Hammerhead sharks rarely attack humans. Only 17 atacked have happened in the last 450 years but none of the attacks were serious enough to be fatal.The animal i'm going to be comparing the hammerhead to is a bottlenose dolphin. The dolphin doesn't chew its food it just goes down the throat like a snakes. I think that the dolphin would be a better survival than the hammerhead because they live in a lot more places than the hammerhead.Dolphins like to live in the Atlantic and Indian ocean. You can also find them near harbors,lagoons,and bays. If necessary dolphins will go somewhere else to survive as long as the water is 45 degrees and up.Hammerheads like tropical waters which is central pacific and central Atlantic ocean. They also like to be on the coast line. …show more content…
The calf stays with them up to three years learning everything they need to know to survive.With hammerheads they have 15-20 kids but don't take care of them at all the baby sharks just staying a group until they're old enough to live on there own.

The differences between the diving patterns of the resident and transient killer whales are due to their variations in their diet and hunting habits. Resident killer whales generally feed on fish in the near-shore region. They tend to forage for herring or salmon cooperatively in large social groups. Since they move in large groups, it is difficult for them to hunt for food in short intervals.
One of the most interesting features besides the shape of their heads is the fact that they have a 360 degree view, meaning they can see above and below them at the same time. Hammerheads are definitely an interesting mammal. Hammerheads are known to live in warm tropical waters around the world.
Imagine, a 22.5 feet long killer whale that weighs 12,000 pounds, slammed and dragged a person in the water who only weighed 125 pounds. The image is gruesome but that’s what happened to SeaWorld trainer Dawn Brancheau. A respected 40 year old who fought hard to stay alive against the largest orca in captivity. Accordingly to witnesses Tili (short for Tilikium), the Orca went wild during the Dine with Shamu Show, then attacked and killed Dawn. The event shocked everyone because Orcas are usually very friendly but Dawn Brancheau was the third victim of Tilikium.
Originally found in the Atlantic Ocean, the sea lampreys where first discovered in Lake Michigan in 1936. The sea lampreys can be described as jawless parasites with mouths similar to suction disks. They also have very sharp teeth which they us to attach themselves to fish in the water, allowing them to feed on their blood and body fluid for various hours or even weeks. This usually causes visible injures to the bigger fishes and kill smaller fishes. These sea lampreys contribute to the decline in the population of white fish in the great lakes.
The northern snakehead preys on zooplankton, smaller fish, fish larvae, crustaceans, frogs, insects, small reptiles, and even small mammals and birds. In the areas in which the northern snakehead has invaded, native populations are having gradual decreases because of the northern snakehead’s unextinguishable appetite. The most notable features of the northern snakehead fish are its snake-like characteristics. The fish has a long cylindrical body with the blotchy coloration and patterns of a snake.
This beautiful looking fish packs a punch: The fish has venomous spines that deliver an extreme pain that can last for days. In extreme cases, the venom can even cause paralysis. The LIonfish is an apex predator on the reefs using its fins to coral small fish and anything it can fit into it’s mouth into a corner before it strikes quickly swallowing it whole. The lionfish feeds on an array of over 50 species including ecologically and economically important species. ("Lionfish Biology Fact

Article Review The article ´´ Surviving Rescue: A Feminist Reading of Scott O’Dell’s Island of the Blue Dolphins´´ by Diann L. Baecker published in Children’s Literature in Education in 2007 critically analyzes the content and main character of Island of the Blue Dolphins. The analysis includes a feminist approach and focuses on the theme of survival.
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. Leatherwood, and M.A. Webber, Chilean Dolphins, MarineBio Conservation Society, http://marinebio.org/species.asp?id=348.
In the eyes of society and the public, sharks are viewed as ruthless killers Millions upon millions are killed every year, and fear is a major contributor. The reality is that sharks are very complex creatures, and should be treated as such. They are an intricate part of the ocean’s ecosystem and the ecosystem would be completely thrown off without them. We need to realize that these creatures are invaluable, and that we must conserve these animals. If we do not realize this reality, we could lose sharks forever.
For instance, in Marten v. Whale, Marten agreed to buy a plot of land from T in return for a car subject to the condition that his solicitor approved the title to the land. Before any transaction was done, Marten transferred the possession of his car to T who further sold it to Whale who was a bona fide buyer in good faith. It was held that Whale acquired good title as he was unaware that the seller did not have the authority to sell. In addition to sale, if the buyer makes any pledge or mortgage it should be equally effective.
