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).
Sharks are sea creatures, so obviously they live in the ocean. Sharks are mostly found in the Pacific Ocean, but can also be found in the Atlantic Ocean, and very rarely the Indian Ocean. Sharks will eat almost any living thing they find in the ocean, including us humans, even though it only happens rarely. They like seals the most. It is unknown what they drink.
The Port and Starboard Lightfish looks like a Pineapple. It is very exciting to observe this fish and its unique features. The Port and Starboard Lightfish is also known as the Knight fish, the Coat of Mail Fish and the Pineapple fish. It is commonly seen in harbors and reefs in the Queensland in Australia. The Port and Starboard Lightfish prefers to live in waters that are about 6 to 200 meters in depth.
A few years back, in the southern-most part of the Red Sea, lived two common enemies. One was a Reef shark by the name of Luci. Other members of his clan mockingly called him Lucifer, since his beady eyes and sharp teeth were fit for the devil himself. Luci 's natural born enemy was a small Angelfish by the name of Gabriel. Gabriel was just as you might expect an angelfish to be, timid and sweet.
Jellyfish eat the larvae and eggs of the anchovies, it affects the fisherman who catch and sell the anchovies because they depend on a successful season of anchovie fishing, there is a jellyfish called the Bereo which eats the Mnemiopsis jellyfish and creates a more blanced ecosystem. In the article Jellyfish take over it says, "These blooms of Jellyfish eat the larvae and eggs of these local fish leaving fishermen without fish and without a way to make a living." These Jellyfish are causing alot of problems. In the article Jellyfish Take Over it
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 overpopulating jelly ﬁsh eat the ﬁsh eggs leaving no ﬁsh for the ﬁsherman. But there is one hero, the Bereo jellyﬁsh. The Bereo jellyﬁsh eat the Mnemiopsis jellyﬁsh leng the ﬁsh come back for the ﬁshermen. These are some known facts about the Black Sea and the jellyﬁsh within it! Mnemiopsis may help kill the Bereo jellyﬁsh but the scientist are worried about the Mnemiopsis jelly fish moving to new areas and overpopulating there.
The main reason this has a social impact is because of fear. The fear of eating an infected bunch of shellfish stops companies and customers from buying them ("Paralytic Shellfish" 1 ). By the companies and regular customers not buying them, the companies lose money. This causes them to go into an economic depression, which may cause lose of money or bankruptcy ("Paralytic Shellfish" 2 ). The ecological effect is mainly the infection of certain marine life and may cause some species to slowly die off.
They had to adapt to living 900 ft below sea water and only coming up at night so they don’t get caught and eaten by predators. They use, their eight arms and two tentacles to capture food and bring to their mouth. They use ink from their ink sack to try and scare away predators. They use fins that are located on their heads to propel themselves while swimming at slow speeds. They use their color changing abilities to attract female squids.
(www.world wildlife.org) Also destruction crews will come to the beaches at destroy them. Fishing crews will have nets that they would get all stuck in or will have hooks in them. Baby turtles will mistake buildings and homes for the ocean and go to them. They also have a disease called
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.
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.
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.

The leafy seadragon is a mastermind, it camouflouges really welll, is a carnivore, and has a weird way of mating. To begin, the Leafy Sea Dragon is ingenious at what it does.
In one final stroke, the orca scoops it into its own mouth, smacks its head on coral reef and kills it. The orca is my favorite animal because of its domineering behavior, majestic appearance, and striking intelligence. With the orca’s incomparable behavior, it is no wonder why these majestic creatures are considered the “top ocean predators” and “kings of the ocean.” Orcas, commonly known as killer whales, live in groups called pods. The members of the
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
