It it believed that life on Earth originated at volcanic hot springs. White smokers and black smokers still exist today, mostly in the deep sea.
In a few places on this planet, volcanic hot springs are within the reach of scuba divers. Like the ones in the deep sea, they are an important habitat and attract a universe of marine life, often highly camouflaged or extremely tiny.
Dive into a world of fish that look like sponges, crabs that decorate themselves with anemones, mysterious ornate ghost pipefish and more critters of the deep.
All of the footage in this short film has been filmed around an underwater hot spring in Sulawesi, Indonesia.
