A sea star for lunch, maybe?

February 19, 2015 by Bent Christensen No Comment

In contrast to plant material, meat and other animal products are very rare in nature. The ratio of meat to plants would be in the permilles, or even lower. Mainly that will be because plant matter mostly is bad food, while animal matter has all the nutrients in all the correct combinations for consumers. One ...

Our guest saw lots of cool things there including frogfish, flamboyant cuttlefish, ribbon eels and a wonderpus (that disappeared in its hole unfortunately). My personal highlight of ...

He had never seen this particular Nudi before, so he stayed there for a while. Eventually he recognized a little white “Blob” at the gills ...

At around 15 meters depth i found this little Pygmy Squid hiding in ...

Cool Video shot at NAD Lembeh Housereef

He had Century Diopters mounted on his Sealux housing for extra magnification (2 stacked on the afternoon and one on the nightdive). Watch this short clip with some of the critters he found – just a ...
