Here are some of the main reason of why sharks are getting hunted. Not everybody is scared of sharks but the people that are don’t like to swim in the same waters as them or go out on a boat. So ever since then people have been killing sharks so that the waters would be safer to swim in. Barnett said “ The ocean is a domain of the sharks and we go there with risk always”. Which is true every were you go you are at risk and it is not safe for anybody to swim with sharks.
(Paragraph 7), “Scientists have not found any way of eliminating invasive constrictor snakes once they become established in the wild.” The scientists want to be able to educate people about these snakes, so they can find out how to solve the problem. The invasive Burmese pythons, are negatively impacting the population of other animals in the Everglades. These pythons do not belong in Florida. With them around, Florida’s small mammals and birds living in the Everglades will be gone for good. There are people trying to bring attention the problem, but it’s not helping the python population go down at all.
They knew Tilikum was dangerous because in his profile information it states, “Sometimes lunging toward control trainer” 70 plus killer whale trainer accidents but no one talks about them.

According to Fredrick Humber, a marine sciences professor at University of South Alabama, the ocean-bottom sampling reveled that migrating rays are eating all adult scallops which prompted the state to close bay scallop fishery in 2004. In addition, because of the dense population of cownose rays, scientists are worried the rays will begin targeting other species. (Peterson 2015). The information provided by the journal articles did contribute to the take home message. This topic has made me think differently because usually sharks are looked upon as the predator by humans; however, in this scenario they are the prey.
The tongue biters have seven legs, with claws on each one that makes them all the more strong and sharp. This species lives wide-range from seaweed, to trenches and even in back gardens. I learned that the job of this insect is to latch onto a host and crush and tear at their flesh which over time eventually kills that host. Tammy Horton explains that when a marine Biologist finds a species like this it is a joy feeling because they are so rare. As oppose to a couple buying fish to eat and coming home finding a gross parasite latched to the fish’s tongue isn’t the best site to see and usually grosses most people out.
With the snake’s owner not knowing what they were getting into when the snakes got too big they released the snakes to the wild.

As if removing these animals from their natural environment was not enough, these killer whales which have an understandably predatory nature been vilified in the public for unfortunate incident which have taking place at different aquariums throughout the world. Gruesome accidents and tragic deaths demonstrate the fact that wild animals do not belong in captivity. They are maligned for these actions which are simply part of their feral nature. These wolves of the sea deserve to be flipping as close to nature as possible. They should be migrating and hunting with large family pods instead of sitting alone in comparably small tanks.
