Not far from the Sabang Wreck lies an extensive bed of sea grass at between 3-7m (10-23ft). This is also a great place for critters, but you have to look! What at first glance may appear to be a leaf resting on the bottom may actually turn out to be a cockatoo waspfish. Undulating gently in the current, this relative of the scorpionfish forms a perfect imitation of a leaf. Snaking across the bottom, meter-long sea cucumbers resembling vacuum cleaner hoses carry colourful emperor shrimps. Nearby, what appeared to be a tiny red pebble on the sand turned out to be a minute juvenile frogfish. Flying gurnards, wings outstretched like elaborately decorated oriental fans, can be observed skimming over the sandy bottom, while Pegasus sea moths, morays, octopus, finger dragonets, dwarf lionfish, and a varied assortment of shells will compete for the macro enthusiast’s eye.
