"Watch in HD" A new meaning on Human & Sharks relationship. Filmed and edited by Ramon Llaneza "To use this video in a commercial player or in broadcasts, please email [email protected]". Enjoy the experience of diving in harmony with sharks, eliminate the fear and change sharks perception. Discover the shark's real nature and their behaviors. Let's create a new paradigm and a new set of beliefs about these misunderstood animals. The tiger shark is one of the larges sharks. Adults are typically 12 to 15 feet length but they may attain at least 21 feet. Females mature at 10 feet and males at 9 feet. The pups are born in spring, the gestation period is about twelve months. Tiger sharks prey upon sea turtles, seabirds, dolphins, rays, other sharks and host of other items. This amazing animal is killed by millions, worldwide sharks population has a 90% decline. Estimated 150,000,000 sharks are killed every year. This is a dramatic figure of over exploitation of sharks and a way of damaging one of the largest and most important ecosystems on the planet. The consequences are unpredictable and tragic for future generations we have to understand that any changes in nature trigger collateral changes that affect all species. Sharks are top predators in the marine ecosystem and therefore have a key role in maintaining the trophic balance and biodiversity. Given the human ignorance and greed for their wholesale destruction, they need all the help they can get. Do fish feel pain? Yes they do. Scientists presents facts and research to show that fish feel pain, and expose the cruelty involved in angling. Fish pain and suffering in angling its a fact. Do fish have any feelings? In my opinion and experience, yes, they do, as does all animal life. If you spear or angling a fish, do they suffer, do they scream silently, do they feel pain. Yes they do. You can see it in their struggle for life.
Exploring Mysterious and Enigmatic Belize Great Blue Hole

Ramon Llaneza diving rebreather explore stargate the entrance to alien underworld in Belize and Bahamas. Watch more details about this exploration at https://youtu.be/mh49kkENw_Q . The Mysterious Belize Great Blue Hole is a large underwater hole off the coast of Belize. It lies near the center of Lighthouse Reef, a small atoll 100 kilometers (62 mi) from the mainland and Belize City. The hole is perfectly circular in shape, over 300 meters (1000 ft) across (diameter), 3140 feet circumference and 125 meters (410 ft) deep. It was formed as a limestone cave system during the last glacial period when the sea level was 400 to 500 feet below present time and was dry land. Last glacial period began about 120,000 years ago and end about 15,000 years ago. Reaching the maximum extension 26,500 years ago. At the end the ocean began to rise, the caves flooded, and the roof collapsed. Believed to be the world's largest feature of its kind, the Great Blue Hole is part of the larger Belize Barrier Reef Reserve System, a World Heritage site of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). The hole itself is the opening to a system of caves and passageway that penetrate this undersea mountain. In various places, massive limestone stalactites hang down from what was once the ceiling of air-filled caves thousand of years before the end of the last Ice Age 15,000 years ago. When the ice melted the sea level rose, flooding the caves. This process occurred in stages. Evidence for this are the shelves and ledges, carved into the limestone by the sea, which run the complete interior circumference of the Blue Hole at various depths. The Blue Hole is a "karst- eroded sinkhole." It was once a cave at the center of an underground tunnel complex whose ceiling collapsed. Some of the tunnels are thought to be linked right through to the mainland, though this has never been conclusively proved. Notable are the large population of sharks such as lemon, black tip, reef, hammerhead, and bull sharks. Mysterious and legends always have been around the Belize Blue Hole. This was the entrance to Xibalba?. It's the kind of underwater geology that inspires speculation about aliens creating geometrically perfect anomalies, mermaids and monsters living in darkness. I explored the bottom of the Blue Hole perimeter (3,140 feet circumference). To do this I dove down twice, reaching the depth of 375' feet which took 4 to 5 hours of diving each day.

