What does this lizard eat that fuels its fast dash across the water? What features has the basilisk have that allow them to not sink into the water? How does the basilisk defeat gravity? Would it be possible for humans to walk on water? With the combination of specialized features and blazing speed with the right environment, the basilisk earns the nickname of the Jesus Christ lizard.
These predators will eat fish, dolphins, turtles, birds, and other sharks. Bull sharks have a specific technique when they stalk. It is called the bump and bite method, and begins with the shark bumping its prey to disorientate and/or kill. They will then impale its lower jaw into its target, and then swing its head side-to-side with its upper jaw to take tissue from its victim(sharks.org). Sometimes, the sharks will hunt in groups.
The scene with the fishermen on the dock is another example, when the shark rips the dock apart you are still able to see where the shark is because of the attached dock. Parallel editing is used in this scene to show what both fishermen are doing at the same time. You can visualize when the shark sees the fisherman in the water because you can see the dock turn
Or are they just another fish trying to survive how they know how to. The possibility of getting bit by these sharks are as low as can be. At one time there was a reward out for anyone who had proof that they were bitten by a shark (Choi). There is a higher chance of getting struck by lightning or a vending machine falling on you than getting bitten by a shark.
The largemouth bass have the ability to hide from their prey and provide protection against their predators through the process of abundant vegetation. Their surroundings is usually made up of clears waters so that they can use their vision to identify their prey. The range size in most environments is usually no greater than three meters. (Hannon, 1996; Iguchi and Matsuura, 2004) The largemouth bass is dioeciously, meaning they have separate sexes in reproduction, male and female.
Why is killing sharks bad? Sharks play a vital role in the oceans in a way that the average fish does not. Most sharks serve as top predators at the marine food pyramid, and so play a critical role in ocean ecosystems. Directly or indirectly they regulate the natural balance of these ecosystems, at all levels, and so are an integral part of them.
During the observation scientists observe sharks and records their motions and thinking. Scientists use acoustic monitors to track their every movement such as their depth in the ocean, living temperature space, and location. They Identified Hammer sharks using two types of pop up satellite archival tags. Scientist wanted to know where they live, feed, and go. Scientists were able to follow a Hammerhead shark, and saw all of these things that they were curious about.
This beautiful looking fish packs a punch: The fish has venomous spines that deliver an extreme pain that can last for days. In extreme cases, the venom can even cause paralysis. The LIonfish is an apex predator on the reefs using its fins to coral small fish and anything it can fit into it’s mouth into a corner before it strikes quickly swallowing it whole. The lionfish feeds on an array of over 50 species including ecologically and economically important species. ("Lionfish Biology Fact
Jellyfish have external reproduction, where they release the egg and the sperm into the water to meet each other. As they mature the fertilized eggs reproduce asexually by cloning themselves. The methods used by the earthworms and jellyfish both offer an opportunity for predators to eat the offspring before they can
These organisms provide nutrients for other organisms, mainly zooplankton such as krill and copepods. The zooplankton, in turn, provide nutrients for other low-trophic-level organisms, such as fish and baleen whales. This chain is thought to have two main effects on animal aggregations: (1) the fecal plumes are thought to attract large numbers of zooplankton which, in turn, attract large numbers of higher level organisms and (2) this aggregation of prey animals are thought to reinforce aggregating behavior and cooperative foraging in
Hope Jahren’s Lab Girl is a memoir divided into three parts about her role as a scientist, friend, mother, and lover. In the book, Jahren gives intimate details into her childhood, years as a student, professor in three separate universities, wife to a brilliant mathematician and as a mother to a boy. Sometimes the facts about her life transition seamlessly into a narrative about botany, usually revolving around the secret life of plants of all different types. Whether she is describing the early years and patient hope of the seedling, the restlessness of tree awaiting death, or the evolved spine of an ingenious cactus, Jahren relates the plants’ internal desires and activity in a break takingly human way throughout the book.
Hammerhead sharks are carnivore because they eat meat much as fish species. They will eat fish to regain their energy because they use most of it swimming. They also use energy by using their sense of smell that allows them to detect blood. When a shark reaches a point when they can’t use any more energy, they will go deep into the ocean and stay there. Their preys won’t spot them as easily when they are deep in the ocean.
