Sawfishes, also known as carpenter sharks, are a family (Pristidae) of rays characterized by a long, narrow, flattened rostrum, or nose extension, lined with sharp transverse teeth, arranged so as to resemble a saw. Several species of sawfishes can grow to about 7 m.The family as a whole is largely unknown and little studied. The Pristidae are the only living family within the order Pristiformes.
*CRITICALLY ENDANGERED* Sawfish – All species of sawfishes are listed as Endangered or Critically Endangered by the IUCN, and face the threat of extinction as a result of habitat loss and overfishing. More on endangeredsp.com

http://www.npr.org/blogs/pictureshow/2012/04/03/149855377/when-scientists-get-accidentally-artsy A new exhibit at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History lies right at the intersection of art and science, showcasing the inherent beauty of fish skeletons.
Smalltooth sawfish. The long toothy rostrum or saw gives these fish their common name. They use the saw to dig in the sand for crustaceans or to attack prey by vigorously slashing from side to side. Note that the radiograph is a composite: where the two images were spliced, the vertebral column appears to be broken behind the head. (Pristis pectinata)

This orca, named Granny, has roamed countless miles of blue ocean over her 103 years of life in the wild. Whales born in captivity, on the other hand, average a lifespan of only 4.5 years.

Orcas. Killer whale. Largest in the dolphin family. Mammal. Sentient being. Captivity kills. No more captive breeding! Empty the tanks. Pledge not to go to a marine park! Get the facts!
Stop Sea World's greedy exploitation of the majestic ocean mammals! Conserve our oceans and sea life! Orcas, killer whales. Sad.
The Orca, or Killer Whale is a toothed whale and the largest member of the dolphin family. It is highly social ...
This orca, named Granny, is the proof that orca whales or any other animal should not stay at sea world. This 103 year old orca can be compared to any other orca at sea world with the life span of about 4.5 years. And sea world says that's normal!
This orca, named Granny, has roamed countless miles of blue ocean over her 103 years of life in the wild. Whales born in captivity, on the other hand, average a lifespan of only 4.5 years. Animals need their spaces!
Orcas (killer whales) have got to be one of the most beautiful animals!
Orca Whales would definitely be there!! <3 my favorite animal

Portuguese Man O' War, Physalia physalis - a jellyfish-like marine invertebrate of the family Physaliidae.
Portuguese Man O' War (Physalia physalis), is a jellyfish-like marine invertebrate of the family Physaliidae. Its venomous tentacles can deliver a powerful sting. Despite its outward appearance, the Man o' War is not a jellyfish but a siphonophore, which differs from jellyfish in that it is not actually a single creature, but a colonial organism made up of many minute individuals called zooids. >>> AKA when you see one, DONT TOUCH IT
Portuguese Man O'War. Physalia physalis also known as the Portuguese Man O' War is commonly mistaken for a jellyfish. "The Portuguese man-of-war is a siphonophore, an animal that is made up of a colony of organisms working together. They are also, known as bluebottles for the purple-blue color of their pneumatophores" (A Portuguese man of war). The tentacles can extend to 165 feet, although, the average length is 30 feet (Portuguese Man-of War Physalia physalis).
