As Pi reaches the second level of the hierarchy of needs, he finds himself on the level of safety he needs to figure out how to stay safe while on the life boat. While Pi was on the boat he was so scared of Richard Parker that he had jumped off the boat to go in the water, but then realizes that there are predators just as scary as Richard parker or maybe even worse that he has to avoid to staying safe. “I noticed the presence of sharks around the life boat…The sharks were makos-swift, point-snouted predators with long murderous teeth that protruded noticeable from their mouths” (Martel 179). Once Pi tries to overcome his fears and tames Richard like a zookeeper would do and once he does, he ends up having a companion that helps Pi get through the struggle to survive. Pi finds an island where he is safe and is able to regain his strength but as he finds a tooth in the algae, Pi
The female seahorse makes the eggs. When the male and female mate, the female deposits her eggs inside of the seahorse's pouch. The eggs are fertilized by the male inside of his pouch. This pouch regulates water salinity, blood flow and temperature. The seahorse can deliver anywhere from five to 1,000 babies at one time. The seahorse species are one of the factors that affect how many babies the seahorse will deliver.
If we are in deep waters we stay near the surface. We live in warm tropical waters in the Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific oceans. We mostly eat sponges, anemones, squid, shrimp, and of course, jellyfish!
The semipalmated plover is also from the Order of the Charadriiformes and are also of least concern. These can swim short distances across small water channels or inlets during foraging while on migration. They can also run several steps while stopping, staring and quickly snatching its prey. Stops, stares, then quickly snatch its prey. They prey on insects, marine worms, crustaceans, and small mollusks in open sites near sub-arctic lakes, in and around marshes and rivers, inland on dry and gravel or sparsely vegetated sites. They breed during the months of March to June and is known to inhabit North and Central America as well as western Caribbean. The osprey are from the Order of Accipitriformes and are of least concern. Their size serve
The american water shrew also known as the Sorex palustris is the “world’s smallest warm-blooded diving species.” The american water shrew is rather large. It has a slender body covered with brownish-black fur. It has a long tail and a long pointy moveable snout. The total length of this critter can range from 130mm to 170mm, and the weight can be from 8 grams all the way to 18 grams. Both the female and male critters seem to have the same appearance but the male water shrew tends to be longer and heavier then female water shrews. The color of the critter can vary, it is generally a brownish-black color or a grayish-black or the dorsal side. On the ventral side it tends to be a silvery-grey. The color of their fur seems to change with season.
Hatchlings are 1 inch long while adults are 8-10 inches long. With this breed, the females are dominant in size than the males. Females begin to hatch eggs when they are 6
The mating season is year round and once they’re pregnant the, length of gestation is one hundred thirty days to one hundred ninety days. (The gestation for a human is two times longer.) They only have one offspring at birth. After birth the young latch onto the backs of their mother and stay until a year of age.

How does it reproduce? Its sexes are separate but occasional hermaphrodite. Moreover, it usually reproduces during the first three months in a year. At around 25mm in diameter and 2 years
The nesting season runs from April to Mid-July. And, sometime between about 45 to 70 days after being laid, the eggs hatch, and the little ones make the perilous journey across the beach, into the surf, and eventually to the open ocean, desperately dodging predators along the way. Their survival at this point depends on sheer numbers and making it to the water before the hungry seagulls and crabs can snatch them up.
Spawning occurs once a year in the spring, mid-April through early June in this region, with ideal water temperature of 14.5-24°C. Females prefer a more gravelly substrate when laying eggs, which is the type of habitat they already reside in. If they can’t find this substrate, they will migrate to the right location. Males excavate bowl-shaped pits in the gravel close to riffles and guard them until a female arrives. Females typically choose bigger males if they can. Once spawning is successful, they both leave; no care by either parent is given to the eggs. A maximum of 4,800 eggs are laid and appear bright yellow when fertilized. The eggs hatch in about 3 days, and the young grow very fast. They are quite large by the end of one year, but continue to grow. Central Stonerollers typically live 4-6 years at most (Etnier, 140 and
Mating is believed to occur during a limited “receptive” period prior to the females first nesting emergence. During mating season, males may court a female by nuzzling her head or by gently biting the back of her neck and rear flippers. If the female does not flea, the male attaches himself to the back of the females shell by gripping her top shell with the claws in his front flippers. He then folds his long tail under her shell to copulate. Copulatoon can take place either on the surface or
