Cuttlefish Eating Fish Alive


 

While on a night dive I spotted this hunting cuttlefish eating fish alive. The cuttlefish is an ambush predator and a master at colour changing. It has 8 tentacles and shoots out two long feeding tentacles to catch the fish. 
Its two arms are covered in suckers, which holds the prey tightly while it pulls the fish toward its beak for eating. 
As you can see, the cuttlefish catches fish very quickly. 

These are some of the marinelife we may see on a dive with Wild Kenya Safaris.

Giraffe and Zebras Feeding Together


 

A lovely sight of some giraffe and zebras feeding together around a tree. Its quite normal to find different species close to one another especially while feeding as its when they are the most vulnerable to predator's. 

When wildlife are feeding together they all share the role to keep an eye out for danger.

Beautiful Eyes | Mantis Shrimp

 



The mantis shrimp has quite beautiful and unusual eyes. 
While humans have 3 photoreceptors, mantis shrimp have 16 photoreceptors and can see in ultra violet, visible and polarised light while moving each eye independently. 

This mantis shrimp is hidden in the sand waiting to catch any prey that passes by. 

These are some of the marine life we may see on a scuba diving trip with Wild Kenya Safaris.

Beautiful Eyes | flathead

 



A flathead fish body is flat and wide from its dorsal fin to its mouth, which means that the beautiful eyes of the flathead fish are both facing upwards. 

Since flatheads prefer to burry themselves in the sand, having eyes on top of their heads means they can see what prey is passing overtop of them to grab. 
These are some of the marine life we may see on a scuba diving trip with Wild Kenya Safaris.

Beautiful Eyes | Octopus

 


The beautiful eyes of an octopus can actually only see in black and white. 
They however do have more photoreceptors than any other vertebrate and their rectangular shaped pupils may allow them to detect fine details in color. 

We can actually see some of its tentacles colour changing trying to blend into the rocky background. Its also really cool to watch the octopus in respiration, breathing in oxygen and exhaling through its tube known as a siphon. 

These are some of the marine life we may see on a scuba diving trip with Wild Kenya Safaris.

Beautiful Eyes | Guitar Fish

 



The beautiful eyes of a guitar fish. 

Named after its guitar like shape, this fish looks like a cross between a shark and a ray.

Since the guitar fish does not have eyelids, it has developed a unique way to protect its eyes by using a muscle which can retract its eye ball right into its head. Because the guitar fish feeds on crabs and fish on the sea bed, usually a lot of sand is disbursed during the hunt as especially as the prey would thrash about. Being able to retract its eyeball would help it protect the eyes from sand and coral.

Beautiful Eyes | Puffer Fish

 



The beautiful eyes of a puffer fish.

The puffer fish is one of the few species of fish that have corneal iridescence which reflects a specific wavelength of light. For each fish the Iridescent layer of pigment over and around the eye is different and unique, which makes watching them always so interesting. The magical colors and patterns of the glow gives the impression that you are staring into a galaxy.

Zebra Against Zebra

 


Watching zebras battle it out against one another really makes you realize that they are not the docile animals one makes them out to be. A zebra against zebra fight involves a lot of biting and kicking.
