The last one could be a Hypselodoris Capensis. Perhentian actually has loads of nudis.........more than Tenggol.It's just that the land mass in Perhentian is too wide to cover.

The photo of the coral catshark was taken during a night dive at Batu Nisan. It froze when caught by the light from the dive torches.

A few more shots.

Bro,

Isn't that a Glossodoris Cincta as opposed to Chromodoris Albonpunctata?

this is sad but a true story. last time i dived in perhentian, around 2009... we encountered a large mesh bag that was entangled in corals.. inside it, 12 of these coral cat sharks and 3 bamboo sharks. we cut open the net to release them. 3 of them is dead, 1 half dead and the rest after we moved it around to help it breath they swam away.

the half dead one we do not know what happened to it. we just put it under a coral hopefully it will regain strength and swim away without getting eaten by larger predators.

its sad to know this is acts from divers... fisherman do not use mesh bags... they use nets.
