Lionfish, Sea Urchins, Crown of Thorns - Reef Life of the Andaman - Part 17

Lionfishes, sea urchins and the crown of thorns starfish. Part 17 of my DVD, "Reef Life of the Andaman", available at http://www.bubblevision.com/marine-life-DVD.htm

In this video we take a look at marine life from Thailand and Burma that uses venomous spines as a form of defence.

Of the lionfish family, the red lionfish, Pterois volitans, is most common across the Andaman Sea, but it is possible that some or all of these are actually the similar Devil Firefish, Pterois miles. Both species are very similar and possess venomous spines along their fins. We meet specimens across various dive sites near Phuket, at Richelieu Rock, and at Black Rock in the Mergui Archipelago.

Other species that are included are the zebra lionfish, Dendrochirus zebra, the rare frillfin turkeyfish, Pterois mombasae, and the spotfin lionfish, Pteroid antennata.

We then look at the crown-of-thorns starfish, or crown-of-thorns sea star, Acanthaster planci, which also has stinging, venomous spines on its body that contain a neuro-toxin intended to cause paralysis. This starfish feeds on hard corals and human intervention has been required in some parts of the world where these starfish threatened to destroy enitre reef systems.

Finally we examine sea urchins, specifically the black longspine urchin, Diadema setosum, which is prevalent across the Andaman Sea. We see a large colony of them at Racha Yai Island, near Phuket in Thailand.

The full narration is available as English, German or Spanish subtitles by turning on the closed captions (CC). There are also closed captions available showing scientific and common names of the marine life in English, German or Dutch, along with dive site names.

Thanks to Erik Verkoyen for the music track, "Black Corals".

The video was shot by Nick Hope with a Sony VX2000 DV camera in a Gates housing. It was edited in Sony Vegas Pro then deinterlaced with QTGMC and upscaled to 720p HD in AviSynth.

Thanks to Santana Diving of Phuket (http://www.santanaphuket.com), to Elfi and Uli Erfort for help with the German translation, and to Frank Nelissen for the Dutch subtitles.

    [ 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
