According to “How did whales become do large? Scientists dive into marine mystery” by Nicola Davis, the blue whale has a body the length of a jetliner, a heart the size of a car and a tongue the weight of an elephant. Researchers now say that they might have found the solution to the mystery behind why baleen whales-a group that includes the blue whales, became the largest animals on the planet. Scientists say that the massive growth which was driven by changes in the distribution of oceanic food and happened just 2 to 3 million years ago. Graham Slater, an evolutionary biologist and co-author of the research from the University of Chicago says that baleen whales have only been giants for one-tenth of their 36-million-year evolutionary history.
Research displays that the rate at which sharks are killed is close to 100 million every year! There are so many causes which assist with Sharks being on the verge of extinction, one of which includes human activities. First and Foremost , Shark finning refers to the removal and retention of shark fins and the discard at sea of the carcass. This means that for commercial purposes poachers cut off the shark 's fin, (while its still living) and tosses it back into the ocean. This is a detrimental problem because unable to swim, the sharks sink to the bottom of the ocean where the remains are eaten by other fish.
Does anyone ever imagine what life would be like as a fish? Andrew Stanton tackles the task of bringing the events that happen underwater to life. Finding Nemo released in 2003 tells the story of a worrisome father who swore to protect his son after a tragic accident took away his wife and hundreds of other children. The father and a blue tang called Dory become a dynamic duo and form an awkward friendship on the journey to reacquire his only son Nemo. Finding Nemo is the best animated marine movie ever.
Another instance of a deadly killer whale attack happened in Spain. Alexis Martinez was killed by the 14 year old killer whale Keto (Jacobs). Keto was born in Sea World but was later separated from his mother and was sold to a water park in Spain, Loro Parque. Keto suffered with separation issues from his mother and had frequent run ins with his tank mates causing tension, anxiety, and stress to build. On December 24, 2009, Keto pulled Alexis Martinez into the tank where he drowned.
SeaWorld is one of the most visited amusement parks in the United States where families are able to get together and see animals and their trainers perform incredible stunts. However, SeaWorld has been under the flame after the public opinion of SeaWorld drastically changed after the release of the movie Blackfish by Gabriela Cowperthwaite in 2012. The documentary Blackfish helped exposed people to the reality of what was really going on behind the scenes at SeaWorld, with everything including their trainers to the overall well-being of the orca whales. Not only has Blackfish exposed how SeaWorld has shortened the lifespan of orcas in captivity, but it shined some light on how the orcas were living, how the orca’s behavior changed, how trainers
In 2004 in Indonesia a 9.0 earthquake hit and created a tsunami that killed about 250,00 people and the author Richard Lewis recreaded the story in the killing sea because he is interested in the mysterious ocean. First on page 48 the narrator said “for as far as Ruslan could see, meulaboh had become a lake, clogged with floating debris”. this is true because meulaboh was one of the first places that the tsunami hit so all the ocean water was there and went through many cities and destroyed pretty much everything there.throughout the book Ruslan finds dead bodies and so did many of the rebels, it said that on page 49 the narrator said”across the way, ruslan can see dozens of bodies crumpled on second floor stairs of the shopping mall.” because of the tsunami, about 250,000 people had died so there would be many dead bodies everywhere and inside of every building, but especially in the shopping mall because people like to go to the mall so there would be a lot of people there. Then on page 18 the narrator said”from up top came peter exited cry.”hey, the reefs are drying up! there 's fish flopping fish around!”” in meulaboh,before the tsunami hit the reef dried up and groups of people were just standing there looking at the reef and there actually was fish flopping around, but then the tsunami hit and killed all of the tourists that were just standing there.richard Lewis accurately represented the tragedy of the tsunami in Indonesia and added a few characters that made

There is one whale Tillicum that kills the trainers. When Tillicum gets upset he kills people with no reason. Dwain was a trainer at Sea World and was one of the best workers. Animals gave lots of energy when all of the trainers went on a boat to see the killer whales. The whales have a part of their brain we don’t have called paralimbic cleft.

Because they are unable to untangle themselves, they also die from starvation or from their inability to escape predators. On a report in 2006 called Plastic Debris in the World’s Oceans, It was estimated that at least 267 different animal species have suffered from entanglement and ingestion of plastic debris. Some species are consumers of jelly fish, but often mistake plastic bags for their natural prey, which obstructs the oesophagus of sea turtles therefor killing them. It has been estimated that about 400,000 marine mammals die annually due to plastic pollutions in the ocean. As said by Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra “One must be a sea, to receive a polluted stream without becoming impure”.
