Such adaptations as those of the mantis shrimp cannot simply be left unseen, therefore, it’s best to explore what may be one of the world’s most extraordinary organisms. First and foremost, the evolutionary history of the mantis shrimp is one that has bewildered the scientific community. What creatures could have possibly mutated to create such a distinct aquatic animal? Well, according to Caldwell, a well-known marine biologist and researcher, the mantis shrimp is a mix of over 450 different species (Caldwell)! For example, one animal the mantis shrimp looks very similar to is the lobster.
They had to adapt to living 900 ft below sea water and only coming up at night so they don’t get caught and eaten by predators. They use, their eight arms and two tentacles to capture food and bring to their mouth. They use ink from their ink sack to try and scare away predators. They use fins that are located on their heads to propel themselves while swimming at slow speeds. They use their color changing abilities to attract female squids.
The Sea Anemones attaches to the Hermit Crab 's shell, the crab gives the Sea Anemone a ride along the bottom of the ocean. In return for the free ride the Sea Anemone protects the Hermit Crab from Octopuses and other predators. The Hermit Crab gives protection from starfish and other attackers. As I have explained the relationship of the Hermit Crab and Sea Anemone, they
One of my enjoyable dishes is the lobsters. I like many kinds of lobsters from the warm-water lobsters to the cold-water lobsters. When I travel to any beach, I also hope I can eat all lobster dishes. One of my memorable trips in my life was to Binh Ba island, Viet Nam. I had eaten a delicious tasting there.
Another name for Spanish Dancers is sea rose. They eat sponges, crabs, and anemones. They first started out in the red sea but then moved to other oceans. Their predators are turtles, humans, and crabs. These water animals are fun to look at.
But, they all have something in common, in that they are all very interesting. Baby Sharks, Physical Appearance, and “Family Life” First of all, sharks are surprisingly not that cute as babies. Baby sharks are called pups. Pups are twice the size of your average goldfish, and have one sort-of-sharp set of teeth. Pups can be born in three ways.
There seems to be a jellyfish invasion. Jellyfish travel in swarms. They can release up to 40,000 eggs daily. As they multiply and their numbers get out of control, they are called blooms. Jellyfish eat the larvae and eggs of the anchovies, it affects the fisherman who catch and sell the anchovies because they depend on a successful season of anchovie fishing, there is a jellyfish called the Bereo which eats the Mnemiopsis jellyfish and creates a more blanced ecosystem.
The overpopulating jelly ﬁsh eat the ﬁsh eggs leaving no ﬁsh for the ﬁsherman. But there is one hero, the Bereo jellyﬁsh. The Bereo jellyﬁsh eat the Mnemiopsis jellyﬁsh leng the ﬁsh come back for the ﬁshermen. These are some known facts about the Black Sea and the jellyﬁsh within it! Mnemiopsis may help kill the Bereo jellyﬁsh but the scientist are worried about the Mnemiopsis jelly fish moving to new areas and overpopulating there.
There me and my dad went to look at some tide pools. The tide pools were filled with hermit crabs, sea anemones, and crabs. They were all very cool to observe . The thing that made my trip scientific was that I got to observe sea life up close. I got to see different types of sea life in a variety of different tide pools.
“Hey Jack start throwing the fish in the water and get the seal in the water,” I said. Emma and I were getting our wetsuits on. It was about 7:30 and we were still heading east and we are about 10 miles out from shore. Emma and I decide to get into the shark cage because there were lots of Great Whites and Tiger sharks. I get all the supplies Me and Emma need like a camera, the tracker and flashlights, we then jump into the cage and they lower us down.
The Giant Pacific Octopus is a unique creature with complex habitats, physical characteristics, survival methods, and interactions with other organisms. The Giant Pacific Octopus flourishes in the Pacific Ocean. To be specific, it is most commonly found on the West coast of North America and the East Coast of Asia (Roumanis, 2015).The Benthic part of the ocean about 330 ft. deep is said to be where most live. Like many land animals, this Octopus finds or builds a den. Once a den is found, it will stay its home until it feels threatened or needs food (Kalupa, 2012).
There is a type of fish in aquariums, that when it swims, it looks like a dragon or like a horse, it’s relative.The leafy sea dragon is a type of sea dragon that looks like seaweed when it swims with many brown and yellow leaf shaped spines all over it’s body. It lives on the south coast of austrailia, the only place too see these little guys. The leafy sea dragon almost looks spiny, it could really creep people out with its “leaves” but its not hurtful at all. The leafy seadragon is a mastermind, it camouflouges really welll, is a carnivore, and has a weird way of mating. To begin, the Leafy Sea Dragon is ingenious at what it does.
Boating and snorkeling. Among the Florida Keys lives many different types of species. For instance jellyfish like the Cassiopeas, Cannonball jellies, Sea thimble, moon jelly, comb jelly and the man o’ war which is also known as the bluebottle jellyfish. All of these jellyfish are either really common in the keys or come wandering in in curtain months of the year. There are also two lobsters found in this area, the spiny lobster and the spotted spiny lobster.
“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
When and if Blue World Project begins, it will start at SeaWorld San Diego and then possibly Orlando and San Antonio. SeaWorld should create life-like habitats for all parks and all animals. Build each one to the animal’s necessities. For example, every year beluga whales molt, they lose the top layer of skin, they then scrape their bodies on the sand to rub it off (Ipatenco, n.d.). How is this process allowed or encouraged at SeaWorld when they are kept in a concrete pool?
