The semi-aquatic family is known as pinnipeds, or fin-footed can live on both land and in water. These seals are the smallest of the pinnipeds. Otariidae also known as eared seals, are different form other seals, because they have small external earflaps and back flippers
However the expected lifespan of one is about 15 years. If the largemouth bass is in captivity, they usually get to be about 11 years old. (Boschung, et al., 2004) They usually prefer to live in shallow that is no deeper than three meters. Although sometimes you may find some of them living in the deeper part of the water.
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.
After the movie Jaws came out people thought it would be macho to go and hunt sharks. There would be killing tournaments to see who could get the biggest shark. The biggest shark that was ever caught was a 20 foot long great white shark. People are also overfishing sharks. There is a huge problem with finning for shark steaks or shark fin soup.
Leopard geckos have many interesting and unique characteristics and traits that help them survive in their environment. The leopard gecko is a member of the reptile taxon in the Animal Kingdom. Reptiles are egg-laying, cold-blooded, and have a backbone. Did you know that a leopard gecko can be almost a foot long?! In this paper you will learn about the leopard gecko’s environment, characteristics, traits, and functions.
Argued, “ orcas are held in comparatively tiny, shallow concrete tubs, only one percent of their natural home ranges” (AWI). Like most sea mammals, “ orcas are highly social and live in matrilineal pods that can be as large as forty individuals” (AWI). Just like the elephant situation, orcas need a wide range of habitat and the access to be social with close herds/pods. Yet unfortunately “if orcas do not meet certain needs it can lead to chance of early death, and very aberrant behavior” (AWI). If it is conservations that take in animals to better them, it is up to conservations to meet the needs of their species.
And they swim in groups called pods. The whales are highly intelligent and use sounds to communicate with each other to find their way. But when people take and capture the whales to put them in captivity, they break apart the groups and, the whales get separated from their group or their family. The text also states, “More than 210 belugas, including 31 in the United States, live in aquariums and zoos around the world.
What You Have to Know about Adelie Penguin Facts Adelie penguin lives in Antarctic continent, and few of them live in coastal islands. They spend winter in the lake near Antarctic ice. Adelies eat small water organism like gravel, but they also eat fish and squid. They have been known for their great dive talent because they can dive for5 feet or around 175 meter to find the source of it although they usually hunt their food in the shallow waters at half of that depth.
The weight average of rainbow trout is about 3kg while individuals of rainbow trout can reach much heavier weights. Feeding habits: Rainbow trout are predators with varied diets depending on their life stages and availability of their natural diets. When they are young, rainbow trout will feed on small organisms such as zooplankton, and as they grow they feed on larval, pupal and adult forms of aquatic insects. They also eat fish eggs, small fish, crustaceans, mollusks, and insects. In vegetated habitats, rainbow trout often have the opportunity to eat terrestrial insects that fall into the water such as ants, beetles, and crickets.
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
The monk seals are a rare tropical animal that lives on the Caribbean and the Hawaiian Islands. Monk seals live in warm waters and spend about two-thirds of their time at sea. However, they also spend time on land as they breed and carry-out their “pups.” Coral reefs provide the seal as a great habitat for them to dive, swim, and for food such as fish. It may seem that monk seals spend most of their time at sea, but they also love to rest on shore on the beaches.
My animal is the OP Narwhal Dragon. It has the long slender body and wings of a dragon with the head and tail of a cartoon narwhal from the narwhal song. It lives in the Arctic Ocean, swimming around in the ocean itself and also swims above the ocean. It is a carnivore with a diet consisting mostly of fish with the occasional polar bear. Its adaptations are its ability to breathe fire, its extreme intelligence, its hypnotic skills, and its amazing razor-sharp horn which blasts beams of pure energy.
There isn't a definite answer to how Levela were formed or where they came from. Theories state they are prehistoric creatures that continue to survive in the deserts by eating smaller live animals such as lizards and rabbits, and sometimes big animals such as sheep from time to time if they feel up for the challenge. Levela focus on small animals as their feet are made for running at high speeds and not for tearing into large prey. The small claws aid in keeping speed, digging far enough into the sand so they can spring back onto the back part of their large feet and move forward. They are nocturnal animals, hunting primarily at night using their large ears to listen to movements and detect their prey.
Common bottlenose dolphins and killer whales are the most well-known types of the dolphin on Earth. Both of them are warm-blooded marine mammals belonging to the Delphinidae family. The scientific name of the common bottlenose dolphin is Tursiops truncatus, which means “dolphinlike”, and the killer whale is Orcinus orca, which means “of the kingdom of the dead”. This name is likely a reference to killer whales’ outstanding hunting skill. In Latin, orca means "large-bellied pot or jar".
