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!
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!
This week at “The Magnet” in Belongas, South Lombok we have been blessed with a huge school of Bigeye Trevally (also known as the big eye jack, great trevally, six-banded trevally and dusty jack). The school was so big that they blocked out the rays of sun shimmering through the water and the divers Simon and Josi had no choice but to hover and stare at the glistering silver bodies as the circled around them. “An outstanding dive site and experience” is what Simon said to his old friend our dive master Kiko.
