Dolphins They are mammals that need air to breathe. They rise to the water’s surface every few minutes. They are between four and twenty feet long. Under their skin is a layer of fat that is called, “blubber” that keeps them warm. View the parts of a dolphin. Back to Ocean Animals

A dorsal fin which is on top of the dolphin's back is used for balancing. Back to dolphin
The flippers on each side of the dolphin are used to help steer. Back to dolphin
The two lobes on the dolphin's tail are called flukes. These push the dolphin through the water at speeds of 3-7 miles per hour. It can swim as fast as 22 miles per hour for short distances. Back to dolphin
The dolphin's beak-shaped snout is called a rostrum. It may have anywhere from 12 to 200 teeth, which none will be lost in their lifetime. Back to dolphin
The dolphin has eyes on either side of its head. Back to dolphin
Located on top of a dolphin's head is a blowhole. A dolphin must rise to the surface every couple of minutes to get air, or it would die. Back to dolphin
Whales eat fish, squid and other small marine animals. Whales can grow to be 100 feet long and weigh 200 pounds. There are more than 40 different kinds of whales. Back to Ocean Animals
Sea turtles must swim to the ocean surface to breathe every few minutes. When they are resting, they can remain underwater for as long as 2 hours without breathing. Sea Turtles are carnivores, which means they eat meat. Back to Ocean Animals
Click on a fish to learn more about it. Back to Ocean Animals
Stone fish are the deadliest fish. Their bodies camouflage them well against coral and mud and allow them to surprise small fish and other prey. Found in tropical waters, stonefish use their 13 poisonous spines along their backs only in self-defense. Back to fish
Deep sea anglers have lures that glow in the dark. They use these lures to attract other fish. They are masters of disguise as they bury themselves in sand and hide among the rocks. Back to fish
Scorpion fish have venom as deadly as a scorpion. They have large heads, poisonous spiky fins, and spikes so large that they can vacuum up their prey whole as it swims by.
Back to fish Slow and beautiful, the lionfish is one coral reef animal you do not want to cuddle. While their colorful stripes and long fins make them favorites, the lionfish's spines are loaded with venom. An injection of venom from a lionfish can be deadly and will always make you very sick.
Back to Ocean Animals Sharks ruled the oceans even before dinosaurs roamed the land. They have been around for about 400 million years. Sharks have a lifetime supply of teeth. Worldwide, few people are attacked in an average year by sharks.
Octopus can grows to fifteen feet in length and weighs more than one hundred pounds, The smallest, the Californian, only reaches 3/8 to one inch in length. The octopus has a soft body with a well-developed brain, similar to a human's. It is known to be very intelligent Back to Ocean Animals
I will show you animals that live in the desert. Back to Habitats I’ll take you on a desert tour!
Deserts In Our World GobiSonoran Antarctic Desert Back to Deserts
The Gobi Desert is located in Mongolia, China. It is considered a cold desert. It was named Gobi because of all of the small stones called “gobies” located there. Many animals are also found there, like lizards and gazelles. click here if you would like to know more about the Gobi Desert,.Gobi Desert Back
Believe it or not, the average rain fall in the Antarctic is less than 2 inches annually. This desert doesn’t experience a lot of evaporation, so all of the snow that falls stays for hundreds of years! It is the coldest and windiest desert, but some plants like algae will grow there!
Located in southwestern Arizona and southwestern California, this Desert is over 120,00 square miles. It is the hottest desert in North America! In the western part of the desert, seasonal storms allow for flowering plants. It’s a phenomenon that is not limited to this desert, but occurs in other deserts as well! Back
