The Humpback Whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) is one of the largest of the Cetaceans. They are fairly well known, even outside of the scientific community. They are identifiable by their dark grey dorsal color, white underbellies, very long pectoral flippers and by their habits of breaching and raising their tales above the water before diving. Their range expands tropical, temperate, and sub polar waters all around the world. They migrate in search of breading grounds and feeding grounds.
The species I will be focusing on is called, "The Chilean Dolphin, which is also known as, "The Black Dolphin. " "This type of dolphin are small cetaceans with a stocky body shape and blunt beakless heads". "They measure about 1.7 m long on average and reach 60 kg in weight". Jefferson, T.A., S.

The three spined stickleback fish has many unique traits. some of the most notable structural adaptive traits of this specie are the three spines and body armor.

Marine biologist also works towards discovering all the unknown plants and animals that live in the depths of the sea. Marine biologist study life in the oceans, they study the process of how marine organisms develop and relate to each other and how they adapt to their environment and interact with it (Marine).Studying this is essential in order for them to be preserved. Usually marine biologists have more specific job titles such as an ichthyologist, cetologist, marine mammal trainer,
