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.
In this deep abyss, there lives fish we have come to call the Chimaera. These fish are found in the deep water where they hunt with their tooth plates which they use to grid into hard bodied prey. Today I will be giving you some information on Chimaeras to increase your knowledge on them and to understand
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.
Most of the members are gray in color and have some greenish tint with white bellies. This color balance enables the sharks to perfectly blend with the ocean since a prey viewing from the bottom will not see it sneaking in for a meal. The cephalofoil laterally project outwards thus giving the shark the hammerhead shape and, as a sensory organ, ability to easily notice electric field created by prey or threat from miles away. All the hammerhead sharks have excessively small mouths compared to other sharks located at the bottom of the cephalofoil with serrated triangular teeth. Hammerheads have wide-set eyes on the outer edges of the hammer adapted to give a wider and better visual range compared to other sharks.
The northern snakehead preys on zooplankton, smaller fish, fish larvae, crustaceans, frogs, insects, small reptiles, and even small mammals and birds. In the areas in which the northern snakehead has invaded, native populations are having gradual decreases because of the northern snakehead’s unextinguishable appetite. The most notable features of the northern snakehead fish are its snake-like characteristics. The fish has a long cylindrical body with the blotchy coloration and patterns of a snake.
Bradbury’s Second Story It came on large, jagged toothed, yet deadly finned. It swam just below the water prowling for some fresh meat. Each fin was extended, a long extension to push water away like Moses parting the red sea. Each tooth was sharp and jagged, with rows and rows of teeth it could have been a shredder. And from the great breathing cage of the upper body those two fins pushed water out of the way, which might push schools of fish feet away.
Now I’ll tell you some of the fish you can catch in freshwater. You can catch largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, yellow bass, rock bass, bass etc. In my opinion bass aren’t that fun to catch. Although bass can be really big monsters. The give a little fight but not a huge fight.
They enjoy eating small creatures such as shrimp, fish, crustaceans and they prefer to hunt at night. However, they have different ways of eating their prey. Squids quietly stalk in the water. When the prey is attracted, it is torn apart while it is still alive. They use their tentacles which have rings on the ends that are very sharp and create a tight grip using suction.
For years there has been a debate on who is the top predator in the ocean. Of course the shark is an easy choice but recently in the last couple years the killer whale has emerged as a challenge towards the Great White. The Killer whale is a worthy opponent towards the great white do to its bigger size and better and smarter hunting techniques. As history has shown great whites as dominant and scary they have been to the ocean as the apex predator they have been known to be the killer whales prey. When killer whales have attacked sharks they have turned the sharks upside down.
The grouper is fond of crustaceans such as lobsters and crabs, as well as octopuses, and smaller fishes. They do not chew the food they eat; rather, they simply swallow it. But that doesn 't mean these food items for them would turn out to be whole once they excreted them, because, unknown to many, the grouper actually has a gigantic tooth which is situated just right on the corners of its jaw, which is used for crushing the sea
“It’s very hot and cold at the same time... water spewing back out of the vents’ chimney might reach 700 degrees fahrenheit” (Bliss). This has made deep sea scientists very bewildered, because there are deep sea “yeti crabs” surviving in the harsh environment. They are called yeti crabs because they have hairy legs and chests. Scientists are not sure what they eat, but they believe they eat the bacteria that grows on their hairy legs and chests (Bliss). All of these deep sea animals are very interesting and hold so much
They have long, slim bodies to enable them to swim at fast speeds. Makos live all around the world in central oceans. They have special adaptations they use to help them survive. Makos are currently being protected by U.S. waters. Mako sharks are quite amazing
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
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
