The Monthly Sightings - August 2015

The staff and guests have been at it again! Recent blogs have covered the "Smallest Batfish Ever" and the dubious "Green Jellyfish" so you can find info about them by scrolling down a bit.

August is typically calm and warm here on Roatan, with minimal weather and currents perhaps that is why it was such a great month for the various elusive tiny organisms (affectionately grouped together as "sea boogers").

Consider the Berolina Headshield Slug, and it's glamorous cousin the Leech Headshield Slug. Unfortunate family names that had to cause all kinds of peer pressure trauma in high school, but incredible finds for the gang here. These animals are not shown on a vast boulder field, the background is sand! They are most certainly small, and come with bragging rights.

Erica's great find!

Erica's great find!

While finding a seahorse is a braggable event here, Erica moved to the front seat of the small bus with her find, and photo of a Red Long Snout Seahorse. We have yet to come across anyone who has spotted this color variation locally. This means "Find of the Week" accolades for sure.
