The sharks represented ever-present danger, and how the characters in the story were always in danger. Sharks are like people: they eat people and do not care who the person is. The sharks represented an ever-present danger because, in the novel, the sharks were always under Louie, Mac, and Phil’s raft. The airmen fear the sharks more than starvation or drowning (LitCharts, int.). When Louie jumped out of the raft, he went into the water k owing that the water was shark-infested.
Hammerhead sharks are found in ecosystems in temperate and tropical oceans. They live in these types of oceans, because if it was a colder climate they would die from hypothermia and soon the species would become extinct. These sharks like to stay in schools up to 100 in numbers. The reason they stick together is there is more protection in numbers and they can kill bigger prey like big great white sharks. Next Hammerhead sharks gets there name for its flat shaped head and some people think it is useless to the shark.
Roger Ebert starts by calling the movie “Jaws” as a sensationally effective action picture and a scary thriller. He explains that it works all the better because it’s populated with characters that have been developed into human beings that we get to know and care about. He then compares the movie to as frightening as “The Exorcist” but he says it’s a nicer kind of fright yet somehow more fun because they’re being scared by an outdoor-adventure saga instead of by a brimstone and vomit devil. 4.

In the documentary Blackfish, two women recount the story of a Sealand trainer, Keltie Byrne, falling into a pool of orcas and ultimately paying the cost of her own life. These women and an entire crowd of people watched in horror as Tilikum, one of the orcas, pulled her to the bottom of the pool and all three of the orcas took turns tossing her around until she drowned. Since then, orcas have been viewed as dangerous and lethal. However, this is just not the case. These majestic animals are gentle and at times playful in their natural habitat.
This caused the other experienced whale to become frustrated with Tilikum and she would rake her teeth across his body, forming many scars. Another issue mentioned in the documentary was where the whales were kept. They kept the whales in a dark, metal, twenty by thirty foot pools for the majority of their lives. A former Seaworld trainer described the modules as “floating steel boxes.” According to Ken Balcomb, director of the Centre for Whale Research,“If that is true, it’s not only inhumane and I’ll tell them so, but it
If we do not realize this reality, we could lose sharks forever. A monumental reason why I believe that sharks should be protected is because when they attack, it is often a product of mistaken identity. Sharks use electromagnetic pulses to track down prey, therefore their eyesight suffers to a degree. Surfers often resemble seals from the depths of the water. Sharks use their pulses to strike what
Sometimes, the sharks will hunt in groups. Bull sharks are territorial and is likely the cause for human attacks. When encountering a bull shark, you will most likely see a remora attached. Bull sharks are near threatened. Did you know that the possibly oldest shark may never be completely known?
The shark represents the stimulant for change of the town because it has grown too selfish and greedy. The shark is there to draw the people back to their roots because their lust for money is blinding them from their safety. The setting is a small Island off the coast of New England where late one night a group of teenagers are relaxing on a beach having a good time. One couple decide to go skinny dipping but while the girl gets in the boy collapses because he is drunk. The girl continues out farther away from the shoreline where she eventually stops to tread water.
Alligators who stay in the slaughterhouse are mentally unstable (Slaughtered and Skinned). Many show signs of stress by fighting with other alligators. Others pile on top of one another which is another sign. All of these things are what is causing the alligator population to go down. Alligators should be wild, free animals who should not be worrying about what is going on around them.
The lifeguards went insane but unfortunately Emma didn't see the shark, and I surfed by her and yelled," Emma shark!!" It was too late by the time I was on the grainy, squishy sand Emma was gone. The gray, feisty, and violent shark ate Emma up in one bite. I have always been terrified of sharks, so for the rest of the trip I am staying out of the
Sharks have the task of killing the wounded, old, and sick fish in schools to keep the stocks of fish healthy and plentiful. Andy Dehart, Discovery Channel Shark Advisor, spoke about the North Carolina shark over fishing problem. The shark populations on the East Coast were extremely over-fished which lead to the over population of sting rays, a main food-stock for sharks. The stingrays in turn decimated the shellfish populations on the East Coast, leading to calm and shellfish shortages. This shows that sharks are necessary for every eco-system and their destruction affects us in more ways then we can imagine.
In 2013, a documentary called Blackfish was released to the public. This film was produced, written, and directed by a lady named Gabriela Cowperthwaite, as a way to show the world how poorly whales are treated and why they do not belong in captivity. Blackfish also shows how little people really know about the beautiful and highly intelligent orca whale itself. Her film was seen by many, and touched the hearts of a lot people, taking the debate of the topic to a higher level. The movie hits on a lot of main issues about captivity, told by reliable people, along with proven statistics to go along with them.
They use footage from different sources, showing trainers in the pool with the orcas and on the background a 911 call plays while these scenes are shown. Here Blackfish is raising the audience’s tension to believe that was the moment of that trainer’s demise. Various former SeaWorld trainers are then interviewed, and say the incidents with the trainers happened due to the aggressive behavior of the whales trying to harm the trainers. Dr. Dave Duffus also states that these attacks were a cause of the rigorous training the whales go through, making them aggressive towards the trainers. On SeaWorld’s response they state that these events were accidents, and that the cause of death was not due to the whales, but because of the trainers’ negligence.
Tilikum was not the only orca mentioned in the documentary but since he is well known (because of SeaWorld) caught they eye of many. Former Sealand trainers interviewed say that the park’s female killer whales would aggressively gang up on Tilikum especially when they were confined in a 20-foot-by- 30-foot pool overnight (Halverstadt). Aggressive behaviors has led to three deaths by Tilikum. Many say that this behavior comes from a aggressive side of Tilikum that is a side that doesn’t want to hurt anyone but has such a anger because he is being held captive.To be taken out of your water and away from your normal everyday living is very disturbing but what causes lots of emotions to go up is when we see that orcas are getting separated from other orcas they have lived with their entire lives or even birthed. The story that made it around the world and back, caused quite the controversy about whether orcas should be putting on shows was the senior SeaWorld trainer Dawn Brancheau.
Well in both movies as you can see the animal seems in control of the people like in jaws the shark seem to be really smart because everything that the Capitan Quint try to do to the shark seem like a game for the white shark because he was in control at that moment. But it was impossible to kill the smart shark because I think he knew every move that they did to try to kill the shark. Else I think he knew the island around him because he knew were the people went or when they were in the water. The tyrannosaurus rex seem in control at the Jurassic park because every time the tyrannosaurus did damage to the people or the surface around him, the people never had the right tool to kill the animal or stop it and when you do not kill an animal
