Hello

This is the main blog that the blog "The Ocean Is Wonderful" is connected to.
This is the url that shows up if I follow you for that blog. I don't really use this blog anymore. It's a black and white ocean blog. There's still occasional posts, but the only reason it's still here is because I can't have the other blog without this one.
Sorry for any confusion.

Species in the Rhinochimaera family are known as long-nosed chimaeras. Their unusually long snouts (compared to other chimaeras) have sensory nerves that allow the fish to find food. Also, their first dorsal fin contains a mildly venomous spine that is used defensively. They are found in deep, temperate and tropical waters between 200 to 2,000 m in depth, and can grow to be up to 140 cm (4.5 ft) in length.

Chimaeras (also known as ghost sharks and ratfish) are an order of cartilaginous fish most closely related to sharks, but they have been evolutionarily isolated from them for over 400 million years.

Quick Fact : Before it attacks its prey, a bull shark head-butts the animal. This head-butting habit, along with its short, blunt snout and grumpy personality, led to its name of “bull” shark.

Barracuda Explosion by Paul Colley on Flickr.

Via Flickr:
This school of barracuda was exhibiting unusual behaviour, with a lone, bigger and slightly emaciated-looking fish seeming to harass the smaller members of the school. It could have been predatory or just aggression, but the school was nervous, wheeling into different shapes as the bigger fish circled outside. The reef, the bigger fish and a fellow photographer frame the school, which was causing myriad smaller fish nearer the reef to exhibit equally nervous behaviour.
