Deep in the west coast rainforest there is an endangered species called The Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus. They are 30-33 cm amphibious, that scout their lives through touch and sight. The Tree Octopus spends the beginning of its life in the rainforest. The rainforest has so much drizzle and dew, it keeps the threatened species from becoming shriveled and dead. The exceptional and profound creature has a very large brain to body ratio.
Have you ever heard of a Dumbo Octopus? Or even better the Grimpoteuthis. If you haven't, I'm here to reveal to you its species. It’s a rare breed of octopus, which is an aquatic animal that lives deep in the ocean. If you wanted to hear more about it then today is your lucky day. I will be explaining new research and everything there is conducted on this animal.
This paper is about octopus dofleni, which is a bottom-dwelling octopus that lives on coasts of the pacific ocean, from Northern Japan to California. This essay will provide a brief overview of its life, habits and other characteristics of this, intelligent and creative invertebrate and member of the Octopodidae family.
At about 1,600 feet oxygen levels run low. Life still goes on with gills that are more efficient or by minimizing movement. Some animals that live here are swordfish, squid, wolf eels, and some species of cuttlefish. Many organisms that live in this zone are bioluminescent. This zone extends from 650 feet to about 3,300 feet. Some animals living in this zone will rise to the epipelagic zone at night to feed.
An alien with eight great appendages, the octopus, is a carnivore that lives for about one year to two years. It creates ghosts with its ink and can taste with its skin. It has numerous suckers that vary from an octopus to another based on their size. These suckers are like tongues because they contain chemoreceptors that allow them to taste their surroundings as they move across the sea floor. Sever any of its limbs and it will keep moving like a snake. It can completely change its form for three-tenths of a second, and some people may even believe that it can predict the future. This mysterious carnivore pumps blood using three hearts. How fantastic and incredible is that! I was so shocked when I first saw the way this animal act. It can
The Giant Pacific Octopuses are found though out the Pacific Ocean. It’s found north in Alaska, South in Mexico, west in Japan and East in California. So they really can tolerate all kinds of water temperature. It is more likely to find it in tidal pools and they live in the water depth from 110 meters down to 1500m. (Schwab, 1987) They eat fish, lobster, shellfish etc. They crack them open by their mouth. The way they reproduce is that male Octopuses have genital bags inside them. They will insert a hectocotylized arm into the female and then release sperm. The entire process will take 2-3 hours. They could change their skin color to fit into the environment so they really can fit into different conditions. (Anderson, & Mather, 2007)
In Creatures Under the Deep Sea it talks about all kinds of animals from small things like little Octopuses called dumbo to huge things like a Vampire Squid. Vampire squids curl up into a ball when feeling scared or under pressured. The scientific name of this squid is Cephalopod.This creature also has glowing eyes and tentacles. This proves that life can thrive if their is just a little bit of light. The cute little Dumbo Octopus it's called is a little 8 armed creature. The Dumbo Octopus is an animal that lives on the ocean floor which is 9,800 to 13,000 feet deep. They are small creatures, around 8 inches tall. They feed off of worms and other underwater insects. We have only discovered five percent of the ocean, but we have still
The ocean is a very beautiful place. It consist of various different types of creatures and plants. 70% of the earth is made up of the ocean, with an average depth of 12, 400 ft. We have only explored less than 5% of the ocean. The ocean has a 17 °C (62.6* F) temperature, and has a latitude of 14.5994 °s and longitude of 28.6731 °w. The deepest part of the ocean is the Mariana Trench, which is about 36,000 ft. Photons (light) can’t go more than 330 ft below the water’s surface. 94% of life on Earth is aquatic, one living in a pond or aquarium. All the creatures of the sea must survive harsh conditions, predators, lack of oxygen, too much pressure, scares food, lack of sunlight, and extremely cold parts of the ocean. Certain types of plants,
Since Freshwater biomes are found all over the world, the types of plants and animals that live in these waters can be different. Some examples of plants that may inhabit a Freshwater biome are grass, spike rush, water lilies, cattail, and sometimes trees. Most plants living in these waters are not recognized by humans. Animals that live in these biomes are frogs, turtles, snakes, fish, and sometimes alligators. Insects like mosquitos also inhabit these biomes greatly. Animals such as raccoons and earthworms live on the land surrounding the biome, but depend on the biome to survive. Some animals, such as beavers, live in both the water and the land surrounding it. Algae also plays a big role in a Freshwater biome ecosystem.
The marine biome is located in the Pacific, Atlantic, Indian, Arctic, and Southern oceans. It is also located in other smaller gulfs and bays. Its average temperature in most of the oceans is about 39℉ (4°C). In the north and south, and in different seasons the temperature is different. In the
Animals that live in oceanic ecosystems are: Sharks and rays, many varieties of fish, dolphins, sea cucumbers and turtles. Plant life includes: kelp, seaweed, sea grass, algae and coral
Have you ever seen or heard of a cool, weird, but yet fascinating creature? This creature is called the southern blue-ringed octopus. I will tell you some interesting facts about this fascinating creature. The southern blue-ringed octopus got its name from its blue rings. The southern blue-ringed octopus doesn’t always have its blue rings, in fact the octopus’s rings can be different colors like light brown, grey, and even yellow. On the upper side of the southern blue ringed octopus is rough feeling with a lot of wrinkles. When the southern blue-ringed octopus feels threatened or gets disturbed the rings change to blue. The cells on the southern blue-ringed octopus that are blue are called chromophores.
The Aquatic biome is the most significant out of all of the five biomes. Water is essential and important for life here on Earth. It’s what we all need in order to survive. Water also supports life, and many different species live in it, or for some parts of their life. Since water covers one-thirds of the Earth, the temperature of the aquatic biome tends to be humid and slightly cool. It is fairly constant so it can be able to tolerate life. This region is filled with so many different species of animals some big and some even small. The Aquatic biome is broken into two regions freshwater and marine
