Evolution Domain: Eukarya Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Class: Actinopterygii Order: Perciformes Family: Centrarchidae Genus: Micropterus Species: salmoides The normal weight of the largemouth is one kilogram. On the other hand, certain largemouth basses have gotten to be over ten kilograms in weight. The males usually does not get longer than 40 center meters, while the females can get to be 56 center meters long. The largemouth bass has a big, but somewhat slanted mouth. Its body is slim and egg-shaped shaped in cross section.
“The Galapagos fur seals are one of 16 species of marine mammals” (www.eoearth.org) in the eared seal family that includes sea lions. The semi-aquatic family is known as pinnipeds, or fin-footed can live on both land and in water. These seals are the smallest of the pinnipeds. Otariidae also known as eared seals, are different form other seals, because they have small external earflaps and back flippers
Description The Hammerhead shark is a long, odd looking animal. on average, they 11.5 feet long, and weigh about 1,000 pounds. The odd shaped head they have is called a cephalofoil, and it allows for 360o vision. The Hammerhead shark has very different physical features from most other sharks. Habitat The Hammerhead shark can be found throughout various places globally, and usually lives in warm tropical and coastal waters along continental shelves.
The trichechus most commonly known as the manatee is a large aquatic mammal with ancestors dating back to 45 million years. The modern manatee has been found in fossil evidence to have existed for at least 1 million years. Living in shallow bodies of fresh and saltwater the manatee is mostly a gentle solitary animal, with highly developed social skills. While different variations of the manatee live across the world, all manatees are slow moving herbivores with very few natural predators. While the manatees are rather slow animals they are agile and can easily maneuver underwater.
They live in shallow water in the northern pacific for ultimate food sources and access to land. Sea otters diet is mostly small marine life.Otters eat slow-moving fish, crabs, abalone, sea urchins, clams, mussels, and snails. They can also eat 25% to 30% of their weight. A large male may eat as much as 25 lb. of food daily.
*They have relatively low metabolic rates. *All turtles have a bony shell consisting of (i) a carapace formed from costal bones with fused ribs, neural bones with fused thoracic vertebrae, and peripheral bones; (ii) a plastron consisting of interclavicle, clavicle, and three to five additional pairs of dermal bones sutured together. *The carapace and plastron are firmly united along their edges, but have apertures for the head, tail, and fore and hind limbs. *The limbs and tail can almost always be withdrawn at will under the shelter of the thoracico-abdominal case
While most Cnidarians live in the water, I have chosen one that lives only in the larval stage underwater. It is called the Velella, also known as a Sail by Wind, and it tends to float atop the water instead. The velella is different from most cnidarians in the way that it floats. It is sometimes thought of as being a mini “portuguese man-of-war,” but this description is incorrect because the “man-of-war” is actually a colony of cnidarians while the velella is a single polyp. Like most cnidarians, it has radial symmetry, which means that no matter which way you cut it in half, when looking from the top, you should get two equal pieces.
Yellowtail is a highly prized game fish. Description: The species are long with streamlined bodies of greenly blue color on the dorsal surface shading to silvery white beneath. Fish fins are yellowish. The Yellowtail Kingfish can grow up to 2.5 m as total length and can weigh up to 70 kg with records close to 100 kg. However, most caught off piers are fish under 5 kg in weight.
Migrating Manatees. Some description about the manatee are, manatees are big and gray, they are very large and they weigh 800 to 1200 pound, they are 10 feet long and algae grows on there back. Manatee habitats are very interesting. Manatees live in north american east coast, shallow slow moving rivers, saltwater bays, canals, and the coastal areas. They eat seagrass and freshwater vegetation.
Ecology and behaviour The southern right whale (Eubalaena australis) is a medium to large baleen whale, reaching a maximum length of 17.5m. Colour patterning is variable, ranging from black to grey-brown (Harcourt et al. 2012). Distinguishing features include a rotund body with no dorsal fin and callosities (caused by colonised cyamids, small crustaceans, on keratinised skin patches) on the head (Harcourt et al. 2012).