Fish Behavior - Chased by a friendly Green Eel
 
03:47
Filmed by Ramon Llaneza in Palm Beach, Florida. The Great Green eel (Gymnothorax funebris) can reach more than 8 feet, these fish resemble snakes, have smooth scaleless skin. The narrow, muscular jaws can drive the fanglike teeth deeply into anything they grasp and a bite may follow serious infection. Largely nocturnal and secretive by nature, eels hide in cervices and under coral ledges. They are harmless to humans and are key elements for the marine environment. Eels should never be eaten, since some individuals of all species are capable of causing severe food poisoning or even death.

The Bahamas Underwater Caves are the most beautiful, enigmatic and intricately decorated underwater caves on earth. These underwater caves with astounding labyrinths contain many massive crystal columns, multi color delicate and extremely fragile crystal formations of every imaginable shape. These calcite crystal (speleothem) formations date to over 350,000 years old with thousands of years of geological information. When sea level were lower during glacier periods (4 times in the last 350,000 years), these caves were dry and the crystals formed by dripping water and then re-submerged again 4 different geological times. Over hundreds of thousands of years, red iron Saharan dust has blow across the Atlantic Ocean and settled into these caves and caught up in the crystal formations giving the incredible range of colors. These formations tell us a lot about ancient global climate and fluctuations in sea levels during glacial and interglacial periods. They are a time capsule. The spectacular and unique earth geological history of thousands of years of creation has been kept in these underwater caves in perpetual darkness waiting to be discovering by mankind.

Goliath Grouper Aggregation in Florida, USA
 
01:35
Filmed in Palm Beach Florida by Ramon Llaneza. During reproduction (immediately after the full moons between June and December), they come together in groups of at least 100 individuals. These groups are known as spawning aggregations, and they form at relatively few places throughout the species’ range. Individual Atlantic Goliath Groupers likely travel many miles to reach their preferred spawning sites and form part of the spawning aggregation. At these sites, the groupers reproduce by a method known as broadcast spawning, where females release eggs and several males release sperm into the water column above deep reefs all at the same time. This method increases the likelihood that eggs will become successfully fertilized and that fertilized eggs will not be eaten by egg predators on the reef surface. The giant of the grouper family, the goliath has brown or yellow mottling with small black spots on the head and fins, a large mouth with jawbones that extend well past its small eyes, and a rounded tail. It also has five dark body bands or stripes that are most visible on young goliath. Goliath grouper populations dramatically declined throughout their range during the 1970s and 1980s due to increased fishing pressure from commercial and recreational fishers and divers. Prohibited species receive greater protection to ensure continued health. This led to a prohibition from harvest in U.S. waters in 1990. Goliath grouper populations have substantially recovered since the harvest prohibition took effect. There have been increases in abundance in certain areas, and the distribution of goliath grouper populations has extended into areas of its former range throughout Florida, including the Big Bend and Panhandle regions. However, it is not clear as to when they may fully recover and when harvest restrictions could be relaxed. Biology Goliath grouper is the largest of the western north Atlantic groupers. This giant can reach 800 pounds (455 kg) and over 8 feet (2 meters) in length. The Florida record is a 680-pound goliath grouper caught off Fernandina Beach in 1961. The species had been targeted both commercially and recreationally since at least the late 1800s. Goliath grouper are extremely vulnerable to overfishing due to a combination of life history traits such as slow growth, long life, late sexual maturity, strong site fidelity and the formation of spawning aggregations. When not feeding or spawning, adult goliath groupers are generally solitary, sedentary and territorial. Before the goliath grouper reaches full-size it is preyed upon by barracuda, king mackerel and moray eels, as well as sandbar and hammerhead sharks. Once fully grown, humans and large sharks are the goliath grouper's only predators. Diet Goliath grouper are opportunistic predators and feed mostly on slow-moving, bottom-associated species. Calico crabs make up the majority of their diet, with other invertebrate species and fish filling in the rest. Goliath grouper will occasionally feed on fish that are struggling on a fishing line, but they have not been shown to actively hunt down fast, free swimming fish such as snappers and groupers. Prey is ambushed, caught by a rapid expansion and opening of the mouth that allows prey to be sucked in and swallowed whole. Goliath grouper were found in tropical and subtropical waters of the Atlantic Ocean, both coasts of Florida and from the Gulf of Mexico down to the coasts of Brazil and the Caribbean. In waters off Florida, young goliath grouper spend up to 5-6 years in mangrove habitat, particularly in the Ten Thousand Islands area off southwest Florida, which seems to be its center of abundance and may serve as critical nursery habitat. Because mangroves serve as important juvenile habitat for these fish, their loss could affect population recovery even if reproductive levels of adult fish are high. As they grow, goliath grouper move to shallow reefs, eventually joining adult populations offshore on shallow artificial and natural reefs. Adults seem to prefer habitat with overhangs, bridges, piers and shipwrecks. Reproduction Goliath grouper are relatively long-lived, with a maximum known age to be at least 37 years old. However, some scientists estimate that these fish may have the ability to live over 50 or even 100 years. Reproductive maturity first occurs in fish 5 or 6 years of age (about 36 inches in length) due to their slow growth rate. Males mature at a smaller size (about 42 inches) and slightly younger age than females. Females first mature at 6-7 years of age and 47-53 inches in length. Goliath grouper have been known to form spawning groups of 100 individuals or more. These groups occur at consistent sites such as wrecks, rock ledges and isolated patch reefs during July, August and September. In southwest Florida, presumed courtship behavior has been observed during the full moons in August and September.

