Unusual Orange Sponge: Myripristis jacobus

AvatarBy Barry Brown 5 years agoNo Comments

Good morning friends, today we have two sub dives, the first starting at 9:00. I’m going to have my young intern shoot a go-pro movie of me photographing the sub today and I will try and post that as soon as I can. I have a KILLER, ultra unusual orange sponge for you all today that we found years ago growing in a small cave. To this date this is the only one of these we have ever seen and we visit it on almost every dive.

You can kind of get an idea of the size of the sponge by the little seven-inch Cardinalfish above who we think has adopted the sponge and the cave as his own.  MORE
