The inhabitants of the red sea.
Continue about the underwater world of Sharm El-Sheikh (or rather about the animals that could be observed in the corals near our hotel).
Star Cygan (Siganus stellatus), cute fish of the genus Xigang, all in fine-fine point with a yellowish fins, swam always in pairs. Under the spines, fins, an injection which can be painful.
The Blowfish strorey point (Canthigaster solandri). Protective colouring, moved sharp shots, the rest of the time freezes on the bottom. Although, me personally, despite the disguise, catches the eye. To gloryhole famous Puffer fish, the organs of which in different concentrations contains strong poison tetrodotoxin, and cooking wrong which could send a foodie to the hereafter.
Hawksbill turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata) or Sea Turtle . It is likely that this is not a Hawksbill turtle and Green turtle. I, unfortunately, didn’t see the turtle so close, only saw a small turtle up close, and with a big Board a pleasure boat. This was taken from my father-in-law six months later in Sharm El Sheikh with my camera.
Single fish-Rhino (Naso unicornis), number two in size (to 70 cm in length), very original in appearance and unfazed by the nature of the fish. Rhino obviously natalies for a fun build-up-“horn” on the head. The tail spikes, almost like a fish from the family surgeons.
Gangewadiya fish-Rhino (Naso lituratus). Despite the fact that also is a fish of the family of rhinos, at first glance, nothing similar to the previous one (but if you look at the fin and spikes are very similar).
A shell from the Big tridacna (Tridacna elongata) . these shells are often in children’s cartoons depict, as a typical representative of the sea fauna. Beautiful shell, when alive, inside the “sponge” of different colors.
Napoleon fish or wrasse (Cheilinus undulatus). The huge fish, which I saw. This instance is almost a meter long. Perhaps the photos are not impressive, but this is due to the fact that the water in the pictures the relative sizes difficult to be transferred. In Hurghada, at depth, swimming with a mask, seen instances of a meter and a half or two. In nature Gubanov, there are about 600 species and large specimens can weigh up to 200 kg.
Blue-spotted Stingray (Taeniura lymma), he is one of the main representatives of the red sea, which wanted to see.
Masking the blue-spotted Stingray is nearly perfect. It seems on the photo, here it is, shining its bright blue spots and visible ten meters. It was not there. To see Stingray managed a week of snorkeling, only after I heard shouts of “Scat, scat”, came to the guys from Russia, and they me with a nose stuck where it floats, and then, with difficulty, found his gaze. In motion, the ramp literally merges with the fauna of the seabed. He should stand still, and you to look away, to find it will be almost impossible.
To make this picture, dived to a depth of 3-4 m to the ramp at arm’s length. Already at home, when systematized photos, and read about Stingray, learned that the thorn is poisonous and spicy, and approach him too close is not necessary. Became, for a moment, as it is quite uncomfortable
The inhabitants of the sea are very deceptive, some that seem dangerous, in fact harmless, and some are quite small and not scary at the first look can pose a serious danger. Therefore, better basic, know in advance in person.
This is in addition to the stingrays, saw a large white at 10 meters depth when diving. And on the last day, at a depth of 15 meters under me, managed to see the sea devil.
