Featured creature relationships are: cleaning stations, coral and algae, Humpback whales and barnacles, Manta Rays and Remora.
Mike Barrowman strikes again. This time his antics take him to learn about Symbiotic Relationships. He tries to woo Sharon, but to no avail. Instead, Sharon, Renea and Andrew teach Mike and the viewers all about the symbiotic relationships many creatures in the sea have with each other. They explore what relationships coral and algae have, Trumpet fish and Cleaning Gobies, the Manta Ray and the Remora and many more. You will learn all about Protective symbiosis, Parasitic symbiosis, what cleaning stations are and also what shadow feeding is.
As usual with this video series the photography is excellent. They have many great shots of underwater activities for us to see. One part that I like a lot is the “Did you Know” information they have. I think it gives kids interesting tidbits of information they can use. Plus, they have a review section at the end of the video. Overall, another great journey for kids to make as they find out what is going on under the waves.
