    Congratulations Chrissy. BTW I was watching a series of DVD's (the shape of life) that we use in teaching and in the mollusc section I came across a familiar name, well done!!!

    Wow- "the shape of life" was filmed a long long time ago- only a month into my first trip ever to Indonesia. Interesting background for that show- when we backroll off the boat for a night dive, the topside shot is on the island of Bunaken, while the UW footage is in Lembeh, 2 hr away. Filming almost got cut short when thieves boarded our support dinghy in the middle of the night and silently stole all dive gear and UW lighting equipment. Luckily the boat owner is well connected and we got out stuff back the next day (and the thieves went to jail).

    still a good series, we use it in our undergrad marine invert paper! Love how you can bamboozle the audience on location in these things, "Octopus Garden" is filmed in some VERY different locations round NZ, but is theoretically following one octopus through it's life!
