Predjama Castle Predjama Castle is a renaissance castle built within a cave mouth in south-central Slovenia. It is only accessible from one side and from that direction is protected with a cliff. The interesting thing about this castle is that there is a secret passage through the cave, which meant that during a siege the castle inhabitants could sneak out and get food and drink supply. predjamasloveniatravelclifffogcavecastlewarHabsburgseuropemountaindiscovermajesticlonelyplanetexplorewanderlusttravelgraminstatravelstunning_shotsamazingnatgeomarvelshotsphotography

Golden Mantis Shrimp (Lysioquilloides mapia) This is a relatively newly described specie, only in 2003. Its body is totally goldish in colour including its eyes. Mantis Shrimp packed one of the strongest punch in the world, equivalent to the acceleration of a 0.22 calibre bullet. They uses this to punch or spear their prey. The impact is strong enough to break even the glass of underwater camera housing. Mantis shrimps has one of the most elaborate visual systems, with up to 16 photoreceptors and can see UV. mantisdivingvisionscubascubadivescubadivingdiveshrimpwildlifenatureseaoceanuwuwphotographyphotographypadinatgeoindonesialifewater_of_our_worldanimalseamarvelshotsmarinelifecreatureswater_perfectionamazinglembeh

Stargazer Stargazers are a family of perciform fish that have eyes on top of their heads (hence the name). In addition to the top-mounted eyes, a stargazer also has a large, upward-facing mouth. Their usual habit is to bury themselves in sand, and leap upwards to ambush prey (fish and invertebrates) that pass overhead. Some species have a worm-shaped lure growing out of the floors of their mouths, which they can wiggle to attract prey's attention. Lengths range from 18-90cm. stargazerfishburydivinghidingscubascubadivescubadivingdivecamouflagewildlifenatureseaoceanuwuwphotographyphotographypadinatgeomelbournelifewater_of_our_worldanimalseamarvelshotsmarinelifecreatureswater_perfectionamazingcute

Denise's pygmy seahorse - 10mm Denise's pygmy seahorse uses adaptive camouflage, changing its colour to match that of the surrounding gorgonians. It feeds on small crustaceans and other zooplankton.  An individual will stay on a single coral for the duration of its entire life. The species is ovoviviparous, and it is the male who broods the eggs in its ventral brood pouch. The latter includes villi rich in capillaries that surround each fertilized egg creating a sort of placenta supplying the embryos. When fully grown, pups are expelled from the pocket and become autonomous. seahorseorangedivingmacroscubaphotophotoofthedayscubadivingdivewildlifenatureseaoceanuwuwphotographyphotographypadinatgeoindonesialifewater_of_our_worldanimalseamarvelshotsmarinelifecreatureswater_perfectionamazingbalicute

Harlequin Shrimp - 20mm Harlequin Shrimps usually spend their whole life with one partner and together they hunt and defend their homes. Harlequin Shrimps are typically found in tropical waters, where they live on and around coral reefs. They are a relatively shy shrimp, preferring to stay in enclosed, small, dark areas. They also tend to stay in the same spot. Harlequin Shrimps are very particular about what they eat. They have a unique diet; they only feed on starfish, including the Crown-of-Thorns starfish. shrimpcoraldivingmacroscubaphotophotoofthedayscubadivingdivewildlifenatureseaoceanuwuwphotographyphotographypadinatgeoindonesialifewater_of_our_worldanimalseamarvelshotsmarinelifecreatureswater_perfectionamazingbalicute

Decorator crab - 30mm The Decorator Crab is the most spidery of all the intertidal spider crabs, and has long and slender legs. This crab has quite an amazing adaptation for camouflage: it has sharp spines all over its body that allow it to actively decorate itself with things such as bits of seaweed, little pieces of sponge and any thing else in their environment that makes them blend in. Also, the first legs have pinchers specifically designed for handling the decorations. If the Decorator Crab is taken from one environment and moved to another it will shed its previous decorations and use the new material. crabcoraldivingmacroscubaphotophotoofthedayscubadivingdivewildlifenatureseaoceanuwuwphotographyphotographypadinatgeoindonesialifewater_of_our_worldanimalseamarvelshotsmarinelifecreatureswater_perfectionamazingbalicutedecorate

Tiger shrimp - 20mm The Tiger Shrimp (Phyllognatia ceratophthalmus) belong to the same family as the Harlequin and Bumblebee Shrimps and are relatively small in size – they grow to a maximum of 20mm but are often smaller. They live cryptic and are usually hidden in sponges, rubble, algae or broken coral – mostly in a encrusted mix of them. They live very often in pairs – sometimes even in little groups or families. shrimpcoraldivingmacroscubaphotophotoofthedayscubadivingdivewildlifenatureseaoceanuwuwphotographyphotographypadinatgeoindonesialifewater_of_our_worldanimalseamarvelshotsmarinelifecreatureswater_perfectionamazingbalicute
