WUNDERPUS (Wunderpus photogenicus)

The wonderpus octopus is a species of octopus in the monotypic genus Wunderpus. It is found in shallow waters from Bali and Sulawesi north to the Philippines and east to Vanuatu. W. photogenicus is a long-armed species characterised by "small eyes on elongate stalks, a long, conical papilla over each eye and a dramatic and fixed colour pattern of white bars and spots over a brown-red background

W. photogenicus is often confused with the similarly coloured Mimic Octopus, Thaumoctopus mimicus. Both T. mimicus and W. photogenicus can have variable activity patterns, however T. mimicus is most often diurnal, while Wunderpus tends to emerge very slowly from dens in the sand at dusk and dawn and is a crepuscular hunter.

Wunderpus photogenicus has well-defined white spots on the mantle, and bars on the arms. They lack a white border at the base of the suckers. These are some of the traits that distinguish it from T. mimicus, which has poorly-defined dark and white markings on the mantle, and a bright white line along the base of the suckers. The white spots of Wunderpus are unique among individuals, allowing for the use of photo identification to monitor individuals in the wild. Wunderpus hatchlings can be identified by their unique 'founder chromatophore' patterns.

Most Popular Dive sites


MAINIT POINT (ANILAO SECRET BAY)

Mainit, Tagalog for "hot", is a world-famous dive site near Anilao that is literally hot along the shore, with warm springs found just offshore. Underwater macro photographers love to explore Mainit for the wide variety of undersea life that flourishes there. This is definitely one of the prime places for MUCK DIVING!.

Other quality muck dive sites are Anilao Pier, Basura and Balanoi Secret Garden.

ANILAO TWIN ROCKS

'Twin Rocks' is one of the best, and most popular, recreational diving sites in Anilao. It is a marine sanctuary where wildlife flourishes. So-called because of two parallel sets of rock formation at a depth of 5-18m/15-60 feet), Twin Rocks is one of the busiest dive sites in Anilao. It is most often requested by both beginning and experienced open water divers who love shallow dives and healthy, vibrant reefs. A wide variety of Giant Clams, Surgeonfish, Batfish and schools of Jack are commonplace.

SOMBRERO ISLAND, BEATRIZE ROCK, SEPOC WALL AND KIRBYS ROCK

These dive sites are all located roughly 15 minutes by boat from the Anilao resorts. They are popular reefs and hideouts for underwater photographers. Each of these dive sites are very healthy and contain lots of soft and hard corals found on gentle, broad slopes that give way to sudden, steep drop-offs. Excellent for wide-angle underwater photography.
