This Octopus is either a mimic or wonder-pus. Either way, it is a rare a cephalopod. I will be asking the team at the Lembeh Resort to refresh mum memory as they are experts at identifying unusual marine life.
I will be returning to the Lembeh Strait after going on a 11 day cruise on the Damai. This live-abaord is known for the highest standard in service and style, and I have heard nothing but great comments. I will visit Raja Ampat, Manakwari, and Chandrawasih Bay. These are remote areas in Indonesia that have some of the most bio-diversity in the world, as well as some good shipwrecks, and a resident group of whale sharks.
I am also looking forward to visiting Murex Dive Resort in Manado, operated by the Batuna Family. I had the great pleasure of doing some free lance work there in 1994, and consider them as part of my extended family.
