Mysteries of yer deep
Transcript of Mysteries of yer deep
designed by Péter Puklus for Prezi
The first layer of the ocean is the sunlight layer. The scientific name is Epipelagic Zone. This lasts from the surface of the ocean to 330 feet. This layer may be the shallowest , but it surely is the busiest! This layer consists of so many animals, such as: tuna, sharks, sea turtles, blue whales, dolphins, jellyfish, sea lions, seals and many more.
The Twilight Zone
The Twilight Zone, also known as the Mesopelagic Zone, lasts from 330 feet to 3,300 feet. As you go down further and further in the ocean, it gets dimmer, cooler, and more pressurized. In this layer plants and algae cannot survive. Most if not all of the species have adapted to living here, and have big eyes so they can see you better. A majority of the animals in this layer are bioluminescent. Which means that they can produce light. The animals that live here are: octopuses, squids, cuttlefishes, wolf eels, sword fish, and other semi deep sea creatures.
The Midnight Zone
The next zone is the Midnight Zone. You could imagine why it is called that. Temperatures here are close to freezing and it it pitch black. Food is very scarce and few animals live here. 90% of the oceans water is in this zone. Red tube worms can be found here as well as vampire squids, the black swallower, and angler fish.
