Facts 

Cuttlefish

 

Skin

Cuttlefish are sometimes referred to as the "chameleons of the sea" because of their remarkable ability to rapidly alter their skin color at will. Cuttlefish change colour and pattern (including the polarization of the reflected light waves), and the shape of the skin to communicate to other cuttlefish, to camouflage themselves, and as a deimatic display to warn off potential predators.

 

Cuttlefish are able to rapidly change the color of their skin to match their surroundings and create chromatically complex patterns, apparently without the ability to perceive colour, through some other mechanism which is not yet understood.

 

They have been seen to have the ability to assess their surroundings and match the color, contrast and texture of the substrate even in total darkness.

Despite their name, cuttlefish are not fish but mollusks.

They belong to the class Cephalopoda, which also includes squid, octopodes, and nautiluses.

 

They generally range in size from 15 to 25 cm (5.9 to 9.8 in),

the largest species, Sepia apama, reaching 50 cm (20 in) in mantle length

and over 10.5 kg (23 lb) in mass.

The average life expectancy of a cuttlefish is about one to two years.

Recent studies indicate cuttlefish are among the most intelligent invertebrates.

Cuttlefish also have one of the largest brain-to-body size ratios of all invertebrates.

Octopus

Using a network of pigment cells and specialized muscles in its skin, the common octopus can almost instantaneously match the colors, patterns, and even textures of its surroundings.

 

When discovered, an octopus will release a cloud of black ink to obscure its attacker's view, giving it time to swim away. The ink even contains a substance that dulls a predator's sense of smell, making the fleeing octopus harder to track.

The giant Pacific octopus grows bigger and lives longer than any other octopus species. The size record is held by a specimen that was 30 feet (9.1 meters) across and weighed more than 600 pounds (272 kilograms).

 

They live to be about four years old, with both males and females dying soon after breeding.

 

Like the other members of the octopus family, though, they use special pigment cells in their skin to change colors and textures, and can blend in with even the most intricately patterned corals, plants, and rocks.

 

They hunt at night, surviving primarily on shrimp, lobsters, fish, crabs, crayfish, and mollusks.

They will sometimes use their ink to disorient their victims before attacking. 

They also have been known to attack and eat sharks as well as birds.

There are around 300 species of octopus in the world

 

The octopus also change colors according to its mood, Blue if it’s exited, pale for fear, red for angry

They are incredibly flexible; whatever its eye can pass through its whole body can pass through.

Green sea turtle

Like other sea turtles,

Green sea turtles migrate long distances between feeding sites and nesting sites.

 

Some swim more than 2,600 kilometres (1,600 mi) to reach their spawning grounds.

Mature turtles often return to the exact beach from which they hatched.

 

Females usually mate every two to four years.

Males, on the other hand, visit the breeding areas every year, attempting to mate.

 

Diet

Adult green sea turtles mostly eat marine plant life such as kelp and algae, while juveniles have a more carnivorous diet.

Fully grown sea turtle have very little predators,

but the tiger shark is one of them.

 

The tiger shark waits for the turtle to go up for air and attack from the bottom.

Some species fall on the tiger shark menu more often than other species,

 

for example, the loggerhead, researchers think the reason for that is the loggerhead spends more time floating on the surface to breath than other species of turtles.

Orcas

Orcas belong in the open ocean, not stuck living in cramped tanks performing tricks for human amusement.

More than 2,100 dolphins and whales are being held in captivity at 343 facilities in 63 countries around the world.

 

Organizations that keeps them captive for the amusement of paying customers, say that they live from 25 to 35 years old, even in the wild.

But in fact

Female life expediency is around a 100 years of age

and the male lives from 50 to 60 years old

 

And for the collapsed fin, they say it happens to 25% of them as they get older

But in fact

Nearly 100% of captive male eventually have the collapse dorsal fine

when in the wild, it is less then 1%

Their brain is very developed, they have a section of the brain humans don’t have In big part responsible for emotions
