A Group of Industrious Clownfish Work Together to Move a Coconut Shell Across the Ocean Floor

Clownfish Teamwork

In a stunning clip from the BBC Earth series Blue Planet II, a group of beautiful and industrious clownfish banded together to move a halved coconut shell across the ocean floor in order to provide a safe comfortable place for a female to lay her eggs.

In this exclusive clip from this Sunday’s Blue Planet II episode, we see Clownfish working together to move a coconut shell, which they will use to lay eggs on. This behaviour has never been filmed before.
