The ocean is considered to be quiet and peaceful. Many people chose to relax, change air or break the monotony of everyday life at the beach. They sunbathe, swim and engage in entertaining activities in the ocean without really knowing what lives down there. Some of the most dangerous creatures can be swimming right next to you. Look at how scary the sea can be.

Whether they are dangerous Pacific black dragons or simply algae, they definitely are not what you’d want to be surfing around. Male black dragons usually grow and live until they mate and die once they mate.

She looks so calm and collected. Some of you may think that she is in danger but mantas, which are popular in tourist sites, are easily habituated to humans. Indonesia has 2.2 million square miles of ocean. It is the world’s largest sanctuary for manta rays.

The ocean hides a thousand of secrets. Who knows what could be hiding right under your tiny boat? The tiger shark is a solitary, mostly nocturnal hunter. It is notable for having the widest food spectrum of all sharks. It consumes a variety of prey ranging from crustaceans, fish, seals, birds, squid, turtles, and sea snakes to dolphins and even other smaller sharks.

Swimming trough waters full of jellyfish sounds like the craziest idea ever. Contact with a jellyfish tentacle can trigger millions of nematocysts to pierce the skin and inject venom, but most jellyfish stings are not deadly.

This creepy animal burrows in the sand and electrocutes everything that passes by. It can be found up to depths of 36 m. The mouth of the stargazer faces up so that it can ambush prey while hiding in the sandy bottoms of coastal bodies of water and the top of it can generate and transmit an electric shock.
