Sticky sleeping bag

Trying to sleep on the reef is a dangerous game. The sea currents could carry your smell to potential predators whilst you're asleep. The parrot fish has come up with a fantastic way of preventing this in the shape of a mucousy sleeping bag. The Great Barrier Reef team managed to film this for the first time.
