Description

When I took this photo I immediately labelled it ‘why can’t we all just get along’ and posted it to Facebook. It was actually one of my most popular photos, I think when you capture something unique under the water like these two viscous predators sharing a small space and getting along, you have to wonder why we as humans can’t do the same thing, especially considering we are theoretically much better at reason and logic than these two Moray Eels.

Besides the odd discussions this photo sparked about life in general, it was a very rare find indeed. Morays for the most part are solitary, especially the larger ones like these two. You will see quite often White Eyed Morays bunched together, I’ve been lucky enough to one time see eight very small White Eyes all in the one crack poking their heads in and out, I’d also seen the White Eyes from time to time bunch up with a larger Peppered Moray or Fimbriated, but I’d never seen two larger Moray like these guys together.

I do like morays as subjects for photos, I especially love getting the shot with their mouths open, it always looks to me like they are laughing at really bad jokes, something like ‘Why did Bob fall off his bike?’, ‘Well, someone threw a fridge at him’. Now look at the picture and tell me you don’t see it.

It may have been horrible diving this low season in Phuket, but that doesn't mean the fish are not still there, it just means it is about three times more difficult to find them and get a decent photo! Juvenile Yellow Box Fish are fairly common even on some of the less coral heavy sites, so they mak [...]

The Pygmy Pipe Horses Of Kata Beach

Up until last month, I had seen maybe 3 Pygmy Pipe Horses in over 8 years of scuba diving, in fact, Pygmy Pipe Horses were fairly mythical and rare for the waters of Thailand. I remember the only place we ever found them with any certainty was Richelieu Rock Similan Islands and the Surin Islands. [...]
