Behind it trail long threads up to 30 m long, each armed with thousands of stinging cells. A single tentacle could kill a fish or in rare cases, a human, but between its lethal tentacles it attracts a Mana War fish that feeds by nibbling on them, once this fish has some resistance to bites, you must be very careful, most other fish aren't so lucky if a tentacle catches it and coils around.

The new shell will take days to harden. His legs are so limp that they do not function properly. The crab is unprotected and in great danger a smooth stingray is huge, it is about 4 m long it wants a soft, newly molded crab that is easier to eat the crabs try to stick together but are now disturbed by the ray they are scattering a recently moved crab it's too weak to keep up with the crowd the safest place is right in the middle of the pile that's why everyone has gathered here there is safety in numbers but the vast majority of the crabs escape and within the next few days they will be ready to return to the depths and resume their solitary wanderings in search of food this is not a cemetery but the triumph of 100,000 crabs successfully molted a crab Sally Lightfoot one of the thousands of coastal crabs that bide their time every day they gather in the tropical coasts of Brazil waiting for the tide to come out which exposes their feeding areas rocks covered in algae 100 m from the shore getting there there is a race against the tide they jump from rock to rock these crabs seem to be afraid of the water and therefore a good reason the moray eel the Moray chain is a specialized crab catcher, its blunt teeth can easily grab and crush the shell of a crab, it is the deadliest enemy of the crab, but the feeding areas of the crabs are still far away , they must press halfway, but the enemy has other ideas for crossing the land and reestablishing the ambush. feed the crabs they must go ahead but no place is safe an octopus is also a crab killer the crabs lunge towards it, they risked life and limb to graze on these seaweed grasses but in 2

This one isn't doing so well. The small puddle has almost dried up. The OPT will die unless his father can find a better place for him. If dads are good at one thing. They are piggyback rides the parents are no bigger than a human thumbnail but this allows them to reach places others can't this could be perfect the only problem is there is no food here the parents need help somewhere in this forest is mom a female could do something that a male cannot avoid, first the father must lead his mate to his hungry tadpole and the mother takes care of the problem.
She lays a single unfertilized egg and her little one receives a much-needed meal for the next 6 weeks. The parents continue their rounds, an extraordinary test of teamwork and I remember here on the sand flats there is safe accommodation for some the black clownfish family has found an excellent home. The tentacles of this carpet anemone can kill, but clowns are immune to the poison, so in return they can protect themselves from danger. The fish keep the anemone clean of debris, as with all clownfish, the family is ruled by a large female, her white face marks her as the boss, the dominator of the male has to prove his worth, so he works tirelessly removing debris and generally staying on top of the housework her biggest challenge is finding a safe place where the boss can lay her eggs but there is nothing solid here so the female laying them in a nearby shell might be the solution if only she could move it towards the protection of the anemone too heavy plus he has the mind of his own hermit crab but here twice a day the anemone is carried away by the tidal currents and they bring new opportunities an old plastic bottle maybe this doesn't weigh enough a Coconut shell looks good but it is very far from home and you can't move it on your own, so get ready now, work together and adjust the anemone's tentacles a little to make room for it and the shell is hidden in the female .
Finally she has a safe daycare. He proved himself worthy of the father of her babies and he fertilizes them, now he will meticulously care for the eggs keeping them clean and healthy until they hatch in 10 days. They were constantly intimidated and forced to live outside the ranks as outcasts. Your only consolation is each other. another, has been kidnapped and robbed by a higher ranking woman, she has no children and wants a baby of her own, he is only a few meters away, but if his mother approaches, the rest of the troop could very well attack her, the The kidnapper has never raised a baby before, so he is in danger.
They are heading towards a cable car tower. The young mother cannot lose sight of them. You are 30 m high. If she tries to grab her baby and fails, he could fall to his death. kidnapper refuses to hand him over there is one last thing a mother can try and to do so she needs to recruit another maack now the mother begins to groom her companions in full view of the kidnapper. All monkeys love to be groomed, even by a low-ranking female. the basis for peace in maak society over time the desire to unite is too strong the kidnapping is over and the young man can climb back into his mother's arms Sea snakes at some point the ancestors of these snakes lived in mainland they must still visit the surface to breathe, but they are wonderfully adapted to life in the sea, they hunt fish around the island reefs, they have one of the most toxic venoms of any animal, so they don't have many predators, But while they are feeding on the coast of a small island, their elders Nemesis approaches Yoko and Setco are hunters and have a fearsome reputation.
