Hammerhead Sharks protect themselves by swimming away from predators and attacking their predators. The Carnivores can outswim a sea creature and they will lose where the Hammerhead went. Even if another species can go as fast as a hammerhead shark, they will still escape. The hammerhead tries to stay away from where their predator was chasing them for some time and then returns if they need to. While swimming, they have very strong senses that can tell when something is getting near them. Their eyes on the side of their heads help them to look all around without fully turning their body. With the wider view of all around they can counter attack their predators attach. When the hammerhead shark goes to attack anything it will charge at its
Their coloring provides a camouflage to the ocean floor allowing them to hide from their enemies, killer whales and sometimes scuba divers. Hammerheads mostly stay along continental shelves and coastlines, but on occasion they are found in the deep ocean cruising near the surface. Sharks have adapted to living in a wide range of aquatic habitats at various temperatures. While some species inhabit shallow, coastal regions, others live in deep waters, on the ocean floor and in the open ocean. Hammerhead Sharks are exotic and cannot be kept as a house pet, but they can be found in many aquariums.
Focus question: To cull or not to cull great white sharks Great white sharks are the biggest predatory fish in the ocean and they can grow to about 15 feet in size, although larger than 20 feet have been seen. Their name comes from the white underbellies of the sharks and their bodies are designed to blend in with the seabed. The great whites have powerful tails which makes them excellent swimmers that can travel up to 24 km/h. They have many rows of triangular shaped teeth and have a great sense of smell and even their body can sense electromagnetic fields produced by animals. They mainly eat sea lions, small toothed whales and sea turtles.
They are sometimes found in Brazil, the Caribbean, northwestern Africa, Philippines, and Hawaii. Great White Sharks travel in groups. The sharks are carnivores. They eat whales, sea lions, seals, sea turtles, and fish. When a mother has a baby shark it is called a pup.
The Mako shark is a shark that can swim about 60 mph,So if you encounter one there's no outrunning it. The Mako shark is the fastest shark in the ocean. In this essay I will provide information on the Mako shark. I will provide info on what makes it special,where it lives,what it eats.
I am going to tell you all about whale sharks’ adaptations. First, whale sharks diet is that they do not attack They do eat shrimp. Second, there habitat is in the warmer areas. Some have been spotted in the cooler warters. Last there habits they are solitary creatures.
Sharks: The Evolution For roughly 420 million years, the greatest predator of the ocean has been swimming freely around in the water (450 Million Years of Sharks). Fish scurry away escape the rows of teeth in the jaws of a shark. With over 400 species of shark, how did they all get here? (A Timeline of Shark Evolution). Most importantly, how did they get such unique features that help them become the rulers of the ocean?
The largemouth bass have the ability to hide from their prey and provide protection against their predators through the process of abundant vegetation. Their surroundings is usually made up of clears waters so that they can use their vision to identify their prey. The range size in most environments is usually no greater than three meters. (Hannon, 1996; Iguchi and Matsuura, 2004) The largemouth bass is dioeciously, meaning they have separate sexes in reproduction, male and female.
They tirelessly flap this fin 35 times a second, rather like hummingbirds flap their wings. They use their long tail to cling to plants in the ocean, so the current doesn’t blow them away. Since seahorses have no stomach, they have to eat constantly. Generally, they feed on crustaceans, plankton, or shrimp. Oddly, seahorses have thin skin that covers their bones, instead of scales like
BACKGROUND AND RATIONALE A few decades ago the main pressure on populations of giant otter was poaching for the fur industry, but this has decreased favorably, however, now has emerged new anthropogenic pressures, including hunting, usually related to fishermen encounters with otters that could be affecting the effectiveness of their fishing nets; fishermen facing this scenario, tend in many cases to see these predators as competitors for fish resource, stating that these animals are the main causes for the actual reduction of fishing volumes (Guzman, 2005; Gomez & Jorgenson, 1999; Recharte et al, 2008;. Harris et al., 2005; Rosas-Ribeiro et al, 2012). That’s why among the major new threats to populations of P. brasiliensis are both incidental hunting and habitat degradation (Groenendijk, 2015).
Along the coastlines of the U.S.A, Africa and Australia, sharks, especially the Great Whites, have received a bad reputation as very aggressive predators that like to attack and eat human beings. There is a lengthy, tangles and gory relationship “between Carcharodon Carcharias and Homo sapiens”(ReefQuest). The Great White’s notoriety as a ruthless animal of prey is well-earned, yet these marine animals are not, as earlier considered, indiscriminate ‘’eating machines’’. “They are ambush hunters, taking prey by surprise from below or behind”(Encyclopedia of Life). Despite common beliefs about the threat to human beings, they do not attack people without a definite or convincing reason; therefore, the commonly held view of the “man-eater” is erroneous.
How differrent about two kind of large tropical shark,the whale shark and the tiger shark? First of all, the whale shark is light blue and has dots on its body whereas the tiger shark is dark blue and has a stripe pattern on its body. The whale shark has legth 10 metres and weight 9 tonnes whereas the tiger shark has length 4 metres and weight 500 kilograms. So,the whale shark is bigger and heavier than the tiger shark.
They have pectoral fins, dorsal fins, and a vertical tail. The skin of sharks is very rough and made up of millions of sharp scales. Sharks have gills for breathing. What 's can be up to 3,000 pounds. They have a long and wide body, dorsal fins, and a horizontal tail.
Sharks have been existing on the earth for maybe 450 million years and have evolved and adapted to the new changes in their surroundings in order to survive as the years go/went by. They are known to be loners, as they never travel in groups and they are also known as being intelligent creatures that can communicate with each other and what they eat depends on their environment and the adaptations they had to make in order to survive in that specific habitat.
