11 litre tanks too small for you? Always the first in your group to show the dreaded 'low on air' sign?
.
Casa Escondida has you covered! With this tank, YOU will be the one laughing at your friends as they end their dives early! HAH! Puny humans!
.
So I just confirmed my next trip to Anilao from 7 to 12 December with Casa Escondida! Can't wait for more muck madness!
.
How many of you have been to Anilao? Show me those hands! πŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ»

This Porcelain crab furiously flickers it's feathery feelers to filter for food (say that 10 times quickly; you know you want to!).
.
While they may look like a crab (they even have the word 'crab' in their name ffs), these crustaceans are in fact not true crabs, and are an example of an animal that evolved to look like a true crab through a process called carcinisation.
.
What, then, is a true crab? A true crab has four pairs of walking legs (porcelain crabs have three), and antennae originating from between their eyes (porcelain crab antennae originate from outside their eyes).
.
Crabtivating, isn't it?! Ok, I'm done πŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ»

Collaboration time!
.
Who here loves seahorses? I know I do! And I know Jill @glass_action_mosaics does as well!
.
Very excited to share that Jill will be creating a glass artwork based on this picture of a seahorse I took! Be sure to head on over and check out her amazing work!
.
I'm sure there are many other very talented artists out there.. Would you like to collaborate? Please reach out to me if you do! πŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ»

Here's a pregnant male pygmy seahorse (Hippocampus bargibanti). Yes, you read that right.. The male seahorses carry the babies!
.
Their excellent camouflage along with very small size (most measure less than 2cm long from head to tail) helped these cute seahorses hide from prying human eyes until their home, a gorgonian coral, was being examined in a laboratory.
.
Have you seen one before? πŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ»

.
Here's another shot of the very cute Costasiella kuroshimae!
.
Affectionately called the 'sheep nudi' because they look like sheep, you'll have to look very, very closely to see them as they're only about 3mm long from head to tail!
.
What makes these guys even cooler is that they store the chloroplasts ingested from algae, using them to convert sunlight into energy. Yes, you read that right; these sea slugs are solar-powered.
.
Now how cool is that? πŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ»

Sneaky, sneaky cuttlefish.
.
The chromatophores on a cuttlefish help it camouflage itself from predators. But did you know they also use it to their benefit when mating?
.
When a male cuttlefish is faced with a larger male vying for the attention of a female, he approaches in between them and flashes two different colorations; on the side facing the male, he flashes a coloration typical of a female in order to sneak by, and on the side facing the female, he shows off trying to get her attention!
.
When they get it on, female cuttlefish, knowing they have options, play the field and store sperm packets of different males to choose from later. Now males know about this strategy and may initiate mating by shooting a stream of water into the female's mouth cavity to clear these sperm packets!
.
Talk about game! What happened to flowers and dinner? πŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ»

.
Here's a master of disguise.. The Frogfish!
.
While many animals use camouflage to hide from predators, the Frogfish mimics soft coral or algae, sometimes luring prey closer with a bait attached to a rod on their forehead, and when prey is close enough.. They strike! This is known as aggressive mimicry!
.
Any other frogfish fans out there?πŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ»

'Take flight'
.
Turtles live an amazing life fraught with danger from the moment they hatch. In addition to the challenges mother nature throws at them, they have to face their biggest threat; humans.
.
Get this.. Not only are turtles and their eggs regularly exploited for food, they are also in danger of getting trapped in debris, hit by boats, and consuming rubbish we throw into the oceans.
.
Thankfully, there are humans such as @juaraturtleproject who are based on Tioman island, helping spread awareness about turtles and also protect their nests to minimise poaching activities. With their help, hopefully we will see more turtles reach maturity, return to the beach they were born, and lay their own eggs.
.
Hands up! How many of you love turtles? πŸ–οΈπŸ»

Is it me, or does this Coleman shrimp look.. Evil? 😈

.
See the faint blue rings on this octopus? These rings are where this species get their name; the Blue-ringed octopus.
.
While their name may not sound as terrifying as 'Vampire squid' (if that doesn't scream GTFO I don't know what does), I highly recommend you do NOT mess with these octopuses.
.
Although very small, they are one of the most venomous marine animals; their venom contains a powerful neurotoxin also found in puffer fish, and is capable of killing an adult human in minutes!
.
Tell me! Have you see one of these before? πŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ»

.
The next time you see these paddle-shaped Avrainvillea seaweeds, look closely.
.
No, actually.. Look very, VERY closely! You might get lucky and spot the sheep-like Costasiella kuroshimae!
.
Arguably cuter than a baby panda, these nudibranch are tiny, measuring about 3mm long.
.
Not only super-kawaii, these sea slugs have a close relation-sheep (sorry) with chloroplasts they ingest, using them for photosynthesis, allowing them to live for months on solar power!
.
Don't you think that's awesome?! πŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ»

'The Pretender'
.
Ever wished you could be someone else, even for a day?
.
The Mimic octopus (Thaumoctopus mimicus) pretends to be someone, or something, else daily, be it a banded sea snake, lionfish, flounder and more.They use mimicry as a form of defense, tricking their predators into thinking they're something else!
.
Yesterday's Foo Fighters concert was AWESOME! Lost my voice from screaming along with their songs and I have a few bruises from the mosh pit, but I'll live.

Any Foo Fighters fans out there? 🀘🐻