These two 70 year old men are on a shopping trip like no other Yoko and setco live on the small island of kudaka, it is only 4 kilometers wide and with limited space on land. Locals look to the sea for provision as the sun sets, the lady's prey approaches on certain summer nights, venomous sea snakes move towards the island and gather in coastal caves seeking shelter and fresh water. to drink, but landing on this island is extremely risky. It takes some courage to enter without protective clothing. The venom of sea snakes can be 10 times more powerful than that of a rattlesnake.
Yoko has been hunting snakes for 40 years. It is a skill that has been passed down from generation to generation for at least five centuries. Snakes are dried in this smokehouse using a secret process known only to hunters, then dipped in a special soup. Catching and eating sea snakes is a very old tradition on Kadaka Island, where the sea provides more than the land, the blue. The shark travels more than 8,000 km a year riding the currents supported by its wide, wing-like fins. You may not have eaten for 2 months, but the currents can carry promising traces of fatty oils from many kilometers away and will lead you to your next destination. food after days of travel the smell of the food becomes stronger a dead whale recently hit by a boat this could be a real party but the blue shark must be careful great white sharks 10 times heavier than a blue are Very possessive around a whale carcass, great white sharks are eager to feed on the energy-rich whale blubber, which they now know forms an important part of their diet once the great white shark has had its fill.
Smaller sharks like the blue shark face the remains of a carcass as the oils from this dead whale spread more widely. and more blue sharks appear. In a few days, the corpse will be stripped of its fat and its oil will no longer keep it floating. You will sink deep beneath the blue with your fat reserves replenished. Now he can survive another 2 months without eating some red. The flying fox, its ancestors flew here traveling along the chain of volcanic islands that links Asia to Australia, but those enormous wings would extend from their fingers to their toes, making it difficult for them to walk or take off. off the ground, so when they want to rest.
They hang upside down in the trees, but the bats have to drink every day and they do so with the wind, descending low enough to wet their bellies and then, returning to their roosts, they suck the water each night. 10,000 of them come here, not all of them. of them return every 2m of river there is a crocodile they were here long before the bats surviving from Australia's prehistoric past these dramas have been going on for millions of years aerial agility versus patience and deadly speed Australia's forests are hostile places where Making their home in a far corner of Southeast Asia lies the Coral Triangle, one of the richest coral reef areas in the world, underwater cities teeming with life, as in any crowded metropolis, there is a fierce rivalry for space, food and a mate, but the reef is also a place full of opportunities a cuttlefish specializes in hunting crabs but a large crab is a dangerous quarry it has powerful claws the battle fish however has a remarkable talent its skin contains millions of pigment cells with which you can create colors and patterns in constant change and that apparently hypnotizes the crab a cuttlefish may be intelligent but a shark is bigger and eats cuttlefish it is time to disappear again to hunt a new target but the same fascinating technique for those that manage to establish themselves in these bustling underwater cities can be great rewards during the dry season more than half a million Raven laps in this remote ATL in the Indian Ocean their chicks still have their dark juvenile plumage vary in age while the more advanced chicks fly through the air others are not yet ready those just beginning to learn to fly, you see a shallow lagoon that occupies the center of the atall as their training ground.
It is difficult for some of them to stay in a loft for giant long periods. They are generally solitary hunters, but about 50 of them have come here from neighboring reefs. Attracted by this abundance of potential prey, the newbies stay out of the water if they can, even drinking while flying if the chalia wants to catch one, now they have to up their game, so here's a fish that surprisingly has a brain capable of calculating . the speed of the air, the altitude and the trajectory of a bird, the time comes when each rookie has to fly and collect food for himself, his parents take them to the training fields.
Fish, if they want to survive, must learn quickly after a month of practice. Above the lagoon, the young people begin to leave and take risks towards the open sea. Somewhere along this seemingly barren expanse of sand there is food in abundance. Cape fur seeds. There are about 10,000 here. Adult seals are big and strong, but their pups. nor theyoung are closely watched by their mothers a hyena, however, knows to be patient, sooner or later seal mothers must return to the ocean to cool off a single baby teal could feed a hyena and her family for days, but find food is only half the battle now we have to bring it back a jackal is also here and she is not alone if a hyena loses her prey she will have nothing to feed her cubs the jackals will not follow her very far from the coast it has been too long Only by making these long trips can the brown hyenas survive in the middle of the Nami off the southern coast.
