This rare video has been taken from @katherineluphotography! check out her profile, it is full of outstanding pictures.📷 oceanfact: in the video you can observe the beautiful snaky mouvement of a female ribbon eels. females are particularly rare to see in wild. in fact, after mating and laying the eggs, they will die within approximately 1 month. due to their short lifespan, they can be a very rare sight! so enjoy the video!! do you know other protandric species? comment below! 🐟 🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊 #oceanfact #oceanfactofficial #eel #berniseel #moray #sea  #animal #biology #biodiversity  #marinebiology #marinecreatures  #wildlife #wildanimals #wildlifephotography #facts #conservation #diving #freediving #ilovediving #underwater #underwaterphotography #didyouknow #oceanlife #stem

video: @kirstybertarelli of coconut c***s in the chagos archipelago ———————————————————————————
oceanfact: the coconut crab is the largest land living arthropod in the world! they can be found in areas in the southwest indian and pacific oceans. coconut c***s grow up to one meter (3.2 ft) in length and can weigh up to 4.5 kilograms (10 pounds). though they are land living c***s and cannot breathe under water, their larvae is developed in the water column. because this species has ten legs they are in the order decapoda; many decapoda species have a specific larval form called a zoea - a free swimming planktonic larvae. after 20-30 days the c***s develop to the intermediate stage and leave the water to seek shelter in a shell. once they reach young adulthood they bury themselves in damp sand or live in burrows while their own shell is growing. ———————————————————————————
there are tons of species that spend portions of their lives in the ocean - all the more reason to protect it!———————————————————————————

Feeling hungry? this sea otter know how you feel. as the heaviest members of the weasel family, sea otters eat approximately 25% of their weight in food each day to support their high metabolism.

#oceanfact the north pacific population of humpback whales makes long distance migrations. they range from winter breeding grounds in southern latitudes (hawaii, mexico, and southern asia) to northern feeding areas from california to alaska and russia where they spend the summer months. humpbacks show great fidelity to their feeding areas and british columbia is split into two separate regions. the southeast alaska/northern british columbia region is estimated to have a population of 3,000-5,000 whales, while the southern bc/washington population is approximately 200-400 whales. there also appears to be a correlation between feeding and breeding grounds. the majority of humpback whales feeding in northern bc appear to be wintering in hawaii. the southern bc whales have animals that have been re-sighted off mainland mexico, as well as hawaii.

Fun fact : dogface pufferfish

the dogface pufferfish is aptly named not only for it’s appearance but it’s behavior. rarely aggressive, this animal is best suited for a non-reef environment as it will eat crustaceans, corals and other invertebrate life. this fish generally has a random smattering of dark spots on a colored body ranging in colors from browns, grays, yellows and rare black, gold or orange. more than one of this species can be kept in an aquarium.
when frightened or distressed, pufferfish can inflate over two times it’s original size. purposely enticing this behavior will eventually cause illness and even death. provide plenty of live rock to keep teeth worn down or be sure to trim teeth as needed.

though shy and refusing food on initial introduction, it will become bold, if not spoiled. eventually it will beg for food just as well as any dog asking for table scraps. in the wild, pufferfish tend to be nocturnal hunters.
feed a varied diet consisting of large chunks of meaty foods. these foods include krill, raw table shrimp, squid, clam and mussel. it is also a good idea to occasionally supplement with some type of herbivore diet.

Fun fact : crown squirrelfish

did you know crown squirrelfish has spines which are venomous & can inflict a painful wound?
the crowned squirrelfish sargocentron diadema is a member of the sub family holocentridae. members of the sub family are known as squirrelfish and they are typically red and silver or white.

the crowned squirrelfish is a bright red color with white stripes running across it to the tail. the gill cover has a vertical stripe on it and there is a white line running above the lip.  the area ahead of the caudal peduncle is often a whitish color. they have a proportionally large eye and are nocturnal feeders. they grow up to 17 cm in length.

the crowned squirrelfish is found across the indian ocean and in the pacific as far across as tahiti. during the day they are seen in shoals under overhangs and caves to a depth of 30 meters.  the size of the shoal often depends on the size of the hiding place. they use lunging and noises made in the swim bladder to chase other fish out of their hiding spots. at night they leave their hiding spot and hunt for prey along the bottom.

spawning takes place into the water table and once the eggs hatch the young go into hiding. in tanzanian waters in the southern hemisphere large groups of several hundred adult crowned squirrelfish have been observed swimming in the open during the day, on several occasions. milling around two or three meters above the surface of the reef and not as reclusive they usually are. it is possible that this is related to mating.

