Creatures of the night

Date June 11, 2015

Whoever said you shouldn’t go out at night obviously hasn’t been to Pulau Hantu!

Cuttlefish Couple

Date January 28, 2014

A pair of reef cuttlefish in the shallow and murky waters of Singapore’s Kusu Island. These animals were in a coloration and posture that is less commonly observed. I wonder what they might have been up to. They were also really really huge. The biggest I’ve seen around here.

A pair of cuttlefish were spotted along the reefs of Singapore’s Pulau Hantu. They were about the same size. Could they be siblings? Or were they individuals from different clutches that find safety by being in a pair?

Filefish Feeding

Date October 30, 2012

Filefish, wrasses, and damselfish, gather over the carcass of a huge prawn that was recently discarded by fishermen. The carcass, which has fallen into a tight crevice, does not make for easy pickings and the fish at this point, seem hesitant to enter the dark crevice despite the prospect of an easy meal. They do […]

Damselfish Nesting

Date October 24, 2012

Neopomacentrus filamentosus is an egg-laying species. The male fish in this video appears to be establishing a territory. It does so by cleaning a rocky ledge or coral surface. The male fish will court the female and encourage her to swim to the cleaned spot. During the actual spawning, the female will deposit her eggs […]
