Deep Sea Creatures [National Geographic Documentary 2017 HD]
Deep Sea Creatures [National Geographic Documentary 2017 HD] The Deep sea creature refers to organisms that live below the photic zone of the ocean. These creatures must survive in extremely harsh conditions, such as hundreds of bars of pressure, small amounts of oxygen, very little food, no sunlight, and constant, extreme cold. Most creatures have to depend on food floating down from above. These creatures live in very demanding environments, such as the abyssal or hadal zones, which, being thousands of meters below the surface, are almost completely devoid of light. The water is between 3 and 10 degrees Celsius and has low oxygen levels. Due to the depth, the pressure is between 20 and 1,000 bars. Creatures that live hundreds or even thousands of meters deep in the ocean have adapted to the high pressure, lack of light, and other factors. The depths of the ocean are festooned with the most nightmarish creatures imaginable. You might think you’re safe, because these critters live thousands of feet down in a cold dark abyss, but the vampire squid, which looks like a nightmare umbrella, and the frilled shark—a literal living fossil—will live on in the recesses of your mind long after you’ve clicked away. Enjoy these deep sea horrors and try to have a relaxing day afterward. ► NOTE : I'm a big fan of National Geographic and I just collect the best parts of National Geographic. I do not make money from National Geographic's Video. Thanks You very much

Sharks : Scavengers of the Seas - Documentary
Before being an earthly paradise with enchanting colours, the lagoon of New-Caledonia is above all a paradise for sharks. Usually considered as fierce predators, sharks really are opportunistic scavengers. Scavengers that are not too picky when it comes to their menu: feathers, fins or fur, anything will do. Amongst the most striking scenes which punctuate this documentary filmed for four years in New Caledonia, is the never-seen-before sequence of the planet’s greatest animal, a weakened blue whale, attacked and cleaned up by hordes of sharks from the surface down to the abyss. High quality images and a dramatic backdrop soundtrack plunge us into the shark's world.

Ocean (Be a predator) Documentary HD
Imagine you are flying above the African savannah, swimming under Antarctic ice, climbing up Amazon trees and diving the Marianna abyss. Imagine you can suddenly see in the night, hear ultra-sounds, decode radar waves and detect electric fields. 1,2,3... you are a lion or else a dolphin, a bear or a vulture! Using the latest technologies of image treatment and stock footage from Saint Thomas Productions’ extensive film library, this wildlife series presents an insider’s view of the predators’ life and senses. Both spectacular and entertaining, the series gives a modern outlook on nature and its most spectacular ambassadors : predators. Each episode depicts a predator and its hunting techniques in its natural habitat. Following the principles of a food chain, the programmes jump from one animal to the next, from hunter to prey. Oceans Sharks or Dolphins, two predators, two morphological responses to the same environmental constraints. Which one is the better adapted to survive ? An underwater camera passes swiftly over a coralline sandbank then stops on a black and image of a razor fish lurking in wait. Several bottlenose dolphins forage in this location. The mothers use echolocation to spot razor fish and teach their young how to master this sophisticated sense that we don’t know. Other bottlenose dolphins have developed yet another spectacular application of this sense: they hunt grey mullets in the muddy mangrove waters and strand them on the banks. Other dolphin species use this natural sonar in different ways : some descend in group in the abyss to locate anchovy shoals. They force them up to a lesser depth where they will get stuck by the natural frontier of the water surface. But how is it possible to hunt in the darkness of the abyss without this super-sense? Seals have found an answer to this question, thanks to their vibrissae. These whiskers can detect the movements of prey in total darkness. But what can really be seen with these whiskers and how do they use them? That is what a young sea lioness in Patagonia and a grey seal in Scotland learn… before they suddenly end up in the jaws of a super-predator, a killer whale. How can they resist? To rule over the oceans, this animal an array of senses, a hunting culture transmitted from one generation to the next and an adaptability to changing environmental conditions.

Maldives: diving paradise (full documentary)
The Maldives Islands are synonymous with diving. Its capricious geography consists of over 1,200 small coral islands, not all are surveyed and some emerge or disappear, with earthquakes of the sea. The Maldives offer the professional diver and to tourists that plunge for the first time, an evolving paradise. There are more than 4000 species of fish on coral reefs. Only in the Maldives are over 900. Many tourists visit the Maldives for withdraw from the world. The friendliness of its waters and species diversity invites to discover an exuberant underwater world. The novel diver is usually terrified with the mere presence of the shark. Our panic may upset them. But if you simply observe their movements, he will be at our fingertips. The legend of man-eating shark, has been disproved. Most only feeds on mollusks and small fish, but something about their appearance (as an ancestral fear of man) still frightening us. Most species are escondidizas during the day. They take advantage of the night to hunt, from coral crevices where they hide their long bodies, which in the larger species can reach three meters. There are so many species that live on the reef, where is given the disconcerting fact that hunters prey and swim very close to each other. The shark is the lord of the sea. For the diver, swimming beside her is like winning their respect. Some experienced divers roam the oceans in order to boast of being with all shark species. Tourism promotion has enabled the Maldives to develop its economy, although there are still large gaps in their population. Its diffusion as a privileged place of rest and exotic beaches has paralleled promoting diving in the reefs. Thousands of divers immerse every year in its waters. In our world, saturated with artificial images, the ocean offers us an endless entertainment.

