Typically, sharks are considered extremely dangerous animals, and call it being an ordinary fish is sometimes more than difficult. This is not surprising, because, just look at the size of that “fish” and the number of teeth in her mouth. Indeed, virtually all species of sharks are predatory animals. It is immediately noted that there are about 450 different species. However, there are sharks that are as food prefer small fish, plankton, who lives in the water, etc. in Other words, some sharks are natural purifying devices for water. As it turned out, sharks can live not only in seawater, i.e., salt, but also in fresh waters. However, this ability is given not to all representatives of this genus of animals. In this game we will talk about predatory sharks that feed on large species of aquatic creatures.
Moreover, sometimes they are not averse to eat people if they are nearby. The game shark is one fish mysteriously swam in the waters of the river called Thames. It flows through London which is the capital of great Britain. At this time you have to control the movements and actions of a Continue reading
A cruise in the Mediterranean sea is very popular with tourists. This is an opportunity to visit several countries in one vacation. Here are some interesting facts about the Mediterranean sea:
The very name of this inland sea comes from the Latin Mare Mediterranea — sea in the midst of the Earth. This term was coined by the ancient Greek writer Julius Solin.
Modern computer technology has helped scientists to calculate that the filling of the Mediterranean sea occurred due to the catastrophic floods that occurred 5.3 million years ago. It is noteworthy that it was filled for two years. The article describing this research, published in the journal Nature, New Scientist gave a brief retelling.
Tectonic activity of this region caused the formation of a wall in place of Gibraltar. She was blocking the ocean from the sea that turned into a lake. Previously thought that the isthmus had a very powerful waterfall, which was considerably higher than Niagara, he filled the sea for about 10 years. Continue reading
The greatest length of the Black sea from North to South — 580 km and a maximum depth of 2210 m, the average — 1240 m. the salinity of the water is approximately 18 ppm. The depth increases pretty quickly. Over a sloping beach near Evpatoria, Feodosia. On the South coast, in mountain areas, the depth increases more rapidly: a few meters from the shore you have to swim (or, in the alternative, to swim along the shore). Be careful, even at a short distance from the shore can be strong currents to deal with which is not prepared person is quite difficult. But mostly this does not apply to places of mass bathing (if not to swim too far). Waters of the Black sea, as a rule, not susceptible to freezing. The average sea temperature in winter ranges from +6 to +8 degrees, in summer — from +22 to +24 degrees (can warm up to 26 degrees in a particularly hot summer). However, it is worth noting that the Black sea could throw a “surprise”: one day deep cold currents cool the coastal waters up to 12 degrees, even Continue reading