Cleaning behavior is a widespread marine behavior is common relationship between parasite picking fishes and shrimps and numerous reef fishes. Clients fishes spend significant amounts of time at sites know as cleaning stations, where they often assumes stationary trance like poses while parasite eating fishes and shrimps dine on their pests and keep their infestations under control. The fishes remain in zombie-like states for seconds or minutes at a time, often repeating the behavior in the same spot throughout the day. Tactile stimulation and parasite control might be related. The pleasure of touch could well be the primary incentive for clients to attend cleaning stations, which by having parasites removed, possibly improves their health and ultimately reproductive success.

Brian Kakuk, Veronica Llaneza, Ramon Llaneza explore the Bahamas Underwater Caves. The most beautiful, enigmatic and intricately decorated underwater caves on earth. These underwater caves with astounding labyrinths contain many massive crystal columns, multi color delicate and extremely fragile crystal formations of every imaginable shape. These calcite crystal (speleothem) formations date to over 350,000 years old with thousands of years of geological information. When sea level were lower during glacier periods (4 times in the last 350,000 years), these caves were dry and the crystals formed by dripping water and then re-submerged again 4 different geological times. Over hundreds of thousands of years, red iron Saharan dust has blow across the Atlantic Ocean and settled into these caves and caught up in the crystal formations giving the incredible range of colors. These formations tell us a lot about ancient global climate and fluctuations in sea levels during glacial and interglacial periods. They are a time capsule. The spectacular and unique earth geological history of thousands of years of creation has been kept in these underwater caves in perpetual darkness waiting to be discovering by mankind. Various governmental and scientific institutions has revealed new species of cave adapted marine life and new species of extinct terrestrial animal fossils that are now repainting the picture of the Bahamas past environment.