National Geographic Documentary Wild - Ocean Voyager Whale - BBC Documentary History
Documentary Natural National Geographic Documentary Wild - Ocean Voyager Whale The Biggest Sea Creatures - BBC Documentary History Whale s://goo.gl/l1zgt7 Whales are a widely distributed and diverse group of fully aquatic placental marine mammals. They are an informal grouping within the infraorder Cetacea, usually excluding dolphins and porpoises. Whales, dolphins and porpoises belong to the order Cetartiodactyla with even-toed ungulates and their closest living relatives are the hippopotamuses, having diverged about 40 million years ago. The two parvorders of whales, baleen whales (Mysticeti) and toothed whales (Odontoceti), are thought to have split apart around 34 million years ago. The whales comprise eight extant families: Balaenopteridae (the rorquals), Balaenidae (right whales), Cetotheriidae (the pygmy right whale), Eschrichtiidae (the gray whale), Monodontidae (belugas and narwhals), Physeteridae (the sperm whale), Kogiidae (the dwarf and pygmy sperm whale), and Ziphiidae (the beaked whales). Whales are creatures of the open ocean; they feed, mate, give birth, suckle and raise their young at sea. So extreme is their adaptation to life underwater that they are unable to survive on land. Whales range in size from the 2.6 metres (8.5 ft) and 135 kilograms (298 lb) dwarf sperm whale to the 29.9 metres (98 ft) and 190 metric tons (210 short tons) blue whale, which is the largest creature that has ever lived. The sperm whale is the largest toothed predator on earth. Several species exhibit sexual dimorphism, in that the females are larger than males. Baleen whales have no teeth; instead they have plates of baleen, a fringe-like structure used to expel water while retaining the krill and plankton which they feed on. They use their throat pleats to expand the mouth to take in huge gulps of water.

Deep Ocean: Lost World Of The Pacific Part 1 - David Attenborough Documentary HD
An underwater adventure in search of living fossils. The island of New Guinea in the Pacific Ocean sits on the equator, where immediately next to a richly-colored coral reef, a sharp underwater cliff drops down to 1,000 meters. A long-awaited exploration down the little known depths of this tropical sea is finally about to start. NHK has teamed up with eminent marine biologist Mark Erdmann, discoverer of the coelacanth in Indonesia. The spherical transparent submarine, which successfully captured the world’s first moving images of a giant squid in its natural habitat, is used as the team encounters true living fossil species one after another. During their last dive, in the darkest depths of caves in the deep-sea cliff, the crew encounters a huge, unknown exotic fish… Narrated by Sir David Attenborough. For this shoot, the submarine was equipped with a cutting-edge 4K camera, for pristine images. Join the film crew on an exciting adventure into a deep sea never before seen by humans, captured on six cameras shooting multi-angles, creating a breath-taking underwater documentary.

► Vicious Beauties - The Secret World Of The Jellyfish (Full Documentary, HD)
The family of the jellyfish or medusae are not only the most venomous ocean inhabitants but also some of the deepest divers. Medusae have been found as deep as 8.300 meters. Their existence is paramount to the oceans. Many of the large migrations of fish and mammals would not be possible without the existence of jellies. They are a crucial part of the food chain, many fish feed on jellies and in turn mammals or larger migratory predators feed on fish.The scientist Gerhard Jarms of the Zoological Institute of the University of Hamburg takes us on a journey into the exotic world of jellyfish. He is one of the most renowned medusae scientists in the world. Our expedition begins in the northern Atlantic where we will find the mysterious periphylla. We will continue on to the Azores in the Atlantic. There we will search for the XY jellies that seek shelter in caves in rough seas. In the Pacific we will swim with the jellies in the famous Jellyfish Lake and last but not least we will explore some of the world's most beautiful coral reefs of western Papua. And at the very end danger lurks around every corner as we set out to search off Australia's coast for the fatal sea wasp- one of the most poisonous ocean inhabitants.

