Saturation: Colorful Marine Creatures from Indonesia & The Philippines

A flame scallop (Ctenoides ales), a Harlequin Shrimp (Hymenocera picta), and a candy crab (Hoplophrys oatesi) begin this incredible video of colorful crabs, fish, nudibranchs, seahorses, shrimp, and tunicates. They were all filmed by underwater videographer Nick Hope in the Lembeh Strait in Indonesia and Anilao in The Philippines.

Hope annotated each species in the closed captioning. Click the CC button to see the subtitled name of every colorful creature.
