SPONGEBOB Squarepants might live in a pineapple under the sea but this family of clownfish have created their very own coconut home.
A sneak-peak of the next Blue Planet II episode reveals how the clever fish work in perfect unison to flip and roll a would-be seafloor house that’s three times their height.
In the clip, a male clownfish spots a coconut shell resting on the ocean floor, several feet from his anemone home.
Giving it a nudge, he tries to grip on to the shell’s fibres with his mouth, to no avail.
Spotting his struggles, the fishes’ female mate joins in along with their young to help roll it back to their sea-bed plot.
The male adjusts the anemone tentacles and tucks in the coconut shell, allowing a safe nursery for the female to lay her eggs.
It’s just one of the incredible moments captured by cameramen who have painstakingly travelled the oceans to capture animals in their natural habitat.
The show has become the most watched TV show of 2017 so far.
It’s no surprise, as it captures some of the most beautiful – and terrifying – aspects of the natural world.
Last week, Blue Planet II viewers were left terrified by “horror movie” scenes.
Many of those who tuned into episode two, The Deep, took to Twitter in panic over its inclusion of a fish with a transparent head and a cannibal giant squid.
Fanged fish, a blood-dripping feeding frenzy and an eel contorting itself in pain after being poisoned by a lake shocked viewers.
Those watching wouldn’t have been half as fearful as the people tasked with filming the show, however.

Producers recently told how they feared for their lives when attacked by seven 20 foot sharks during filming.
For those ready for another piece of the action, the next episode will air on BBC One on Sunday at 8pm.

THE BBC has been ridiculed for adding exaggerated sound effects on Blue Planet II.
Fans blown away by the nature show’s visuals called the underwater noises “ridiculous”.
They included a clam whacked against coral by a tuskfish, and a transgenger kobudai fish roaring as it fought.
A loud munch was also heard as a sea urchin bit into kelp, while others whooshed and squelched.
Some 10.6million tuned in on Sunday night for the return of the BBC1 show narrated by Sir David Attenborough.
Song Mason wrote online: “Loving Blue Planet but the sound design is ridiculous. Fish do not roar like lions.”
John George Marks added: “Only downside to the amazing Blue Planet is those awful sound effects! Urgh! Please stop with these 1980s effects!”
Bill Pound said: “Why do we have to suffer the ubiquitous music and sound effects? No need. Nature doesn’t.”
Matthew Hosier asked: “With so much attention to visual accuracy why spoil it?”
However, the show’s executive producer James Honeyborne insisted they were vital.
He said: “They help convey the experience of ‘being there’ that is important for an immersive TV experience.”
