Town Pier Seahorse by Jake Richter
About the image
Bonaire’s Town Pier is one of the must-do dive spots on Bonaire. That’s not because it’s pretty – it’s not – the sea floor is covered in tires, clothes, food scraps and countless other artifacts of man’s existence above the waters. But that environment also provides lots of food to marine species which they might otherwise have to compete for. As a result, the Town Pier is home to an amazing diversity of sponges, corals, crabs, eels, fish, shrimp, and all sorts of other critters, in sizes one normally does not see elsewhere. And the abundance of such life and growth makes it a safer place for creatures like this Longsnout Seahorse, which I found cohabitating with a sponge of similar color.
