Dangerous inhabitants of the deep sea

The inhabitants of the deep sea are extremely dangerous. When meeting with some of them the question “do I Eat this fish?” is no longer relevant and replaced by another question: “How to get away from this fish?!”. Not surprisingly, many tourists at his ignorance about the danger, suffer from the attack of the inhabitants of the deep sea.
