August and September brought in some warmer weather and the start of the spring breeding on the wreck. We started to see some big schools of eagle rays with over 20 rays at a time. Some of our luckiest divers got some footage of two Leopard sharks with the male holding the female’s tale as she dragged him along.( His plan to make her tired so that he can have his way with her :-p ). As the water temp came up to 24 degrees the smaller bait fish moved in by the thousands making it very hard to see anything past them at time. The GT’s and sharks soon took care of the bait fish numbers with massive feeding action and even an olive sea snake fell victim to a Maori Wrasse. We had a pair of divers contact the Australian Natural Museum to identify a ray that baffled the gurus here at the shop and came up with a Small Eyed Stingray. They are rather rare to see, very cool.
