Tremoctopus violaceus by Katarina M. Mangold, Richard E. Young and Michael Vecchione: The blanket octopus is characterized by two longer arms which are connected by an extensive web. (The slender tips of the arms can be seen at the arrow.) These arms and web can be used to distract or cling to a predator and can break off along fracture lines in a way similar to a lizard's tail. Check out the video of a blanket octopus filmed in the Sea of Japan. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cpME-jNSC2U…

Blue Dragon Nudibranch / They feed on the poisonous Man of War Jellyfish, collecting the animal's toxins and storing them in little sacs on the end of their feather-like "fingers." The Blue Dragon can produce a much more powerful and deadly sting than the Man of War due to its ability to store the poison.

Flaring the gills that give the species its name, a frilled shark swims at Japan's Awashima Marine Park on Sunday, January 21, 2007. Sightings of living frilled sharks are rare, because the fish generally remain thousands of feet beneath the water's surface.

My first research paper was about Great White Sharks. I learned how to research, and avoid plagiarizing. The paper was about their feeding habits, their motives behind a shark attack on a human, and their killing techniques. The reason I researched shark attacks and Great White Sharks was from watching Jaws as a child.
