Since it is so dark outside when they hunt they rely on the sense of smell to find them food. When on the move to find their prey, their body color helps them blend in with the dark sky. Another interesting fact about the Gambian Pouch Rat is that their name comes from the pouches in their cheeks. There is no known predator for this species of rat, so they can roam free and eat anything they want (Wiley). LOCATION The first known breeding area for this rat was in the Grassy Key.
Also if there are any underwater trees or logs bass love to hangout under them. Sometimes the bass will even be in deep open water depending on how hot the water temperature is. In rivers, bass are found on the shorelines away from the current. Try fishing the shoreline especially if there are fallen trees or tree limbs in the water. Knowing what type of lure is affective to catch bass is the next step to becoming a good bass angler.
These lion ﬁsh prey on all different types of animals, such as: crabs, shrimp and smaller ﬁsh; and have very little amount predators giving them the place in the higher levels of the food chain. Since it is so high in the food chain and preys on almost anything, it has managed to survive in the Atlantic Ocean perfectly. In the Atlantic, lion ﬁsh are deﬁned as invasive species, which means, "a non-native organism that has intruded into an area and may have serious detrimental effects on native organisms, the local economy, and human health". sadly many accidents have led to the invasion where the lion ﬁsh has spread all across the Caribbean Sea and up North in places like Rhode Island. It is hypothesized that the origin of the whole problem came from only six lion ﬁsh that were accidentally released from an aquarium to the Atlantic Ocean in 1992 during hurricane Andrew.
Drewe uses reoccurring symbols to reinforce the themes of impending danger and creates a sinister atmosphere. It can be seen throughout the memoir of Drewes life; he has always had a fascination with sharks, and writes how as a child he even captured a carpet shark as a sign of strength in an attempt to impress his love interest, Roberta. The title of the novel ‘The Shark Net’ suggests the literal idea of a shark net that in theory are used to keep sharks at bay but in reality is a poor response to the dangers of sharks themselves as they don't help much and can only provide a false sense of security. The shark can also be seen as a metaphor of Cooke, an unseen killer, who is ever present searching and waiting for its next prey, instilling fear by his reputation and his perceptible vagueness, being like a shark. He is a friendly/familiar face to everyone, but then when he murders his victims he becomes unfamiliar to most.
Behind it was a mirror” (Martel 39). People are known to be unkind to animals in zoos where even on accident, many animals die every year from consumption of unsuitable objects. However, there is also a more meaningful side to this topic. Humans act just as relentless as animals when they are pushed to the edge of survival. This is seen in the final chapter of the book on Pi’s second account of what occurred on the life boat.
For rapid swimming and for diving, they swim similarly to other otters, using up-and-down undulations of the body. Sea otters can reach terrifying speeds of 0.9 mph on the surface and 5.6 mph under water. The feral Alaskan sea otter commonly ransack the depths of 131 feet or more, in search of more prey, while the deadly California sea otter is seldom found in water deeper than 66 feet. Sea otters remain submerged for about 52 to 90 seconds; the longest recorded dive was 4 minutes, 25 seconds. Such extended dives are probably a response to an even more brutish animal or event.

There is also what is called freshwater marl prairies which are similar to sloughs but do not have the slow water movement, water seeps though the calcite muds hence the name marl.

Now besides the damning of these sloughs; the alien invasion of exotic plants in the Everglades causes the biggest threat to the indigenous or native plants in the everglades. Some of the birds that feed from these sloughs are what is called “waders” and these are the heron, egret, roseate spoon bills and the ibis to name just a
Many open sea creatures. A dolphin eats a wide variety of fish, and their hunting varies according to the population of food. When large schools of fish are there, many dolphins will try catching their own fish by communicating with one another. They take the fish into the top of the water and force them to the surface of the water, making it impossible for the fish to breath and escape. Dolphins usually hunt during the day.
4). The Boidae and Pythonidae family of snakes whose members include the Green Anaconda, and the Burmese Python, are a major threat to Florida’s ecosystem, and the Everglades. Their sizes, the absence of predators capable of keeping their population in check, and the abundance of prey who has yet to develop a defense strategy against these unfamiliar predators, threatens to destroy the natural balance of predator/prey relationship in the
