Description

This tiny juvenile seahorse was seen next to a small rock on the fine sediment base of Koh He's southern (large) bay at a depth of almost 20m. At about 12mm from crown to tail tip, it is assumed to be a Comes due to the eye spines and double cheek spines, plus having seen Comes in this area before.

Description

This was the largest of the 3 Kudas to be found during the end of 2013 at this site. The female measured up at an easy 18cm. All 3 regularly seen within 20-30m of each other. This larger female wasn't seen after the end of the year - perhaps due to the hand-nets thrown by the fishermen, on and around the ropes where the Kudas were situated.

Description

These 2 Kudas (male + female) were frequently seen during the end of 2013 until April 2014, when surf/surge made the site unsuitable for diving. The male was almost always pregnant. Approx 15cm and 16cm crown to tail tip.
Interesting interaction observed on one night, with 2 large cuttlefish: The Kudas seemed to go about business as usual around the rope, whilst the cuttlefish would feel and wrap tentacles around the kuda - every time flinching back as if in reaction to something. After an hour the cuttlefish and kudas were still interacting - the cuttlefish didn't eat the Kudas!
