Description

Apart from being rare, hard to find & beautiful, the Zebra Moray is also annoyingly bashful, preferring to spend it time hiding from anything even remotely resembling a camera or scuba diver. Here in Phuket, where I found this one, we see them very very rarely, there is no dive site we can conclusively say, yes we will see a Zebra Moray, possibly Shark Point being your best bet to find them if they were high on your list, but by no means a guarantee.

So when found, your next mini ordeal begins, attempting to get a photo of them, they are not free swimming inclined and will almost certainly be buried deep into a hiding place. You can wait all you want for them to move for a better shot, but experience has shown me they are quite happy where they are, so actually in this case you are better off trying to get your light onto them right away and snap a shot.

This one as you can see was deep inside a mushroom coral structure, I had to position my lights quite carefully, in fact the light comes from the left side in this show, falling off on the right to hide anymore of the background being visible. Hopefully One day i will get a chance at seeing these magnificent & beautiful morays out hunting or at least with their head out of the rock :)

Juvenile Decorator Crab

If you had not read the title coming here I would bet 5$ that you have no idea what the hell this thing is, am I right? To be fair, I'm taking an educated guess as I've never seen the decorator crab without it immensely dense coral growth protecting it, but these spider looking crabs simply don't fi [...]

Dragon Seamoth – What Was Nature Thinking?

So what on earth is a Dragon Sea Moth? To be honest, I'm not really sure, though I think that if we combine several other animals from both land and sea and mash them all together you would end up with a Sea Moth. Is it a fish? Nope, it is actually a member of the Syngnathiformes, meaning it is c [...]

Stone Fish Staghorn Sentinel

Referring to Stone Fish as Sentinel's is probably a bad description for them, Sentinel's & Gargoyle's are actually silent protectors of the weak and helpless, where as Stone Fish typically prey on the defenseless for a snack. So are they good guys, definitely not, they lie in wait till something is [...]
