Wallpapers - in the Sea

 


Great whites are torpedo-shaped with powerful tails that can propel them through the water at up to 15 miles (24 kilometers) per hour.

A shrimp looks out from an anchor coral in Maumere Bay in Indonesia.
Anchor coral, also called hammer coral, have anchor-shaped ends to their tentacles.
Their sweeping tentacles are adapted to attack nearby corals and to protect the colony.

A colony of sea squirts forms a colorful landscape, ample hiding place for an Eastern cleaner-clingfish  in the Tasman Sea off the coast of Australia.
The tiny fish, which cleans parasites from the bodies of larger fish, fights strong currents by anchoring itself with a sucker disc on its abdomen.


Baring rows of serrated teeth, a great white shark is aptly called a killing machine.
Researchers believe great whites hunt visually, sighting their prey, ramming into it, and stunning it while biting into it at the same time.



Majestic in purple, a spotted cleaner shrimp in the waters off Bonaire Island in the Caribbean works hard for its customers.
This cleaner shrimp associates with a sea anemone and attracts fish from which it cleans and eats detritus such as parasites and algae.
Such a symbiotic relationship benefits both the shrimp and the fish.




In the early morning hours of September 1, 1985, oceanographer Robert Ballard and photographer
Emory Kristof found and photographed the shipwreck of the century, the R.M.S. Titanic.
Kristof and his crew used a submersible search vehicle and a towed sled with a still camera to shoot
 more than 20,000 frames, including this one of the ocean liner's starboard propeller.
