Recently a few of us from Davy Jones Locker went on a night dive in Hin Wong Bay.Hin Wong Bay has a large variety of fish that become more active after sun down. Towards the end of the dive, one of us noticed a porcupine fish, these fish are normally very slow and tend to hang around in one area.
This particular porcupine fish was hanging around the group for a while. They are friendly fish which tend to be very docile unless they feel threatened. Porcupine fish do live in the shallow to mid shallow waters, which means you can see them on any course you take in Koh Tao, however this particular one was seen on a night dive during an advanced course when they are most active!
