Ocean explorers By: Kaitlynn and Kiara Hermit Crab Bonnet Head Sharks Loggerhead Sea Turtle Cownose Ray Northern right whale The Red lionfish The end! these sharks are found near the North Carolina to Brazil. habitat:Indo-Pacific species that occurs in the eastern Indian Ocean from theCocos-Keeling Islands to western Australia found in the Western Atlantic and Gulf Of Mexico
around the coast of Latin America Fun Facts:
The northern right whale produces a distinctive V-shaped spout of spray when it exhales. The spout was easily identified by whalers.
It is called the “right whale” by early whalers because it swam slowly, floated when dead and yielded large volumes of whale oil.
This whale filters tiny plankton from the water using large baleen plates along the sides of its mouth. The resource we use was: http://www.georgiaaquarium.org/explore-the-aquarium/interact/exhibits/georgia-explorer/ History: They live in shells and are spread out throughout the world. The shells to protect thier body they change thier shells when thier size. When there size changes. They like to be in habitats such as mud clogs,tide pools,and Oyster Sea, Some like to stay off shore.They usaully feed on dead plants and animals also living algae. Physical Characterics: The hermit crab is characterized by a long, soft asymmetrical abdomen that it coils into an empty snail shell for protection.•The crab exhibits a variety of characteristics that can be used to distinguish among the various species (e.g., relative claw size, coloration and striped appendages, snail shell type, superficial hair). Fun Facts!
Different species of hermit crabs prefer different types of snail shells. Some choose lightweight shells that allow faster, more agile movement. Others prefer larger and heavier shells that provide more protection Life Cycle:•In the hermit crab, the fertilized eggs are attached to the abdominal appendages of the female and the eggs hatch into free-swimming zoea larvae. Hermit crab Always found near the coast of North America and around The Gulf of Mexico
only grow to be 3-5 feet.
they are two toned and colors vary from grey to dark blue-ish purple.
relitively harmless to human habitat: They are found in the shallow coastal waters all over the world in the Alantic and Indain waters or at muddy bottoms near the Gulf Of Mexico Physical Characterics:The upper shell of the loggerhead is reddish brown color and the upperside is yellow. They can wiegh from 200lbs. to 350lbs. and they are around 3 ft long. They have NO teeth tp crunch food they have to use thier jaw. Life Cycle: They emerge at night (female). They go and dug a hole to lay thier youngs in and then leave and cover them up it usally takes up to 45 to 60 days for them to hatch. Raccons get into the eggs alot and eat them on about half of them survive. Fun Facts:
*The logger head sea turtle was named for its large head
*They can live for 100 years
*Thier nesting season starts in april to early october
*Young turtles consumes Jellies...
The loggerheads are also endangered Physical Characteristics
The red lionfish is conspicuous for its elongated fin elements and distinctive color pattern
It has a fleshy "tentacle" above each eye and tentacles below the mouth. •This lionfish ranges in length from 12 to 15 inches (30 - 38 cm). It can weigh 2.6 lbs. (1.2 kg).
The red lionfish is one of the apex predators in the coral reef environment. life cycle:During breeding, one male may aggregate with three to eight females. The male’s coloration darkens and its stripes are less apparent. Females with ripening eggs become paler and, presumably, easier for the male to identify.Spawning takes place near the surface where the female releases eggs that are immediately fertilized by the male. The mass of planktonic eggs hatch in about 36 hours. fun facts:
The red lionfish uses its broad, feathery pectoral fins to corner its prey which it then grabs and swallows whole.
Six lionfish escaped into the sea in South Florida in 1992 when Hurricane Andrew destroyed a shore-front home. Thanks for watching Hope you enjoyed! Fun Facts
The cownose ray uses its pectoral fins (wings) to stir up the bottom to find clams, shrimp, crabs and other small invertebrate prey.
It uses its strong, plate-like teeth for crushing the shells of its prey. The cownose ray can reach four to five feet across. It has a brown to olive coloration on its back and a white underside. Its tail is whip-like and has one or two barbs at its base near the body. It has a uniquely shaped forehead that resembles a cow’s nose, hence its name.is a species of eagle ray found throughout a large part of the western Atlantic and Caribbean, from New England, USA to southern Brazil (East Atlantic populations are now generally considered a separate species. The northern right whale is one of the most amazing marine animals that appear along the Georgia coast. Every winter, these large mammals migrate from their breeding grounds off New England and Nova Scotia to the coastal waters of Georgia and North Florida to give birth to their calves physical characteritics:Weighing up to 200,000 lbs. and reaching lengths of over 50 feet, the northern right whale seems almost invulnerable. Despite their formidable appearance, these whales are critically endangered. Life cycle :Females give birth to a single calf that may be 13 to 15 feet long and weigh about 2,000 lbs. Life cycle:Mating takes place in late summer before the rays leave the Bay for the winterFemales give birth to a single live young, called a pup, in mid-June the following summerAt birth, pups are about 11-18 inches long The End!
