We got an incredible look inside Lembeh’s Painted Frogfish this week. Obviously caught in a wide mouthed yawn, this gorgeous photo was taken by Victor and Lynn and they have truly captured an amazing image.
The Painted Frogfish is a type of Angler Fish. They have an incredible ability to camouflage themselves and they use this as a defence mechanism as well as assisting them in capturing their prey. They are able to open their mouth to 12 times it’s actual size, swallowing their prey whole, negating the need for teeth.
Also seen this week in Lembeh were the Blue Ringed Octopus, it’s cousin, the Mototi Octopus, the Flamboyant Cuttlefish and of course an abundance of Nudibranchs, Shrimp, Crabs and so much more.
VIP guest, Keiko, returned for her 7th visit with us and it was lovely to have her back. She also took some beautiful shots, some of which we’ll share with you next week.
Along with Keiko, from Japan, we also had guests from China, the USA, the UK and Austria.
