Remembering the greatest white shark ever, cal rip fin (aka shredder). flashback - filming great white sharks on assignment with my friend and dive buddy @lawrencegroth and the #pelagicexplorer aboard the legendary @solmarv #greatwhiteshark #season at #guadalupeisland is around the corner. let yourself change your life's perspective about sharks, meet the apex predator of the oceans. we need sharks in the oceans, and sharks need our help! #greatwhiteshark #calripfin #likehimnoother #wemissyou #foreverinourhearts #saveoursharks #carcharodoncarcharias #guadalupeisland #keepbajablue @pelagic_life #333productions @joeromeiro333 @jamesmoskito @sharkstewards @angels.of.the.sea @oceanskeepers #47metersdown #sharksareawesome #oceanskeepers

Sometimes even the cleaner fish play predator roles. you have to do what it takes to survive in the wild. #argonauts #papernautilus #pelagiclife #macropredation @maresmexicanos @backscattervideophoto @nauticamhousings #333productions #keldanlights argonauts. one of the most astounding cephalopods is the paper nautilus also known as argonaut. this (super-)family of octopus-like cephalopods lives in pelagic habitats of the subtropics and tropics. pelagic habitats are those of the free ocean water away from the bottom, especially at the water surface. though the argonaut is called paper nautilus, it is neither made from paper nor is it a nautilus. it not even is closely related to the nautilus, though both are cephalopods. the argonaut's shell is special among all molluscs. it is only built by the female, and only as case for the protection of the argonaut's eggs, that are placed inside in long threads. the female argonaut lives in the shell's entry and guards the eggs, until the young hatch. at the ends of the first tentacle pair the argonaut (argonauts like other octopus relatives have eight tentacles) has got wide sail-like flaps. usually the female argonaut holds these flaps spread over the shell, but they also serve it to catch prey that swims into them. the male argonaut is much smaller than the female. while the latter reaches a size of up to ten centimetres, the shell being up to 45 centimetres large, the male only reaches less than 2 centimetres size. the male argonaut is special because of its altered third tentacle, that is kept in a pouch until it is needed. like among other cephalopods this tentacle is called the hectocotylus. the male argonaut, other than its larger relatives, often leaves its hectocotylus behind, the latter finding the target on its own. it seems obvious that the male argonaut dies after copulation, as no argonauts with their hectocotyli grown back have been found so far. generally living argonauts are difficult to find, possibly because of their pelagic way of life. much more often their shells, sometimes, masses of them, are deposed on the shore by the sea. that way they also find their way into collectors' packs.

You can never be certain whether what you're observing is the real state of nature or the state of nature that has been altered by your observing it. stay focused! @solmarv @maresmexicanos @nauticamhousings @backscattervideophoto #canon #canonmexicana #keldanlights #dolphingettingcleaned #cleaningstation #sneaky #tigershark #hopespots #keepbajablue @oceanskeepers #47metersdown #sharksareawesome #saveoursharks

Repost by @oceanfilmtour in the last 50 years overfishing and pollution have destroyed most of marine life in many parts of this planet. the legacy shows a very remote place in mexico the archipiélago de revillagigedo where pacific giant mantas have been able to survive. find a show near you on www.oceanfilmtour.com #oceanlovers #oceanfilmtour @joeromeiro333 @erevalle

Sharks are not enemies, they can be friends. just as us we look for our well-being so they are. @solmarv @pelagic_life @maresmexicanos @nauticamhousings @backscattervideophoto @joeromeiro333 @oceanskeepers #47metersdown #sharksareawesome #saveoursharks

Starting off the week powerfully! during mating season, the humpback whales try hardly their best to attract a mate, either by singing, breaching, tail or pectoral slapping at the surface. @maresmexicanos @pelagic_life @gulf_program @djiglobal @oscar.ortizg @caboexpeditions @whalesharkmexico
