The Mako shark is a very unique species of cartilaginous fish in the Lamnidae family (Col-Spector, Audrey, “MAKO SHARK- Enchanted Learning Software"). This pelagic swimmer is the fastest shark that has ever been observed in the ocean, clocking in at speeds up to 60 mph (Col-Spector). Its streamlined body allows it to swim at faster speeds than most other fish, making it a highly successful predator. “Schooling fish, including tuna, herring, mackerel, swordfish, and porpoise” are popular among the diet of the Makos (Col-Spector). Although they like to prey specifically on schooling fish, Makos eat just about anything they come across (Col-Spector). The Mako sharks physical features and social characteristics is what sets it apart from other species of the deep.

When society thinks about starfish, perch, chordate, and fetal pig they become extremely curious about how their bodies operate because of how they are made up. I will give a brief synopsis of all animals before going into major detail about them. According to the online website named dictionary.com, Starfish are any echinoderm of the class Asteroidea, having the body radially arranged, usually in the form of a star, with five or more rays or arms radiating from a central disk; asteroid (dictionary.com). It is known that a chordate is an animal belonging to the phylum Chordata, composed of true vertebrates and animals having a notochord (dictionary.com). According to research, a fetal pig is an animal in the phylum Chordata and class Mammalia (dictionary.com). A perch is known to be a certain kind of fish with very spiny fins (dictionary). Starfish, perch, chordate, and fetal pig are some very interesting animals that possess some exclusive qualities both similar and different.
At New Melones Reservoir, despite the continuing snow melt, the water level dropped another foot last week. The water clarity is good and the temperature is slowly coming up, now averaging 76 to 81-degrees. Trout are showing signs of schooling over deep water and feeding on shad minnows. Trollers have been finding trout at 40 to 60 feet with Speedy Shiners, Needlefish, and ExCel lures. Night fishermen have been doing well by anchoring over fairly deep water and lowering their light to about 20 feet. This attracts plankton, which in turn, attracts shad, which will attract larger fish. Live minnows and nightcrawlers are choice baits. The kokanee numbers may be down, but the quality is good with some going 15 to 18 inches. Bladed lures may work well in deeper water as they create vibration which will attract fish. Scented corn on each hook is important. Big trout winner at Glory Hole Sports was, again, Bob James, of Murphys, with a 2-pound rainbow caught at 55 feet in the main lake. Big catfish winner was John Tennant, of Twain Harte, with an 11-pound, 15-ounce fish caught with sardine bait in the main lake. Bass fishing is good for those who specialize in that type of fishing. Hayden Lee, of Angels Camp, recently caught a 10 pound Largemouth Bass on a topwater lure and he had no net in the boat. He and a friend were able to boat the fish for photos before release.
If a bull shark and hammerhead shark were to fight, the bull shark would win. Bull sharks are the most dangerous sharks in the world! Along with this, bull sharks have special adaptations, and they hunt in shallow waters. Although hammerhead sharks have great vision, the shape of their heads, and the placement of their eyes cause them to have a huge blind spot right in the middle of their head. This makes it easier for other sharks to win a fight against the hammerhead.
Reproduction usually occurs once a year for hammerhead sharks. Male hammerhead sharks start to bite the female hammerhead sharks when they are ready to mate. Female hammerhead sharks give birth to their cubs in the warm water. They are able to have 12-15 cubs at once. Not all cubs will make it out of birth from the mother. The female hammerheads immediately leave the pups alone to take care of themselves. A good percentage of the cubs will survive after birth and it is unusual for all cubs to survive.
Who wouldn’t want a Hammerhead Shark as a pet? Even though I think sharks are awesome, and other people agree there’s a few little things you might want to consider before you think you could have one as your man’s best friend. The rest of this paper is about the reasons why you shouldn’t have a Hammerhead Shark as your new BFWF. (Best Friend With Fins.)
Bull sharks are large sharks that prefer shallow waters less than 100 feet deep. They are often found in murky waters. This is a perfect recipe for shark attacks, as bull sharks prefer habitats where humans are swimming, wading or fishing.
The first time I felt the recoil of a shotgun coincide with the simultaneous drop and flop of a turkey I knew I was hooked. This was all the way back in the fall of 2005 when I shot my very first turkey alongside my father. That day started an addiction that has since intensified and spread to not only turkeys but almost all of Missouri's highly sought after species. Hunting, conservation, and the great outdoors have always been embedded in the hearts of my family. I am no different and plan to dedicate my life to Missouri’s wildlife the same way they have.
Do you know what a mako shark is? They are curious beings and are closely related to the great white shark. Tagged by ocearch, Lazarus and other sharks are helping the ocean’s ecosystem.
Parts of Amy Tan’s Saving Fish From Drowning are historically accurate, yet other parts of the book have glaring historical inaccuracies. In an interview with “The Guardian”, Tan explains that she was inspired to write Saving Fish From Drowning after she learned journalists were not allowed in Burma. Tan wanted to get readers involved with the human rights issues surrounding Burma’s military regime. However, Amy Tan was nervous to write a book that was drastically different than her other books she had previously written. Consequently, Tan added many artistic touches, many of which damaged the book’s historical accuracy, so that readers would be interested in the book. Additionally, Amy Tan presents the information through the narrator, Bibi
