Description

The last dive on Kata Beach turned up something pretty interesting, or at least it became far more interesting later on while viewing the day’s snaps.

I 100% thought I was taking photos of a juvenile Filefish, but when I got home and tried to ID the type of Filefish, I was surprised to see that this fish had two very prominent Pectoral fins (fins at the bottom). Filefish don’t really have these, neither do Triggerfish, so that left us kinda wondering what the heck this guy is.

Tripodfish – Long Spined – Juvenile

Eventually, we had to resort to fish base, and we found this Long Spined Tripod Fish, so we highly suspect this photo is of the juvenile with more prominent striping in the early stages of development.

So there you go, another totally weird and wonderful critter out there hanging around on Kata Beach for divers to find!

Great sleepy little place to visit, oddly it's also [...]

Common Seahorse – Kata Beach

Keeping with this week theme of Seahorse photos here is a very dirty little Common Seahorse (Hippocampus Kuda), why is he dirty, well just look at him, obviously has not had a bath or shave in a while. Usually you don't get Seahorses covered in hair or algae like this one, I would say this is a l [...]
