This week has a busy week filled with great visibility and a whole plethora of animals for us to observe along the way.
Our first stop of the week was to the muck where we went in search of all things mucky. Along the way we found a variety of sea slug species, soft corals, and we even bumped into one of the most dangerous species for its size.
The blue ringed octopus. This small but mighty octopus has enough venom to kill upto 27 people, talk about packing a punch.
The next stop of the week was to check out some divesites we havent been in a while ont he hunt for photos of some of the rarer corals around the island.
The photos gathered are being used to add to our coral taxonomy database and to provide a better insight as to which genus and species we can find here on Koh Tao.
To round off the week we finsihed with an EMP survey but on the way to the lines we bumped into this delightful fellow who showed us all the best angles.
We had a wonderful week and are looking forward to the last week on the program before we close to prepare for the upcoming season.
Until next remember its
