Great White sharks eat fish, and as they grow start to eat seals and walrus. Tiger sharks will eat anything and everything, such as dead animals, coal, tires, and clothes. Shark habitats are found in seas and oceans all over the world. Bull sharks have been seen swimming in lakes and rivers. Sharks prefer to live in warm waters near the coast.
The largemouth bass reproduces in the spring. To the largemouth basses spring time is typically when the gets to be around sixty degrees Fahrenheit. The females lay their eggs in the nest that the males have created and leave the males there to guard it. The females generally lay about 3,000 eggs per nest, but research shows that some of them have laid up to 6,000. (Becker,
As a result of sharks’ fins and teeth hunting, the number of these animals has significantly decreased. White sharks are often caught in large tuna nets, while hunting on them, or can also get trapped in special complex nettings that protect beaches. The English shark protection organization “Shark Trust” confirms that up to 73 million sharks are killed in targeted hunts for fins annually. Combining all the data worldwide- 200 million sharks are killed around the world each year. This is a great paradox because the number of humans killed by sharks compared to these numbers is insignificant.
Sea otters have couple of normal predators in the ocean because of their vast size. Those sea otters that live further south are essentially gone after by the considerable white shark and those sea otters that occupy more northern areas of the Pacific, are gone after by executioner whales. People are one of the sea
The Great Hammerhead Shark has many physical attributions that make the species unique to other sharks. Perhaps its most well-known anatomical feature, the flat and t-shaped cephalophoil, aids the Great Hammerhead in catching prey. Ampullae of Lorenzini on the hammer-shaped head sense hidden prey, which especially benefits the hunting of stingrays. The variations within the cephalophoils differentiate hammerheads from each other. In addition, wide-set eyes give The Great Hammerhead shark a greater, more enhanced range of sight.
Most food which reaches the deep sea is composed of ditritus; the decaying remains of plants , algae, microbes and other organisms. This ditritus is eaten by scavengers such as sea cucumbers. Occassionally a carcas of a large animal such as a whale might sink down to the deep sea and is eaten by species such as hagfish. however not frequently enough to sustain life. (Yancy, 2011) No sunlight can penetrate through the 1000 metres of water, rendering photosynthesis impossible, and so there is no plant life.
In addition, pushing the ship until the engine blows up now Quint, Matt Harper and Chief Brody are stuck on a boat in the middle of the ocean. The realism of that scene was great we finally see the teeth of the shark and how massive the shark actually is. In Australia two known shark videographers Ron and Valerie Taylor filmed all of the extra footage for the film. Uniquely, bringing another layer of Authenticity to the film. For example, another great scene was when they used the Jaws theme to build suspense, when Matt Harper decides to build the cage and decides to stick poison into the shark to finally end this and the shark attacks the cage.
Cephalopoda Introduction: Invertebrate animals which belong to mollusks which means “head foot” and characterized by large head and modified feet. This group includes octopuses, squid, cuttlefish and nautiluses. Members of cephalopods are characterized by their ability to quick change their color as well as changing the texture and shape of their bodies as a means of camouflage. Today there are about 800 living marine species of cephalopods which are found in all of the world’s oceans, from the tropics to the near freezing water at the poles. Description: The name cephalopods which means head-armed were given this name because these animals have several arms around their protruding mouth.
Leather Back Turtle and its correlation with Human’s Food and Water Resourcing Activities. Species Description Weight: Adult: up to 2,000 pounds (900 kg) Hatchling: 1.5-2 ounces (40-50 g) Length: Adult: 6.5 feet (2 m) Hatchling: 2-3 inches (50-75 cm) Appearance: primarily black shell with pinkish-white coloring on their belly Lifespan: unknown Diet: soft-bodied animals, such as jellyfish and scalps, and pyro0somes Behavior: females lay clutches of approximately 100 eggs several times during a nesting season, typically at 8-12 day intervals. Life Cycle Juvenile leatherbacks may remain in tropical waters warmer than 26°C, near the coast, until they exceed 100cm in curved carapace length. Adults are pelagic and live in the open ocean, sometimes
This has caused the majority of sea turtles to be endangered. As you can clearly see, this has put a huge effect on sea turtle’s lives. Although many of them have been killed, they aren’t the only ones affected by this. Many other fish spices have been hit. Salmon sales have gone down because they’ve been dying.
The Mako shark species is about to go endangered and we need to protect them. Mako shark 's body is shaped to swim fast. They have a long slim body to allow the mako shark to swim up to 40 mile per hour(Sharks World, 2015). Their back ranges from a dark blue to a purple with a white belly. Male mature to be 2 meters maximum, females mature to be 2.6 to 4 meters long(Carson, 2015).
Sharks have the task of killing the wounded, old, and sick fish in schools to keep the stocks of fish healthy and plentiful. Andy Dehart, Discovery Channel Shark Advisor, spoke about the North Carolina shark over fishing problem. The shark populations on the East Coast were extremely over-fished which lead to the over population of sting rays, a main food-stock for sharks. The stingrays in turn decimated the shellfish populations on the East Coast, leading to calm and shellfish shortages. This shows that sharks are necessary for every eco-system and their destruction affects us in more ways then we can imagine.
All About the Grouper The grouper is basically a kind of fish under the family of sea creatures that include the sea bass. They have a sort of scary looking build, which makes them popular for use by artists in some TV cartoon series. So, what does the grouper exactly look like? Picture this: a fat body, a huge mouth, and an overall aura that will basically tell everybody who will see them that they are not worth this grouper 's time and attention. In short, they look like very bossy creatures, but their bodies are just too heavy for them to move for long distances.
Baby gray whales can consume as much as 300 gallons of milk per day during their first year of birth. 44. Once a hunted and endangered species the gray whale is now considered one of the most popular marine mammals to those who participating in the whale watching industry. 45. A fully grown gray whale can weigh just as much or more than 5 adult elephants.
The Great White Shark The Great White Sharks, known mostly because of their white underbellies, are one of the most powerful aquatic animals in the world. They can swim at about 25 Miles Per Hour (40 Kilometers per hour) because of their strong muscles and forceful tails. In addition to that, male Great Whites can grow around 11.5 to 13.1 feet long, while females can grow from 14.8 to 16.4 feet long. This paper will demonstrate how Great White Sharks are an important part of their ecosystem, how their diets work and will adequately describe their habitats. As predators in their ecosystem, Great White sharks help maintain the coral reefs and seagrass habitats.
