The deep blue.

The origin of all life.

Lagoon bays, oceans and seas.

Billions and billions of litres of water,

all containing an abundance of species,

which are unique to our planet.

From the smallest living being

up to the biggest animals on earth.

From harmless vegetarians

and animals who live on plankton,

to the most dangerous

predators on earth with razor sharp teeth

which can wreak

havoc beyond our imaginations.

Beings that we love for

their blaze of colour,

and beings, that for centuries,

we have feared

for the stories told about them.

All of this is accommodated

by the wonderful,

almost infinite element of life, the sea.

Here, in the oceans of our planet,

live some highly trained predators.

Sharks are one example of these predators.

They have been on this earth

for over 400 million years

and, in that time,

have hardly needed to change or adapt.

They are the kings of our oceans,

truly the pinnacle of sub-water evolution.

The number of species of shark

is still not entirely clear

because, to this day, new,

previously unknown species are discovered.

At this time,

we know of about 500 different species.

All of these sharks have strategies

and tactics to catch prey.

All of them are perfectly

adapted to life in the sea.

Some of them hunt in the daytime,

some only at night.

We will now search

for the most dangerous hunters

and find out what

makes these animals so frightening.

We will also find out

which of these underwater hunters

is the most dangerous

and which can be crowned

king of the predators.

More than half of these animals live

in the deep ocean, around 650 feet down,

so they are rarely seen by man.

All various sizes, shapes,

and textures are represented.

From the 21 inch dogfish,

to the giant whale shark,

which can grow up to 60 feet long.

From very rare species, which have only

been seen in specific areas,

to common ones which can be found

in almost every part of the world.

Let's go on a journey to discover

these impressive and beautiful animals.

Let's dive off together

into the fascinating

and exciting underwater world of sharks.

We start with a very common fellow.

The family of reef sharks.

They can be very different

and the largest reef shark

can reach a maximum of 7 feet in length.

There are three species of reef sharks

we take a look at.

The whitetip, the blacktip

and the silvertip reef shark.

Have a look at this beautiful breed,

and you will quickly realize

how you can distinguish between them.

For, as their names imply,

there is a band of colour

on the tip of their mayor fins.

Reef sharks can

weigh from 30 up to 70 pounds.

With its slim body shape,

it is perfectly adapted

for hunting in the coral reef.

Here, the agile hunters find their prey

between coral branches and in caves.

Small fish, crabs, lobsters

and squid are its main prey.

With deft, snake-like movements

they can manoeuvre

in even the tightest of crevices.

The different members

of the reef shark family

can grow from 5 to 6.5 feet,

making them larger than most human beings.

In rare cases, some reef sharks

can reach a length of 9.5 feet.

Their mouths contain 96 teeth,

three times as many as a human,

which makes them

extremely effective hunters.

In addition, the reef sharks

also have exceptional sensory perception.

His excellent sense of

smell acts as a radar,

which is useful,

as he prefers to hunt at night.

But even during the day

the stomach can growl.

And, so, if the sharks are not resting

they are always on

the lookout for small snacks.
