Meet the sharks and rays that patrol Arabia's coral reefs for their prey, and the toxic fish that have perfected the art of disguise.
Arabia's coral reefs house some of nature's most impressive illusionists. Creatures that can pulsate with colour and transform in the blink of an eye.
Around a tiny chain of islands off the coast of Oman, the stage is set for one of natures greatest spectacle. Creatures journey from far and wide to join the feast, ocean travellers like Hawksbill turtles and sea birds. But no visitors more dramatic than the largest fish on earth the whale shark.
Its summer in the Gulf of Oman. The scorching hot Arabian sun heats the shallow waters to around 86 degrees. The warmth boosts the growth of algae across a vast coral reef, attracting thousands of hungry herbivores. It is the setting of a fish versus fish turf war. The reefs a challenging place to stay alive, let alone raise our family, so for the domino fish, the stakes are high!
The sea turtle is one of the oldest animals on Earth. But while they pre-date the dinosaurs, their place in today's world is sadly under threat.
