Affectionately known as Kat the Dugong; he has called the Cocos (Keeling) Islands home for the past 10 years. He is a lone male and has made it into the record books by swimming the furtherest distance from any known dugong colony. He may have come from Exmouth… he may have come from Indonesia; wherever he hails, it’s a jolly long way.
Even though he is alone, he interacts with various species of fish, like this batfish, chases mantas and even enjoys a game of “you’re it” with divers; swimming over their heads then letting out a piercing squeal. He enjoys a game of chasey, but when he’s had enough, two flicks of that huge tail and he is gone.
