Marine creatures and their behaviors.
01:54
Jellyfish travel long distances in ocean currents, feeding on plankton and reproducing quickly.
Portuguese man o' war paralyzes its prey with lethal tentacles and collects and digests small fish using powerful chemicals.
Spider crabs in Australia migrate to shallower waters to shed their shells and grow.
The molting process of spider crabs leaves them vulnerable to predators like stingrays who are attracted to soft, freshly molted crabs for easy consumption.
โœฆ
Crabs and predators in the coral triangle.
11:25
Shore crabs gather on tropical shores, waiting for the tide to go out to feed on seaweed-covered rocks.
Crabs face threats like Moray eels and octopuses while crossing land to reach feeding grounds.
A cuttlefish in the coral triangle specializes in hunting crabs using its ability to change colors and patterns to hypnotize its prey.
The reef is a competitive space full of life and opportunities but also risks for the crabs.
โœฆ
Life on a remote atol in the Indian Ocean.
21:21
Fledglings learn to fly and hunt in the shallow lagoon.
Giant trevally fish hunt in groups due to abundant prey.
Saddle black clownfish found safety among carpet anemone.
Female clownfish leads the family, while the male proves his worth.

The life cycle of various marine animals, including crabs and sharks, is explored in this segment.
31:46
A crab seeks a safe place for the female boss to lay her eggs, ultimately using a nearby shell with the assistance of a hermit crab.
The female crab lays her eggs in the shell, which are then fertilized by the male crab, who diligently cares for them until they hatch.
A blue shark embarks on a long journey across ocean currents, eventually finding a dead whale for sustenance.
Smaller sharks like the blue shark feed on the remains of the whale, while great white sharks dominate the whale carcass, attracting more sharks to the feeding frenzy.

Male cuttlefish compete for females in Australian summer.
38:12
Goliath, a giant male cuttlefish, stands out with his size and colorful skin.
A smaller male cuttlefish tries to deceive Goliath by mimicking a female's appearance.
The deceptive behavior ensures genetic diversity for the female's young.
In Northern Japan, giant male cobia fish attempt to breed with females in their territory.
โœฆ
Challenges faced by male animals in the Arctic due to new rulers emerging.
46:50
Larger males intimidate opponents for territory, leading to transformations in females allowing them to have more mates and offspring.
Seabirds like puffins share the burden of raising chicks, with parents alternating fishing trips.
Puffins must fly long distances to reach good fishing grounds and dive deep for catches, facing threats from skewers with long back wings.
Puffins need to choose moments wisely to avoid predators and ensure successful hunting for their chicks in changing seas.
โœฆ
Highlights of the Deep Sea Ecosystem.
55:14
Creatures in the deep sea use light signals for communication, such as the fangtooth fish hunting by illuminating itself.
Siphonophores are capable of cloning themselves repeatedly, making them virtually eternal.
Marine snow, created by organic debris sinking to the sea floor, serves as food for filter feeders.
Despite appearing lifeless at first, the deep seabed is home to unique mud-dwelling creatures like the sea toad.
โœฆ
Unique ecosystem at lake with concentrated saltwater surrounded by diverse marine life.
01:03:52
Creatures in the brine can suffer from toxic shock, leading some to rise above while others become casualties.
Giant mussels and cutthroat eels are present in the lake, creating a thriving ecosystem.
Over time, casualties accumulate around the lake margins, showcasing the harsh environment.
