What do you make of this?? | Debbie's Caribbean Resort Reviews Forums

While snorkelling at Los Corales, my snorkel buddy turned over a rock. This is the picture I took of what was under it. I have been trying to interpret what I see. Context: there was a Balloonfish a few feet from the rock, whether it was there or moved there after my friend disturbed the rock, I do not know. However, I see a patch of what looks like a Pufferfish under the whatever they are in the picture. Also, moving up a little, what is that?
Here is the little Balloonfish:

Los Corales snorkelling

eeeefarm, wish I could help you, where is our diver from the Maldives. His user name evades me but I think his name is Terry bet you he would know.I have 30+ dives at this resort and snorkeled quite a bit in front by the big rock. Is that where you saw the "bobbit worm" or whatever it is? Definitely a new underwater species for me. The link you provided indicates that the worm is from Indonesia and the Phillipines. Would that make it odd to have one in the Caribbean. Once again great pictures in your album. so clear. thanks for sharing your diving experience. Hope someone out there can answer your question.

Wossa (Warren) will see this.
Not sure if I would have reached in and dragged it out, either, LOL

thanks Spunky that’s who I was thinking of. looks like his last post was in February 2015 so he is still around!

I am hoping for Warren or Cristal (YVRck). I visited a few sites that say this type of creature exists all over, so that’s why I am guessing. I took the picture not far off the beach down towards the western channel. The rest of the pictures were mostly inside the reef. The Blue Tang schools were outside. We went out through the channel once, but there was a fair bit of current……some big rollers coming in……and the other time we went out was on the Hobie. I usually see more inside the reef than out anyhow! Lots of lobsters this trip, and several eels.

I see an Octopus ….on a tube train in London at the moment so internet rubbish, I will have a better look when home and on a computer (looking on my mobile phone, pic is small).

Sorry eeeefarm but this one has me totally perplexed. I’ll check with a couple of my colleagues who might be able to identify.

My first reaction was that the worm-like creature could be a species of sea cucumber. Hard to tell because I don’t have a sense of scale. If I’m seeing correctly, there appears to be a juvenile octopus wrapped around the sea grass in the background as well- perhaps eating the small fish?Waiting to hear back from my colleague, so I’ll post again when I get his reply.

Great photos as always!
