Underwater Creatures

     I love underwater creatures so the next thing I am going to be talking about is creatures that live underwater.

      The first creature I will be talking about is a seahorse. For a seahorse the baby comes out of the dad and not the mom. There are almost 25 different species of seahorses. Tiny, spiny plates cover a seahorse's body all the way down to their curled, flexible tails. The baby seahorse is almost the size of a jelly bean. This is a picture of a rainbow seahorse.

     The next creature I will be talking about is a whale. A whale is a mammal so it needs air to breath but a whale can hold it's breath under water longer then us. To breath, whales have a blowhole on the top of there heads. There are lots of species of whales out there, however they are classified according to the way they feed: baleen whales and toothed whales. Examples of baleen whales are humpback whales, gray whale, and common minke. Toothed whales include killer whales, strap-toothed whales, and spade-toothed whales.

     Can you guess what the next creature is? Well, good job if you got it correct. It's a starfish. Starfish  are marine invertebrates. Did you know there are about 1,500 different types of species? A starfish has five arms, though some species have a larger number of arms. Many of the species are brightly coloured with shades of red or brown and others can be orange, gray and blue.

     The final creature I will be talking about is a jellyfish. Some people in some countries eat jellyfish. They have been here over millions of years ago even before dinosaurs. Jellyfish have no brains because it doesn't think and does not have a heart because it is a simple creature. Jellyfish also does not have an organ or blood.
