The Great White Shark The Great White Sharks, known mostly because of their white underbellies, are one of the most powerful aquatic animals in the world. They can swim at about 25 Miles Per Hour (40 Kilometers per hour) because of their strong muscles and forceful tails. In addition to that, male Great Whites can grow around 11.5 to 13.1 feet long, while females can grow from 14.8 to 16.4 feet long. This paper will demonstrate how Great White Sharks are an important part of their ecosystem, how their diets work and will adequately describe their habitats. As predators in their ecosystem, Great White sharks help maintain the coral reefs and seagrass habitats.
Killer Whales: How they Physiologically Inhabit their Environment Introduction Despite its name, the killer whale (Orcinus Orca) is in fact a dolphin. It is the largest member of the dolphin family and one of the most successful predators of the sea. Due to their body structure they are able to move through the water with ease. They can control their body temperature which is essential for living in cold waters. They are able to control their oxygen levels when diving and use echolocation making them successful hunters.
My favorite wild animal is a Great White Shark. It is the largest predatory fish. Great White Sharks can grow up to 15 to 20 feet long. The sharks can weigh more than 5,000 pounds. The sharks live along the coasts of Australia, South Africa, California, and the northeastern United States.
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.
Killer whales use echolocation for a couple of things. They use it mostly for finding and hunting down food. Orcas also use it if they need to find their way back to their pod, or in a rare instance, if an attacker is approaching. Once a cetacean was once taught to clean its tank by bringing up garbage. He soon found a great way to get lots of fish; he would put the garbage under a rock, tear it to shreds, and bring each individual piece up to the top, getting a fish for every small piece.
Shark nets work Can sharks, the predator of the oceans and humans swim safety together? No they can not, humans and sharks need to be separated and humans protected. I do not want to see anymore lives taken by a shark. The way to stop this is to have shark nets at our swimming beaches. A shark net is a submerged net placed around beaches to reduce sharks attacks.
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.
Graph A represents recordings of a transient killer whale, whereas Graph B represents recordings of a resident killer whale. Both graphs show the changes in each whale type; one documents a drastic change over the course of four hours, while the other one—over the same amount of time—shows a more consistent pattern. A transient killer whale is represented in the first graph because, although a majority of the data shows the orca keeping to the higher points of the ocean, there are still points in which the orca dives to the bottom depth of the ocean, which would make sense due to the fact that this particular type of orca is known for preying on marine mammals. Based on the information in the chart, it could easily be assumed that they dwell closer to the top of the water, but when they are ready to feed, they dive to the
There is always a new bandwagon for false activists, and one of the most popular is the cause of freeing captured killer whales. For some, this is not just the latest fad, but it has been a life long devotion which has been the focus of their passion since the mid twentieth century. These creature are majestic and need to be protected. They were named after this frightening figure because of their brutal reputation in the wild. In Latin, the word Orca can literally be translated to barrel-shaped, thus referring to the large and cylindrical shape of the killer whale 's body.
They are fond all around the world, and they are found near shore lines. Bull sharks have triangle teeth so they cut very well. Bull sharks are one of the most dangers sharks in the world, because they think that suffers are fish so they attack without knowing that there people. They are not that big of shark, but still they will eat anything. They are found along shorelines so that is why they are so dangers.
