Mabul is arguably one of the riches single destinations for exotic small marine life anywhere in the world. Flamboyant cuttlefish, blue-ringed octopus, mimic octopus and bobtail squids are just some of the numerous types of cephalopods to be found on Mabul's reef. The sight of harlequin shrimp feeding on sea stars and boxer crabs waving their tiny anemone pompoms are just a small example of the endless species of crustaceans. Many types of gobies can be found including goby dot-fin, black goby of the sail-fin goby and metallic shrimp. The Frogfish is everywhere - the giant frogfish, clown painted and looks almost regularly with the entire family of scorpion fish. It would be quicker to list the species not found at Mabul - crazy critters are in abundance at this magical macro site! Local business philosophy is very dangerous to the eco system of the area. Garbage on the island routinely discharged on the north side of the island was he becomes someone else passes the problem down. The population of the island of tourists and temporary Bajau (sea gypsy) has a detrimental effect to the water table of the islands.
