Thank you all for the comments! I was on a dive trip and this was one of the things I really enjoyed doing. The Tarpons were quite amazing! I was really excited that I got to feed them. Florida is really a great place for wildlife!
Hi Nesira add me in facebook ihave some thing to tell you.Abu iskander.
Tarpons are large fish of the genus Megalops; one species is native to the Atlantic, and the other to the Indo-Pacific oceans. They are the only members of the family Megalopidae. that so beautiful i think do not change photo to explain to as how much is great then human.
My first experience with Tarpon was in the Cayman Islands. I was scuba diving into a cave as about 15-20 tarpon were coming out. I assure you, they are massive when seen next to you in the water. Having said that, they are very gentle fish for their size and beautiful to boot.
Hi Nesira & welcome to the community!As we are a wildlife site we request that organisms are the main focus of the spottings, & that humans do not feature as far as possible. I've changed thew order of your photos so the main image is of the fish.
