    Fun Fact: Hammerhead Sharks are Viviparous, which means pups grow inside the female shark, similar to humans. Unlike humans, the mother gives birth to 20 to 50 live pups at once.

    Fun Fact: As with all other shark species, Hammerhead Sharks have a special sense of feeling using electro receptors. This an organ called the ampullae of Lorenzini. Sharks are able to pick up very small electrical pulses that all living things emit. In fact, they can sense the beating heart of a human from several miles away!

    Fun Fact: Unlike most fish that have just one gill, sharks boast five to seven gill slits on the sides of the head, and rely on a large oil filled liver for buoyancy as opposed to a gas-filled swim bladder. This liver takes up around 30% of their total body mass, and they use this in conjunction with forward movement to control vertical position.

    Fun Fact: The ship spent 12 years tethered in the Navy’s “Mothball Fleet” in Virginia’s James River. In June 2001, it was towed to undergo an elaborate cleaning process and 11 months later was relocated off Key Largo. On May 17, 2002, the Spiegel Grove unexpectedly sank and rolled over about six hours before its intended scuttling. Because of an exceptional safety plan, there were no injuries. Resolve Marine Group finished scuttling the ship on it side June 10, 2002. That’s where it stayed until Hurricane Dennis waves helped to finish the job correctly.

It’s important to do our part to keep our Keys beautiful and thriving! If you would like to get involved with one of our Dive Against Debris Trips or learn more about our efforts, please call the shop to find out how! Fun Fact: Early Spanish settlers in the New World used the salty leaves of mangrove trees to flavor their foods. Later settlers ground up mangrove bark and used it to brew medicinal teas.

    Fun Fact: While at rest, a moray will slowly open and close its jaws. At first glance, this looks like a “back off” warning to other creatures, but in reality, it’s anything but. Normal fish have bony gill covers on their sides. By constantly opening and shutting these, water is forced over the internal gill chamber, allowing the animal to breathe.

    Fun Fact: Green morays are actually brown! It only looks green because, like many morays, the animal wards off predators by secreting a layer of mucus that covers its skin. This slime contains various toxins, including one which destroys red blood cells. The goo also dramatically changes the fish’s appearance. While green morays are really a drab shade of brown, the gunk’s yellowish tint gives them a more vibrant hue.
