Jonathan Bird's Blue World

Stars Of The Sea/The Real Nemo/Feeding Frenzy

Season 2, Episode 5 of 7

Stars of the Sea - At first glance, starfish, more properly called sea stars, aren't doing much of anything. But Jonathan's investigations reveal a slow-motion predator that hunts and attacks its prey. Traveling the world, Jonathan investigates sea stars from the tropics to the Antarctic and uses time-lapse photography to reveal an amazing complexity to the world of the sea star. The Real Nemo - Thanks to the Disney/Pixar movie Finding Nemo, virtually everyone has heard of the clownfish. Jonathan travels the Pacific to investigate the behavior of real clownfish. Even though they don't actually talk in real life, they are beautiful and fascinating fish to observe. Feeding Frenzy - Do shark feeding frenzies really exist? Will sharks turn into a bunch of cannibals if they start competing for food? Jonathan wants to find out, and travels to Micronesia for an experiment. You won't believe the fantastic result!
