Alien Reefs [Coral Documentary] | Real Wild 4.5

Coral reefs are some of the richest hotspots of biodiversity on the planet. The warm water reefs of the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea are well know, but they don't only occur in warm waters. In some of the oceans coldest, darkest depths they are thriving. The deep water reefs are formed by icebergs as they slide across the sea bed, leaving behind perfect foundations for coral to build upon. Hidden from view, they criss cross the planet from the deep water tropics to the freezing Arctic. Some have never been explored by humans. Underwater cameramen have ventured down to the pitch blackness to find life thriving. In this one hour HD special, our team will enter this alien environment. And discover a strange, hidden world abundant with life, from the weird to the wonderful.

It's helped me, with my understanding of coral reefs
One "target" for the team to investigate, is the recently found deep sea coarl reef, at the mouth of the Amazon River - the reef, is several 10's of miles off shore, and to deep to dive with tanks - submarine required.

I only just found your channel about a week ago and I've been glued to my screen ever since. Great footage, no hysterical commentary, just a nice slow pace of information and wonder. Thanks for all your postings and you have a new subscriber.

Beautiful footage, very interesting - except - Corals are not related to seastars and sea urchins! Corals and anemones belong to the Phylum Cnidaria, and are closely related, both are in Class Anthozoa. Seastars and sea urchins are in the Phylum Echinodermata. In fact, these phyla (Cnidaria and Echinodermata), or animal groups, are very distantly related. And yes, I am a biology professor and marine biologist.

Great documentary, however one correction. Corals are actually closely related to Jellyfish and are Cnidarians not closely related to Starfish and Sea urchins (Echinoderms).

11:15 I’m pretty sure it enjoys the parasites being eaten.

As soon as they reach the surface, they "accidentally" snag the "2" fishing lines. But now they're going to study it. an accident? I think NOT! Liars
