Clownfish eggs are adorable

AvatarBy Leonard Ho 3 years agoNo Comments

This is lovely footage shot by Nick Hope of a pair of saddleback clownfish (Amphiprion polymnus) tending to their eggs, fanning them to keep them clean and well oxygenated.  The nest is laid below a giant Stichodactyla mertensii carpet anemone in the Philippines.

Look at all those tiny eyes peering into the outside world from within their eggs.
