This week in Lembeh….. Nudies Nudies Nudies. Not quite the x-rated action you are thinking about…well actually it is…. We have been seeing mating action in the strait. From Nudibranchs mating to laying eggs, the whole life cycle can be seen right here. With an abundant number of different species in nudibranchs, to try an see them all, seems like an impossible task. They range from the tiny sap sucking slugs to the much larger pleurobranchaea and everything in between. Different sizes, shapes, and colors make them an exciting part of Lembehs critter hunt.
Guy has come back almost everyday saying he has seen new Nudies he has never seen before. Eva and Joseba have been able to see a wonderpus and ornate ghost pipefish on their first dive with us. David and his Thai crew loved the blue ringed octopus, mantis shrimps, and frogfish, all which recently have been seen.
Earth day was celebrated this week as well with a full beach and reef clean. Over 40Kg was taken off our reefs in 1 short afternoon. We have had plenty of fun seeing: Hairy Frogfish, Alge Octopus, Hairy Shrimp, Skeleton Shrimp, Warty Frog Fish, Hairy Ghost Pipefish, Coconut Octopus, and of course lots more.
