Sunday was last day with us for Fabian, Gessa, Phillip and Nickie. They spent three weeks in both resorts, Lembeh and Bunaken. As they were taking beautiful pictures and we all wanted to watch them we set up our big screen in the cafe and after dinner we all enjoy the critter that we can find in north Sulawesi.

Yesterday a lucky group coming from Belgium (Didier, Jan, Eric R., Eric F., Cool, and Hugo) saw a blue ring octopus. It is not common to see it in Bunaken, last time was two years ago!!
The BLUE RING OCTOPUS can be recognized by their characteristic blue and black rings and yellowish skin. When the octopus is agitated, the brown patches darken dramatically, and iridescent blue rings or clumps of rings appear and pulsate within the maculae. They hunt small crabs, hermit crabs, and shrimp, and may bite attackers. Blue Ringed Octopus are one of the most fascinating of all octopus. They are quite small, only a few inches across but have one of the most toxic venoms in the world. When threatened they flash neon blue rings.
The Belgium group stayed with us 4 days and saw a little bit of everything, ghost pipe fish, sharks, napoleon, huge huge turtle, orangutan crab…..BLUE RING OCTOPUS… They are heading to Lembeh today.
Thank you to Cool Gunther for the pictures!!
