week.
