Divers who take a closer look at the reefs of Wakatobi might just run into what looks like a diminutive undersea dragon with jaws agape. In fact, they've found a ribbon eel. These skinny members of the moray family begin life as jet-black males, then turn a bright blue as they mature. Finding a ribbon eel in its terminal yellow phase is relatively rare, as this is a sign that they have made their final transition to a female.
These colorful “sea dragons” are just one of many unique creatures that can be found on the protected reefs surrounding Wakatobi Dive Resort and the regions visited by the resort’s dive liveaboard Pelagian.
