This wonderful world is not so harmless!

Plunging under the water, we find ourselves in a different environment, where everything is not like on the surface. Even the usual vital functions and sensations esmeraldabrody follows: what is natural on the earth, it is difficult or even impossible under water – after all, to move, to breathe, to look and listen, we can only with the help of special equipment. Technical progress in the production of modern diving equipment enables us to feel underwater all better, more confident and more comfortable every year. Confidence is a good trait that helps a person to adapt to the aquatic environment and nothing to fear. But it is close to the self-confidence and feeling of impunity, which, unfortunately, is typical of some experienced divers. Caution disappears and then start conflicts with the underwater world – because among the great variety of marine animals not only those that are created to gladden our sight. You need to be able to distinguish those who can deliver in big trouble. A bit dangerous creatures in the sea, but it is better not to relax and certainly not in any way behave aggressively towards them.

Natural human curiosity and unconditioned reflex to hold an unknown object or pet living creature are the cause of physical contact with a dangerous animal. After that comes the unsettling realization that the underwater world is not so harmless! Usually one lesson is enough, so people became more careful and polite in relation to nature. The main thing that this lesson had serious physical and mental consequences.

Another cause of accidents become aggressive animals capable to find a person in the sea and make him the victim. The image of a great white shark chills the blood of many people, and other sharks rightly inspire fear and cause strain. Moray eels, giant Barracuda and a stone fish, stingrays, jellyfish and sea snakes – all these creatures pose a real danger to the person under water.

In addition to direct physical effects on humans, hazardous marine animals have on him, and an indirect psychological effect. In the water, infested with venomous or biting creatures, nervous and impressionable people feel very hard and you can forget the basic rules of conduct and control gear, drastically to shy away from large and curious fish, which abound on coral reefs and really quite scared at the sight of a shark or manta ray-manta rays. Seeing the shark on the right, Moreno on the left and a bunch of sea urchins with long needle-sharp beneath, these sailors, in the best case showing the surfacing signal, and at worst, without warning, inflate the compensator and abruptly soar up, driven by primitive fear. Panic is the worst condition under water, as the person loses ability to reason and think over their actions. Even with proper equipment and a safe profile of the dive panic can lead to deplorable consequences, which was what happened. It is therefore very important before diving to understand what the animals living in this place, represent a real danger and which aren’t.
