Snake eels and Moray eels. Part 5 of my documentary, "Mucky Secrets", about the fascinating marine life of the Lembeh Strait in Indonesia.

In this video I look at different types of eel in the Lembeh Strait. Snake eels are common here. A convict snake eel, Leiuranus versicolor, swims in the open and bears a coloration similar to some sea snakes, which may deter predators.

Snake eels burrow tail-first into the sand, with just the head exposed. They are ambush predators. We encounter a stargazer snake eel, Brachysomophis cirrocheilos, and a highfin snake eel, Ophichthus altipennis, being cleaned of parasites and dead skin by magnificent shrimps, Ancylomenes magnificus.

Moray eels are also common. We encounter a free-swimming snowflake moray, Echidna nebulosa, and a whitemouth moray, Gymnothorax meleagris. A palechin moray, Gymnothorax herrei, bears the scars of previous conflicts on its face.

Finally I take a look at the ribbon eel, Rhinomuraena quaesita. Juvenile ribbon eels are black with are black with a pale yellow border to the dorsal fin and lower jaw. As it grows older, the ribbon eel turns into a male, taking on a bright blue and yellow coloration. Later, the eel changes into a female. It loses the blue and takes on a completely yellow color.

Ribbon eels have greatly expanded anterior nostrils, along with protruding barbels on both jaws, apparently to help them sense passing prey.

There are English captions showing either the full narration or the common and scientific names of the marine life, along with the dive site names.

"Mucky Secrets" is being serialised weekly on YouTube. Please subscribe to my channel to receive notifications of new episodes as I release them. The series will feature a huge diversity of weird and wonderful marine animals including frogfish, nudibranchs, scorpionfish, crabs, shrimps, moray eels, seahorses, octopus, cuttlefish etc..

The video was shot by Nick Hope with a Sony HVR-Z1P HDV camera in a Light & Motion Bluefin HD housing with Light & Motion Elite lights and a flat port. A Century +3.5 diopter was used for the most of the macro footage.

The Monterey area has some superb diving opportunities. Many of these areas are off limits to those wishing to harvest a bit of dinner. This video was shot completely outside of these "protected" areas and shows the diversity of life that can be found in many common dive sites. 07:38

As the Kittiwake hit the bottom, divers hit the water and cased her down to discover this new dive site.  You will see air still venting from the vessel as she settles down in to her new home, under the sea. 04:01

    [ Info ] Wannadive is safe! Hi, Firefox and Chrome users may experiment some difficulties in accessing Wannadive with their web browser. An ugly screen is telling Wannadive could provide malwares and not be safe!... Our ad server has been attacked Sept 15, and we did fix the problem a couple of hours later. Wannadive is now 100% safe. What still happen? Firefox and Google uses a database to track websites where malwares were detected. We ask Google to remove Wannadive from this database but it can takes a few hours/days? :-( Waiting for Google update, you can use a different web browser to access your favorite dive site atlas and community: Internet Explorer or Opera. Those browsers don\'t check Google\'s database. All the best, Wannadive team
