Avoid This Sea Creature when Diving

Marine biota characteristics which can be encountered by the divers

Diving under the sea is always tempting for most fans of marine life, feel the blue water, the silence inside, colorful aquatic plants with all life in the water. Truly enchanting!

But. Always there are things that need to be observed for the activities in the water could take place, a lot to be learned at any time by divers. Try to take some water you see in there, underwater biota that will be encountered at depth.

An activities of the dives were conducted by an diving expert, E Prasetyo while filming a documentary in Papua in the Expedition of Saireri with WWF Indonesia, as told by a tourist site, Kompas Travel, said, "When given the knowledge of diving, ocean animals actually does not attack aggressively. They do not necessarily attack. If they are disturbed then attacked aggressively."

Well, this situation needs to be vigilant on these animals, especially in the tropical marine environment, some marine animals need to be observed, so that we are safe in doing dives.

1. Sea eels. These animals basically very quiet, but if we continue to provoke, not to animals if sea eel can bite, E Prasetyo said.

2. Barracuda. They are not overly aggressive, but avoid the use of shiny objects, such as jewelry earrings, or necklace. Regarding it as food.

3. Sharks. They are predators. Although generally only eat small fish, because they are generally small toothed. There are only five species of predatory sharks that attack humans, especially when it smells blood, such as black tip shark and white tip shark in tropical waters.

They attacked solely because it was considered as prey or their food, for example, seals, penguins, or fish that swim with ease.

4. Jellyfish. They might look weak, this animal is quite dangerous and deadly, because it can sting anyone.

5. Lionfish. Do not be fooled by their appearance, also looks weak, but it can inject venom into your body! Stay away from these animals while in depth, because of high risk.

The dives are always in need of detailed preparation, and we are always encouraged to learn more about the many life under the sea. Dazzle, but kept a mystery.
