A team of international experts, who arrived at the Egyptian resort of Sharm El-Sheikh after a few cases of shark attacks on humans, concluded that the coast, swim at least two predators that used to eat human flesh.
This opinion was voiced by experts after carefully studying the nature of the wounds on the bodies of the victims from shark tourists. According to them, the predator even belong to different species. If Russians and Ukrainians attacked korotkaia Mako, the deaths of German women over the weekend blame white tip reef shark. According to scientists, this is the worst scenario that they assumed, as one individual it would be much easier to catch.
While biologists believe that the Cougars, who were recently caught off the coast of the red sea, the people did not attack. It turns out that the shark-killers are still on the outside.
Meanwhile, scientists are trying to understand why fish that very rarely attack people, to change their behaviour. According to the expert from the United States, Director of the Florida program for shark research George Burgess, now the coast is examined in order to find any violations of ekosistemy the red sea.

If a person is not an aquarist, he can perceive the content of fish in the tank as violence over living nature, because we are picking up marine animals out of their habitat – the seas, oceans, which are their natural habitats. To some extent it is, however, one tries to ennoble the aquarium as best as possible to bring the living conditions of fish to natural conditions, to create an image in the design of the aquarium in the likeness of the house of marine life.
Not every person available will have similar luxury marine aquarium, although it can be different size from the usual small, which is positioned on the table, to huge that can fit even people in the pool. The crux of the problem lies in the complex care for fish.
Regardless of size, in the aquarium must be properly done:
