The amazing underwater world and its inhabitants

The amazing underwater world and its inhabitants, The underwater world is full of many mysteries, and the surface of the moon, mankind, has studied better than the ocean floor. Amazing sea life resides in a column of blue water. The largest, most powerful and most poisonous animals also live under water, and not on land. We will meet some residents of the underwater world today.

The amazing underwater world and its inhabitants
1. Sea leopard
Sea leopard
Sea leopard is a predator. This is a species of real seals that lives in the subantarctic regions of the Southern Ocean. It got its name thanks to the spotty skin, and also because of the very predatory behavior. The sea leopard feeds mainly on warm-blooded vertebrates, including penguins and young seals.

Jellyfish, Palau
The jellyfish lake in the Pacific Ocean is one of the amazing places on our planet. There are 10 million different jellyfish in one small lake. Jellyfish of different sizes: from the giant with a basketball to a small little thing with cherries.

Spade fish, Bonin Islands
The body of these fish is strongly compressed from the sides, and in shape resembles a disk or a shovel. The appearance of shovel fish changes so much with growth that fish of different ages are described as different species. Juveniles are colored yellow or orange. With age, the fins become shorter, the yellow color fades, the black stripes gradually erode, and the fish takes on an almost monotonous dark color. (Photo by Brian Skerry)
