Watching behavior is a favorite pastime of many Lembeh diversWatching behavior is a favorite pastime of many Lembeh divers. Animals feed on other animals, fish spawn with one another, and of course there is plenty of egg laying going on. This week in Lembeh, Two Fish Divers guests were shocked to see a Shaggy Scorpionfish gobble down a Wonderpus! For a moment it looked like the Wonderpus had a fighting chance as its tentacles braced against the face of the Scorpionfish, but in the end the Scorpionfish won the fight. And this isn’t the first time a Wonderpus has seen the inside of a fish’s mouth. A few months back Two Fish divers saw a Wonderpus eaten by a flounder. However, the dive-guide’s gentle tap on the flounders nose made it spit the dazed Wonderpus back onto the sand! For now it remains 1:1 for Wonderpus against predatory fish…

The North Gilis this week we have been going wild with try dives for the boat staff!! It has been extremely fun, a little challenging at times but well worth it. A real team building exercise and also it is good for all the staff working within the dive centre to know for themselves exactly why we do this. After a few pool sessions we are then out and about exploring the sites.

Beautiful Reef Diving in LembehWho knew there was beautiful reef diving in Lembeh? Often overlooked because of all the world-class muck diving sites, there are also some amazing reef dives in Lembeh. Angel’s Window is a regularly requested site amongst return guests because of all the incredible animals encountered there. Bargibanti Pygmy Seahorses are easily located at a few sites, but the Denise Pygmy Seahorse is a rare sight in Lembeh Strait these days. The Denise is differentiated from the Bargibanti by its smoother look: while the Bagibanti has many tubercles to match its host Gorgonean fan, the Denise has fewer tubercles, giving it a smoother appearance. And while the Bargibanti Pygmy Seahorse is usually found living on pinkish colored fans, the Denise is assumed to more often reside on orange fans (though not always).

IMG_0829The North Gili’s this week we have had 6 Scuba Diver courses and plenty of Discover Scuba divers. Up here on Gili Air we get all sorts of travellers turning up from families on a long holiday to daily travellers going about Southeast Asia to couples and so on. Since opening here we have noticed a lot of beginner divers. It really is a great place to start as the currents are avoidable; we have crystal clear warm water and Turtles everywhere. The Scuba diver course is really a great introduction to diving and it allows you to continue and practice with professionals. It only takes 2 days which seems to be ideal for the people visiting the Gili islands.

Baby Flamboyant Cuttlefish hatching in LembehA few of our guests were lucky enough to witness baby Flamboyant Cuttlefish hatching in Lembeh this week! Their eggs were first discovered a week prior and a few dedicated guests and guides returned time and again before finally witnessing the big event! As if it’s not incredible enough to watch the juveniles squirm about inside their eggs, to see them shift color just moments before pushing through the egg must be truly incredible! Once out of the egg, the teeny-tiny Flamboyant Cuttlefish remained brightly colored as it sought out its first meal on the reef…
