two Remora feasting on this sea turtle
Hi, nice shot, and I agree with Scott - the remora don't actually feed off the turtle, but use it as a free form of transport. Glad to see Turtles are still spotted off Tioman - there's a lot of trawling in that area :(
Interesting documentation of a commensal relationship between two species. While there are two remora fish featured in the 2nd photo catching a ride (--the commensalism), the spotting is entitled "sea turtle", which although aquatic, is a reptile. I moved it there. Cheers
