For example, there are tons of animals born with defects and other abnormalities. Like the pink hippopotamus found in Kenya, or the pink albino bottle nose dolphin. This bottle nose dolphin was discovered in Lake Calcasieu in Louisiana in 2007 by charter boat captain Erik Rye. Rye told ESPN " It was absolutely, stunningly pink, it looks like it just came out of a paint booth." I have never seen a pink dolphin, but it is on my list of things to see.
Defenders.org tells that the Hawaiian Monk Seals live up to about thirty years. Only one pup is born at a time. Although this is true, mothers to not adopt any abandoned pups.

Marlin has to travel all the way to a harbor in Sydney, Australia to reach Nemo at the dentist office. I recommend this Disney film to families with children or someone that enjoys animated dramatic comedies because of the setting, characters, and theme. The mood of the setting correlates well with the theme the characters portray. The setting takes place in the Great Barrier Reef in the Pacific Ocean. In the film, Nemo and his father live on the reef in a sea anemone around various fish.
Coupled with these pillars and rocks were small skittish sand crabs. With there hard shell, light brown color, eyes floating above their head, and legs spread apart they were very fast. Moving onward, I scrambled up the faded pier with old cracked dry wood that squeaked along the way until I reach the peak. My feet were once again warmed by the scorching wood of the pier. I tip-toed toward an orange heavy duty igloo water cooler yelling with my mouth wide open, OUCH, HOT, HOT, OU, until I cooled them down with the ice cold water.
Once we are off, all I can hear is the muffled engine under the surface, the water splashing up beside us and the screams and laughter of my friend and me. My arms strain as we both hang on for our lives, all we can see are blurs of cabins and trees racing by. Our open smiles are filled with the taste of fish water with every splash. Once all of the water is cleared out of our eyes we see a giant wave coming ahead and brace ourselves; we hold even tighter to the handles and start screaming. As the boat does a sharp turn, I tighten my grip and can feel my muscles burn in my arms.
FACT: Octopi squirt ink to defend themselves. Most species of octopusi can release a thick cloud of black ink that helps to confuse predators and provide the octopus an edge when attempting to escape. One of the pigments in the octopus' ink is melanin (the same pigment that gives our skin and hair color). FACT: Special skin cells called chromatophores enable octopi to blend into their background. Chromatophores enable an octopus to camouflage itself with its surroundings by changing the appearance of its epidermis.
“Patricia Morgan was a fighter. Her life had been extremely difficult.

Hannah McGowen April 19, 2012 English 10H B-2 Dolphin Killings Looking at a small fishing town in Japan called Taiji, it seems as if it came right out of a story book. Three hundred miles from Tokyo on the coast of the Pacific Ocean, it harbors not only fish, but a big secret. Every year, in this small village, over two thousand dolphins are slaughtered. It was a secret the Japanese have kept for four hundred years, until now. Though the Japanese think the dolphin killings are fine, many others do not.
The two end canoes then curved toward shore, driving the fish toward land. At shallow water, the two end canoe men jumped out and enclosed the circle. Men, women and children trampled into the water, frightening the fish into the net. This fishing technique was only effective on bright, sunny days when the leaves could cast a shadow and scare the fish. Some i’a caught with the hukilau fishing method included ulua, moi, oio, awa, and awa kalamoku.
