I am fortunate enough to be diving Lembah this week, and man, its sick with cephs! One one dive we saw a flamboyant and a wunderpus! Crazy. We've also seen broad club cuttles, pigmy cuttles, pigmy squid, bobtail squid, walking octos, common octos, day octos, two mimics and two flamboyants. Plenty of other stuff, but we know only cephs count. One or two days left to go with eyes peeled for hairy and wunderpus. :smile:

The resort even has internet (clearly!) but its slow, so I am going to try to post a pic of two of my loves. I have more pics, but the video will be better. Hope all of TONMO is doing well!

That is SO not fair! You're diving with cephs while I'm stuck with inservice meetings all week! :mrgreen: Glad it's going so well for YOU though Thales! Who's caring for the small-striped-ones while you're away?

We are staying at KBR. Nice!

The small striped babies are all at Roy's lab until I return, as is the female who is brooding again. The males are still at my place, being taken care of by an very enthusiastic house sitting friend.

Ok - one more pic before bed!

very cool. Between this and the "Diving with GPOs" footage on the MonsterQuest show, I'm really wanting to get back to SCUBA...

Good photos!
Try to look out for O type holes in the ground with eyes protruding from the sand, a lot of Lysiosquilla mantis shrimp ("zebra mantis") are found here, especially on the black sand of Lembah straight.
