A copepod endemic to whale sharks! All of the whale sharks we saw here had these all over their lips. More about it here:

According to that they're not harming the sharks, though they do leave discolored marks behind.

It's about time I start posting the weird little things I've been working with. Specimen collected by F. Cavaleiro from the pectoral fins of the European flounder, Platichthys flesus, the typical infection site of the ovigerous females of this species. The date refers to the original sampling date.

I wasn't expecting to find fish in this water well, especially not one of the native cyprinids (which generally prefer fast, well oxygenated waters). Apart from being a completely artificial habitat, the water was brown. However, these guys were not only present, they were breeding like crazy! They even jumped out of water in their frenzy to spawn against the walls of the well! Also, notice the distinctive red pectoral fins of this species.

Description

In the Berlengas islands, a nature reserve off Portugal.This subspecies is endemic to these islands, and apart from an insular population of Timon lepidus (which displayed a different behaviour from those from the continent) that seems to have gone extinct, is the only reptile in this small archipelago. These lizards are larger and have darker bellies than those from the mainland.

The thin dark stripes are typical of the species, but the transversal dark stripes are probably stress related. Caught by fishermen using "arte xávega", a traditional fishing technique.
