Lembeh is famous for some world class muck diving, also called the critter capital! I admit it, it’s not necessarily something you get into after your first open water dive. However, when it comes to easy diving conditions, Lembeh is a great place. And therefore, also perfectly suitable for diving with kids.
Certainly one of the weirdest critters and alien-looking creatures, is the Idiomysis or Opossum Shrimp. They only reach a few millimeters in length but yet I’m sure that every diver checking the sand or reef has seen them before. Idiomysis usually come in groups of 5 up to maybe 20 individuals and look a little like “flies” but underwater.
It’s quite common to see nudibranchs feeding on each other. As it turns out, sea slugs are their own worst enemy! This short video of a Gymnodoris swallowing a Ceratosoma nudibranch may change your perception of these colorful, “cute”, little creatures!
This month still had lots of cephalopods ready for us. Mainly Coconut, Mimic and Mototi Octopus as well as Flamboyant Cuttlefish got spotted on the dives. I’ve been shooting more video than stills this month. Therefore, here comes a short movie with our June highlights.
