This week’s video of Lembeh critter goodies features superb close-up footage of a broadclub cuttlefish mom delicately placing her eggs in a coral patch and a gorgeous pink paddleflap rhinopias just being its fabulous self. Also take a moment to appreciate the glimpses into the world of super-macro, difficult or impossible to see with the naked eye, such as a tiny commensal shrimp aerating its eggs and, right at the start of the video, the way a messmate pipefish’s camouflaged eyes move as it surveys its environment. If you love nudibranchs, there is something for you as well. Enjoy the Critters of the Lembeh Strait!
