Molluscs (mollusks, Mollusca) including cowries, sea slugs (in particular, nudibranchs) and giant clams. Part 14 of my DVD, "Reef Life of the Andaman", available at

The first category of molluscs we look at is cowries in the family Cypraeidae, which is in the class gastropods (Gastropoda). Cowries have a pretty, glossy shell which can be covered by their bilobed mantle. The mole cowry (Talparia talpa) and tiger cowrie (Cypraea tigris) are two common species that feature from the Mergui Archipelago in Burma (Myanmar).

We then take a look at some of the sea slugs (opisthobranchs, Opisthobranchia) to be found in the Andaman Sea. The area has many pretty nudibranchs (Nudibranchia) and amongst others we find a Chromodoris geminus at Richelieu Rock, north of the Similan Islands in Thailand, and a group of 3 Chromodoris annulata at Black Rock in the Mergui Archipelago. Wart slugs in the family Phyllidiidae are also represented, particularly those of the Phyllidia genus such as Phyllidia varicosa.

Finally we take a look at the fluted giant clam, Trdacna squamosa, which is a large bivalve (bivalvia) found on many Thailand dive sites.

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 molluscs in English, German or Dutch, along with dive site names.

Thanks to Mark Ellison for the first music track, "Hidden Depths", and to Kevin MacCleod ( for the second music track, "Deliberate Thought".

La Doux de Coly

"Mucky Secrets" is a nature documentary about the marine life of the Lembeh Strait at the heart of the Coral Triangle off north Sulawesi in Indonesia. The Lembeh Strait is a popular scuba diving destination, famed for its excellent "muck diving". A huge diversity of weird and wonderful 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, marine biology students and anybody interested in the underwater world. 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, along with the dive site names.
