The footage captured for 'Life' is both breathtakingly beautiful and wildly informative. Accompanied by Oprah Winfrey's commanding narration, we're given a mind-blowing glimpse of nature -- including everything from real-life Nemos (clownfish) dutifully guarding their eggs to humpback whales in fierce battle over a female.

I made a couple of revisions.

These clips from "Life" are spectacular! I learned something from every clip I watched. I loved learning that sea snakes enjoy being stroked down their stomachs (not sure I'd do it, though) and that there are creeping vines with adhesive pads that remind me of fingertips. This is the first time I have ever seen a hummingbird mating ritual. Gosh, the male Spatula Tailed hummingbird is beautiful! And my absolute favorite--male Clown Anemone fish waiting in wings for their shot at romance. My family would absolutely enjoy this!

I learned that the Giant Bullfrog is also an engineer who builds channels for the tadpoles to save them from suffocation

I did not realize that if clownfish stay near tentacles, they will be safe from predators

Clownfish dads have nesting duties turnabout in caring for and raising fish for the seven days after hitched to a rock. So the division of labor is the oppposite in this underwater world. In fact, the female is so much in charge, as Oprah narrates, that if the male's efforts don't live up to her standards, he's out. There's always another waiting in the wings to move up the ladder.

Seadragon dads carry fertilized eggs on their tails. Now that's child support! =)

Clown fish work in pairs to care for eggs laid in anemones that hatch in seven days .

I didn't read the rules correctly the first time and therefore didn't watch one of the featured videos first. So, now I have and this is what I have learned again from the featured video...that the Basilisk Lizard is nicknamed the Jesus Christ lizard because it appears to walk on water for up to 100 feet which allows it to escape from danger.
