Our friends at Lembeh Resort are hosting their first annual Tentacle Festival, which is sure to be a fun and informative event. Presenters include @Bret Grasse MBA, and their resident marine biologist Dimpy Jacobs. This will be one to follow! Let us know if you plan to attend.

Event Details: Tentacle Festival July 2017 - Lembeh Resort Dive Resort & Spa in...

Videos from Lembeh Resort (by in-house photographer Sacha Janson):

All videos were filmed on-site in Lembeh with no manipulation of the animals other than offering shells to the coconut octopuses.

Amphioctopus marginatus (coconut octo): edit: video no longer exists!

Two Amphioctopus marginatus squabbling over possession of shells: edit: video no longer exists!

Broadclub cuttlefish: edit: video no longer exists!

Pygmy squid (Idiosepius sp.?) capturing and eating a crustacean (awesome footage of this tiny squid - note the ‘juices’ of the crab visible flowing into the squid which was less than 1cm long, at around 1:00 into the film!): edit: video no longer exists!

Blue-ring octopus with eggs (possibly not H. lunalata; undescribed species?): edit: video no longer exists!

Flamboyant Cuttlefish: edit: video no longer exists!
