Hey beautiful people

Some of the students have done their dive courses, intro dives and certified dives at the Dive centre in Byron Bay. Here is some of the awesome footage the students who are certified divers took and shared with us …..

I believe they call this one a Grey Nurse shark, these sharks are harmless unless provoked. The Grey Nurse shark is Australia’s most endangered marine species.

This is a Wobbegong shark they are bottom-dwelling sharks, so they spend much of their time resting on the sea floor. Most species have a maximum length of 1.25 m (4.1 ft) or less, but the largest, the spotted Wobbegong, can reach about 3 m (9.8 ft) in length. These sharks are relatively harmless. We humans eat this shark…

 A couple of Sting Rays hanging out !! can you see the Wobbegong shark hiding underneath them.  Sting Rays are pretty unique as they have no bones in their body – their skeleton is made up of flexible cartilage. Rays protect themselves with venomous spines or barbs in their tail.

This little fella here is a sea turtle, think they are all having a snooze in these pictures…These ancient creatures have been on Earth for more than 100 million years — even surviving the dinosaurs when they became extinct 65 million years ago.
