They travel throughout the coastal semi ocean (Carlson, 2002). Tiger sharks and Hammerhead Sharks have distinct tooth morphology apart from other body features. Their tooth morphology differentiates their eating habits and patters, as well as distinguishing each shark from each other. Although the teeth of these two sharks are similar, their eating habits and patters do differentiate. The Tiger Shark has sharp and serrated teeth.
The Mako shark is a shark that can swim about 60 mph,So if you encounter one there's no outrunning it.The Mako shark is the fastest shark in the ocean. In this essay I will provide information on the Mako shark. I will provide info on what makes it special,where it lives,what it eats. First,What makes the mako shark so special The Mako shark is the fastest shark in the ocean because of its long tail and thin body. Interesting fact,the long finned mako shark’s tail is longer than its body.
The next time you go to the beach, don’t go too far into the ocean. If you see a curved fin, you’ll know that it’s a shark. But not all sharks are scary and dangerous. In fact, only 4 types of sharks are known to attack humans. But, they all have something in common, in that they are all very interesting.
The whale have nostril where is on the top of the head called blowholes. They have small eyes, great pressures and hearing also excellent and extremely intelligent. Most large whales travel in small schools, but some like swim alone or in pairs, they are found in Open Ocean. Pregnancy range from 9.5 to 17 months, the newborn baby is able to swim almost immediately. There are 2 major groups.
Experimental design: • Cruising swimming speeds and filter-feeding of basking sharks. In 100-km area in the western basin of the English Channel, basking sharks were sited and chased. Six basking sharks were measured (4.0–6.5 m body dimension). In addition, basking sharks swimming in the shallow were advancing gradually and at a distance equivalent to the shark of 5 to 7 m, they were followed by positioning the vessel, with the tip of the shark’s snout with the bow in line. Furthermore, the shark speed was found when they swam on straight tracks in the water and in the ground.
What do you know about sharks and whales? Sharks and whales are very different, but have some things in common. What are the differences and similarities between their physical characteristics, habitats, and what they eat? What are the differences and similarities between their physical characteristics? The Sharks can grow up to 16 feet long.
These turtles are capable of diving to astoundingly great depths (only a couple of species, such as sperm whales, are known to dive deeper) due to their leathery ‘shell’, that unlike other terrestrial and sea turtles alike, lacks the presence of scutes. Yet, they are most often found at or near the ocean’s surface. The average sea surface temperature the leatherback turtles were sighted at during their migrations was relatively warm, suggesting that the turtles are more active with the rise in temperature during the summer months (July to September), when sea surface temperature approaches seasonal highs. At-sea field research confirms leatherbacks from multiple nesting colonies aggregate annually off Canada’s Atlantic coast during Summer and Fall months, when water temperatures are highest and food is most plentiful
Lionfish have few, if any, natural predators due to the presence of venomous dorsal, ventral and anal spines (Halstead et al. 1955). Despite this, Maljković et al. (2008) reports that a tiger grouper (Mycteroperca tigris) caught in the Bahamas contained a red lionfish in its stomach. Through further anecdotal confirmation from fishermen, other native grouper species have been observed regularly preying on lionfish.
The Port and Starboard Lightfish prefers to live in waters that are about 6 to 200 meters in depth. This fish can grow up to 8.7 inches and it is plump in size. Also, it can bring that spirit of adventure into your tank. Most Scuba divers have been reported to sight the Port and Starboard Lightfish. However, it can be quite challenging to photograph this fish.
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.
The sharks live along the coasts of Australia, South Africa, California, and the northeastern United States. They are sometimes found in Brazil, the Caribbean, northwestern Africa, Philippines, and Hawaii. Great White Sharks travel in groups. The sharks are carnivores. They eat whales, sea lions, seals, sea turtles, and fish.
Their function is to have the ability to move fast through water to pursue their prey and they have gill slits for abiotic environmental factors. The way sharks reproduce is by having the shark eggs fertilized inside the female. Jellyfish 's adaptations are their stinging cells. It 's their way of getting their food and keeping away from predators. Jellyfishes also use camouflage when it comes to predators.
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
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
The three spined stickleback fish has many unique traits. some of the most notable structural adaptive traits of this specie are the three spines and body armor. The three spines are sharp and located on the back forward of the dorsal fin. The lateral bony plates are located on each side of the body. These structural armors projecting from the back and pelvis can simultaneously flare out when the fish feels threatened as a defense against predatory vertebrates making it difficult for predators to swallow them.
