Juvenile fish eating jellyfish

30 June 2011 - 03:45 PM

Bob Halstead took this photo during my recent trip in Milne Bay, PNG. It appears to be a juvenile fish eating a small jellyfish.

Does anyone happen to recognize this fish?

Goby ID?

Are there any goby experts who might know what these gobies are? All the photos are from Kokopo (next to Rabaul) in PNG, between 7 and 10 meters depth, mucky bottom.

I think the first one is a species of Vanderhorstia, but not sure. I have no idea for the other two. They are all shrimp gobies.



Update: Got an ID of V. ornatissima for the third one. Looks right to me.

This photo of dragonet is from a friend in Cairns. She took the photo a few years ago, in about 7 to 10 meters of water, among ruble and Acropora corals and came across another one last week.

She's exhausted her supply of critter ID books, and I couldn't find this in any of mine.

Anyone have an idea what species this might be?

Squid ID?

A sperm whale I was swimming with dropped a small squid, photos posted on my blog. Anyone happen to know what kind it is?
