A few years back, in the southern-most part of the Red Sea, lived two common enemies. One was a Reef shark by the name of Luci. Other members of his clan mockingly called him Lucifer, since his beady eyes and sharp teeth were fit for the devil himself. Luci 's natural born enemy was a small Angelfish by the name of Gabriel. Gabriel was just as you might expect an angelfish to be, timid and sweet.
The tide pools were filled with hermit crabs, sea anemones, and crabs. They were all very cool to observe . The thing that made my trip scientific was that I got to observe sea life up close. I got to see different types of sea life in a variety of different tide pools. In the picture above you can see one of the many crabs me and my dad saw in a tide pool.
One of them was a crab, there are many different kinds of crabs such as a king crab and a coconut crab. I am not sure what kind of crab the one i saw was. My friend Levi’s dad Joe tried to catch it and it pinched his finger and made it bleed. After that he kept trying to catch it and he finally succeeded.
He told me that his main predators are Great White Sharks, Killer Whales, Steller Sea Lions, and humans (Seal Conservation Society, 2011). Jared continued to say that Great White Sharks, Killer Whales, Steller Sea Lions kill them for food, and so do humans, but humans also do it just for their own gain, because they do not absolutely have to consume Northern Fur
Another name for Spanish Dancers is sea rose. They eat sponges, crabs, and anemones. They first started out in the red sea but then moved to other oceans. Their predators are turtles, humans, and crabs. These water animals are fun to look at.
They have also theorized that the crabs “scoop up the bacteria” and consume it (Bliss). So it is like they are eating their own excrement. How and what these animals eat are all different and makes them the species that they are which provides the means for them to adapt and evolve to their
Sea turtles are found all around the world, the environment that they live in is tropical and subtropical. They go to the land to warm up, unlike other sea turtles. They depend on the temperature of the sand because they use the sand/
This happens when they become overly stressed especially when exposed to warmer than normal temperature and excessive sunlight” (“Coral Bleaching- Essential Facts”). Although the coloring of the coral may not seem too important, it is. The Great Barrier Reef is home to more than “1,500 species of fish, 411 types of hard coral, one- third of the world’s soft coral, 134 species of sharks and rays, six of the world’s seven species of threatened marine turtles, and more than 30 species of marine mammals” (“Australia’s Great Barrier Reef under Threat”). The coloring of the fish species correlates with the coloring of the corals in terms of survival for the species. Gradually, certain species of the marine life that live in the Great Barrier Reef have adapted to the colors of the reefs to camouflage themselves which ultimately helps them survive and decrease the threat of predators.
Picture this, a Hermit Crab and Sea Anemone, they help each other, the Hermit Crab uses pinchers to tap the Sea Anemones. The Sea Anemones attaches to the Hermit Crab 's shell, the crab gives the Sea Anemone a ride along the bottom of the ocean. In return for the free ride the Sea Anemone protects the Hermit Crab from Octopuses and other predators. The Hermit Crab gives protection from starfish and other attackers. As I have explained the relationship of the Hermit Crab and Sea Anemone, they
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.
Mexico is home to more surviving sea turtles than any country in the world, so its citizens and businesses bear an especially powerful incentive to safeguard the reptiles because they 're good for the planet, good for Mexico and good
By creating experimental beach scenarios, negative and standard, Karpanty, et al, increased and decreased the amount of surface eggs to compare the availability and sufficiency to refuel Red Knots in the Delaware Bay area. They were able to determine that horseshoe crab eggs were sufficient and that Red Knots were not excluded when aggressive shorebirds also foraged on the experimental beach areas. The feeding times were mainly during the day and until high tide. It was observed that Red Knots foraged in high-density areas and along the wrack line, where horseshoe crab eggs were visible and easily accessible. Once that area was depleted, the Red Knots would move on to other horseshoe crab nesting areas.
Each animal enclosure needs to be updated to meet the specific necessities of each animal. One risk posed by the current habitat for killer whales, is how long these animals spend at the surface in captivity. The whales can become sun burned and two killer whales have died from being bitten by a mosquito (Lewis, 2013). This is unheard of in the wild because the killer whales are able to swim away from pests such as mosquitos. By having larger and deeper habitats, killer whales could swim away or dive deep to
He stuck his hand underwater while holding the shrimp. A giant stingray approached him and took his food. My eyes grew big, and my long, thick, blonde hair starts falling out of the ponytail. Inside the aquarium gates, I crawled slowly toward the stingrays. Although I was excited to be here, I feared confronting these creatures.
