The Striped Pyjama Squid The striped pyjama squid is a very poisonous cephalopods out of the few that wander across the ocean bottom of indo- Pacific Oceans. Lots of scientists think that the black stripes on the Pyjama squid gives away its venomous attributes eliminating many predators. Also when they turn a dark purple with black stripes it give away its venomous attributes. Even though the name says squid ,The Striped Pyjama Squid is actually a species of cuttlefish, a multifaceted animal that can often change its appearance, has an central shell, eight arms and two feeding tentacles. The Striped Pyjama Squid compact and rounded appearance has inspired other people to commonly refer to it as the striped dumpling squid.
Pets are to be loving and caring and not like these killing machines. In fact, Burmese pythons are making a negative impact on the ecosystem. In Andrew ng’s article titled Florida’s Python Hunt, he states that the python has “no natural predators, these eating machines appear to be wiping out huge numbers of opossums, raccoons, and bob cats as well as many bird species.” This means that these snakes are taking out smaller animals. This is extremely important because they can drive animals toward extinction which could end up terribly for
The Great Hammerhead Shark There are many animals in the world that are endangered. One of them is the Great hammerhead shark . These sharks have flat, T-shaped heads that make them stand out from other sharks.They are long and flat in order to aid in the catching of prey. The eyes of these sharks are wide-set. We need to protect the great hammerhead shark because it is being poached and there are only 9 Species of hammerhead shark .
Which one do you fear: Octopuses or Squids? The seven oceans contain thousands of organisms, which create an aquatic ecosystem. Some of these organisms are peaceful friends, but some are ruthless killers. Throughout the history of marine species, octopuses and squids have been described as monstrous creatures, which appear as homogeneous species, but they contrast with each other. Sharing various comparable traits and physical features, made it confusing for humans to organize them in the classification system.
Jared said that he mostly ate fish, squid, and other marine invertebrates, which he explained to me were marine animals without vertebrae or spines. 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
These seabirds eat during the night by sitting on the water and catching smaller prey with their bills. (Ornithology) These seabirds, however, have been affected by plastic being left in the ocean and on the ground. Since the Laysan Albatross eats their food from the top of the water, they usually mistake their food for pieces of plastic and end up being harmed in the process. The plastic that these seabirds eat are hard for them to digest which causes it to become stuck inside of the bird’s body which starves them and kills them in the process. Also the Laysan Albatross can pass this plastic on to their chicks, mistaking it for food which then kills the chicks as well due to the plastic being literally impossible to digest.
While Diamond’s book gives a great insight into this concept, it doesn’t come without its plot holes. It only answers why some parts of the world are less fortunate than others, but Guatemala and Venezuela are in very similar climates with similar access to an ocean, yet people in Venezuela are starving to death, they are eating their own pets, eating bark off of trees. On the other hand, Guatemala may not be a world superpower, but it is actually a business central, there are many successful companies being run, people have colleges to choose from, restaurants
This is true because in the text he says "Some examples are well known-- the 400 species of birds that migrate at night in North America, the sea turtles that come ashore to lay their eggs--and some are not, such as the bats that save American farmers billions in pest control and the moths that pollinate 80% of the world's pollution." He uses this to explain on how even creatures depend on the darkness at night, they migrate, they do their "job" as a creature, and help nature. With no darkness around to help them, they wouldn't be able to do any of these things. He also states that "Computer images of the United States at night, based on NASA photographs, show that what was very dark country as recently as the 1950's is now nearly covered with a blanket of light." This explains on how over the years the world has been losing more and more sunlight in most of the world, and that some of the world either doesn't get sunlight, or barely gets enough darkness.
Bass are a predatory fish, this means that they have to eat other living animals to survive. To hunt, bass will hide in structure, such as a submerged log, or some grass and ambush their prey. When their prey swims by the fish will swim out quickly and eat the food. Bass will eat anything that swims, they will eat minnows, crawfish, frogs,worms and even mice and ducklings that fall into the water. Bass will also eat other fish and sometimes lizards that fall into the water.
Entertainment, Profit, and Educational Effects of Seaworld Although, as “Blackfish” states, the way that Seaworld is imprisoning orcas to use for entertainment and profit is harmful, studying the orcas for education is a reasonable activity, but only in their natural habitat. The organization, Seaworld, is holding and training whales to put on shows for the entertainment of their guests and the profit for themselves. Seaworld holding orcas is harmful to both the trainers and the whales in many ways. They also tend to use them for the education of and advancement for society. However, much of this studying could be studied in the wild.
The three main elements are the hunt, pets and the danger to the Florida everglades. Meanwhile, people have had these carnivores as pets. The people that has this animal as a pet like them because of their skin pattern design. According to the text,” although they have no venom the have other ways to killing their prey”. Then the people released the Burmese python as pets in to the wild of their growth rate.
Then, there are some like the yeti crabs, which have just confused scientists with how they survive in the hydrothermal vents near Antarctica. Though some people see these just as deep sea animals, they are very interesting and provide so much information. Zombie worms live on the bottom of the California coast and they thrive on whale bones. These are bones “which drift down to the ocean floor and contain a rich source of nutrients” (Ennis). Although the worms extract the nutrients from the whale bones, scientists did not know how, due to their lack of “body parts for physically drilling into the hard material” and absence of a mouth and gut (Ennis).
The third layer of the ocean that the beluga falls through is called the Bathypelagic Zone also known as the "Midnight Zone". There is very few animals that would be able to eat what is left of the beluga whale but the nutrients still gets to them and it makes the water rich. Many creatures down here must survive of carcasses nutrients that falls from he surface and that is why it 's not a bad thing when beluga whales die from natural things. The fourth layer of ocean that the nutrients pas through is the Abyssopelagic Zone or other wise know as the "Abyssal Plain". Many physical parts of the beluga are gone but yet the nutrients are still falling down and its giving animals down there a rich environment to
How is this process allowed or encouraged at SeaWorld when they are kept in a concrete pool? 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.
