Good morning friends, I have one of the hands down most colorful sponges I have ever found for you today and it was found attached to mangrove roots in Fuik Bay! Yesterday morning at around 8:30 I joined the scientists from Sirenas on a boat ride to Fuik Bay. We were loaded with cameras and dive gear for a fun morning of diving in shallow water along the mangrove roots in search of sponges for medical research. The boat ride there was rough but fun and only took around 20 minutes and once there I immediately jumped in with my tank and camera and went in search of sponges. The first thing I found on the sand was an upside down jellyfish called Cassiopeia xamachana and they were everywhere! As I swam around shooting them I was shocked at just how many colors they came in, the blue ones were out of this world! MORE
