Sea and Ocean Animals

An aquatic animal is an animal, either vertebrate or invertebrate, which lives in the water for most or all of its lifetime. 

The Blue Whale is the biggest animal on earth known to man on both land and sea. 

A rare species of nautilus, a marine mollusc, has been found by researchers for the first time in 31 years. It has been suggested that the Allonautilus scrobiculatus could be the rarest animal in the world.

Scientists estimate that about one million species of animals live in the ocean. But most of them—95 percent—are invertebrates, animals that don’t have a backbone, such as jellyfish and shrimp.

The box jellyfish is widely regarded as the most poisonous animal in the world. It floats in the waters surrounding Asia and Australia, and is so transparent that it is nearly invisible if you are not looking for it. 

  • Jellyfish have been around for more than 650 million years, which means that they out date both dinosaurs and sharks.
  • Dolphins sleep with only half of their brain and with one eye open so they can watch for predators and other threats.
  • An Octopus has three hearts and the color of its blood is blue.
  • At 188 decibels, the calls of blue whales is the loudest sound made by any animal on the planet.
  • Seahorses are the only animals in which the male, not the female, gives birth and care for their young.
  • A shrimp’s heart is in their head
  • Sea sponges have no head, mouth, eyes, feelers, bones, heart, lungs, or brain, yet they are alive.
  • Turtles live on every continent except Antarctica.

The Saltwater Crocodile has the strongest bite force of any animal in the sea.

The Sargasso Sea is located in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, just a little north of the equator. The water in the Sargasso Sea is one of the clearest in the ocean, with underwater visibility of up to and incredible 200 feet.
