Sharks of the Mediterranean sea

Sharks of the Mediterranean sea comprise about 47 species, 16 of them reach about three meters in length, and 15 species are considered potentially dangerous to humans. Among them are the white shark, considered the most dangerous of all.

About his name there are several hypotheses. I believe that this name was given by Turks: Karaden guise or Black, that is inhospitable. So they called him because of the fierce resistance of the local population, who lived on the black sea coast, which the Turks tried to conquer. Possibly, the Black sea was named because of its characteristic severe storms, during which the sea darkens.

The black sea is one of the almost uninhabited land, on the seas. Life in the sea is concentrated in a narrow coastal strip at shallow depths. Two hundred meters below, water freezes. And yet, in Black sea you can find many interesting creatures. Continue reading
