Lembeh is Nudibranch Heaven for our guests! We have an abundance of beautiful Nudibranchs of all colours, shapes and sizes. This particular Nudibranch is from the family, Discodorididae, and the species Halgerda Batangas.
We see so many beautiful photos here at Two Fish and this one is no exception, taken by our guests, Kevin and Simone. There are more than 3000 species of Nudibranch worldwide and there are more being discovered all the time. They are also known as Sea Slugs, not the most attractive title when you look at how bright and colourful most of them are! Nudibranchs can be recognised by their external gills. They also have a pair of sensory rhinophores, which they can retract. They are the largest order of Sea Slugs.
Other beautiful Nudibranchs seen this week by our guests are the Yellowlined Roboastra, Avern’s Glossodoris and the Major Baeolidia. Keeping them company, our guests have also been spotting plenty of Pgymy Seahorse, Mimic Octopus, Wunderpus Octopus, Star Gazers and of course, Flamboyant Cuttlefish, along with so much more! The water is cooling down and the Cephalopods are coming out once again!
This week on Lembeh, we’ve had the company of Dive Master Candidate, Joe. He has been busy working on his skills and workshops and also helping us out around the resort. It’s been a lot of fun having him here and he seems to have enjoyed it also, spotting himself an Eagle Ray on a dive at Rojos! We were at 40m, so maybe he was a bit Narced – or maybe I was?! 🙂
We also had a couple of Enriched Air Courses take place. Anna and Paul are now proud Enriched Air Divers after successfully completing their course with instructor Mark.
We have had more return guests come to see us! Chris and Ernie from Australia, returned for their 10th visit, bringing with them, first timer, Bill. Also visiting us again were Jerome, from Switzerland, Annette, from the USA and Max from the USA. Our other guests this week hailed from China, Malaysia, Germany, France and Italy.
