  1. Anybody know what produces these kind of eggs? Cozumel, August, 20 feet, Sand w/ sea grasses & algae Eggs attaches to algae Depth of egg casings around 1/2 inch by maybe 3-4 inches across Individual casings appear to contain tiny round eggs Overall appearance is similar to a wasp nest Thanks, Bud Barr
  2. My wife and I were diving in Bonaire in January and we kept finding these spider web looking structures in coral heads. They were quite common as we saw them on almost every dive both day and night. The web seems very strong and must be somewhat sticky as I saw a squat anemone shrimp stuck in one. The Things Web by Bud Barr, on Flickr The Things Web1 by Bud Barr, on Flickr After what seemed like endless searching, we finally got a look at what is down there. The Thing by Bud Barr, on Flickr The Thing2 by Bud Barr, on Flickr The Thing5 by Bud Barr, on Flickr The Thing12 by Bud Barr, on Flickr The Thing14 by Bud Barr, on Flickr Over 3 weeks, we saw a creature in 5 separate webs all during the day. The ones I took pictures of did not seem to be bothered by our flashlights or my strobes. One of them, after about 10 minutes of observation, backed down the web a little ways and then turned head down and went deeper into the coral head. We watched it's segmented body go by for what seemed like forever so it was quite long. Soon after, it's head came part way up through a different web in the same coral head. We are guessing "The Thing", but we haven't seen this web building behavior documented anywhere so I thought someone out there might be able to shed some light on it. Thanks, Bud

  4. Once again, thanks Leslie! Bud
  5. Dominica, 20-40 feet, sand, turtle grass Color variations of the same anemone? Are these turtle grass anemones? Thanks, Bud
  6. Should I just say "ditto? Dominica, 20-40 feet, sand, turtle grass, numerous sightings Sorry if this is just a turtle grass anemone. I've found lots of pictures of turtle grass anemones but you can only see tentacles, not the body. This one look familiar? Thanks, Bud
  7. Thanks to all.... I'm almost certain it's not an orange ball corallimorph. This area had lots of those so we got to see them at night, and those that were not completely hidden, during the day as well. They are pretty distinctive and look nothing like this creature. This may have to remain a mystery. Bud
  8. Dominica, 15 feet, boulders: Never saw any tentacles, even at night, but height, shape and size did change from day to day. The mouth is clearly visible in the third picture and the blue coloration also came and went. Thanks, Bud
  9. Leslie, That is too bad. When I first spotted it, it was being dive bombed by some razor fish. At one point is was up in the water column swimming like crazy but not going anywhere. I chased off the fish and when it began burrowing in the sand I thought all was well. Are these worms able to regenerate their missing parts? Bud
  10. At 25 feet, sand, turtle grass. This thing was flat, like a pancake, and attached to a shell that had been taken over by a hermit crab. It seemed to have a center opening or mouth (which I don't have a good picture of but can get one if needed) and some reddish bumps around the outer edge. Upon further "inspection", these pink, thread like, tentacles started extending from the bumps.. Any ideas? Thanks, Bud
  11. Again, from Dominica, 25 feet, sand, turtle grass. I know the pictures don't show that well because he so closely resembled the sand but, he ignored my invitation to take a ride on my white balance card. I thought the 6 "horns" or "prongs" on this little guy were interesting. There were lots of furry sea cucumbers in the area, some pretty small, but nothing around that looked like this. Thanks, Bud
  12. Found at 15 feet on a mooring rope (gotta do something for 3 minutes, right?) This was about 3-4 inches long. Sorry, not the best picture, too many things moving. Thanks, Bud
  13. At 25 feet, sand, heavy turtle grass: Thanks, Bud
  14. Wow! Have you been told lately how valuable you are to this forum??? Thanks for clearing it up.
