Im so sorry its been such a long time since the last post but if you have been keeping up with our facebook page, you would have seen the updates from our safari, so I was sort of busy with research so I apologize.
Because of the unexpected nature of our sport, the route was changed and we ended up diving Ras Mohamed, Thistlegorm, and Tiran reefs instead which was equally rewarding (hello, dolphins on our first check dive?) of course, because of my luck; I was practically the only one on the safari boat to have NOT seen the dolphins even though I was in the water at the same time..towards the end of the safari, me not seeing the dolphins became, sort of, a thing..
I have managed to see so many great things from Napoleon wrasses with a questionable growth on its head, to GIANT moray eels and Eagle rays. oh yeah, and have I mentioned the dolphins everyone saw? (Check out the pictures and videos on our facebook page if you haven’t already!)
Here is an interesting fact about napoleon wrasses or Humphead wrasses; at nine years old, some members of the population, change their sex to males. The reason for this timely change is yet to be discovered but it has been a known phenomenon in both terrestrial and marine life as well!
Stay tuned for next week’s blog post and interesting fact!
