They have a wide variety of preys, however they prefer to prey on stingrays (Strong, 1990). Their denticles are used to prey on the stingrays in order to facilitate their feeding. These denticles are used more as teeth than fish scales of how sharp and dangerous they are. They also prey on invertebrates, small boney fish, and other sharks as well. They travel throughout the coastal semi ocean (Carlson, 2002).
What 's can be up to 3,000 pounds. They have a long and wide body, dorsal fins, and a horizontal tail. Their skin is smooth but has a little bit of hair on it. They breath through lungs and have a blowhole. Whales and sharks eat a lot
But, they all have something in common, in that they are all very interesting. Baby Sharks, Physical Appearance, and “Family Life” First of all, sharks are surprisingly not that cute as babies. Baby sharks are called pups. Pups are twice the size of your average goldfish, and have one sort-of-sharp set of teeth. Pups can be born in three ways.
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. The face has a large mouth with sharp, shiny teeth and the eyes are located far forward on the head with large scales placed at the top.
Horses of the Sea Seahorses are one of the most unusual fish in the sea. There are over 70 species of Seahorse and most live in tropical waters. They are found in coral reefs, in tree roots, or hiding in aquatic plants like seaweed. This fish has a most unusual shape which makes it hard to swim. They propel themselves forward using a small fin on their back.
The Zombie Worm use their “root-like structures” to latch onto whale bones; the only known source of sustenance (Ennis). The structures extract the dietary needs from the bone after an acid is released and the bone is dissolved (Ennis). The oils and fats are then digested by internal bacteria (Ennis). Though little to none is known about the Yeti Crab their food source is conjectured by scientists. They have come to the hypothesis that the crabs hairs “grow mineral bacteria” (Bliss).
It 's most common name is the Horseshoe Crab but it 's scientific name is Limulus polyphemus. The Horseshoe Crab is not just found in Cape Cod, it is also found along the northern Atlantic coast and up the Gulf of Mexico. The horseshoe crab looks very round, it also has 2 eyes and 10 legs. It 's shell has raised bumps and it 's sides have spikes. Females can be from 18-19 inches from head to tail, while the males can be 14-15 inches.
Killerwhales and dolphins have similar diets and habitats,but their traits are different.Have you ever seen a killer whale or a dolphin? Killerwhales and dolphins have the same traits.Male dolphins and male killer whales are older than the females.Killer whales grow about four inches and the dolphins grow about three or five inches a day.The dolphins weigh about a hundred or more.The killer whales weigh about seven thousand five hundred pounds. These sea creatures have same diets.Both animals eat small fish,but the dolphins eats baby penguins.The dolphin and the killer whale sometimes eat sea creatures.Some dolphins eat marine creatures.Killer whales and dolphins catch their food by chasing them.Other name for a killer
Although the most predominant color is red, there are also shades of pink, green, blue and yellow. The mural depicts a serpent that could also be a crocodile whose head, upper jaw, and lower jaw are green. The mouth and face are red, the lips appear to be yellow, and the eye had a gray pupil with a yellow iris and light grey sclera. Protruding from the serpent’s mouth is a tongue in the shape of the pistil of a flower. From the pistil droplets resembling tadpoles are emerging.
The leopard seal is second only to the killer whale among Antarctica 's top predators. Its canine teeth are 2.5 cm (1 in).  It feeds on a wide variety of creatures. Smaller seals probably eat mostly krill, but also squid and fish. Larger leopard seals probably switch from krill to more substantial prey, including king, adelie, rockhopper, gentoo, emperor, and chinstrap penguins, and less frequently, other seals, such as crabeater seal.
Orcas have the 2nd largest brain of all marine mammals, just three pounds less than the Sperm Whale’s 18-pound brain. For starters, orcas in each pod have their own “language,” composed of clicks, squeaks, and whistles. In addition to each orca pod having its own “language,” the orcas can decipher other pods’ languages. Orcas also have incredibly precise echolocation, a form of sonar or radar in animals. Killer whales use echolocation for a couple of things.
These marine species inhabit mostly coastal water. They like warmer water and they dwell in anywheres from zero feet all the way down to sixteen thousand feet. They do have many predators so they always have to be on the defense. Some of their predators include sunfish, sea turtles, tuna, butterfish, spiny dogfish, and blue rockfish. Even though jellyfishes do have tentacles that release nematocysts which injects the animal with toxins, it does not stop animals from eating it because some animals are immune to their sting.
They eat whales, sea lions, seals, sea turtles, and fish. When a mother has a baby shark it is called a pup. When a pup is born it is four to five feet long. Great White Sharks can live up to 25 years or more. A Great White Shark can sense blood up to three miles.
The fish are then eaten very slowly, usually one at time. However Carousel feeding has only been documented in the Norwegian killer whales and some dolphins who live in the ocean.Sharks can also be the part of this whale’s diet. Killer Whales may herd them to the surface and strike them with their tail flukes. Killer whales can induce in sharks and rays
