Mating Wonderpuses

Wonderpus mating in Lembeh

This week we had a couple of wonderful dives at TK Bay – with many different critters including Velvet Ghost Pipefish (white), Seahorses, Cockatoo Flounder, Coconut Octopus, Tiger Shrimps and many more. But the highlight was for sure this couple of mating Wonderpuses. We watched them mating for about 10 minutes before they split. Even though i have seen this before, this was the first time carrying a camera. And it was also pretty much the first time that i used the video function of the 7D (in almost 2 years …). So here is some shaky and out of focus footage of this very special moment:
