July 10, 2015 by Mike Veitch No Comment

Sometimes the best subjects in Lembeh are ones that we often just swim right on past.  When people come to Lembeh they are usually in search of some of the more hard to find critters on the reef: exotic species such as hairy frogfish, flambouyant cuttlefish, and blue ring octopus are typically the critters that ...

Lembeh Divesites: Aer Bajo

Aer Bajo is something like the Prototype of a Black Sand Muck Dive: No Corals, no Reef, no Topography …just a Black Sand slope with some Debris and Garbage.

Hitchhikers – what do they do?

As an avid hitchhiker earlier in my life, meeting loads of cool people and getting to a lot of places for free, the term hitchhiker describing an ecological interaction has immediate appeal. In contrast, the movie the hitchhiker with Rutger Hauer certainly has left no one seeing it untouched! So, what is a hitchhiker in ...

Communication between species

Communication in order to share information between conspecifics is very common in nature.
