Mucky Secrets – Part 9 – Mandarinfish & other Dragonets – Lembeh Strait


This Mucky Secrets video is the ninth in a series of 20 videos that can be viewed as a continuous playlist on YouTube, if your attention span is long enough!

Nick has completed of a 90 minute documentary on his experience in the Lembeh Strait which is available as a DVD.

I posted the first 7 videos over a period of months and they were well received.

I posted Part 8 – Sea Moths, Flying Gurnards, Blennies & Gobies – Lembeh Strait in November 2015.

Then I took some time off.

They are so spectacular, I’ll be posting  more of Nick’s work on the blog for a while.

So if you like these incredibly well done videos and are fascinated by the creatures they describe, keep an eye out for them and also pass them along to your friends.

Now here is the video.



Here are a few screen shot stills I really liked.

Pretty spectacular!
