Home of the Bunaken Sea Garden and Raja Ampat in the coral triangle, unusual creatures are the norm in Indonesia, both below the sea and above. Is that really two sea snakes? Or is it the recently discovered mimic octopus? Robust and ornate ghost pipefish and pygmy sea horses hide amidst the colorful coral in an attempt to not be seen. Part of the Ring of Fire, Indonesia has the largest number of active volcanoes in the world. With over 17,000 islands, 6,000 of which are inhabited, Indonesia covers a total of 741,100 square miles. The highest point is Puncak Jaya at 16,502 feet.
