They use harpoon gun that connects the harpoon to the shark and the barrel. By them doing this every time before the shark attacks the barrels come up. Together with, the music and the editing create great tension it keeps rising and every time the shark attacks he has his own music that brings the film from a 5 to a 10. Without sound editing this movie would not have the Hitchcock horror feel like it does Verna Fields did a great job blending everything together. Verna Fields made sure through her editing style she used would make the shark look as authentic as possible.
Some of the secret also lies within their tail, while running they hold their tail in the air to counterbalance their upright posture and to reduce drag. Part of the secret you can’t even see, these lizards have hip joints that rotate 360 degrees, meaning that they can turn their entire torso around. All of these specialized feature allows the basilisks is run 5 feet per second! That’s an average of running 5 more than 5 miles an hour! 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”).
Rory McAuley, a shark expert with the Department of Fisheries, “asserts that the film Jaws is a seminal point for most media responses and the histrionic reporting reinforces popular images of great whites as man-eating predators” (Francis, 44) McAuley also states that “shark attacks do not need this form of hype because people are interested in[shark attacks] anyway.” (Francis, 44) Before the turn of the twentieth century, anything known about sharks was mostly based on “myths and sea lore.” (Francis, 45) Previous to more recent times, people believed sea monsters and serpents were skulking in the unknown depths of the ocean. When swimming became a popular recreational activity, the average swimmer knew or cared very little about sharks. During the 1900s, people in the United States did not believe that sharks attacked people, it was thought that they were harmless. However, in 1916, the people of America were astounded by a twelve day series of shark attacks in New Jersey that killed four people. The New York Times, and other popular newspapers headlined this event.
In conclusion Blackfish is gives audiences a shocking, aggressive and deeply compelling look into cruel practices of marine parks for decades that will change the way you look at captive/trained killer whales and other animals. In watching this documentary has significantly opened my eyes regarding the brutal treatment and methods of capturing wild animals giving me a greater sympathy for orcas in parks such as SeaWorld. This startling documentary will surprise audiences as Cowperthwaite is unrelenting in showing the fatal consequences of keeping killer whales in captivity while also critiquing of the cruel and immoral practises of
He gets frantic starts making comments like “are you insane?” and “we might as well fry them up now and serve them with chips!” The drop off commonly known for open water which is where fishermen take their boats to fish. This is also the area where Nemo gets taken by a scuba diver. Another example of this is when Marlin and Dory are on the hunt to find Nemo and a whale eats them. While they are in the whale’s mouth you can hear Marlin heavily breathing and he is frantically swimming up and down trying to find a way out. Something so simple as the sound of heavy breathing can completely change the mood of the scene and will make you understand the fear they are going through.
The fertilization is internal due to the male chimaera’s pelvic fins or claspers that they use to grab and hold onto the female chimaera during copulation. It is hard to study the development of the Chimaera due to the deep-water habitat in which they mostly reside. Chimaera reproduce by laying eggs; these eggs are covered in another egg layer and dropped onto the ocean floor. Their diet consists of prey such as crabs, clams, and echinoderms. The Chimaera may also eat other fish if need be.

Rough Draft Gavin Gomez Marine Bio Freytag 4/10/17 When we think of parasites our first thoughts might be about the many sci-fi concepts we see in movies, such as aliens taking over human bodies to take over the world. But in reality there are many parasites out in the world today. One of the most interesting ones that might not be so well known is the Tongue Eating Louse (Cymothoa exigua). The Tongue Eating Louse is an aquatic isopod. They will find it’s way into a fish’s mouth through the gills, suck the blood of the tongue until it wastes away, then attach themselves to the leftover tongue muscles and act as the fish’s new tongue.
A Seaworld, Lindy Donahue, explains that the behaviors Seaworld’s orcas form are of their natural ability. “Natural killer whale behaviors here at Seaworld… you could also see a whale doing that behavior in the wild in order communicate, when you see our whales sliding up and out of the water into the slide out, that’s the same behavior that they do when they’re hunting when they slide out on a beach,” (Donahue). The behaviors seen at Seaworld are primitive so there is absolutely no reason the behaviors could not just as well be studied in the natural habitat of the orcas. The way the orcas slide into the slide out is a hunting technique in the wild, which is dangerous and should be studied where the whales are at a further
The documentary " The Cove" showcases an ethical dilemma in which Richard O'Barry learns the cruelty that dolphins face when in captivity and thus overcomes many barriers to help free the dolphins. Throughout the film, Richard O'Berry and others are involved in various illegal and unethical activities that include lying, spying, destroying property, trespassing and many more. As a former dolphin trainer for one of the most popular shows of the century " Flipper", had brought in a lot of popularity for dolphins. Due to this, many dolphins are used for entertainment purposes especially in sea world where there are more than 100s of dolphins and has posed a greater risk for dolphins. Thus, Richard o Barry believes that he has a moral obligation
I have swum with Caribbean reef sharks in the Bahamas and have seen how beautiful and strong they truly are first hand. Sharks are a vital part to every ecosystem they are in and currently being killed at a rate that they cannot reproduce at. Alpha predators are a necessary component of eco-systems because they keep the populations of every trophic level below them in check. You can compare an eco-system to a skyscraper; you need every single part so the entire building does not fall apart. Sharks have the task of killing the wounded, old, and sick fish in schools to keep the stocks of fish healthy and plentiful.
When nests are found, the biologists enter information on field cards about the number of eggs, species, whether eggs are broken, temperature of the nest and whether the eggs are polarized. If the eggs have progressed to where a shell forms, the yolk has polarized and begun developing into a baby turtle. These eggs are left in the nest, which the team monitors, patrols and tries to protect. The biologists also mark the nests from which the eggs have been removed so that other researchers from the sea turtle protection program know that the nest has already been
SeaWorld has several changes that need to occur in order for the aquatic exhibits to allow the mammals to maintain a healthy lifestyle. NOAA Fisheries Service illustrates that, a number of whales became captured for display before the 1980s in an abundance, which began the start of the orca whale endangered population (Killer Whale 1). Whales can not escape any of the harm endured in captivity or the wild. The act of capturing put the whales at a greater harm than if just left alone. If orcas only got captured when hurt, sick, or wounded then the foundation for captivity would acquire a greater reputation.
In 2013, a documentary called Blackfish was released to the public. This film was produced, written, and directed by a lady named Gabriela Cowperthwaite, as a way to show the world how poorly whales are treated and why they do not belong in captivity. Blackfish also shows how little people really know about the beautiful and highly intelligent orca whale itself. Her film was seen by many, and touched the hearts of a lot people, taking the debate of the topic to a higher level. The movie hits on a lot of main issues about captivity, told by reliable people, along with proven statistics to go along with them.
“It’s very hot and cold at the same time... water spewing back out of the vents’ chimney might reach 700 degrees fahrenheit” (Bliss). This has made deep sea scientists very bewildered, because there are deep sea “yeti crabs” surviving in the harsh environment. They are called yeti crabs because they have hairy legs and chests. Scientists are not sure what they eat, but they believe they eat the bacteria that grows on their hairy legs and chests (Bliss). All of these deep sea animals are very interesting and hold so much
