The little Red fish swam in the deep blue water. It saw a
sleek shark. The scared fish hid under a rock. The shark
Eels are long, thin fish. They look like snakes. Eels live in rocks in the ocean. They hide just inside the safe holes. When a small fish swims near, the eel is waiting with his sharp teeth.
The miller ant has a special job to do for its nest. He has a huge head with powerful jaws. He grinds grain into smaller bits. After the harvest season is over, the other ants bite the miller's head off so they don't have to feed it. Then the colony eats up the grain until the next harvest season when new millers are born.
The gecko is a small lizard that lives in warm dry regions such as the American Southwest. It is primarily active at night when it crawls on rocks and walls hunting for insects to eat. When attacked, the gecko will distract the predator by wiggling its tail back and forth. As the predator nears, the lizard can detach itstill wiggling tail leaving the gecko to run free and later regenerate a new tail.
Eight Arms and a Brain
With eight long arms and a large round head, the octopus may look odd, but he is one of the smartest creatures of the sea. In labs, scientists have watched them solve mazes and unscrew lids off jars full of food. When kept in aquariums, they have been known to escape their own tanks and sneak into other tanks to eat the fish. In the wild, some have even been known to climb aboard fishing boats and open holds full of crabs. When he is not looking for food, an actopus can squeeze into an empty shell or a crack in a rock, to rest and hide.
