😭😭🐬💙 Yet another disturbing video has emerged from a Japanese aquarium. This again shows the under stimulating environment captive dolphins are forced to deal with. A major portion of the dolphins in captivity in Japan (as well as China and Russia) were either wild caught themselves or were born into captivity from parents who were wild caught. It is extremely possible that the dolphins seen in this video were once free in the ocean. The fact that three dolphins are lying on the bottom of the tank is very concerning. Lying at the bottom of the tank is a stereotypical behaviour only associated with captivity. Wild cetaceans are constantly on the move—even while resting they continue to travel with their pod. However in captivity cetaceans deal with artificial pods, lack of space, and increased stress and boredom—which is evident in the unnatural behaviours they display (such as logging at the surface of the water for extended periods of time and laying at the bottom of the tank). - Please watch the documentary "The Cove" for more information on the annual Taiji dolphin slaughter/captures and visit Dolphin Project (@dolphin_project) for day to day updates. Please help end this suffering for human entertainment! Don't buy a ticket! - Caption: @sevenseasoffreedom Video: umitamalife (possibly taken at Marine World Uminonakamichi in Japan)

Anyone here love the Vampire Squid 🐙🦇🦑 The chances of anyone running into a vampire squid are slim, seeing as these misunderstood creepers reside in the aphotic zone (less then %1 sunlight penetrates), lurking in the dark. This cephalopod doesn’t have any ink sacks because, well, it’s really dark down there and using ink to try to facilitate an escape from a predator seems pretty futile. Instead, the vampire squid shoots bioluminescent goo out of its arm tips and creates a cloudy haze in order to make a swift getaway." Why are they called vampire squids? This species lurks in the dark and has numerous rows of spikes that line their arms underneath. 📸 & excerpt Via @science Via @OCTONATION 🦑 #OctoNation #Octopus #squid #wildlife #animaladdicts #vampiresquid #blackjaguarwhitetiger #AnimalRescue #animals #vampire #natgeo #nature #wildlife #wildlife #marinelife #animalplanet #ocean #findingdory #sea

Megamouth sharks are enormous sea creatures that we know almost nothing about—scientists have only encountered 102 specimens of the animals ever, and it was discovered a mere 41 years ago in Hawaii. Japanese fishermen and residents of Tateyama, Chiba Prefecture, were thus very surprised when a megamouth got snagged in a fishing net near a local lighthouse on May 22, as reported by the The Asahi Shimbun. It was then moved to an area of open ocean in a guide cage, Earth Touch News noted, and filmed by reporters and a fish researcher and television host named Sakana-kun, who is also a professor emeritus of the Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology. Footage of the shark was captured by a local resident named Hiroyuki Arakawa. Sakana-kun reportedly dove into the water “in his trademark fish-shaped headdress” to identify the megamouth, and said that he could “see her vigorously swimming.” But then, on May 24, the shark was found on the seafloor not breathing, and has since been reported dead. “It is regrettable,” a downcast Sakana-kun told Asahi. “Having seen her on the previous day I thought she was going to become energetic.” It’s not clear what caused the shark to die, though the stress of being caught is capable of killing fish, even if they at first seem fine when first freed. Unlike many sharks, the megamouth doesn’t need to constantly move to breathe, and is capable of pumping water through its lungs while it is stationary. That should, in theory, make them easier to save from entanglement compared to other sharks. These animals have been spotted mostly in Japan and Taiwan, but there are also sightings as far afield as Australia, California, Peru, Brazil, Senegal and South Africa, suggesting it ranges widely throughout the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian oceans. It’s also been seen in water as shallow as 20 feet, and as deep as nearly a mile beneath the sea. It’s one of three filter-feeding sharks—besides the basking shark and the whale shark—catching krill, shrimp and squid in its huge, inflatable mouth, which have 50 rows of tiny teeth. They are, however, harmless to humans. They are one of the larger sharks, growing to lengths of more than 23ft.

How adorable is this 😍🦈 At Roca Partida, during the day, the ledges are full of sleeping whitetips. There is a hierarchy with this. The bigger sharks get the better ledges and the smaller sharks get the cracks and small caves to sleep in. Less comfortable and seemingly less protected. Here is a pile of juveniles in one. Really cool to see.

Who loves to freedive? What an awesome shot by @cainedelacy 👌🏽 No fins and handmade goggles 🤙🏽 "I keep this photo on my phone to remind of simpler living and the benefits of taking it slow and enjoying the present. Mr Tadi is approaching 80 now, and was mid 70's when I took this. He is a Bajau Laut or "sea gypsie" and they live with relatively little concept of the future. The best part is he shows that living as one with the sea gives you epic longevity and an amazing physique." ~~~~~~~ #freedive #freediving #underwaterphoto #uwphoto #uwpics #ocean #sea #dive #nature #wild #wildlife #breathe #amazing #blue #epic #wicked #awesome @wakatobidivetrip
