 This I thought looked quite abstract. its sponges on top of a big orange sponge, and a few tunicates(sea squirts)

 This turtle was eating what i thought was a plastic bag. fearless fidget to the rescue. I was going to wrestle it off it until I realised it was a pelagic colonial seasquirt that looked like a plastic bag. No wonder the turtles think vice versa and dead ones are found with their stomachs full of plastic bags.

HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: Yesterday at 11:47

Still having a good time. yesterday we got a blue ringed octopus. deadly bite, but ots only 2 inch across. I will put a couple of photos on photo thread.

Sounds as if its been windy. I hope the housesitter put extra bricks around the polytunnel as instructed. His only email was to request the password for the virgin tv box.

I think I'd pay anything for a decent fillet steak at the mo. All the emergency chocolate has gone, I have fantasies about good english food. We will be home at the weekend, only five more dives left .

Have a good day everyone.

HELLO FORKERS!

Its not rained here since August. The jungle was hot and humid enough without mud underfoot. We did see the troop of black macaques, and some tarsiers, tiny with huge eyes. Back to diving today, and we found a rare ambon frogfish. Also a sea snake was swimming around ,but I gave it a wide berth. The roads here are dreadful, and very congested and very slow, so we cancelled a trip to the straits of lembeh. I couldnt face another five hours in a bus. Time for bed for me now. Have a good day, everyone.

 

Get well soon Nigel!

Ive got an ear infection too. Result of not drying ears properly after each dive. Antibiotics and ear drops seem to be working.

Well I am fairly well  acquainted with german anatomy now. Front view, side viewand backside view.

Because video is stuffed, I feel strange diving with nothing in my hands so I have been equipped with a stainless steel stick to poke around with. It could come in useful. Cold steel, they dont like it up em, Mr Mannering.

I am clearing the reef as well as I can, removing plastic carriers and fishing line that could catch turtles. I come back from most dives with a pocketfull. No one else seems very bothered.

Today is day off from diving, we are going to a nature reserve to see macaque monkeys.

white mouse

Is this an escaped pet (or a boas dinner) or a natural occurring albino?
