This fish uses its fastener located above its head to attach itself to larger individuals. This allows him to feed on the remains of these animals.
The remora is also able to hunt alone in the blue.
The whale shark is the largest fish in the world!
Some whales are larger, but they are mammals, not fish!
Parrotfish create a protective envelope around them when they are sleeping.
So, don't put the light on them during night dive to don't to wake them up and break this envelope.
We can hear the bull shark is very dangerous because of attacks near La Réunion island.
However, tens of them are living at 600 feet from the famous beach of Playa Del Carmen in Mexico. And there are no attacks.