It is by far the largest of them, Tasmania, and it has its own special marsupium, one that rarely appears until after dark. Tasmanian devil: Many predators live in a territory full of prey, but there is none of that here. For them every May they travel miles night after night prepared to eat anything they can find dead or alive. The coast is a good place to look. There may be some small creatures. to fish here or perhaps something the tide bought from the carcass of a waby that washed ashore. Tasmanian devils can eat 40% of their body weight in one sitting and have enormously powerful jaws - they take on anything, even bones, in The Den. there are other hungry mouths her two children are 6 months old they still depend on their mother's milk but they are hungry there must be something solid they can find for themselves while they wait for a drink it is this food that smells delicious the opossum but it is a little high this seems more promising finally a giant stick is not bad for a First, their mother will protect and feed these young ones for another 3 months.
Her survival is important to her, but also to us, because they are one of the last families of demons in the world. Tasmanian devils are now endangered and are found in only a few places like this. isset off the coast of Tasmania, fishermen have begun to infiltrate the lush cultivated fields. It's a whole new world. These fields are filled with specially stitched grass intended for livestock, but this herd always seems to be one step ahead, helping themselves to the best grass first. It can even be cut every year. Deer can eat more than 30 million pounds of crops, but some farmers have developed a Live and Let Live attitude.
Deer are reaping the benefits of Hokkaido's human landscape. In a place like this, it is worth being. Adaptable to the heat of early summer, red-crowned cranes have moved into Farmland waterways and have a new member in the family. They traditionally nest in swamps, but most have been drained, so the cranes raise their chicks in an irrigation canal all summer. The chick will depend completely on its parents for food. The canal is full of insects, fish and frogs, but the parents can barely satisfy the appetite of their gangly offspring. The family will not be able to move forward until the chick can fly. can't escape the surprise visitors, the searching deer has managed to wander right into the path of a pair of cranes with a weak old chick, mom and dad work together to carry the chick to safety and then a quick flash of the dagger beak to make sure the deer keep their distance the parents' diligence has paid off their priority now is to feed their chicks while times are good it's breeding season and the trees are full of frogs the female is with a male on tip of branch Perched above the pool Patty is building a nest by beating a giant ball of foam with her hind legs.
She lays hundreds of eggs inside and attracts the attention of other males. Each male could still fertilize some of the remaining eggs in the foam. They come from all directions but the foam makes it difficult to understand the competition. Things quickly descend into an undignified wrestling match. This male's job here is done. It's time to move on and find other nests, but when you're covered in slippery. foam it is difficult to leave with dignity is a common problem for a tree frog as the days go by the eggs develop in the safety of their foam nest the temperature rises with the summer sun and the foam ball dries to form a protective cover the T Pooles inside They are still wet and 6° colder, but Pooles' little tap needs rain at this time of year.
Warm air is rising over the steep Honu Mountains and clouds are starting to form. The tree frogs have perfectly timed the construction of their nests after 20 days. The conditions are perfect. and the wait is over, the hard foam begins to dissolve and the tap poles fall directly into the rice breeding pond. Patty below, they feast on the remaining pieces of the nest, a final meal before venturing out into the big wide world. His mother has accomplished a remarkable feat of planning, but most creatures come together for a very different reason to breed the giant cuttlefish, the largest of all cuttlefish, living only a year or two now that the Australian summer comes to a close. its end.
There is one last act left to find a mate, but there are more than 100,000 males competing for females that arrive in this bay, among them a giant, a true Goliath, probably weighing about 10 kilos. Colored bands run across his skin, which is how cuttlefish communicate this smaller size. The male would not be able to face him alongside Goliath and under his protection a female who has just mated with him, but other rivals are still interested, it seems that a small male would have no chance. The female now shows a white stripe along her side. The closest Goliath is a clear sign that she no longer wants to mate with him.
It's all the encouragement the little buck needs. He will have to use deception. He dims his color and climbs into his arms. He is just the right size to imitate a female. Goliath is tricked, the small male now displays a white stripe just like the real female to deter his advances, he glides past her and they I, by meeting multiple mates, the female ensures the greatest genetic diversity for her offspring, the cunning male leaves his final act complete. So even among giant cuttlefish it seems that it's not all about size. In the underwater forests of northern Japan, residents of this sunken wreck wait for summer temperatures to reach 16°C, which for some is the time to mate with a species of giant Rass called a die cobod, this is a male and in female terms it is particularly attractive, it is one meter long and weighs 15 kilos, much more than the female dimin and it is ready to reproduce, it tries to mate with her and with any of the other dozen or so.
