    Whale Shark- I really really really want to dive with these gentle giants someday...

    Go to South Africa,specifically the area called the ring of death and just watch great white sharks jump out of the water. Not get in the water but just see them jump like Shamu.

    I need a Black & White canvas of this one... does anyone know the name of the photographer pleeease?!

    not something you want to see when you go in the ocean...

    The Sawfish, a ray, is an Elasmobranch and like its fellow group members (sharks, rays and skates) has a cartilaginous skeleton. It uses its saw (characterized by toothlike structures called denticles) for defense and for feeding by slashing its saw from side to side along the ocean floor, dislodging prey and likely by slashing through schools of fish, stunning or injuring them before consuming them via the ventral mouth. The largest species has been documented to weigh in at over 5,000lbs. Sawfish were revered by the Aztecs as "Earth Monsters". #Sawfish #Marine_Biology
