Animals Video

Mesmerising footage shows an exotic red fish that looks just like a flamenco dancer.

The beautiful video of the floating fish, called a Spanish dancer fish, was captured by diver Vitaly Bazarov, off the coast of the Gulf of Aqaba in the Red Sea.

As the fish drifts through the water, its vibrant red fins look just like a red dress twisting and turning in a dance.

Vitaly said: “It was a single dive, and I had already to prepared to go back to the surface when I saw a Spanish dancer.

“It’s a very beautiful mollusc, and usually divers find them at night and in the bottom of the ocean.

“I saw this creature during the day and in the shallow water for the first time.

“I was lucky that I had a video camera with me!

“The Red Sea is one of the best places for an underwater photographer, but to get the best shots it is important to dive alone.”