Females live on their territory every chance they get, but females around 10 years old do not notice their advances, this is because when a large female reaches a critical body size, a dramatic transformation can begin. in just a few months. Particular enzymes inside it. Her body stops functioning and male hormones begin to circulate as time goes by, her head expands and her chin lengthens and she has transformed into a man and with this comes a change in temperament. . The old man who ruled all the women here is challenged to a face-off. The more bulbous the head is, the more he intimidates the opponent.
The territory has a new ruler. Only the larger females transform in this way, but the change allows them to have more mates. so they will have many more offspring wearing their jeans but a new The male cannot afford to be complacent inside the body of each female cobod hey there is a new mail waiting the oceans around South Asia are also feeling this pressure these seas They feed billions of people around the world for many fishermen here their catch is their only source of livelihood and here is a fish that they appreciate above all others, the Shar whale, swims slowly and gently collecting plankton, measures almost 20 M long, the largest fish in the world, is also threatened, like many shark species in Asia, populations have declined.
In more than half in recent years they are an easy and valuable catch, but here there is respect for the seas and their inhabitants. Whale shark hunting has now been banned throughout Indonesia. The waters of this whale shark play a different role in the lives of these fishermen. They feed him and the relationship seems to bring joy to both parties and with this new protection has come something truly remarkable: whale sharks from far away are seeking out these fishermen and in these safe waters there is a chance that their numbers will increase and perhaps some One day other shark species will also be protected the people here have made a simple but extraordinary decision to fish in a way that is sustainable for them and the animals caring for wildlife is certainly our shared responsibility on this vast continent and around the world they are decisions like these that are key to protecting the most precious diversity on the planet the great American deserts cover more than 2.2 million square kilometers here roasted by the sun and whipped by the wind the rocks disintegrate and the mountains particle by particle are reduced sand these pillars are all that remains of a plateau where dinosaurs once roamed few animals can now survive here in summer since in all deserts the enemy is heat and it returns every day at 7 in the morning the temperature It is already 25° C the clock is ticking for an unusual descendant of the dinosaurs a roadrunner found only in the deserts of North America built for a life on land can run at more than 30 km per hour but the prey it seeks They are one step ahead the roadrunner's challenge is to choose the right target Aila's monster also big mid-morning it will be 40° C even the smallest lizards will soon head to cover a thin Vickings centipede for the morning's work the hunt should become easier and prey will stay out longer once the summer peak begins to fade and wave energy creates towering fortresses like these cliffs in the Arctic are home to tens of thousands of breeding seabirds.
The cliff walls are accessible only from the air and have many nooks for those who can get there, but to feed the seabirds they must still command the ocean. World beyond a puffin is a fisherman and a father has a companion for life they both share the burden of Ra Ching his weak old chick his puffin who needs five square meals a day the parents alternate fishing trips it's dad's turn when the Fish reserves are low, puffins must fly up to 50 km out to sea to reach good fishing areas, once there they dive into another world.
It is difficult to find good places to fish and they have company of gilots such as the puffin. Their wings are short and good for diving. Puffins can hold their breath. for more than a minute and diving to a depth of 40 m a catch, but it's a long way home after a grueling round trip of almost 100 km these puffins almost made it, but there are pirates on this coast arctic skewers Everywhere returning parents are having their skewers stolen. The long hind wings make them faster and more maneuverable. The puffins must choose their moment wisely and almost lose the last desperate burst of speed and manage to arrive safely home after a 3 hour round trip where their patient companion is waiting today for his puffin to eat, but where ? fish numbers are in decline, many puffins now find it difficult to get enough food for their chicks due to today's changing seeds, it may be even more difficult to be a successful puffin parent a kilometer from the surface, beyond from the sun's reach, a giant black void larger than all the rest of the world's habitats combined there is life here, but not as we know it extraterrestrial creatures produce dazzling displays of light almost all animals need to attract mates and repel predators this language Light is so widespread here that these signals are probably the most common form of communication on the entire planet, and yet we still know little about them.
Hunters light up and in doing so attract curious prey. This is a fang tooth. It has the largest teeth for its size of any fish. It has precious sensors all over its body. head and body that can detect anything that moves in the surrounding water, it is the midnight zone, the most furious fish, but the prey uses the light as a distraction, a lure of luminous ink down here, in this Darkness, the creatures They live beyond the normal rules of time, siphonophores are virtually eternal. They are cloned repeatedly, some eventually grow larger than a blue whale down here there is snow continuous clouds of organic debris float slowly from Above This is food and a whole variety of filter feeders depend on it jellyfish and delicate cucumberssea ​​1% of the marine snow that Miss eventually settles in the sea Flower over millions of years forms a layer of mud up to a kilometer thick is an empty plane that covers half of the surface of our planet the Deep seabed It may seem lifeless at first, but it is home to a unique cast of mud dwellers.
