The ocean is regarded as a sort of bargain basement, but I don’t agree with that estimate. Its different as it's a seahorse with The manta ray was a cool drawing lesson huh? The animal's physiology has adapted to enable it to live at the very low oxygen levels found within the oxygen minimum layers of these regions. Deserts have a varied species of animals that have adapted to the harsh climate of the desert. In the cold season (December to May) the chance to see whale sharks is about 50 percent and you are more likely to see more rays like mantas, mobula and eagle rays, since they get together in schools to mate at this time of year.

Many animals don't have visible ears but have hearing organs inside them, birds for instance. It’s a Herculean task to estimate the threat of extinction for such a gem of nature as we hardly know the actual population diversity to date. Some, like goblet worms, are tiny – only a few millimetres long. When describing life forms (I like to call all life forms 'critters'), especially marine life forms, the name may be easy or it may be difficult.

As with all young birds, the adults are responsible for feeding them until the young can fly. Their sting is harmless to most people, but rare individuals are allergic to the sting. Severe itching may occur after a few days. Humans have depended on seabirds throughout history. Reptiles reached their zenith, including the dinosaurs Triceratops, Tyrannosaurus, Stegosaurus, Apatosaurus (Brontosaurus), and Iguanodon, and ranged from herbivores to carnivores.

Sponges are similar to other animals in that they are multicellular, heterotrophic, lack cell walls and produce sperm cells. Archaea are particularly numerous in the oceans, and the archaea in plankton may be one of the most abundant groups of organisms on the planet. Deprived of the social structure that would normally guide their lives, their behavior is so influenced by stress that it is not an accurate representation of marine life.

If you are lucky enough to see two together, you will notice that they communicate through colour, changing from almost jet-black to white instantly, with different shades rippling hypnotically over their skin. If the shark is bled properly, and the meat boiled, the strong flavour will be removed. Most people are familiar with the extinction event 65 million years ago that wiped out the dinosaurs. We will then advise you on what to do and will get a trained medic out as soon as possible.

Image by Genny Anderson Scientific names are made of Greek and Latin word roots. This environment is very different from organisms like the fangtooth fish or giant tubeworms that adapt to the dark, cold, and otherwise harsh conditions of the deep sea. The recreational harbours in Coralejos, Caleta de Fuste and Moro Jable, among others, are excellent sites to begin a tour of the wildlife of the coast. In their most advanced stages vents are home to mussels, a variety of worms, anemones, and a large population of crabs, as well as many of the earlier colonists. extreme temperatures - highest measured vent temperature is 4030C, highest temperature at which living tube worms have been observed is 1000C, sea water is about 20C at depths where vents form, but can be up to 200C near some vents. chemicals - hydrogen sulfide, the source of energy that fuels vent food webs and the most plentiful compound in vent emissions, is toxic to most living things. pH - vent fluid is very acidic with a pH as low as 2.8, which is very unhealthy for most living things.

The Giant Pacific Octopus is one of the smartest in the marine world. Why did nearly all life on Earth die 250 million years ago? They live in or near rock pools, the ocean, beaches, mangroves and sand dunes. They are more commonly seen while diving Port Hardy, British Columbia. Praesent eget mauris vitae purus aliquet pretium.
