Lady Tunakaimanu Feilakepa is renowned and greatly respected for her traditional cultural knowledge in Tonga and across the Pacific. For one week in November 2011 Mrs. Fielakepa visited the museum to share her memories, knowledge and passion for Tongan traditions.
This week we show movies taken at depths of 4 m and 2400 m. The first movie shows what may be the first footage ever taken of a Murray Cod guarding its eggs in a dam. The second movie shows a Threadfin Seasnail swimming down a deep rocky slope. As always there are also some great images. Thank you to everyone who contributed.
This week we show remarkable footage of hagfish using slime as a defence mechanism. These fishes are also active hunters. There are some great new images, plus the first sighting of 'the' undescribed anglerfish guarding its eggs.