The sea toad is an ambush. Predator with a huge mouth and infinite patience. This fish has been living here for so long that its fins have transformed. in something more useful legs help it crawl through the sea Flower the octopus hovers just above the surface of the mud while delicately examining it for worms, but can fly away at the first sign of danger. There are other challenges here. St Andrews Bay in South Georgia is filled with half a million king penguins in spring. The chicks stay for days while their parents are away collecting food for them.
There is a simple arrangement: the chicks must stay exactly where their parents left them to ensure they are found again, but this chick has decided to look around, there is so much to do. investigated but you should not go too far from your meeting place this father has returned with food in his crop but his chick is not where he left it it is difficult to stay when there is so much to play with the elephant seals the seals are also here very mysterious to find it among the Crowd of young people is not going to be easy, they must recognize each other for their cause but to hear them in such a noisy colony they must be within 15 reaches of each other gathered together a mother black bear is looking for something suitable for her Cubs, this is her first trip to the side From the sea in a few

hours

the tide will return, so you must keep up with mom, there is something tasty here.
Banged crabs can give a nasty bite, so it's best to start with the smaller ones during spring 3/4 of the bear's food comes from the beach, but now this family is not alone, an adult male, he doubles in size and they are in their territory, the cubs know that it is time to get to safety. Bears have poor eyesight, but their sense of smell. is sharp and the male has detected intruders. He knows exactly which tree they are in. If the garrotes stay up there they will be safe, but they are losing valuable feeding time. For now he is content to leave his olfactory mark as a warning note to intruders. the family moves to the Cubs today's lunch will have to be take away the tide rises and in a matter of minutes the feeding time is over for another day the Kalahari desert here the food is more abundant but a pangolin is hidden she can collect food that others cannot.
His keen sense of smell allows him to detect the presence of ants and termites in their nests under the sand. Its sticky tongue, about 30 cm long, allows it to collect them from the depths of the subsoil. They watch it carefully the drier it becomes, the deeper the termites go. many live are far beyond the reach of even a panin, but not an art walk. It is the largest lending animal in the world. Their sense of smell is extremely acute, similar to that of a shovel. Its claws and powerful legs allow it to dig to depths of 5 or 6 m in an adult. arvok needs to eat approximately 50,000 termites every day.
Termites are very nutritious and full of moisture and can be collected here all year round. Arvars are typically nocturnal, but the fact that they are foraging during the day is a sign that food is scarce. Recent droughts in the Kalahari have caused termite numbers to drop and as a result the arars here are close to salvation. Changes in the global climate are affecting many of Africa's animals. Southern Africa is predicted to warm twice as much as the global average in the next century. The future will be bleak for those who cannot do so. They adapt quickly enough Termites are an important source of protein, but perhaps they are an acquired taste, he goes off to find something he prefers, it is difficult to know where to look or where it is safe to climb.
Different levels in the forest contain different foods and some of the most delicious are found in the highest parts of the canopy, 50 m above the ground. He's a couple of years old and already becoming adventurous. Her mother could climb to the top in about 10 minutes if she wanted, but she delays keeping up. Be careful with him, a fall from this height could be fatal since the spaces between the branches are too wide for him. His mother allows him to use her body as a bridge. There are only 10 m left to reach the top, but it is difficult for small hands.
He had enough. time for rest with mom and this is your reward sweet and juicy ripe mangoes there are so many things you must learn you will be completely dependent on your mother until you are seven years old it is the longest childhood except ours in the Gulf of Mexico these eruptions also release a super The salty liquid Bri is heavier than the sea drinker and accumulates in large puddles on the sea floor. It's hard to make sense of the place. A 15m deep concentrated saltwater lake on the seabed around its margin, perhaps even stranger. a profusion of life, giant muscles that can live and grow for a century or more, clustered closely together, dwarfing the shrimp and lobsters that feed around them.
Cutthroat and scavenging eels come to the shores of Lake Brian in search of something edible, some even venturing into the brine. Spending too much time in it can cause toxic shock in an eel. The only hope is to overcome it. He manages to escape. Others are not so lucky. The brine damages their bodies and decades' worth of casualties accumulate on the margins here on the coast of Peru. There are so many seabirds fishing in the coastal waters that the cliffs are covered in droppings more than a meter thick. The humble penguins consider soft guano as a good material for digging their nests, but it is a complicated matter, it is the breeding season and it is more hopeful.
