"Mucky Secrets" is a documentary about the marine life of the Lembeh Strait at the heart of the Coral Triangle off north Sulawesi in Indonesia. The DVD is available at

The Lembeh Strait is a popular scuba diving destination, famed for its excellent "muck diving". A huge diversity of exotic marine creatures can be found on the mucky seabed, including everything from tropical fish to benthic sharks to nudibranchs. Critters compete for survival with an armoury including camouflage, mimicry, toxicity, and dazzling coloration.

"Mucky Secrets" is an excellent resource for scuba divers, aquarists, and marine biology students. The documentary features underwater macro footage from many of Lembeh's famous dive sites including Critter Hunt, Police Pier, Tanjung Kusu-Kusu, Nudi Falls, Aer Perang, Jahir, Makawide, Nudi Retreat, Retak Larry, TK (Teluk Kembahu), Hairball and Aw Shucks.

There are subtitles/CC tracks for the narration and for the scientific and common names of the marine species, and dive site names.

1. I recommend watching the prologue before this:
2. "Fishes" is the correct plural when referring to multiple species of fish.
3. There are subtitle tracks for the narration and marine life names.
4. The ads allow me to share these documentaries for free. There are no ads on the DVDs ( ).

31:13 god/the creators 2 year old niece must made this creature lol....

God put it right on the refrigerator to create later. And he was proud of it. The things looks 2 dimensional. " You're lost little buddy, you're in the third dimension " Looking like a construction paper cut out with one of those googly eyes on it.

Israel salvaje: LA NATURALEZA DEL MAR ROJO Mucky Secrets (full) - The Marine 2 months ago   46:02

EPISODIO 3 - El sur de Israel alberga dos mundos completamente diferentes. Un mar tropical y un antiguo arrecife rico en vida marina conviven junto a un duro paisaje desértico ocupado por reptiles y acacias. En el arrecife de coral se ha desarrollado un sorprendente mundo de simbiosis y asociaciones, incluso entre animales de diferentes especies. ¿Cuáles han elegido vivir aislados y cuáles prefieren el apoyo del grupo?

Muchos relacionan Israel con una tierra santa por sus muchos lugares históricos y religiosos, pero solo unos pocos destacan de ella su rica vida silvestre y su espectacular variedad de paisajes. Esta serie documental muestra el espectador el Israel más salvaje, desde montañas nevadas hasta el Mar Muerto, el lugar más bajo del planeta, desde inhóspitos desiertos a playas de ensueño. Durante un año completo conoceremos una naturaleza salvaje y rica, casi desconocida, sorprendentes fenómenos naturales e implacables luchas por la supervivencia. La privilegiada situación de Israel como punto de intersección de tres continentes permite reunir en un solo lugar a especies de África, Asía y Europa.
