On your next dive holiday to Indonesia you will definitely bump into at least two types of sea turtles, the Green Turtle and the Hawksbill Turtle. We get both types of these sea turtles at all of our dive locations in Indonesia. To ensure that you get the most out of your encounter with these…
Last week we had 10 Ambon scorpionfish on one dive in Lembeh, but what are they? The Ambon scorpionfish is only 6-12cm long, it is shaggy, and the most distinguishing feature is the large growths above eyes, making them look a bit like Fu-Manchu!
If you thought that the frogfish in Lembeh were weird, then this ranks in the same league. The red-lipped batfish or Galapagos batfish is found around the Galapagos Islands at depths of 30m or more. It is mainly known for its bright red lips, and they look just right for a kiss!
This week we had a Frogfish-tastic week in Lembeh with lots of different species: Hairy, Giant, Painted, Warty / Clown, all of varying colours and sizes. PLUS we found three Sargassum frogfish when cleaning our beach in front of the resort! But what are these weird fish?
Last week we reported that we found two new Rhinopias fish in Lembeh, but what are they? Rhinopias are actually a scorpionfish, and they are one of the top 10 critters that photographers come to Lembeh for and so are pretty special.
