Can anyone explain why this fish is not flagged up as dangerous in sharm .?
after some really enjoyable days of snorkeling at Naama bay l decided instead to have a paddle in an area where lots of fish can be seen in the shallows must have been just bellow the knee in water
when WHAM !!!! something struck the back of my ankle that sent a searing pain up my leg
feeling of nausea and the inability to use my leg all in the blink of an eye.
anyway after three hours of plastic surgery to reconnect my achilles heel tendon at south sinai
hospital were the surgeon explianed that, this is the work of the surgeon fish tail ( not a fish bite that l had first though ) it has a retractable blade near the base of the tail that will slicelike a surgeons
knife, and will attack if your in his territory, he also told me he had seen this injury on the leg many many times and no mistake about the culprit.
also there had been an attack on another lady some days earlier in the same area, she also thought it was a fish bite.
even on my way out of the hotel first aid a young guy asked if l had been bitten l replied yes ( at that time l thought I had ) he replied me to......
so why isnt someone making people aware of the danger!!!!!!!!!!
