Whale Shark - A slow-moving filter feeding shark and the largest extant fish species. The whale shark holds many records for sheer size in the animal kingdom, most notably being by far the largest living non-mammalian vertebrate, rivaling many of the largest dinosaurs in weight. The whale shark is found in tropical and warm oceans and lives in the open sea with a lifespan of about 70 years. Inhabits all tropical and warm-temperate seas and primarily pelagic. Estimated at 30-50ft normally.
Sea Squirt: Are marine filter feeders with a saclike morphology. In their respiration and feeding they take in water through an incurrent (or inhalant) siphon and expel the filtered water through an excurrent (or exhalant) siphon. Most adult tunicates are sessile and attached to rocks or similarly suitable surfaces on the ocean floor; others such as salps, doliolids and pyrosomes swim in the pelagic zone as adults. Various species are commonly known as sea squirts or sea pork.
Koran Angelfish: The adult semicircle angelfish is a pale brownish-green colour. It is a deep-bodied, laterally compressed fish that can grow to a length of 14 in. The mouth is positioned just above the tip of the snout and the eyes are set half way up a long straight forehead. The scales have blue bases which gives the body a speckled effect. The fins, except for the pectorals, are rimmed in blue and so are the cheek, operculum and spine.
Bull Shark: Also known as the Zambezi shark. Commonly found worldwide in warm, shallow waters along coasts and in rivers. Known for its aggressive nature, predilection for warm shallow water, and presence in brackish and freshwater systems including estuaries and rivers. Can thrive in both saltwater and freshwater and can travel far up rivers. Responsible for the majority of near-shore shark attacks, including many attacks attributed to other species. Can reach from 11 to 13 ft in length.
