With an empty stomach, the large bull orca confronts the lone, yet cocky Great White Shark. As the Great White bares its teeth, the bull orca jumps out of the water, slamming its body on the shark. In desperation, the small shark tries to ram the orca’s eye, but hits its false eye patch, still injuring him. With his temper blaring, the seven-ton killer whale swims full speed at the shark, smacking his flukes on the small head of the Great White. In one final stroke, the orca scoops it into its own mouth, smacks its head on coral reef and kills it.
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.
In the film Blackfish by Gabriela Cowperthwaite, the scene in which Seaworld trainer Kenneth Peters, almost died when he was repeatedly pulled and dragged under the water by the killer whale kasatka, was by the most breathtaking and disturbing footage presented throughout the film. Based on this scene, the director is arguing that the captivity of Killer whales is inhumane, because the emotions humans contain and express are equivalent or inferior to those of animals, which can lead to extreme mental instability. Similarly Mark twain also touches upon the ideas of animals being equal or superior towards humans in “The Lowest Animal”. Furthermore, Twain brilliantly and satirically describes the animal kingdom and the placement of humans on it. He argues that Animals are the lower species when he states that “ the higher animals have no religion.
THE EVOLUTION OF THE CARCHARODON CARCHARIAS (SHARK) for my research task, I chose to study and track the evolution of the shark. These beasts being one of nature’s top predators in the world and dominating the oceans surrounding our continents. I chose these fierce creatures as they were a perfect example for me to use in explaining the evolution and the branching of evolution purely based on the fact that they have been around for millions of years through prehistoric times changing and evolving into different forms living in different areas and different depths of the world, as we see they are a large amount of shark species in the oceans all coming from one place. Which will be discussed in further detail throughout this research task.
The breathtaking colors and magnificent fins of these elegant creatures combine to produce a marvelous visual effect that is hard to equal in the underwater world-and indeed even above ground! Almost every color of the spectrum is well represented in the appearance of these fishes ranging from solid greens, to stunning reds with green accents on the fins, to golden yellows, to majestic turquoise and marble striped beauties...the range is virtually endless and you would be extremely hard pressed to find any two of these fishes that look exactly alike. Far beyond any physical beauty, no matter how awesome and spectacular
The movie hits on a lot of main issues about captivity, told by reliable people, along with proven statistics to go along with them. That makes this sources extremely dependable for my final paper due to all the good information it gives. This movie does a good job on the timeline of events. It starts in the beginning from where and how whales were captured to be put into sea-parks, and even follows the whales on their journeys. For example, the film mainly focuses on a giant whale named Tilikum and where he started, his events, where he moved, to and where he was last when the film was made.
He stuck his hand underwater while holding the shrimp. A giant stingray approached him and took his food. My eyes grew big, and my long, thick, blonde hair starts falling out of the ponytail. Inside the aquarium gates, I crawled slowly toward the stingrays. Although I was excited to be here, I feared confronting these creatures.
Seaparks changed forever in 1964, when the the largest captive animal ever was first put on display for the public to see (Killer Controversy). Capable of growing up to twenty eight feet long, with a six foot tall dorsalfin, and weighing up to 9,570 pounds, it is no wonder why the world knows this mammal as the killer whale ("KILLER WHALES (Orcinus Orca)). Being put on display flipped the image of the killer or orca whale from vishous and mean, to playful and brilliant. Little did people know, orcas don 't belong in captivity and that putting them there would turn the beautiful creature back into the vicious beast it was known as before. Thus proving, the containment of whales, for any motive, needs to come to an end, for the reasons that it 's not needed, there are not treated well, live shorter lifespans, and are in bad living conditions that pose multiple threats to their lives.
A massive fish came soaring out of the water and crashed into your jaw as you were powerboating by the Great Lakes. Was it a shark, or the lochness monster? Nope, it was an one-hundred pound Asian Carp. Asian Carp are examples of Invasive species. Exotic invasive species share many commonalities amongst each other in their extreme ability to arrive, survive, and thrive.