Fun fact : snipe eel

the snipe eel, known to science as nemichthys scolopaceus, is a rather peculiar looking fish.

it has a long body, up to five feet in length, and resembles a long piece of ribbon or string with a large bulbous head at one end.the snipe eel has more vertebrae in its long body than any other animal on earth. its spine contains about 750 vertebrae. its body is so slender that it is actually 75 times as long as it is wide.

the snipe eel's upper and lower jaws are extremely long and curve away from each other at the tips. this means that they don't meet when the eel closes its mouth. these curved jaws help the eel to catch its food. the jaws are covered with tiny hooked teeth that help capture tiny shrimp and other crustaceans. as the eel swims along with its mouth open, tiny backward-pointing teeth snag the antenna of the shrimp.

the snipe eel has proportionally large eyes for its body size. these large eyes help it to gather what little light that manages to p*******e the darkness of the deep sea. the color of the bodyranges from dark brown to gray with fins that are nearly black.

very little is known about the reproductive habits of the snipe eel. what is known is that after the eggs are laid by the female, they are fertilized externally by the male. the eggs are buoyant and will float in the water until they hatch. once hatched, the tiny larvae are shaped like leaves. they will actually shrink in size somewhat before growing larger and becoming adults. it is believed that snipe eels are semelparous, meaning that they mate once and then die immediately. they are thought to have a life span in the wild of about ten years.

the snipe eel is a mid-water fish that is found in open waters at depths of between 300 and 6,000 feet (between 90 and 1,800 meters). snipe eels are found in shallower waters at higher latitudes and deeper waters at lower latitudes.

Fun fact : rabbitfish

did you know adult rabbitfish live in pairs?

rabbitfish, also known as spinefoot, is a saltwater fish that belongs to the rabbitfish family. there are 29 species of rabbitfish that can be found in the warm tropical waters of indo-pacific.

rabbitfish has elongated snout, large eyes, rabbit-like, small mouth (hence the name - rabbitfish) and oblong body. its pelvic, dorsal and a**l fins consist of stout spines and soft rays.

rabbitfish is able to change the color of the body during the night or when it is faced with danger and to blend with the colors of its environment (to become nearly invisible). spiny fins of rabbitfish are equipped with venomous glands. hardly detectable spines become prominent when rabbitfish are threatened. even though rabbitfish are not aggressive by nature, they do not hesitate to stab predators in self-defense. luckily, venom of rabbitfish is not life-threatening for humans.

adult rabbitfish live in pairs. males and females usually form couples when they reach length of 4 inches. pairs often last until one of the partners die.

p/s : rabbitfish can survive from 8 to 12 years in the captivity.

Fun fact : white spotted sea jelly.

did you know sea jelly do not have a brain?

instead, these ocean drifters have a ring of nerves called a nerve net, which transmits information about its surroundings throughout their body.

over 90% of their body is water, together with a gelatinous substance that gives them structure.

each white spotted sea jelly has four clumps of o**l arms with downward hanging appendages. on each arm are many small mouth openings that capture zooplankton as they filter the sea water. each white spotted sea jelly can filter more than 50 cubic meters of seawater every day.

being largely filter feeders, white spotted sea jellies do not generally use their venom to capture prey. their venom is very mild and do not pose a threat to human beings.

Fun fact : sea spider

did you know sea spiders are not true spiders, or even arachnids?

their traditional classification as chelicerates would put them closer to true spiders than to other well-known arthropod groups, such as insects or crustaceans.

the sea spider has a small, narrow body. it usually has four pairs of long, thin legs attached to the abdomen. attached to the head there are usually three other pairs of appendages, a pair called chelicerae, used for grasping food, a pair of sensory projections called palps, and a pair of egg-carrying legs (sometimes underdeveloped or absent in the female). the female lays round masses of eggs on the egg-carrying legs of the male, which carries the eggs until they hatch.

on top of its head, the sea spider has a knobby projection bearing two, three, or four simple eyes. the head ends in a snout with a s*****g mouth. sea spiders feed by s*****g the body juices of such marine animals as sea anemones, sponges, and sea squirts.

After a long day of sampling in the summer heat, many people might just want to go home and shower as soon as possible. but if you spend just a little bit of time looking at your sample under a microscope, you see all these amazing tiny creatures swimming around! and most of the time i don't even know what the heck they are so i start looking up. for me, that's where the real fun no.2 begins 😉 real fun no.1 is of course to go out there and collect them!
