Main Topic: The main topic is facts about the ocean, ocean animals and land animal that live close to the ocean. It also talkes about the pollution in the water about how it kills fish ands sea birds. At the end it said that the sent probes down more than humans for safety just like space but up. And it said they now more about space and planets than the ocean and species in the ocean.

Something I already knew
I new the book would include facts about the animals that live in the ocean like Penguins, Seals, Walruses, Crill, etc. And the book would include land animals that live by the ocean like Polar Bears, Sea Gulls, etc. One more thing I knew is it would include pollution in the ocean and killed over one million animals a year.

Chapter 3 talks about animals in or living thing in the ocean and some animals that live by the ocean. Chapter 4 talks about 3 poisonous animals in the ocean and coral etc. Chapter 5 talks about animals in the ocean like Turtles, Whales, etc. Chapter 6 talks about animals in the bottom of the ocean. Chapter 7 talks about ice and water animals in the cold part of the ocean. Chapter 8 talks about thing and people that explore the ocean.
1 fact I learned
I learned a new ocean animal called a Dugong. I average size is 9 feet and it can dive 130 feet down in the ocean. The oldest Dugongs are 70 years old. They are related to manatees and elephants and are often called sea cows. These majestic creatures are close to extinction.
1 more fact I learned.
1 animal I didn't know about is a hag fish. They are acient fish without jaws or real fins. Also called slime fish and can turn a 5 gallon bucket of water into slime in minutes. The longest Hagfish was 50 inches and the shortest is 7 inches. wallets, purses, and hand bags made out os eel skin our usally made of Hagfish skin
A third fact I learned
Another animal I learned about is a Marine Iguana. A female is 2 feet and males is 4.3 feet. It maximum diving depth is 33 feet. Its the worlds only ocean lizard. Also called imp of darkness because they are black and grey and contain red spot in mating season. It also has very sharp teeth and claws but not dangerous.
A second thing I knew
Something in the book I new about are Sea Horses. I knew that they have curly tails so when there tired they wrap there tail around something so they can rest. They are one of the worlds slowest swimmers. They like to mate when there is a full moon. They mate by connecting there tails and twirling and at they end he so the girl the empty pouch and she drops they end in the pouch. They are they only males that can get pregnant. Can blend in with the thing they are touching to hide.
A third thing I knew.
I knew about Starfish and there our over 2,000 species, most with 5 arms. They largest Starfish is a Sunflower Starfish that is 3 feet arm span. The Starfish with the most arms is the Labidiaster Annulatus (up to 50). Starfish live in every part of the ocean. They eat mussels. clams, or a ailing fish. It can eat things bigger than there mouth.

5 words I learned and Definitions
If you didn't know about something in the ocean and you wanted to then you find it in the book and it gives you facts about it and tells you what it is.
I didn't know what a dugong was so when I read about I learned it was related to Manatees and Elephants. And also called sea cow.
The book is like a dictionary about the ocean.
I enjoy learning about the facts about the ocean. Its interesting because the creatures are cool and funny looking. I learned about new animals that are weird looking like a hagfish etc.
Has wrote a lot of books about everything
Writer of a company called Basher science
Ever fact in the book is true
The first text feature that helped me was the title
The second was the title on each page.
The third was the index.
The fourth was the glossary.
The fifth was the facts on each page
The sixth is the real name or biggest and smallest at the bottom of the page.
3 conclusions
1:Hagfish are eels that can turn a 5 gallon of water into slime in minutes. When purses, wallets, and hand bags are made of eel skin they are made of hagfish
2:Dugong are 9 feet animals. They are related to manatees and elephants.And called sea cows. they are also very close to exsintion.
3: Angler fish are usally 2-4 inches and they live in the deep part of the ocean. They can't see so they use they lights on there heads to communicate.
