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.
In one final stroke, the orca scoops it into its own mouth, smacks its head on coral reef and kills it. The orca is my favorite animal because of its domineering behavior, majestic appearance, and striking intelligence. With the orca’s incomparable behavior, it is no wonder why these majestic creatures are considered the “top ocean predators” and “kings of the ocean.” Orcas, commonly known as killer whales, live in groups called pods. The members of the
Both a crab and a lobster have different and similar traits. One similar trait is that both animals are invertebrates. It is amazing how a crab sizes is up to 16 inches. While a lobster’s sizes is up to 3.5 feet long. Lobsters are a ten-legged crustacean, and have poor eyesight.
The Humpback Whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) is one of the largest of the Cetaceans. They are fairly well known, even outside of the scientific community. They are identifiable by their dark grey dorsal color, white underbellies, very long pectoral flippers and by their habits of breaching and raising their tales above the water before diving. Their range expands tropical, temperate, and sub polar waters all around the world. They migrate in search of breading grounds and feeding grounds.
The Marine Biome Written by Molly Joyce A horse--like seahorse is eating shrimp with its long snout when the scuttling sound of a 10--legged red crab arises from the sandy ocean floor, its hard shell upsetting the sandy ocean floor. The crab grabs at the seahorse with its claws snapping ferociously. Crabs are one of the few animals that eat seahorses, along with some species of fish and rays. The seahorse, terrified, uses the current to float to a nearby patch of eelgrass. Once there, it vanishes, perfectly camouflaged with the eelgrass.
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.
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.
The Dakosaurus is a very interesting animal and there are a lot more facts about them. The Dakosaurus ' was in the Metriorhynchidae genus. The Dakosaurus ' were carnivorous and they lived in the ocean. They had a unusual way of eating their prey, they would "open their mouths like a suction cup that would suck in many fish and animals". The age expectancy of them dying is unknown.
The first 3 pairs of walking legs are chelate that in addition to its walking function, they help the animals to catch their food as well as in offending and defending. The two rounded, reddish-brown uropods are connected to the paddle-like telson. Together, the uropods and telson form a fan-shaped tail. The shrimp locomotion is performed by the telson and uropods.
A massive fish came soaring out of the water and crashed into your jaw as you were powerboating by the Great Lakes. Was it a shark, or the lochness monster? Nope, it was an one-hundred pound Asian Carp. Asian Carp are examples of Invasive species. Exotic invasive species share many commonalities amongst each other in their extreme ability to arrive, survive, and thrive.
