Fascinating Marine Facts

Hi everyone today I am not going to be talking about animal captivity. Instead I am going to be talking about the ocean and the wonderful animals inside it, so sit back relax and enjoy….

 

Fist lets talk about the ocean where all sea animals live. The ocean is my favorite habitat as you have probably figured out by now. The ocean is like a lake but is way bigger its salt water and there is  bigger animals living inside it. The ocean is salt water but lakes rivers and ponds do not have salt water. When\if you go snorkeling you will find that the ocean is deep…very deep and the deeper you go the more murky and dark it gets but when you don’t go very deep there is colorful fish coral and the water is brighter.  In the ocean there are different types of whales  { killer whale, humpback whale or blue whale} seals turtles sharks and many more. And last but not least those big boats and cruises that you go on pollute the ocean and hurt the sea animals in the ocean because the engine is filled with all kinds of chemicals and dirty stuff. And that is the end of learning about the ocean hope you enjoyed it!

 

Next lets talk about whales but we will talk about the obvious types of whales like

  • killer whale/orca
  • humpback and
  • the blue whale

there are two types of whales

  • baleen whales
  • and toothed whales

toothed whales are whales like

  • the killer whale
  • and the dolphin

Yes the dolphin is a whale…a toothed whale and finally the baleen whales are

  • the humpback whale
  •  the blue whale and many more

The largest animal on earth  is the blue whale. its heart weight as much as an elephant and it was even bigger then dinosaurs! crazy!

 

Next lets talk about turtles…..  Turtles are not that big…They are not like whales whales are the giants of the sea and they are nothing like sharks sharks have sharp teeth and sometimes attack people. Sometimes if you have been scuba diving with turtles then sometimes you will find that the turtle only has three fins, this is because a shark has bit off of the turtles fin  ): Turtles normally eat coral. Another fun fact is that there are little fish that clean the turtles shells…Very cool! Hope now you plan to visit a tropical place and see some turtles!

 

Finally lets talk about the boys favorite animal…..The shark.

The shark is a vicious animal and can be found munching on a turtle…. YIKES!!!!! Also did you know that there are more then 465 species of sharks living in the ocean! now that’s cool! Even though sharks don’t have a very good eye site they still have a great sense of smell. they find their prey and then attack! And one last fact about the shark…..You know how when we loose a tooth it dose not grow back? Well when sharks loose a tooth (which is pretty much every week) they grow back! how interesting is that?

 

well I hope you enjoyed listening/reading about the ocean and all its awesome spectacular animals that still roam the ocean to this day.

My Friend Tilikum

Hey guys, If you don’t already know this news then you are about to find out, so here it goes…..Tilikum at Seaworld is not doing so well.  He has a serious lung infection and there has not been a cure found to this disease.  Sadly, he is dying.   Since Tilikum has been in captivity for so long (almost 33 years) and is now near the end of his life,  just let him free. I mean one second in the wild is worth way more than all the years spent in prison. I’m not just talking about Orcas, I’m talking dolphins and beluga whales too.  What have all these animals done to deserve this? Especially Tilikum. If you let Tilikum go in the wild and he dies 5 mins later it will be better because he will have the ocean and freedom to remember when he dies, but if he dies in captivity all he will have is a stupid little tank to remember.

So here is what I have to say to you Seaworld:  You have taken one right step in not breeding Orcas anymore,  take one more big step and Free Tilikum!!!  Please!!!

Think about what I am saying. I believe that if we work together then anything is possible.
