Istanbul Akvaryum

At first I did not want to write a post about us going to an aquarium. But I took two nice pictures I would like to share with you!

The first one shows Anja with a sand tiger shark. Another visitor was just about to take a photo with his mobile phone, I took the chance to use his permanent strobe light for my own picture, too.

Now look at the second (poor-quality) picture that will probably remind you of the movie “Jaws”. If I had to guess the species, I would right away say that it is a great white shark or maybe a mako considering the small teeth. But actually it is a sand tiger shark again! I am so happy for this picture because you will hardly see a sand tiger with its mouth wide open. Sounds ridiculous because a shark would always pose like that? No! Google for a similar image of this species, I bet you will not find any…! And that is the reason I am proud to be able to share this remarkable snapshot with you – enjoy it!

Underwater park NaturaGart

On one of the last sunny days in October Steffen, my brother Thomas and me drove up to Ibbenbueren in Northern Germany to scuba dive at NaturaGart. NaturaGart is an experienced pond manufacturer who decided to create something extraordinary to awaken interest in their products. The result was an underwater park (basically nothing else but a giant pond) for scuba divers with all the awesome stuff you can imagine: An Indiana-Jones-like sunken temple with large cat statues, caves, canyons, a sunken ship and as if that were not enough they even put fish in the pond. BIG ONES! Six feet long sturgeons, pikes and a lot of smaller fish like carps, breams, perchs, etc.
So who says you can not dive with big fish outdoors in Europe? Definitly my favorite diving spot in our area although or maybe even because it is artifical..!
