What sharks eat?

Among the modern sharks should first be noted epipelagic planktophagous of being the largest members of the superorder, class, and all living groups participatng animals. These giants feed on similar to baleen whales, filtering thousands of cubic meters of water through a “net launcher”. which has become Horny Gill stamens of these sharks. Remaining in the oral cavity Maso and Munro – plankton (except for especially large objects) and serves as food sharks planktophagous. Just today there are three such shark: giant whale, which the inhabitants of epipelagial, and largemouth tending to mesopelagial, for depths greater than 150 m.

Predatory aquarium fish

Recently going to the pet store in the aquarium Department, discovered a large new fish. And among them Chitala of ornate or Indian knife. It is a large fish, a bit unusual for our market.

Differences between the pond and the reservoir are enclosed in the volume of water contained in each water body. It is considered that if it to 1 million cubic meters of water, this body of water is called a pond, if more than a million – reservoir. That would not get lost in the numbers, imagine an artificial reservoir in the length and width of 600 meters and an average depth of 2 meters, this would be considered a pond, if the average depth is 4 meters – that is the reservoir.