The Lost World Underwater - Documentary HD #Advexon
The Lost World - Documentary HD Hidden below the waves off the east coast of Australia, scientists have discovered a 'lost world' of epic volcanic peaks buried under the Tasman Sea, never before seen with human eyes. This range of volcanic seamounts - underwater mountains formed by ancient, extinct volcanoes - towers some 3 kilometres (1.9 miles) above the ocean floor. Despite the immense height, it has never been previously detected, since even the highest peaks are concealed 2 km (1.2 miles) below the surface of the South Pacific. "Our multibeam mapping has revealed in vibrant detail, for the first time, a chain of volcanic seamounts rising up from an abyssal plain about 5,000 metres (16,400 ft) deep," explains marine geoscientist Tara Martin from Australia's CSIRO. "This is a very diverse landscape and will undoubtedly be a biological hotspot that supports a dazzling array of marine life." he researchers say the volcanic terrain varies in size and shape, including both sharp peaks and broad plateaus punctuated with smaller conical hills. The discovery, made aboard the CSIRO research vessel Investigator, occurred during a voyage led by scientists from Australian National University. The team was examining the relationship between nutrient levels and phytoplankton behaviour in the East Australian Current when their seafloor mapping detected the dramatic, uncharted contours, produced in another era of history. "We're pretty sure that these seamounts were related to the break up of Australia and Antarctica. It was about 30 million years ago," Martin explained to ABC News. "As Australia and Antarctica and Tasmania all broke up, a big hotspot came in under the earth's crust, made these volcanoes, and then helped the Earth's crust break so that all of those areas could start to drift apart." Future research is already being planned to study the terrain and its marine life later in the Australian summer, but already the researchers think these volcanic valleys might serve as a kind of navigational hub for creatures who live in the deep. * Subscribe for more Scientific & Technological Videos * Like & Share * go to our website http://www.advexon.com * Share your ideas and comment

Australia. The Great White Shark | Full Documentary
We found the great white shark in the waters of the south coast of Australia, a crowded fed by waters from the Antarctic ice continent life. With its two-ton, this great wild predator prowls the Australian beaches in search of its most coveted prey, the sea lion. We dive on the Australian continent to see the beautiful and varied creatures that hide in its waters feared of the white shark. ▶ SUBSCRIBE! http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc Full Documentaries every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday! ▶ Documentary "Australia. The Great White Shark " http://pdoc.es/AustraliaENG-PL The waters that bathe the south of Australia are a link preserved from a former union whit the Antarctic. For the sharks, this is a region of plenty. The basic design of their bodies is 300 million years old, and is literally perfect. But only one of them is called Death. Beyond the reef lies the kingdom of the great killer, the vast blue, the cold waters which are tinged with red when hunger demands. The great white shark, two thousand kilos of savage strength at the service of a mouth. A prodigious animal which, after hundreds of year of blind terror, we are now learning to admire. As we move further up the west coast of Australia, and approach the Tropic of Capricorn, corals are more in evidence, and start to form reefs. The coral reef is a very different ecosystem from that of the cold waters of the south. The coral reef is like a gigantic self-contained organism, in which energy passes from one layer to the next, with just two essential ingredients - the sun and the sea. The corals are specialists in poor waters like these, provided they are clear. We arrive in the dominions of the great white shark, the dark blue waters. And here, a tragedy, repeated every year, is about to occur. The sea lions sense that the breeding season is approaching. Along the coast of southern Australia and Tasmania, they begin to gather near suitable places, playing and swimming with their characteristic skill. The great white sharks like nothing better than a fresh fur seal – warm red meat, covered in delicious fat, clean and easy to digest. But the great white shark comes to its annual rendezvous with the seal cubs. All it need do is approach the colony, and wait for its chance. This individual is eight metres of sheer fury, and almost two thousand kilos of expert hunter. Though it is a fish, its blood is ten degrees centigrade warmer than the surrounding water, so its muscles perform better in attack. It detects the electrical fields generated by its victims, and it is equipped with a system of navigation based on the earth’s magnetic field. Its sense of smell is infallible, and the muscles around its eyes are warmer than the others, to give it optimum sight. The black legend of the white shark has been forged on the basis of exaggerations. Its fame as a monster, devourer of men, is far in excess of the reality. But, for decades, it has served as an excuse for uncontrolled fishing. Their impressive appearance made them the most sought after of all fisherman’s trophies. In reality, attacks on humans are rare and, strangely, many of the victims survive. Like these three mutilated men, who know spend their lives killing the white sharks that attacked them. The white shark possesses the curiosity of all prowlers. We now know that the white shark only attacks men by mistake or in self-defence, when in these cloudy waters it mistakes them for its normal prey, the sea lions. It is so elusive that, in seas where there are now hardly any seals, and the white sharks eat other prey that don’t resemble man, not only are there no attacks, but people don’t even suspect they exist. This fantastic animal is a symbol of the sea in which it lives, a sea which we are threatening, a much more deadly threat than the great white. It is relatively easy to defend the great white, but there are 350 other species of shark increasingly threatened over-fishing, with virtually no one paying any attention to their plight. No one knows how many answers lie in these waters, but one thing is certain, in the deep, vast blue, in the salty abyss in which all these creatures live, only one is king. Carcharodon carcharias, the white death. ▶SUBSCRIBE | http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc ▶FULL DOCUMENTARIES | http://planetdoc.tv/playlist-full-documentaries ▶ WILD ANIMALS DOCUMENTARIES | http://planetdoc.tv/playlist-wild-animals ▶FACEBOOK | http://bit.ly/FBPDoc ▶TWITTER | http://bit.ly/TwPDoc ▶TUMBLR | http://bit.ly/TbPlDoc Thumbnail By Elias Levy (Great White Shark) [CC BY 2.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0)], via Wikimedia Commons

