The Sharkwater is a documentary created by Rob Stewart in 2006. The movie raises an important question about the survival of sharks, one of the most ancient creatures on the planet. It makes people look on these creatures from different point of view. I cannot say I treated sharks only like monstrous characters from films like Jaws or Sharknado before I saw this documentary. But it made to think more about the fate of these animals. Stewart demonstrated sharks are not mindless killing machines; they act like most big predators, who met with humans in their native environment. And these creatures suffer from humans’ actions more than people suffer from their attacks.
Most people have heard the famous shark motif from Jaws at least once in their life, whether they realize it or not. This classic movie from 1975 is iconic for its music, plot, director, and use of camera angles to progress the suspense in the film. This ahead-of-its-time movie set the standard by which all summer blockbusters have since been measured, and became one of the most influential movies in film history. Jaws preys upon a fear that millions of people suppress when they go in the ocean which helped it to become such a successful thriller.
Jaws follows the police chief Brody, along with scientist Hooper and shark hunter Quint, in their attempt to protect the town of Amity against a Great White shark that is terrorising beachgoers. It was adapted from Peter Benchley’s 1974 novel of the same name.
Squidward Tentacles is one of the main characters of the children television cartoons, SpongeBob SquarePants. He is a turquoise-colored, six-legged octopus living in a Moai in Bikini Bottom, the town the show is featuring. As a neighbor of the main character SpongeBob SquarePants and his friend Patrick, Squidward is featured in many of the episodes of the show. It is often seen that Squidward is the grumpy and hot-tempered one in the show, often keeping to himself by staying in his home as well as shutting down his neighbours who constantly play near his home. Despite both SpongeBob and Patrick claiming that Squidward is one of their good friends, the feeling is not mutual.
People say a picture is worth a thousand words. Just about every picture has rhetorical elements incorporated into their design. In this case, the well-crafted poster for Steven Spielberg’s film, Jaws, implements the use of ethos, pathos and logos in an attempt to get its audience to see the film.
Should we keep Orcas in captivity? No! It is not right! Imagine living in a bathtub your whole life. Feeling like you just need so much more room! That is how an Orca feels in captivity! There are a lot of aquariums around the world with Orcas and many other animals that are being held captive. Captivity needs to stop because the Orcas don’t live as long, they take the Orcas away from their natural habitat and families, and most of all they need space to swim.
When I was 10 years old this little movie named Free Willy came out. I fell in love with that movie. I actually cried when Willy jumped over that jetty and freed himself. I wanted Free Willy everything. By this time I haven’t been to Seaworld yet. I begged my mom to take me to Seaworld for my birthday. Seaworld was in San Diego which was two hours away. Anyway, my mom surprised me and took me to Seaworld for my birthday. I was the happiest 10-year-old ever. I was so fucking happy at Seaworld. Everything was just perfect until she took me to see the Shamu show. I’m watching Shamu and I told my mom that Shamu looks like Willy. All my mom had to do was tell me that it wasn’t Willy. That is all she had to do. My mom looked me dead in the eye and
He stuck his hand underwater while holding the shrimp. A giant stingray approached him and took his food. My eyes grew big, and my long, thick, blonde hair starts falling out of the ponytail. Inside the aquarium gates, I crawled slowly toward the stingrays. Although I was excited to be here, I feared confronting these creatures. Sticking my hand in their tanks made me worry if they would bite. “Could they sense my fear like a dog?” “Am I being silly and babyish?” “Surely this is dangerous?” Telling myself these worries only stalled the experience. My eyes then shifted back and forth from the shrimp to the stingray. Plunging my hand underwater was exciting, until I see a huge, black, stingray approaching me. The creature is about to gobble down the food, but then I discarded it, and it scooped it right up from the ground. My mouth opened wide, but then closed quickly, so the water wouldn’t splash into my
We began to head toward the looming cliffs in front of us, where the pools were. Our group leader Amanda explained how we were finding crabs for the octopus, but we barely paid attention as we began to look under just about every movable rock in sight. Annoyingly though, every time somebody found a crab they would almost shriek “I found a crab!!!!”and jump away. However, Auston, a group member, had other plans. He was lifting over rocks that almost qualified to be boulders to find those skittering crabs.
Yesterday in the early morning at around 4am a young pearl diver at the age of 30, was attacked by a Tiger shark. He was out in Roebuck Bay on the coast of Kimberly when this incident happened. The pearling crew confirmed that the victim of the attack was Samuel Jackson, and that they had been unaware of his attack when it happened because he was so far away. The crew of the lugger pulled in his air hose to find no one at the end.
From a very young age, I’ve always been interested in science and its ability to explain natural phenomena, so naturally, I have been attracted to the South Florida Science Museum since birth. It all started with a “mad scientist” themed birthday party I had at the museum in third grade. I remember being fascinated by the exotic oceanic creatures in the touch tank and the experiments, which I thought were magic (because how else could white powder (baking soda) and a clear liquid (vinegar) make a volcano?). I knew that when I grew up, I wanted to work at the science museum so I could experience this level of joy every day.
The Hawaiian Day Octopus is part of the mollusk family, and are closely related to squid, cuttlefish, and the Nautilus. They don’t have shells, but compensate with their extremely intelligent and ability to adjust color immediately to match their surroundings. When they are startled or leave a certain area, they release an ink cloud. The objective of this ink cloud is to distract possible predators, (*kind of like in Mario Kart when your screen gets inked). They can also squeeze themselves into tiny cracks. The average lifespan for a Hawaiian Day Octopus is about 1-3 years. They normally only mate once in their lives. They can be anywhere from ½ inch - 3 feet long. Their main source of food is crabs. * The reason you get inked by your competitors
The Giant Pacific Octopus is a complex creature inside and out. From its appearance to its organs, this 8-legged animal never fails at impressing mankind. This Octopus, being one of the largest, is also one of the most common. Although it is the most common, it is certainly the most extravagant. The Giant Pacific Octopus is a unique creature with complex habitats, physical characteristics, survival methods, and interactions with other organisms.
Blackfish is a documentary that follows a male orca named Tilikum. Tillikum was a happy whale until he was captured and separated from his family. Tillikum has taken several lives of people and it is been disputed many times that is the trainers fault and not pure aggression. Through Tillikum we are shown how orca's that are held captive really feel. Blackfish shows that Orcas that are held captive are traumatized and become unhealthy. Blackfish shows the viewers this by how physically unhealthy the orca's become, how unwilling communication becomes between orca's and the emotional instability they go through. All of these problems are caused by marine parks like SeaWorld creates.
It all started on a summer day, I went to nags head beach with my family. We got a big beach house with my whole family and a few friends. This was about 4 years but it feels like it was just the other day. We went at the very end of the summer. It was still nice and warm outside.
