Two percent of the ocean has been overlooked by people ant it leaves ninety-eight percent of the ocean for the megladon can swim. This shark could be a very intelligent shark by possibly attacking its pray as fast as it can and head down the bottom of the big blue. The evidence has proven that there was a time this shark had lived because of the physical evidence shown by the teeth collected. The pictures clearly state that there is a mega shark out there and the eyewitnesses explained that a huge shark had been around in South Africa. There may come a time when this shark may make a mistake and show its self to the world with
There is a 250,000 dollar fine for anyone who is caught fishing for a Great White. If I were in charge of trying to keep the Great Whites from becoming extinct, the first thing I would do is make sure that the seals and sea lions are protected, because without them, the shark would not survive due to a lack of food sources. Next, I would make it a heavier fine for anyone caught fishing for the sharks. Because these are a rare breed of shark, it will be hard to monitor their numbers, but I would want to tag as many as possible, so I would be able to study and track where they go.
The Northern Snakehead can survive up to four days out of water and can grow up to 33 inches long. The species has been nicknamed “Frankenfish” due to its shark-like teeth and aggressiveness. It was first introduced in a pond in Crofton, Maryland in June 2002. Researchers believe the species ended up in the U.S. due to uncaring disposal of aquarium pets. Other researchers think some people were trying to breed Snakeheads as they bring a large amount of money in some areas.
It is the deadliest shark known to man and has been accounted for the most caused deaths. Hammerhead- this shark is easily recognized because of its hammer shape like head. The hammerhead shark has this type of head because they have all of their sensory organs in their head. Reef sharks- this sharks is referred to as the black tip shark because of its black fins. They normally live in the reef eating on small pray such as fish, lobsters, and small mammals.
Recently after numerous attacks, the Western Australian government stated a hunt and kill policy on any shark that is a tiger, bull or great white over the size of 4 meters. For numerous reasons this should be deemed illegal by the government and stop the culling in Western Australia. Australia is home to more diverse, unique and beautiful animals than any other place on earth, and included in these animals are the three sharks that have been focused on about in the cull in Western Australia. Ever since people have been utilising beaches for swimming and surfing, there have been shark attacks. And sadly on the flip side, ever since people have been swimming/ surfing at beaches, there have been attacks on sharks.
Killer Whales in Captivity: Entertainment or Torture? The death of the SeaWorld Orlando’s trainer Dawn Brancheau, in 2010, by one of their performing orcas (named Tilikum) and the subsequent release, in 2013, of the documentary Blackfish, have raised a major controversy not only among animal advocates such as PETA (People of Ethical Treatment of Animals) but also the regular marine park attendees. If the incidents presented in marine parks around the world, over the course of several the years, were not been hidden or ignored, this horrifying accident could have been prevented. The fact that some incidents were kept a secret from the public and new trainers, worsen the situation. After so many years and incidents, the captivity of killer whales or orcas (Orcinus orca) merely for entertainment purposes should be prohibited.
Their narrow pointed teeth are ideal for holding prey, most of which is swallowed whole. Tests on the feeding habits of angel sharks have shown that they react to any passing prey, spitting out anything that does not appeal to their appetite. They have complete faith in their camouflage when approached by divers but will inflict a shallow bite if harassed. The various species of Angel sharks range in size up to 6.5 feet (2 m) long and are mostly bottom dwellers that live on ocean floors of depths from 10 to 4,300 feet (3 to 1300 m). They sometimes prefer however, sandy near shore habitats.
Dr Carl Meyer from Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology stated that mass levels of shark culling “runs the risk of ecosystem-level cascade effects where a general lack of sharks results in boom or bust in populations of species further down the food chain”. Furthermore when nets are used to trap sharks, often animals such as dolphins, turtles, whales and dugongs become trapped in them. Turtles are one of the most endangered species as a whole and are just innocent bystanders in this war between humans and sharks. We need to be careful of not affecting other animals in this quest to reduce shark numbers in the name of nothing. Sharks can already be caught legally by commercial and recreational fishers so any cull would be largely
End Captivity To End Suffering In recent years, the issue of the encagement of killer whales inside of SeaWorld Parks has been brought to light within society. Inside miniature tanks, these Orcas are eating an unnatural diet, fighting with each other and breaking their teeth in efforts to escape. Organizations such as Sea World of Hurt, a PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) campaign, Keep Whales Wild and The Orca Project work daily to educate the general public on the effects of captivity as well as fight for the rights of these killer whales. While these groups are expressing their passion through education and protest, they are in great need of a larger backing. It is as simple as educating yourself, spreading the
Although their venom isn’t not lethal to humans it is used to subdue and kill the prey, and they are also known to strangle their prey to death like the Boa Constrictor snakes. When this vicious snake feels threatened its first reaction is to lunge at the threatening object and attempt to bite. This snake is an above average breeder producing 4 to 12 eggs approximately twice a year. This reptile was introduced after World War II when the snake was accidently transported from the South Pacific to Guam allowing for the snake to introduce to other locations such as Florida unknowingly (Rodda, 1992). Since there are no natural predators present in
