We’re not comfortable swimming in any body of water that doesn’t have a bottom we can see. This would truly scare us from swimming in this area!

We’ve seen Jaws. We’ll stay on land for now.

The oceans, rivers, lakes, and all other forms of natural bodies of water are truly beautiful, but in them, there can be animals that are beyond our biggest dreams (or nightmares!). While these photos presented above are truly stunning, we’ll be sticking to pools for now after seeing these images!
