And also pelagic, reef sharks -white tip, black tip, grey tip, silver tip-, hammerhead shark, thresher shark, dugong, tuna, grouper, sea turtle, sun fish or mola mola, a dozen of whalesharks swimming all together in one dive, whales with their calves, tens or hundreds -if you are technological enough to know how to use a drone- of oceanic mantas with 6 meters of wingspan. And macro, porcelain crab, orangutan crab, harlequin shrimp, sexy shrimp, weird nudibranchs, every kind of bizarre sea creatures, known as critters in divers' slang, the poisonous but gripping scorpion fish in every version spiny devilfish, zebra lionfish, leafy scorpionfish, raged-finned lionfish, stonefish and rhinopias, these ones in each hue you can imagine red, green, yellow...