Blue Hole Of Belize Mysterious Enigmatic Abyss of Darkness
 
05:12
Ramon F Llaneza diving into abyss of darkness explore stargate entrance to alien world, this xibalba is the entrance to the underworld in Belize and Bahamas. Ancient Mayans believed blue holes to be portals to the underworld and way to communicate with the gods. This Mysterious Great Blue Hole is a large underwater hole off the coast of Belize. It lies near the center of Lighthouse Reef, a small atoll 100 kilometers (62 mi) from the mainland and Belize City. The hole is perfectly circular in shape, over 1000 ft across (diameter), 3140 feet circumference and 400 ft deep. It was formed as a limestone cave system during an glacial period when the sea level was 400 to 500 feet below present time and was dry land. Last glacial period began about 120,000 years ago and end about 15,000 years ago. Reaching the maximum extension 26,500 years ago. At the end the ocean began to rise, the caves flooded, and the roof collapsed. Believed to be the world's largest feature of its kind, the hole itself is the opening to a system of caves and passageway that penetrate this undersea mountain. Massive limestone stalactites hang down from what was once the ceiling of air-filled caves thousand of years before the end of the last Ice Age 15,000 years ago. When the ice melted the sea level rose, flooding the caves. This process occurred in stages. Evidence for this are the shelves and ledges, carved into the limestone by the sea, which run the complete interior circumference of the Blue Hole at various depths. The Blue Hole is a "karst- eroded sinkhole." It was once a cave at the center of an underground tunnel complex whose ceiling collapsed. Some of the tunnels are thought to be linked right through to the mainland, though this has never been conclusively proved. Mysterious and legends always have been around the Belize Blue Hole. This was the entrance to Xibalba?. Aliens stargate, It's the kind of underwater geology that inspires speculation about aliens creating geometrically perfect anomalies, mermaids and monsters living in darkness. I explored the bottom of the Blue Hole perimeter (3,140 feet circumference). To do this I dove down twice, reaching the depth of 375' feet which took 4 to 5 hours of diving each day.

Silky Sharks Apex Predator in the Open Ocean
 
03:50
Sharks filmed in Florida by Ramon Llaneza. Knowing The True Nature of Sharks. The silky shark (Carcharhinus falciformis) It is one of the most abundant sharks in the pelagic zone, and can be found around the world in tropical waters. Highly mobile and migratory, this shark is most often found over the edge of the continental shelf down to 50 m (164 ft). The silky shark has a slender, streamlined body and typically grows to a length of 2.5 m (8 ft 2 in). It can be distinguished from other large requiem sharks by its relatively small first dorsal fin with a curving rear margin, its tiny second dorsal fin with a long free rear tip, and its long, sickle-shaped pectoral fins. It is a deep, metallic bronze-gray above and white below. With prey often scarce in its oceanic environment, the silky shark is a swift, inquisitive, and persistent hunter and has been known to drive them into compacted schools before launching open-mouthed, slashing attacks. This species often trails schools of tuna, a favored prey. Its sense of hearing is extremely acute, allowing it to localize the low-frequency noises generated by other feeding animals, and, by extension, sources of food. The silky shark is viviparous, meaning that the developing embryos are sustained by a placental connection to their mother. Reproduction occurs year-round except in the Gulf of Mexico, where it follows a seasonal cycle. Females give birth to litters of up to 16 pups annually or biennially. The newborn sharks spend their first months in relatively sheltered reef nurseries on the outer continental shelf, growing substantially before moving into the open ocean. The large size and cutting teeth of the silky shark make it potentially dangerous, However, attacks are rare, as few humans enter its oceanic habitat. Silky sharks are valued for their fins, and to a lesser extent their meat, hide, liver oil, and jaws. Because of their abundance, they form a major component of commercial and artisanal shark fisheries in many countries. Their association with tuna results in many sharks being taken as bycatch in tuna fisheries. Although slow-reproducing like most other sharks, the wide distribution and large population size of the silky shark was once thought to buffer the species against these fishing pressures. However, data now suggest that silky shark numbers are declining around the world, which prompted the IUCN to reassess its conservation status from Least Concern to Near Threatened in 2007. The silky shark has a cosmopolitan distribution in marine waters warmer than 23 °C (73 °F). In the Atlantic Ocean, it is found from the U.S. state of Massachusetts to Spain in the north, and from southern Brazil to northern Angola in the south, including the Mediterranean Sea, Gulf of Mexico, and Caribbean Sea. It occurs throughout the Indian Ocean, as far south as Mozambique in the west and Western Australia in the east, including the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf. In the Pacific Ocean, the northern extent of its range runs from southern China and Japan to southern Baja California and the Gulf of California, while the southern extent runs from Sydney, Australia, to northern New Zealand to northern Chile. Primarily an inhabitant of the open ocean, the silky shark is most common from the surface to a depth of 200 m (660 ft), but may dive to 500 m (1,600 ft) or more. The silky shark is an opportunistic predator, feeding mainly on bony fishes from all levels of the water column, including tuna, mackerel, sardines, mullets, groupers, snappers, mackerel scads, sea chubs, sea catfish, eels, lanternfishes, filefishes, triggerfishes, and porcupinefishes. Good feeding opportunities can draw silky sharks in large numbers; one such feeding aggregation in the Pacific has been documented "herding" a school of small fishes into a compact mass (a bait ball) and trapping it against the surface, whereupon the sharks consumed the entire school. When attacking tightly packed fish, silky sharks charge through the ball and slash open-mouthed, catching the prey fish at the corners of their jaws. Studies have shown that silky sharks are highly sensitive to sound, in particular low-frequency (10–20 Hz), irregular pulses. Experiments in which these sounds were played underwater attracted sharks from hundreds of meters away. Silky sharks likely orient to these sounds because they are similar to the noise generated by feeding animals such as birds or dolphins, thus indicating promising sources of food. Studies have also demonstrated that a silky shark attracted by one sound will quickly withdraw if that sound abruptly changes in amplitude or character; this change need not be a sound produced by a predator to evoke the reaction. The bite force of a 2-m-long silky shark has been measured at 890 newtons (200 lbf).

