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. Don’t worry the purple striped jellyfish is not endangered. These jellyfish survive anywheres from two to six months but they come from humble beginnings. Death is often caused by rough waters. This type of jellyfish reproduce sexually.
For Meandrites in a whole they are doing well overall, they have managed to stay off the “IUCN Red List of Threatened Species” remaining one of their least concerns. This coral tends to stay imobile spreding its young assexually. When a Meandrite spreads its young it simply shoots out of itself and into the current of the water. Weather or not the young are shot far or close will determine if they are going to be a part of the flat
Ghost Shrimp, also called Glass Shrimp, are one of the highest populating shrimp. Ghost Shrimp are scavenger feeders and will accept a wide variety of foods. They are omnivorous and will naturally feed on brush algae and fallen food. Ghost Shrimp are primarily translucent, small and highly active. Ghost Shrimp do an excellent job of cleaning rotting debris and algae; reducing ammonia ppm.
A shark net is a submerged net placed around beaches to reduce sharks attacks. on swimmers It does not always stop shark attacks, but it does help reduce them. A shark net is normally about 6m tall and 200m wide and floats below the surface of the water. They stop and capture the sharks in the net. I believe that we should use shark nets more, because it keeps people safe and also keeps the sharks away from the swimming beaches.
In addition to birds, plenty of fish can be found in the basin and fishermen frequent the basin in search of Tilapia (3). Tilapia can be found by the hundreds in the basin along with corvina and an occasional striped bass, mullet, croaker, or sargo (3). The endangered pupfish, though rare, also rely on the basin for survival (10). Pupfish are also the only native species in the Salton Sea, thriving in shallow bodies of water with a high salt and heat
The tongue biters have seven legs, with claws on each one that makes them all the more strong and sharp. This species lives wide-range from seaweed, to trenches and even in back gardens. I learned that the job of this insect is to latch onto a host and crush and tear at their flesh which over time eventually kills that host. Tammy Horton explains that when a marine Biologist finds a species like this it is a joy feeling because they are so rare. As oppose to a couple buying fish to eat and coming home finding a gross parasite latched to the fish’s tongue isn’t the best site to see and usually grosses most people out.
There is a type of fish in aquariums, that when it swims, it looks like a dragon or like a horse, it’s relative. The leafy sea dragon is a type of sea dragon that looks like seaweed when it swims with many brown and yellow leaf shaped spines all over it’s body. It lives on the south coast of austrailia, the only place too see these little guys. The leafy sea dragon almost looks spiny, it could really creep people out with its “leaves” but its not hurtful at all. The leafy seadragon is a mastermind, it camouflouges really welll, is a carnivore, and has a weird way of mating.
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.

The lakes are situated along the US-Canadian border, touching Ontario in Canada and Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Ohio Pennsylvania, Indiana and New York in the United States. Roughly 34 million people in Canada and the United States live in the great lakes basin, and also 35 000 plants and animals, over 170 of those being fish, inhabit the great lakes (Zimmermann). This significantly large water body holds an estimate of 6 quadrillion gallons of water.
How much do you really know about the hammerhead shark? Most people assume a shark is a shark, but there are many different types of sharks all with their own distinct qualities. However, the nine species of hammerhead sharks are easily identified by the unique shape of their head which resembles a hammer and is the origin of their name. Hammerheads are cold-blooded mammals that can grow up to 25 feet in length and weight as much as 1000 lbs.

They harm the painted turtle.
The guidon is a representation of a unit and its commanding officer. It can also be a symbol of pride for the unit and the rallying point for soldiers to fall in for formation when the order is given. The guidon is carried by a guidon bearer and he or she stands in front of the unit alongside the commander or first sergeant. The practice of using a guidon in the United States Army has been in place since the Revolutionary War; however, it was only implemented due to the leaders of the colonists being familiar with military traditions of Western Europe, such as England and France.
The video “Killer Shrimp” was very interesting and I learned a lot. It had a lot of information about the shrimp’s senses and its way of life. Most of the killer shrimp can be found in the Tampa Bay area and there are as many as 400 different kinds. Killer shrimp can also be called Mantis Shrimp because of the fact they have a slight resemblance of a playing mantis, in a shrimp form.
