The gray shark is often gregarious during the day and therefore visible in broad banks. It is more lonely during the night.
It is a curious shark, who does not hesitate to approach the divers and get away just after.
The gray shark must swim continuously to feed these gills with oxygen. He is therefore fond of the passes that allow him through the strong current to eat oxygen without effort.
The kakihona sushi (sushi wrapped in persimmon leaves) are really the best!
To eat them, you have to go to Nara!
The whale shark is the largest fish in the world!
Some whales are larger, but they are mammals, not fish!
Turtles are in economy mode when they are sleeping. If they are woken during night, they may not have enough air to return to surface.
So, please be careful during night dives!
