Puru Dhanghal is the term used by the Malulgal language Group of the the Zenadth Kes nation (Torres Strait islanders) for dugong mating.

In this image I have portrayed a dugong mating and Karamal (Yellow tail travelly) also the Gapu (Suckerfish). It is a beautiful sight watching these sea creatures at play. I have encounted these moments while diving for crayfish. It is common to have travelly and suckerfishers to be swimming with the larger sea creatures.
