As the sun rises higher in the sky the bumbheads have disapeared and another hunter of the nightfind his niche. A moray eel retreats into his burrow to awit a darker moment and recommence his hunting. The largest in terms of total mass is the giant moray (Gymnothorax javanicus), which reaches 3m in length and 30kg in weight. It is so amazing to watch this giant swimming around the wreck of the Liberty.
As the sun crept over the reef crest, we came across a school of adolescent golden batfish cruising the wall. In this species, the juvenile is very similar to the adult form. This isn’t the case for some other species of batfish where the juvenile Pinnate mimics a toxic flatworm, the juvenile Batavia is black and white striped to hide among feather stars and the juvenile Circular, which is an almost exact replica of a leaf.
