Animals are held captive against their will every day, all around the world. They’re deprived of the life they could have in their society or the wild. Over the centuries, animals have suffered from cruelty from humans Animals have been inflicted with pain from humans for reasons other than self-defense.. In a majority of cases, they have even been abused for someone’s own personal amusement or personal benefit or financial profit.

Blackfish was created by Gabriela Cowperthwaite, a documentary filmmaker who for more than 12 years has directed, produced and written a variety of real life stories, and premiered in January of 2013 at the Sundance Film Festival.

Despite having a beautiful and majestic appearance, lionfish are some of the most dangerous creatures in the ocean. With very sharp and pointed spines covering their entire body and a zebra-like pattern, it is not hard to see why they are visually appealing, nor is it hard to see why they pose a threat to humans. These spines are not only sharp, but also venomous. A sting from a lionfish can lead to side effects ranging from minor ones such as headaches, to more harmful ones such as heart failure or temporary paralysis. However, their stings are usually not fatal. Lately though, lionfish have been causing harm to more than just humans.
It’s a beautiful day at the beach, the sun is shining down on you as you float and drift on top of the waves. As you lay there without a care in the world, you are suddenly interrupted by a massive swarm of jellyfish; also known as a bloom. Not only does this send you into sudden terror, it also causes a much bigger threat to the ecosystem below you. The excessive growth of jellyfish swarm drastically lowers the population of fish eggs in the ecosystem. Because of this, fishermen lose millions of dollars. People in local communities are figuring out ways to solve this mass production.
I can vividly remember playing a game of ‘Go-Fish!’ with my Father. I began to grumble because my hand contained no matches and all around bad cards. My father consoled me by saying, “It's not about the cards you're dealt, but about how you play the hand.” As a 5

An entire new world, different from our own exists beneath the surface of our oceans. This life is full of color, shapes, sizes, wonder, and even darkness. Much of this life has yet to be explored but we still know that beneath the waves exist the most beautiful creatures and the most bizarre. Magical areas such as the coral reef and mysterious areas such as the depths of the ocean are homes to over 700,000 species that live in the ocean. This includes the eighty percent of the ocean that has yet to be explored. Even though there may be separate oceans on this planet, they are still interconnected by a body of salt water. No area of the ocean is the same, which brings us to the wonderful fact that so many different species are able to flourish
The Disturbed Life of Albert Fish and What Fueled This Gruesome Behavior Albert Fish was born and raised in Washington, D.C. on May 19th, 1870, to his parents Randall, and Ellen. Fish’s father was American, and his mother was Irish American. His father was forty-three years older than his mother, and was seventy-five at the time of fishes’ birth.

The process of regeneration describes the replacement, renewal, and restoration of lost body parts.

It was interesting to read that the hypothesis provided by the scientists turned out to be opposite of what happened to Valley Creek. The macroinvertebrates were already living in a low quality creek full of pollution, so I would have also expected their population to decrease after introducing a predator to their environment. The crayfish reminded me of the keystone species sea stars, that I learned about through a lecture on communities and ecosystems. The study conducted on crayfish was similar to a study conducted on sea stars, except they were removed from coastlines instead of being added to see the effect they had. The sea stars were believed to have a negative effect on the coastlines since they preyed on mussels, but it turned out
One of the most mystifying creatures of the deep blue sea, the cuttlefish is not a fish it is some squid-like mollusks.

It would seem to be a safe assumption that growing up many children took part in the cloud game, it may also be a safe assumption that adults still partake in that same game from time to time. The good old fashion cloud game, in which an individual spots a cloud and based on the characteristics that one observes and interprets those characteristics to be, the individual makes heads or tails of what it looks like. It can be kind of comical or frustrating, however, when the individual tries to get another person to see the exact same thing. The individual might start out by pointing in the air to indicate the direction one should be looking at, followed by a description of a particular attribute. Many times, the individual may not be able to pin point what the other is referring to and requests additional information or direction. Frustrated the individual may instruct the other to look again while providing addition attributes, which goes on until either, one gives up or the other has identified the cloud. In instances such as, this it is also plausible that not only is this a potential matter in which
My animal is a swordfish a swordfish is known for its long bill like nose it can live up to 9 years until dying. It migrates to many different oceans to other different oceans but it always goes from colder water to warmer water.