Teenagers diving with sharks in The Bahamas
 
06:23
The Llaneza family kids Magin 19, Claudia 13 and Nathalie 12 years old in the video are sharing a vacation with sharks. While Ramon Llaneza is trying to understanding the short-term changes in reef sharks (Carcharhinus perezii) and evaluating behavior changes after the sharks are stimulated. One of our goals is to understand the shark's behavior associated with selective attention to certain stimuli. Another goal is to educate people on how to behave in the water when sharks are present, and to not be afraid of sharks. Once we got to the reef, we prepared our diving equipment and planned the dive. We dove in a place with approximately 9 reef sharks surrounded us. This expedition has been an exciting adventure for the whole family. Every day started by waking up with the sunrise, diving during the day, contemplating the sunset and working on the project. We shared very exciting moments and learned a little more about shark behavior and how sharks interact with humans. They rank among the most perfect and most beautiful creatures ever developed in nature. We expect to meet them at the coral reefs or in the open ocean. Their absence means disappointment for the divers, while their appearance is exciting. When their formidable silhouette glides along the populated coral reef, fish do not panic; they quietly clear the master's path, and keep an eye on him. So do we. Being in the Bahamas gave us the opportunity to be in close contact with sharks. Our experience has proved once more the theory that sharks attack as purely inquisitive testing. Researchers say that 96% of all shark attacks are single strikes, or "hit and run" attacks or mistakes. We need to support the worldwide effort to give sharks a chance to survive Diving with sharks has been a unique experience. Hopefully some of you will try it and experience the adventure just to be in close encounter with yourself and with this unique & amazing animal. We all need to learn more and understand why they attack and end the fear that drives us to destroy them. Perhaps most important of all is that the sharks are in serious trouble. More than 100 million of them are killed by people every year through greed, need, selfishness, ignorance, and a depletion of marine ecosystems that sharks are defenseless against. The threatened extinction of many shark species is no longer fiction but grim reality. Their disappearance will inevitably lead to an ecological disaster in the seas and a tragedy for humans.

