An Excellent Disney Nature Documentary
21 May 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

A Walt Disney TRUE-LIFE ADVENTURE.

The MYSTERIES OF THE DEEP are many and strange. This excellent little film, which focuses on a patch of coral reef, showcases some of the more peculiar habits of its denizens. The constant drive to eat or be eaten is played out by creatures beautiful & bizarre. Highlight: the thieving antics of the jawfish.

`This is one of a series of TRUE-LIFE ADVENTURES presenting strange facts about the world we live in. These films are photographed in their natural settings and are completely authentic, unstaged and unrehearsed.' Winston Hibler is the narrator.
