Whales are mammals just like we are. Just like us, they breathe air, have hair, are warm-blooded, give birth to live young and feed their young milk. Whales can range in size from the Maui dolphin, which is only 1.7 meters long and 1000 kilograms, to the blue whale, which is 34 meters long and weighs 190 tons. Blue whales are also the largest animals on earth. Whales have a streamlined body and a pair of flipper-like forelimbs. While not as agile as seals, whales can also cruise at 20 knots.

Sharks, living in the ocean, are the most ferocious fish in the ocean. Sharks have existed on Earth as early as 300 million years before dinosaurs appeared, they have been around for more than 500 million years, and they have hardly changed in nearly 100 million years. Of course, the whale shark is the largest living shark and the largest living fish. The most ferocious in the ocean is the great white shark, whose powerful jaws can shred almost any prey they live on at the top of the marine life chain.

3. Dolphin

Dolphins are aquatic mammals closely related to whales and porpoises. They evolved in the Miocene about 10 million years ago. They lived widely in shallow seas near the continental shelf and occasionally in fresh water. Feeds mainly on fish and mollusks. Dolphins are small to medium-sized cetaceans. The body length is about 1.5 to 10 meters, and the weight is 50 to 7000 kilograms. Males are usually larger than females. Dolphins do not dive as deep and as long as other cetaceans. Swim fast and juggle. Dolphins swim fast, usually, the fastest speed is about 30-40km per hour, individual species of dolphins can exceed 55km/h and can last for a long time, and they are the long-distance swimming champions in the ocean.


Dolphins can not only save people in times of danger but also are talented performers. They can perform many wonderful programs, such as drilling iron rings, playing basketball, “handshake” and “singing” with people, etc., so various aquariums There are basically dolphin shows, which are deeply loved by the audience.

4. Octopus

Octopus: It is a general term for 252 species of marine mollusks in 26 genera and octopus. It is a temperate mollusk. It lives underwater and can adapt to a water temperature of not lower than 7 °C. The specific gravity of seawater is 1.021. . It grows by feeding on large animal plankton. Widely distributed in tropical and temperate waters of the world’s oceans. Not only can the octopus spray ink out six times in a row, but it can also, like the most agile chameleon, change its color and structure, become like an algae-covered stone, and then suddenly pounce on its prey, which has no time to realize it what’s going on. Octopuses use their nimble arms to crawl among reefs, crevices, and the seabed, sometimes disguising themselves as a bunch of coral, sometimes as a pile of sparkling gravel.The Australian museum "octopus elder brother"

The animatronic octopus we made it a little more cartoonish, and its tentacles can swing up and down or back and forth, which is very popular in amusement parks.


The crocodile is a cold-blooded oviparous animal. Crocodiles are extremely precious animals. Crocodiles are not fish, they are reptiles, the name of crocodiles, or because they play in the water like fish, is named “crocodile”. Crocodiles are among the earliest and most primitive animals ever found alive. Appearing in the Mesozoic Era from Triassic to Cretaceous (about 200 million years ago), it is a ferocious vertebrate reptile. It is a contemporary animal with dinosaurs and is a carnivore. Crocodiles are wild animals with extremely high ecological value, scientific value and economic value. Therefore, some countries in the world are actively developing the crocodile breeding industry. Crocodiles are wait-and-see hunters, they wait until fish or land animals come nearby and then attack. As cold-blooded animals, they are relatively inert, so they can live without food for a long time. They rarely go hunting actively. Although crocodiles appear to be very slow, they are very potent hunters in the water, and various crocodiles have been observed attacking and killing sharks.

7. Turtle

The ancestors of sea turtles appeared on the earth more than 200 million years ago and are well-known “living fossils”. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, sea turtles have a lifespan of up to 152 years and are well-deserved longevity among animals. Because turtles are long-lived animals in the ocean, coastal people still regard turtles as mascots of longevity, just as inland people regard pine cranes as a symbol of longevity, coastal people also regard turtles as a symbol of longevity. There is a saying of “10,000-year-old turtle”. The most unique thing about turtles is their shells. It protects the turtles from being violated and allows them to swim freely on the seafloor. Except for leatherback turtles, all turtles have shells. Leatherback turtles have a thick layer of oily skin on their bodies, showing 5 longitudinal ribs.

Unlike tortoises, sea turtles cannot retract their heads and limbs into their shells. Their limbs are shaped like oars, allowing them to swim nimbly in the sea. The forelimbs are mainly used to propel the turtle forward, and the hind limbs act like a rudder to control the direction when swimming.

8. Squid

Squids are mollusks in the order Cephalopoda. When a squid encounters a strong enemy, it will use “ink jet” as an escape method and wait for an opportunity to leave, so it has names such as “squid” and “cuttlefish”. Its skin has pigmented sacs that change color and size in response to “mood”. Squids can leap out of the sea and have amazing aerial flight abilities. Squid are distributed in the world’s oceans, mainly living in shallow waters along the coast of tropical and temperate zones, and often migrate to deeper waters in winter. Common squid breed in spring and summer, laying about 100 to 300 eggs.

9. Dunkleosteus

Dunkleosteus is a large paleontological creature that lived in the Paleozoic Devonian period (about 360 million to 430 million years ago), with a body length of about 11 meters, a weight of up to 6 tons, and a bite force of up to 5 tons. It is regarded as the largest (ocean) predator in the Devonian period, and it is also the largest carnivorous bony fish that appeared in the Cambrian to the Devonian period. Its main prey is fish with hard shell protection and invertebrates. Animals were the top predators at that time. Dunkleosteus looks like a ferocious beast: a powerful physique coupled with a deck-encrusting head. It was one of the most ferocious carnivores of the Devonian seas, and even 400 million years later, people will still be in awe to see its fossils. It’s very large, which means it can tear a small shark in half in one bite.

10. Walrus

The walrus has a short and wide mouth, specially developed canine teeth, like ivory, hence the name, used for digging food and attacking and defending. Has sparse hard body hair, small eyes, and poor vision. The limbs are flipper-like, and the hind limbs can be bent to the front, which can walk on ice and land. The walrus is huge, with an average male weight of 800-1700 kg and a length of 2.2-3.6 meters, and some individuals can reach 2000 kg. The world’s largest male walrus weighs 2,268 kilograms and is 4.9 meters long. Walruses have extremely thick subcutaneous fat that can withstand the cold polar environment. The skin color of walruses on land is different from that in seawater (the skin is reddish brown on land, but white in water) because in water, the blood vessels are constricted and the blood is squeezed out of the subcutaneous fat layer to reduce the thermal energy. churn. Walruses live mainly in the Arctic Ocean; they are found in the Pacific and Atlantic because they can travel for short distances. Usually live in groups near large ice floes or the coast. Walruses can dive to a depth of 90 meters and stay in the water for about 20 minutes.
