Mucky Secrets – Part 11 – Juvenile Fishes – Lembeh Strait

 The Mucky Secrets Part – 11 video is the eleventh in a series of 20 videos that can be viewed as a continuous playlist on YouTube, if your attention span is long enough! It shows the remarkable changes between the juvenile and adult stages of development of several species.

You’ll be as fascinated as I to see these changes, especially when you realize that the juvenile fish are tiny in comparison to their adult counterparts.

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.

I posted Part 9 – Mandarinfish & other Dragonets – Lembeh Strait on January 8, 2016

And I posted Part 10 – Frogfish – Lembeh Strait on February 3, 2016.

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.