Bull Shark super predator in open ocean a docile creature
 
02:55
Knowing The True Nature of Sharks. The bull shark (Carcharhinus leucas) is a predatory species that lives in coastal seas and is the shark with the best ability to move into fresh waters – particularly large, coastal rivers and lakes. They are able to move back and forth between saltwater and freshwater with ease. This behavior brings them into more contact with humans than most species of sharks, and they are therefore responsible for fatally biting more people than any other species. Reaching lengths of 11 feet (3.5 m) and weights up to nearly 700 pounds (315 kg), the bull shark is one of the largest sharks (Family Carcharhinide). They are aggressive predators and eat a variety of prey. They are known to eat several species of bony fishes and also small sharks, some mammals (both terrestrial and marine), seabirds, and occasionally sea turtles. Large, adult bull sharks do not have any natural predators. bull sharks do not mature until they are 15 or 20 years old. They mate via internal fertilization and give birth to well-developed, live young. Though they give live birth, bull sharks do not connect to their young through a placenta. Instead, during the gestation period, the embryos survive off of yolk sacs attached to each individual. Bull sharks do not just venture into freshwater for short periods. They travel far upriver in some places (including the Nicaragua River, the Zambezi River, and the Mississippi River) and there is a semi-permanent population in Lake Nicaragua that was thought until recently to be a separate species. They also apparently give birth in freshwater. During these long periods inland, bull sharks come into close contact with people, and most of the incidents when they have bitten people have been in rivers rather than in the ocean. Even so, these events are extremely rare. Typically, when a bull shark does bite a person, it only takes one exploratory bite and quickly realizes that the person is not its preferred prey. Unfortunately due to their size, even an exploratory bite can be fatal or extremely traumatic. Bull sharks have been fished, commercially, in the past, but currently the biggest threat that they face is accidental capture in fisheries targeting other species. Most of these accidental captures take place when these sharks are upriver. They are also occasionally targeted in shark culling operations meant to promote the safety of beach goers and other tourists. This activity has not been proven to be effective in protecting swimmers and is generally frowned upon by conservationists and scientists. As a result of the risks that bull sharks face throughout their range, the species is considered near threatened with extinction. (Tell your Representative to ban the buying and selling of shark fins in the United States and help protect sharks!) If population trends are not reversed, this species may be at greater risk. Let's create a new paradigm and a new set of beliefs about these misunderstood animals. This amazing animal is killed by millions, worldwide sharks population has a 90% decline. Estimated 150,000,000 sharks are killed every year. This is a dramatic figure of over exploitation of sharks and a way of damaging one of the largest and most important ecosystems on the planet. The consequences are unpredictable and tragic for future generations we have to understand that any changes in nature trigger collateral changes that affect all species.

Extraordinary Phenomenon of expulsion of an ingested metallic object by a lemon shark. A mature wild male lemon shark (Negaprion brevirostris) with 8 feet total length, was observed between December 2013 and December 2016 at a diving shark site known as the Lemon Drop in Jupiter Florida, USA. The shark was observed to expel an ingested metallic foreign object (stainless steel fish stringer) through its body wall over a three years period. At the final observation, following expulsion, we observed this lemon shark with scar tissue and in healthy condition. The lemon shark was able to survive under perforation of its stomach, vital organs and body wall. This provides evidence of extraordinary healing, recovery and survival capabilities of sharks.

Shipwreck exploration at 305 feet deep, Key Largo, Florida
 
02:59
Ramon Llaneza using rebreather dive a shipwreck sunk at 305 fsw. The Vitric a 165-foot long wooden schooner barge, was built in 1911. The ship capsized and sank on March 29, 1944, in an area southeast of Molasses Reef, en route from Havana to West Palm Beach with a cargo of 134,000 gallons of syrup. The wreck, lying in approximately 305 feet of water, was known by fishermen for years as the “Molasses Wreck.” The site is dominated by the numerous syrup containers the vessel carried at the time of her sinking. Not much of the wooden hull is visible above the clean, sugar-white sand bottom. Due to the normally excellent visibility encountered in this area, the entire wreck site is visible from either end. Portholes and other brass fixtures still remain undisturbed among the wreckage. The steering quadrant lies on its side which helps to identify the stern, while the bow is revealed by a large windlass that resides high off the bottom on a section of wreckage and the anchor at the bottom.
