The Kingdom of Namena, by Lee James Pantas

Painting # 12 The Kingdom of Namena

Fantasy Biology

The far eastern border of the reef is a region known as The Kingdom of Namena. It stretches for thousand of meters out towards the  deep ocean, and is home to a green and yellow striped coral (green et jaune rayee coral), a species of green moray eel found also in the coral reefs of the Fiji Islands,  and two species found only on Liza's Reef -a unique pinkish red seahorse and a brilliantly colored yellow, orange, fuscia and green fish the islanders call

The name Namena, a Fijian name, was given by this part of Liza's Reef because of the presence of the green moray eels, which are also found in abundance on the well known Namena Barrier Reef in Fiji.
