Hammerhead sharks are found in ecosystems in temperate and tropical oceans. They live in these types of oceans, because if it was a colder climate they would die from hypothermia and soon the species would become extinct. These sharks like to stay in schools up to 100 in numbers. The reason they stick together is there is more protection in numbers and they can kill bigger prey like big great white sharks. Next Hammerhead sharks gets there name for its flat shaped head and some people think it is useless to the shark.
These whales are friendly in the wild and it’s been reported of them saving humans and interacting with them, as “to this day, there is no record of an orca doing any harm to any humans in the wild” (Wise). Orcas actions could not be more different in captivity. In all, violence has become a common yet horrific scene in aquatic parks. The real horror is between these captured creatures. Orcas with different backgrounds and dialects are placed together without much thought about how this could affect them.
They also feed on crabs and clams. The quantity of fish consumed by sea lions depends on their size as well as the abundance of fish in their habitats. Sea lions may use their sensitive whiskers to locate food. They will generally hunt close to the shore as long as their food is sufficient otherwise they move to deeper water looking for food while they become vulnerable to their predators of Killer Sharks and Whales. Sea Lion swallow their food without chewing or tear it into chunks using their sharp teeth.
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. Sharks were presented as timid, smart creatures that did not have deliberate plans to attack people. Annual tolls because of sharks are much less than deaths resulted in meetings with crocodiles, tigers or elephants.
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.
This feat is rather amazing but the basilisk can only run for for about 10 to 20 meters before they slow down enough to sink (“Do the Lizard Walk”). So don’t think that these lizards are living on the surface of the water, they usually only run to escape from predators or to chase prey and they otherwise spend the majority of their time in the trees and rocks close to the water so that they can sprint away at a moment’s notice. However, if they’re escaping from a predator, after running they can swim half a hour underwater without coming up for air (“Do the Lizard
Andre Cole Ricardo Acosta G. English 101 September 22, 2015 Do Killer Whales Actually Belong in Captivity? Ever since wild animals such as Killer Whales have been captured and kept in theme parks and zoos as amusement, there have been issues on whether they should or shouldn’t be kept in captivity. Killer Whales, otherwise commonly referred to as Orcas, have regularly been taken away from the sea at a very young age so they can be trained, raised and kept in theme parks for exhibition. Although theme parks no longer capture whales from the wild, they are still bred in captivity for public display at marine parks such as Sea World (Gorman). Sea World and other theme parks confine whales to tanks that, for them, are about the same size as a
Marine parks in the country like SeaWorld, have orcas in tanks that they live in captivity. They use most of the killer whales for their performances in the pool. We all know that orcas are social, and intelligent creatures, that live in the oceans of the earth. We also know that many scientist are trying to study these animals in captivity where they are in tankes. I think Killer Whales should not be in captivity because, of the injures they can get in their tanks, how they get stressed out and they are better in the wild.
These predators will eat fish, dolphins, turtles, birds, and other sharks. Bull sharks have a specific technique when they stalk. It is called the bump and bite method, and begins with the shark bumping its prey to disorientate and/or kill. They will then impale its lower jaw into its target, and then swing its head side-to-side with its upper jaw to take tissue from its victim(sharks.org). Sometimes, the sharks will hunt in groups.
They rank number one on the scale of largest predatory fish and can grow to lengths of 23 feet and up to 2,400 pounds. Despite having developed a fearsome reputation, they are less common than other shark species. Not much is known on their population size, but it is believed their numbers are decreasing because of hunting and habitat loss. Great white sharks are typically solitary creatures and only come together to mate. However, they have been seen in groups around carcasses.
When the great white shark is a little pup its usually only 5 feet long, when it gets to be and adult it can reach up to 20 feet long. Even an extremely good swimmer can 't out swim the great white shark. The great white shark can smell a tiny drop of blood in 1 billions drops of water. When the great white shark is born it must get away from its mom and dad because if not, the mom and dad might think their pup is something for them to eat. The great white shark is in the waters in, Africa, Australia, China, Japan, and New Zealand.
Lionfish were most likely introduced through the pet trade like the python. Although there is another theory that they were introduced by floating lionfish nest, it is rather unlikely considering that the nearest native range for them is the South pacific and the Indian Ocean around Australia and India. Lionfish were first reported off of Florida 's Atlantic Coast near Dania Beach in 1985. The lionfish 's habitat ranges greatly from 1 foot of water to 300 feet. It usually thrives in reefs but it is also easily found in hard bottom areas, mangroves, seagrass flats, and shipwrecks.
There, they bred her unnaturally young. By the age of eight she had already given birth to two calves. With no mother or matriarchal figure to teach her how to be a mother she rejected both calves. The second died within a year.” Research done by top scientists that specialize in Orca behavior have all came to conclusion that killer whales live in tight-knit families, and this is a similar behavior
