B. Possesses such large fang-like teeth that it cannot close its mouth. Instead they curve backwards through the fish’s mouth, very close to its eyes. C. Kills its victims by impaling them on its fangs, by swimming into them at high speeds. D. Uses a light organ as a lure to attract other fish towards it. The viperfish uses a process called ‘Bioluminescence’ to attract its prey.
Tiger sharks actually eat whatever they can find. This is where they get the nickname “waste basket of the sea”. (http://www.sharkinfo.ch/SI4_99e/gcuvier.html) They consume fish, turtles, dolphins and other sharks, they are man eaters. Tiger sharks eat about two to three percent of their own body weight per day to cover their energy requirements. These sharks have a very great sense of smell and sight.
Shark poaching is a big concern because it affects the future of sharks and their place of living. Poaching is the process where people get rich by catching sharks on long lines, cutting their fins off, and then dumping the remaining body of the shark back into the ocean to suffocate and bleed to death. Shark poachers seek financial gain and at times religious value, however, by doing so they fail to realize the negative impact that their actions have on the environment and the shark species. “Sharks have made it through multiple mass extinctions on our planet, now many species are going to go the way of the
Their venom can kill just about anything, so they don't have much to worry about. The mamba is mainly threatened by habitat destruction. The main enemy of the black mamba is mainly man. On alert, as when hunting or threatened, mambas travel with a third of their bodies raised off the ground, so that a sudden confrontation can instantly put the snake head-high to a human. A bite to the face or torso or a direct hit into a vein or artery can bring death from paralysis within 20 minutes.
The object of the trip is to look for a monster that has been attacking other ships. After a few months out into open water, they are attacked, by something that looks like a monster. After, the so called monster got hit by cannonballs and a harpoon the crew noticed that water came out of his wounds instead of water. The force of this water throws the scientist, along with Conseil, and a famous whale killer Ned Land into the sea. Eventually they get close to the monster, which eventually turned out to be a shark-shaped submarine, called the Nautilus.
The four countries under this treaty are the U.S.,Japan, Great Britain and Russia. Throughout the 1750’s and 1911, a single fur coat could bring in 1,125 dollars. Although most of the poaching of sea otters has subsided, other factors have come into play (Fernandez, James). Pollution of kelp forests and oil spills are extreme threats to sea otters. Since the sea otter spends most of its life in the water, thousands are killed by oil spills.
Should dolphins be living in a stressful life because of our human’s selfishness? Because they are animals or can’t talk, will be suffered? Each year, 23,000 dolphins are being slaughtered in Taiji, and it is very inhumane. The fish men lure the dolphins by using boat to the cove, then they drop nets to block cove to prevent dolphins to escape, after the next morning, the slaughter begins. They use sharp spears to stab them, if stabbing one time is not enough, twice or three times until it is dead, just imagine how the baby dolphins feel when they see their parents being killed.
The shark smells the blood comes up and attacks the marlin taking a huge chunk of flesh out of the marlin. "Que va." the boy said. "There are many good fishermen and some great ones. But there is only you”. This shows how much respect the boy has for the old man.
A lot of the baby snakes end up dying. Boas eat rodents, birds, frogs, and mammals – anything that can fit into their mouth. They even try to eat things bigger than their mouth, like a tiger! The boa constrictor catches food by squeezing its prey to death, and then the boa starts to swallow it whole. Digesting takes a long time for boas, because they don’t chew their prey.
Swimming frantically, they are driven to the shore and then trapped overnight in a small cove. The next day they are driven into a similar cove, where they are killed by harpoons, fish hooks, and knives. Those who survived either drown in the water or in their own blood, or dragged to a slaughter warehouse where they are stabbed to death. They are then butchered and sent to fish markets for the people of Japan to buy. As if that was not horrible enough, dolphin trainers and veterinarians witness and sometimes assist the killings.
