Large reef shark cruises close to divers looking for food

Caribbean Reef Sharks are generally not aggressive or dangerous to divers, but the appearance of a nine foot long beast made of muscle and teeth can be unnerving to even the most seasoned of divers. This group of scuba divers was on a wall dive near the famous Blue Hole in Belize. The current in this location carries divers along slowly as they explore a vertical coral face on a drop that plummets thousands of feet straight down. The ocean life is spectacular and varied. Fish thrive here and people are likely see eels and turtles as well. A more rare sight is the Reef Shark but sightings are becoming more common here as water temperature slowly increases and food in other areas of the ocean declines. These sharks are surprisingly unafraid of the divers, even swimming in between and around them. None of their behavior suggests that the divers are in danger but the close contact is concerning. It does not take much to change curiosity to aggression because sharks are always hungry and always willing to compete for food. These divers were not the only group in the water and it became apparent after the dive that the group ahead was spearing lionfish and actually feeding the sharks. This practice is highly inadvisable because it encourages sharks to come too close to humans. It is more likely that a bite would occur by accident than intentionally, but blood in the water would trigger a feeding frenzy. There were other Reef Sharks nearby and two large Bull Sharks made a few passes as well. Bull Sharks are much more aggressive and unpredictable than Caribbean Reef Sharks. In this case, the divers continued their dive but they remained vertical, tried to face the sharks as much as possible and they closed their group in to minimize the risk. This is a good example of divers making unwise choices that indirectly put others, and even the sharks, at risk.

Bizarre remora fish tries to latch onto GoPro camera53s

Bizarre remora fish tries to latch onto GoPro camera

Remoras are a very bizarre fish. They are equipped with a suction plate on the top of their head that allows them to attach to turtles, sharks, rays or any large creature. These suckers are actually highly adapted fins. They are not parasites and they do not feed off the host. They are merely lazy fish that attach so they do not have to exert themselves by swimming. The benefit to following the larger creatures believed to be that the remora is able to feed off the scraps of food that are created during feeding. More recent research actually shows that remoras feed more on the feces of the larger animals and not as much on the food scraps. Remoras are also offered a degree of protection while attached to a large predator or large sea turtle. They don't have to exert energy in swimming or by actively forcing water over their gills. Remoras are designed to swim under larger creatures and the top of their bodies is flattened to make this work. But they will often attach to the top or side of other creatures which requires them to swim upside down. The remora is very capable of swimming freely in any orientation and they are agile enough to move rapidly around their host as needed. In the case of sea turtles, the remoras quickly flip around to the top of the shell when the turtle rests on the bottom. Remaining under the turtle would pin the remora against the coral. There are actually some benefits for the host creature in this arrangement as the remoras dislodge external parasites and dead skin from their surface as they move around. Remoras are always on the lookout for a new host and will often investigate divers. Large rays and turtles are sometimes annoyed by the remoras and are believed to swim close to divers or other creatures in an effort to tempt the remoras off of them with a better option. In this case, the remora eagerly swims at the diver with the camera but obviously decides that the GoPro is not big enough or suitable and he goes right back to the turtle. It is very interesting to see how the fish flips over in the process. A little known fact about remoras is that some fishermen have been using them to harvest turtles. The fishermen catch remoras and then hook them by the tail. They release the remoras when they sight a turtle and wait for them to attach. The fishermen are then able to haul the turtle into the boat. In the case of larger turtles, the remoras sucker is strong enough to haul the turtle to the side of the boat to allow the turtle to be harpooned. The remora is a very unique fish with fascinating adaptations. They grow to a length of approximately 3 feet and are seemingly everywhere in the ocean where large creatures are found.

Kayakers Find Themselves In Midst Of Orca Feeding Frenzy

As far as Orca's go, for those of us who happen to live close to the shore or even visit over the summer, we've been told to always keep an eye out for all the dangers that the big blue has to offer. Not to go fire off into the ocean due to deep waters and all mystery that might hide within. Especially stay away from any big fish and never, ever, do you go in the water if you see something that has a huge fin on its back. For some of us however, it is the urge to get close up and personal with the threat in the hope to achieve great rush and adrenaline and feel more alive then ever. These people are usually the ones that you see on TV possibly under the accident part of the show or even sometimes under the hero's list. There is really no telling what is going to happen once you actually get this close to such a powerful being such as the Orca. However, aside of all the fact and dangers these guys had no idea that such a harmless kayak ride would reel them into such an extreme situation. A heavy does of nature is all around as these two people kayak their way into an Orca feeding frenzy. Just wait for the surprise cameo at the end!

In This Inspiring Pageant, Young Women Show Off Their Talents As Leaders!

The Ivy Girl Academy is a leadership training program for teenage girls in South Jordan, Utah, and it culminates with a pageant that's a little different from the typical kind of beauty contest. At the Ivy Girl pageants, the contestants showcase leadership skills that they've developed over the course of their time with the Academy. Leading up to the pageant is a four-month intensive program consisting of 30 hours of service, character-building challenges, and mentorship of younger Ivy Girls through community clubs. "We want girls to certify in leadership from the Ivy Girl Academy," says founder Jessie Funk. The focus of the Ivy Girl Academy is growth and the cultivation of confidence and leadership skills. Only when they've completed the four-month program do the Ivy Girl contestants get to show off what they've learned in a big, fun pageant. Picture it. Having been dropped off on the red carpet in a limousine after having their hair and makeup done by professionals, 23 confident, dynamic Utah ladies vie for the crown, the title of Ivy Girl 2017, and a service scholarship! They get to feel like royalty when they strut across the stage and receive their leadership certification in front of their biggest supporters. The program and its celebratory pageant is helping empower girls to become strong, brave, resilient and service-oriented leaders—and that's what should be celebrated most. In this video, we meet one special contestant. 17-year-old Kylee has faced major adversity in her life. At the age of 7, Kylee lost her father to cancer and hemophilia. Her mother struggled in the wake of her father's death, so Kylee moved between homes, until she was taken in by her aunt. Several years later, that same aunt told Kylee about Ivy Girl Academy, and Kylee knew right away that she wanted to join. "I like helping people," the young aspiring leader explains. Kylee chose hemophilia as her platform during her leadership training, given the impact that the condition has had on her life. As for her goals for the Ivy Girl Academy, Kylee says that "winning wouldn't mean getting the crown. It would mean just doing the best that I can." Kylee believes that with Ivy Girl Academy, she can and will make a difference in the world—and that alone proves how grateful we all should be for the Ivy Girl Academy. The 12 Levels of Ladyhood 1.