National Geographic Documentary - Ocean Monsters Secret Life in Ocean - BBC Wildlife Animals
National Geographic Documentary - Ocean Monsters Secret Life in Ocean - BBC Wildlife Animals Sea monsters are beings from folklore believed to dwell in the sea and often imagined to be of immense size. Marine monsters can take many forms, including sea dragons, sea serpents, or multi-armed beasts. They can be slimy and scaly and are often pictured threatening ships or spouting jets of water.[citation needed] The definition of a "monster" is subjective, and some sea monsters may have been based on scientifically accepted creatures such as whales and types of giant and colossal squid.

► Adventure Ocean Quest - 24 Hours on the Reef (FULL Documentary)
Fakarava Atoll is a true underwater paradise that stuns with its sheer diversity of marine life and particularly high populations of manta rays, grey reef sharks and sea turtles. It is one of the only places where big marine animals are found in such dense numbers. Its diversity and richness of wildlife is so unique that Fakarava is now a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. But the survival chances of these colourful coral reefs are looking very bleak. They may be the biggest living structures on Earth, but they are dying 4 times more quickly than tropical rainforests. Three quarters of all coral reefs are under threat, and all of them could disappear within the next 50 – 100 years. Prof. Serge Plane from the French research center on Moorea “Criobe” is trying to piece together the interrelationships of coral reef dwellers in order to better understand why they are so sensitive to environmental change, and how they could be protected in the future. This ecosystem is so fragile and sensitive to change that once one link in a coral reef’s chain of life has been removed, it can have dire consequences for the entire reef. Working out how this chain works, and what makes this ecosystem so unique is instrumental to the quest of preserving it. Prof. Serge Plane has specialised in a very particular aspect of relationships amongst reef organisms: communication. He wants to find out how the animals communicate and how this serves their quest to survive. He has already accumulated a wealth of underwater recordings of sounds in a coral reef. But his normal approach requires him to place hydrophones in strategic static positions across the reef. It is an inefficient, limiting and labour-intensive approach. Frederic is able to increase the efficiency and success of Prof Serge Plane by approaching animals directly and respond to their behaviours. The scientist’s current recordings do not follow animals during different behaviours, so being able to selectively record behaviours could be an eye-opener for this type of research. As a noiseless freediver, Frederic is able to trigger certain behaviours and associated sounds by being in the water with the animals without influencing them with cumbersome diving equipment. For example, he is able to record alarm sounds by giving sudden chase to specific fish. So far, it has not been possible for Prof Serge Plane to record behaviour as specific as this because conventional diving gear makes too much noise. The team dives at every time of day and night at a specific spot on the atoll to observe different species during their own activity cycles, and to see how life on the atoll transforms at different times. But again, Christian and Frederic have to remain cautious and plan their expedition meticulously. Again, they make the most of local knowledge to prepare themselves for the task in hand. Polynesian mythology is full of marine life – it plays a very important role in local culture. Manta rays, for example, stand for freedom, while sea turtles personify wisdom and long life. Frederic and Christian meet Maitata, a pearldiver from this island. Few people could tell the team more about the local wildlife from the point of view of Polynesian peoples. Once again, the stories this experienced local man has to offer help Christian and Frederic to build a better and more accurate picture of what lurks beneath the waves in this area. Over their time working, Frederic and Christian repeat their dives on the atoll at different times of day and night. The night-dives can be a bizarre experience with an edge of the otherworldly about it. And the sharply reduced visibility does make these excursions particularly dangerous for Frederic – it would be all too easy to loose orientation and as a result risk his life. The combination of their observations of the reef at different times of day and night and the recordings of reef sounds prove invaluable to Prof. Serge Planes research. And as he builds up his database of recordings, the interrelationships of coral reef organisms becomes clearer. Frederic and Christian’ observations have allowed fascinating insights into the complex web of connections of this finely tuned ecosystem. Ultimately, it may be this kind of research that could help to preserve the world’s coral reefs well into the future.
