The Lembeh Strait is famous for all the weird critters, but there are as well colourful, thriving corals at many of the dive sites. This video shows the fantastically diverse coral at our nearby dive sites, where you can ‘have it all’ and see not only famous critters but also beautiful reefs. I couldn’t resist and had to include a few scenes of critters, shot with a fish-eye though :-). Best watched in 4K!
Make sure your sound is turned up for this epic underwater battle between the tiny skeleton shrimps and the ‘massive’ sea hare. Will Luke Skeleton Shrimp save his young from the sudden attack? Watch ‘The Skeleton Shrimp Strikes Back’ to find out!
March was another wildly critter-filled month here in Lembeh! Among many other things we saw a seahorse wearing a funny hat, an one-eyed shrimp, a reef octopus getting his eyes cleaned and a ghost-pipefish photobombing a coconut octopus. Enjoy!
Here are some highlights from February…check out the cardinal fish – I don’t know how he manages all these eggs…crazy!
This February is all about frogfishes…here’s a short video of some of the common species we usually see while diving the Lembeh Strait – Enjoy!
The year startet very good in Lembeh. With lots of frogfish (especially hairy ones), cephalopods (even flamboyant cuttlefish hatching) and many pretty nudibranchs, January was very productive, Here are a few highlights – enjoy!
The first video of 2016 is all about Syngnathidae. The Syngnathidae are a family of fish which includes the seahorses, the pipefishes, the pipehorses, and the seadragons. The name is derived from Greek, syn, meaning “fused” or “together”, and gnathus, meaning “jaws”.
“Stars of Lembeh” is the last video of the year 2015. See for yourself why Lembeh is so special – Which one is your favorite critter-star?
Are you fascinated by spooky, weird beings? In this video you will see them crawling, writhing, feeding hungrily and lying craftily in wait to ambush prey. Some, like the live headless nudibranch (we named it ‘Ichabod’) will leave you shaking your head in disbelief. Enjoy the show and when you go to bed, don’t forget to leave your night-light on and close the door to your closet, lest these spookiest critters invade your dreams. Enjoy!
