Hide the Scorpion and numerous outgrowths, spikes and leathery tentacles that transforms her into one of the stones is covered with marine vegetation. Therefore, it is difficult to notice, and she relies on his “invisible” presence that floats (or rather, flies away like a bullet from a gun!) only if you approach it closely. Sometimes you can even touch – but this is exactly what not to do – that’s enough! Interesting, lying on the surface of the water and breathing through a tube, watch the Scorpion fish hunting…

No one else harmful and dangerous in the Black sea, there is no stingrays, no man eating sharks or Portuguese ships or toothy Moray eels. Black sea only – usually no more than a meter in length, is afraid of people and rarely comes to shore, holding the cold water of the deep.

There were reports that in the last century in the Black sea swam, and other major representatives of the Atlantic-Mediterranean fish fauna; to become settled, these fish can’t do it here. So, to meet a shark near the beach in Sochi, or diving in the Crimea is quite incredible. When meeting with Katran don’t be afraid, be confident in their abilities and their superiority. Normally black shark encountered while diving or hunting in the depths. For this reason, your composure is very important, because you are not breathing on their own, and with the help of special devices for underwater breathing and communication with them, keep them functioning for you is vital. Imagine that you saw a regular fish that calmly swims and does not have any claims to you. Katran never attack divers or swimmers! He cannot handle them and General people for them is not interesting (not tasty or what?). Remember this!

No need to imagine Central scenes from the movies “Jaws” or “White death” – it is not about the Black sea.
