    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.

    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):


    Two Amphioctopus marginatus squabbling over possession of shells:


    Broadclub cuttlefish:


    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!):


    Blue-ring octopus with eggs (possibly not H. lunalata; undescribed species?):


    Flamboyant Cuttlefish:
    The Flamboyant Cuttlefish (Metasepia pfefferi)

    Flamboyant Cuttlefish hatching:
