Dangerous inhabitants of the seas

Going to the sea, we all dream to bring home the best Spa experience. Warm sun, hot sand, clear sea water are the main ingredients for a successful holiday. However, we must be careful: the sea is fraught with many secrets, and its inhabitants can be not only fun and amazing, but also dangerous!

Reading these lines, you may remember the ruthless shark jaws, in colors described in the literature and cinema. However, the chance to meet this fearsome sea predator in the equipped zones of rest mass is negligible, or rather, is excluded altogether. Much more dangerous for swimmers represent other marine life — small and harmless-looking, sometimes not visible on the seabed, it is quite capable of thoroughly spoil the vacation.

Let’s start with the least dangerous inhabitants of the sea. So is sea urchin . This sea dweller is not seeking to be acquainted with noisy bathers, so quiet waits the beach season in the coral reefs, under rocks or in the Sands of the seashore. That type of urchins which are found off the coast of Turkey, Egypt and the Adriatic, is not poisonous, however, inadvertently stepping on a hedgehog, it is possible to prick. Sometimes the skin can stay chip needle, then you should contact your local medical center, where the needle would get, and you will prescribe an antiseptic for treatment of wounds. And it is better to take precautions:take care in advance by purchasing special shoes designed for walking on the beach and for swimming. However, in tropical areas of Southeast Asia, the Pacific and Atlantic oceans inhabits a completely different kind of sea urchins — urchins poisonous tropical dudelove . Their needles have a length of 30 inches, they are very emotional and react to them had fallen on every shadow. A meeting with such resident sea is fraught, at least, severe injury, and even pain shock or paralysis.

Another not too pleasant inhabitant of the sea — the jellyfish . Won’t mention the small innocuous jellyfish-Aurelia that are found in all warm seas, including in the Black. But the further South you go, the more dangerous become the inhabitants of the sea. Off the coast of the Canary Islands, right in shallow waters, is found an incredibly beautiful Medusa with iridescent body, like a sail, and a bright red crest, called the “Portuguese ship” . Many coastal hotels have even from time to time to close their beaches to prevent accidents, because the burn of this jellyfish is quite capable to cause not only seizures, but also severe General intoxication of the organism. In the warm waters of the Indian and Pacific oceans found another dangerous jellyfish called “sea wasp” . Burn this jellyfish is easily fatal, and besides, Medusa endeavour to sting their prey in several places.

Another dangerous inhabitant of the warm seas — ugly and poisonous fish-stone . Covered with nasty growths fish have sharp dorsal fins, dripping with poison. Perfectly camouflaged among the rocks, it represents a serious danger for swimmers. The needle sharp fin facing unwary swimmers shock pain and swelling, and in the worst case — death.

Another inhabitant of the sea bottom, which better be avoided, scat . This Amateur dig into the sand, despite the apparent clumsiness, has a good response, and may even frighten him sailing over his resting place a diver. Weapons of slope is sharp venomous barb on the end of a long tail. Dramatically throwing it at the offender, Stingray can leave on the human body infected lacerated wound. In this case, the victim should immediately seek professional medical help.

Surely everyone heard about the horrible octopus . wlasciwosci the unwary bathers to the bottom of the sea. Actually to meet large octopus is not so easy, and, moreover, the creature very carefully — it prefers to hide away from the places of mass gathering of people. The only way to come across an angry octopus there are divers who examines the cabins of old sunken ships: the octopus, who decided that the creature in mask and fins encroaching on his home, will be forced to defend themselves. Tourists climbed quite far from his native Ukraine — to the shores of Australia and South East Asia, still, do not forget about caution, because only there is a poisonous species of octopus blue-ringed octopus . Small octopuses shimmers with all the shades of blue and blue, causing the divers an overwhelming desire to touch his hand. However, to do this in any case is not worth it. Fast-acting the poison of this inhabitant of the sea is very dangerous, a tiny dose is enough to paralyze some people.

Summarizing, we would like to encourage campers to be careful. Do not provoke any marine inhabitants, taking their hands or by touching foreign objects. As a rule, the denizens of the deep would never attack the person first. The sea is a separate world in which people are only guests, so do not forget about elementary rules of behaviour.
