These marine species inhabit mostly coastal water. They like warmer water and they dwell in anywheres from zero feet all the way down to sixteen thousand feet. They do have many predators so they always have to be on the defense. Some of their predators include sunfish, sea turtles, tuna, butterfish, spiny dogfish, and blue rockfish. Even though jellyfishes do have tentacles that release nematocysts which injects the animal with toxins, it does not stop animals from eating it because some animals are immune to their sting.
This graph shows a more stable recording in the movement of this type of orca; the furthest that the whale in graph B dives is about 75 meters. Resident killer whales are also known to only prefer fish, opposed to the transient killer whale, which targets marine mammals. The graph also supports the fact that resident killer whales are exactly what their name says, they are familiar with the territory they inhabit, which allows them to frequent and move about more, where as with the transient orca, they could only go so far because they navigate and dive according to where their food is. Both graphs are very distinct in terms of figuring out which type of killer whale it depicts; the resident killer whale has a very consistent dive and depth pattern, and is very easy to detect because of the obvious background of its kind—what it preys on as well as where it usually migrates to, where as the transient killer whale has a more spaced out graph, due to the fact that unlike the resident killer whale, it stays more to the coastal areas and would only dive deep to seek out other marine mammals to prey
My favorite wild animal is a Great White Shark. It is the largest predatory fish. Great White Sharks can grow up to 15 to 20 feet long. The sharks can weigh more than 5,000 pounds. The sharks live along the coasts of Australia, South Africa, California, and the northeastern United States.
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. Only why the trainers have close relationships with the whales because they are feeding them fish. All whales in captivity are traumatized. (Blackfish) The campaign is called “Meet the Animals” that involves introducing their
They feed on small crustaceans and fish larvae. Young may be golden brown or pale gray, darkening as they grow older, reaching sexual maturity at 2 years old. The Snakehead Fish is indigenous to the fresh waters of Eastern Asia, however in 2002 they were discovered to have established a population in Maryland. It is believed that they invaded indigenous species
The fish are then eaten very slowly, usually one at time. However Carousel feeding has only been documented in the Norwegian killer whales and some dolphins who live in the ocean.Sharks can also be the part of this whale’s diet. Killer Whales may herd them to the surface and strike them with their tail flukes. Killer whales can induce in sharks and rays
H. Reidi reaches maturity at approximately 3.1 inches (8 cm) in size. The squares in this burlap should be small enough to keep the seahorses in but allow small shrimp and plankton in and out to feed the seahorses. This corral should be positioned over a space of seabed with plenty of seagrass and between a depth of 0-50 meters. Depending on how deep the spot is where you put the net, it will also change the height of the net. I need to point out that this sort of ‘corral’ and raising of Hippocampus reidi did not have any information on the topic that has been officially recorded.
the fish i am using for my experiment is an oranda goldfish. they can reach sizes of upto 10 to 12 inches. they will become ill above 75 degrees (lynn, jennifer).ph should be between 6 to 8 which is the acidity in the water. the goldfish eat worms shrimp vegetables and other things.the oranda goldfish are long lived fish but are delicate fish (jennifer
These birds were listed as endangered on March 11, 1967 and also rely on the basin for crayfish to eat. In addition to birds, plenty of fish can be found in the basin and fishermen frequent the basin in search of Tilapia (3). Tilapia can be found by the hundreds in the basin along with corvina and an occasional striped bass, mullet, croaker, or sargo (3). The endangered pupfish, though rare, also rely on the basin for survival (10). Pupfish are also the only native species in the Salton Sea, thriving in shallow bodies of water with a high salt and heat
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.