The nests arrive impeccable after swimming in the sea. It's time for the residents to clean up and catch some fish for themselves and their chicks to get to the sea. They cross the remains of an old nest. It's only 100 m away, but the beach is already full. With SE Els they have also raised their young and do not like to be bothered to cross a minefield like this. You need a bold and brave leader. A brave start. A dead end. Now he's in trouble. This is going to take a bit. of mass surfing, but now all the waves of the sea, crossing them will be complicated, a purifying bath in the ocean that is well worth the effort.
Forests once covered 80% of Europe, now only half remain a brown bear, one of 1,500 left in Finland. forests their Cubs have recently left their nursery 10 long summer days mean there is plenty of time to play with two boisterous mugs it is worth resting whenever possible but their mother must be on guard the Cubs have seen something that a large male he is looking for a mate the Cubs are not his so he could try to kill them his cubs are excellent climbers and now they are out of reach 15 M up his mother warns him to keep his distance but the Cubs are descending too soon to do so.
Let's not take chances, it was close The forests of Finland give us an idea of ​​what Europe once was as a land of endless desert where large animals roamed everywhere she needs to put food in the mouths of her two cubs there is a bitter winter coming and if they are not well fed their cub will not survive this is a difficult place to be a mother the family is not alone this peninsula is home to 200 brown bears it is one of the most densely populated populations in the world ah ah, the salmon bonanza has attracted others here too.
No one lives permanently in this remote part of Hokkaido, but a group of Hardys have special permission to stay here for part of the year. Hokkaido is Japan's second largest island, but the harsh conditions mean it is home to only 4% of its people. Shiroko is one of the loneliest corners where you have to live close to wild brown bears, they can weigh 300 kilos and Not to be messed with when bears and humans cross paths, things can get dangerous, but something surprising has happened here. for the fisherman Bears have become part of everyday life, it takes some courage, but men live alongside them as equals, tough characters, side by side, both dependent on the invocation, the mother bear knows what he is doing.
The survivor is in his blood to which his ancestors came. Hokkaido from Siberia and they walked here 12,000 years ago Hokkaido joined the Russian continent. Siberian animals colonized it before sea levels rose, turning Hokido into an island. That's why the wildlife here is so different from the rest of Japan and so well equipped to cope. The next winter, when the animals leave the edge of the forest and move into the farmland, the relationship with humans becomes less benevolent. Nederland maps are as bold as their mountain cousins, often venturing out in search of new opportunities. There are all kinds of dangers.
But there are also rewards if you are willing to take some risks. For over 100 years, people have been growing the best fruits and vegetables in these warm soils and rich oils. For these brazen thieves, it is irresistible. Growing perfect produce is a Japanese obsession, so the Lastly what people want is to prowl maacs as the day heats up farmers take a break the coast is clear they have to be careful if they spot them they will cause trouble but every day they challenge the electric fences they know all the weak spots where they can organize their raids and gorge themselves on the fruit of the farmers' labor.
They are almost impossible to stop, but the farmers are not willing to give in. They take out their secret weapon. specially trained monkey dogs. The Japanese Sheba enu is one of the most famous in the world. The oldest breeds and people have trained them to protect their crops from monkeys. There is even a Japanese saying that when people fight it is like a dog and a monkey, but the rewards outweigh the risks. They'll be back tomorrow. It's just the heat. of the kishio current that allows coral to grow so far north in the Pacific Ocean, the current also brings nutrients from the depths, there is a very small resident that never leaves the reef, it is a blue current that cleanses us and leads a life very busy. he eats parasites and dead skin from other fish, but he has to wait for them to come to him and at this point no one stops long enough to even take a bite, but then he sees something worth chasing, a batfish, like a client in a spa the batfish lies back and waits for a tension it opens its gills and the cleaner Rass enters to begin the treatment the batfish even changes color probably to make the parasites more visible someone else has arrived at the Reef the batfish is abandoned there is a visitor to the open ocean worth leaving everything for a 2m long manta ray has returned to his favorite stretch of reef.
He signals to the manter by wagging his tail and the giant responds by fanning out to clean up. The blanket keeps their feeding backs coiled while swimming, but thorough cleaning keeps them free of parasites. This huge fish would never visit Japan if it weren't for the warmth that bathes the island chain and the helpful services of this clever little Ras.
