whale shark

Whale shark

Despite the rainy weather that we have been having we have been lucky enough to see another whale shark at Sail Rock. Lucky #PADI discover scuba divers and fun divers have had an experience that they will never forget.

About the whale shark

The whale shark (Rhincodon typus) is a slow-moving filter feeding shark and the largest known of fish species. The largest confirmed individual had a length of 12.65 m (41.50 ft) and a weight of about 21.5 metric tons (47,000 lb), and unconfirmed reports of considerably larger whale sharks exist. The whale shark that we had today at Sail Rock was a juvenile with a length of around 5 m, Claims of individuals over 14 m (46 ft) long and weighing at least 30 metric tons (66,000 lb) are not uncommon. The whale shark holds many records for sheer size in the animal kingdom, most notably being by far the largest living nonmammalian vertebrate. It is the sole member of the genus Rhincodon and the family, Rhincodontidae (called Rhiniodon and Rhinodontidae before 1984), which belongs to the subclass Elasmobranchii in the class Chondrichthyes. The species originated about 60 million years ago.

UFO sighting

dive sites thailand ufo

An unidentified 'Floating' object or UFO, has been filmed in UK waters.
With the recent deep space findings of a supposedly alien structure i thought i would keep things a bit closer to home... 
The so called 'jellyfish' was reportedly filmed during deep-sea drilling near the United Kingdom. The species is usually found approximately 5,000 feet below in the south Atlantic Ocean.

The creature created a mystery as it has organs and appendages never spotted on a jellyfish before.

Previously it was suggested that the floating blob could be a whale placenta, but the hexagonal shapes on the skin made that unlikely. 

Another guess was that the creature might be a Stygiomedusa Gigantea. This type of jellyfish - which can grow up to six metres in length - has only been spotted 114 times in 110 years, so details on it are scant.
But again, the appendages got in the way.
The animal’s brown stomach caused further confusion, as Deepstaria enigmatica are typically colourless, with one description saying the passages to the stomach are 'somewhat irregular-edged, forming a reticulate network'.
The hexagonal markings on the top of the creature led one commentator on the website Snopes - which tries to debunk or confirm rumours - to suggest this is simply nothing more than a fishing net.
Deepstaria enigmatica, is a jellyfish of the family Ulmaridae.  The bell of this jellyfish is very thin and wide and resembles a translucent, undulating sheet or lava lamp as the animal moves. They are usually found in Antarctic and near-Antarctic seas but have been spotted in waters near the United Kingdom, at depths of 829 to 1830 meters

UFO sighting

Marine park rocks as well.

The sail rock team headed off to the National marine park a few days ago with a few friends from Padi and oceans below videography team. The idea was to make a short film highlighting the reasons people should try Koh Phangan as a dive and holiday destination. The reason we choose the marine park over sail rock is purely because the whole world knows how good the rock is and not many people know who cool the national park is. The diversity and abundance of coral and fish life are the main attraction of the the 2 dive sites that we use, however the stunning beauty of the islands above water is just another reason this day trip is so popular. This is another short film taken by Russia
