I have created a New Zealand marine habitat and included 3 creatures that live there,one endemic,one native and one introduced
The marine habitat is a famous sight of Coral. It also has ideal hiding spots for the animals to hide from predators. Some good hiding spots are,underwater caves,deep caverns, ravines and you might spot the occasional anemone or two.
The native animal I have chosen is the Hector's Dolphin.
Dolphins sleep with only half of their brain and with one eye open so they can watch for predators and other treats . Dolphins travel in a group of Dolphins which is called a pod
and it takes around 1,000 Dolphins to make a full pod.
Dolphins are very good divers but the Hector's Dolphin is endangered.
That means that they are becoming extinct that means that there are now very a very little number of them
The introduced animal I have chosen is the Seahorse.
Seahorses are the only animals in which the male (not the female) is to give birth and care for their young. Seahorses propel themselves by using a small rudder on their back that flutters up to 35 times per second.
The endemic animal I have chosen is the Jellyfish.
The Jellyfish has been around more than 650 million years which means they out date both dinosaurs and sharks.
If you touch the tentacles of a jellyfish it will electrocute\sting you.
That was me explaining my species and habitats.
