You go to the Black sea. Do you know what sea monsters eat? The black sea is very friendly and perfectly safe for humans. There are no scary sharks, poisonous sea snakes, Barracuda and other horrible monsters. Besides, in the sea, as on earth, just for something to do on man, no one ever attacks. And if there is in the Black sea inhabitants that can cause you a little trouble, do not grab their hands and pull the tail… kornerot jellyfish Is the largest jellyfish of the Black sea, the diameter of the dome can exceed 40cm. It is easily recognized by this fleshy, bell-like dome and a heavy beard of the mouth of the blades underneath. Lace on the blades of Camerota are poisonous stinging cells that can burn the skin, like hot water or nettles. Probably why the jellyfish has three more Russian names: sea nettles, gigalo, Zhuchka. When you see it follow the simple advice: don’t touch comerota, go around, “oblivate”. And do not touch even dead, or at least wash your hands afterwards. Otherwise, RUB their eyes and accidentally get burned. Kornerot helps to survive in the sea for juvenile fish that are hiding under his hood from the predators have feasted on those tasty little thing, but I’m afraid of stinging cells jellyfish. Himself kornerot feeds exclusively on plankton, but kornerot in the sea doesn’t eat anybody. Scientists say jellyfish to the category “food stubs”. (Although in Japan,Korea and China comerota eat: this is “crystal” meat can be boiled, fried and even salt). And here another interesting detail concerning jellyfish. It turns out that they have eyes. And the same kornerot, presumably, sees us well, although it is difficult to say in what form. However, again: jellyfish, even the most venomous itself to attack the person never will be… the Dragon is Not aggressive to man and other poisonous inhabitant of the Black sea – dragon. It is a demersal fish with a large angular head, bulging eyes and a huge, greedy mouth. Dragon usually buries itself in sand or silt, and there awaits its prey. In this case, the sand sticks out his dorsal fin, five rays of which the poisoned spines. Spikes and toxic slime from dragon are not for attack but for defense. However, accidentally stepped on has buried in the sand of a dragon, can significantly be affected: a shot of this small black sea fish is equivalent to the bite of poisonous snakes. But don’t be afraid to step on the dragon – the event is unlikely, usually the fish manages to get away from the approaching person. Much more likely to get injured dragon, the fishermen who caught it on bait. In this case it is better not to try to remove the dragon from the hook alive prick. And the sting of this fish is dangerous even after her death, therefore, to start cooking meals from dragon, remove with scissors its dangerous spikes. In taste same qualities of the sea dragon is just gorgeous, he’s a good as a holiday and in the ear. Continue reading
Polychaete worms (polychaetes, a type of round worms) usually occur in the coastal zone. Buried in the sand, they expect the tide to lean out from his hiding place. These are pushily – the inhabitants of the sandy shallows. But there is deep-sea polychaetes, such as Nereid pelagic, living in the soft mud in the depths of the White sea.
“Pelagic” is called the organisms living in the pelagic – in the water or on its surface. Why is the bottom dweller of the Nereid called pelagic? It turns out that once a year, in summer, long Arctic day, all Nereids float to the surface to spawn. It is unclear how the worms managed to simultaneously leave their homes and that is their signal to the ascent. Spawning Nereids light for fish and marine birds – “time to eat”. Caviar Nereids eating not only animals. Fried eggs this large worm, similar in flavor to fried, is a favorite dish of the locals.

Far from shore in the water column hovering angel. This is a small krilangi clam, smoothly waving translucent pinkish wings – outgrowths on the foot. Angelfish hovers vertically in the water, amazing grace. Looking at this miracle, and not think that before us is a voracious predator, the main production of which smaller predator – krilangi clam monkfish.
Monkfish malchevskogo angel and painted, as befits the devil, in black color. His defense is a fragile shell, where he hides when in danger. But the angel of the sea shell is not a hindrance. Easily destroying its tentacles, pulls the angel in the hell mouth. In translucent the body of Angela long will be seen the traces of “black Affairs” – the remains swallowed by hell. Continue reading
