Nuweiba's Mimic Octopus disappears in a puff of smoke

| No TrackBacks

The very elusive Mimic Octopus has made another magical appearance for Emperor Divers in Nuweiba. At the start of a dive on the House Reef last month, guest, Jenny Johnson, managed to get a couple of quick shots of this little Mimic Octopus before it disappeared with a spurt of ink back to the sanctuary of its hole in the sand (first two pics). A kind of 'now you see me now you don't occasion!'

The Mimics have been here in Nuweiba for many years as this photo from regular visitor to Emperor Divers, Steve Mullooly, taken in 2005 shows (far right).
