Have you ever thought about how old a shark can live to be? so have we... the truth is, there is so much we don’t know about sharks, and “age” is one of those grey areas. scientists have been trying to come up with a concrete methodology to determining a shark’s age for decades, but unfortunately, there has been no accurate solution to this. the problem lies in a shark’s anatomy. researchers have tried tagging, but tags have a bad habit of breaking or being shaken off. they’ve even tried taking a closer look at the calcifications in sharks’ cartilage skeletons, in hopes that “vertebral rings” could be used as age markers (stevens, 2009). these rings or “grown bands” have been used to estimate the age of younger sharks, but once a shark hits s****l maturity, the bands don’t hold as much validity due to the lack of definition in the bands, the consistency at which they form, and certain ring differences between species (stevens, 2009). unfortunately, with different results coming from radiocarbon dating (accounting for the number of carbon-14 isotopes present in a sample of shark) it is clear that the methods listed above are not always accurate (campana et al. 2011). as time goes on, the hope is that we find a fool proof way of accurately determining any given shark’s age, because knowing this simple piece of information can open the door to many new scientific breakthroughs in the research and conservation of these creatures.

Cant get enough of these beautiful creatures thanks to our friends at #repost @matt_testoni_photography
・・・
a weedy seadragon swims through the waters of flinders beach with it's vibrant colours veritably pulsating out into the surrounding ocean.
victoria, australia.
animals in the world beneath the waves can have some of the planets most amazing and mind capturing patterns and displays. whilst this seahorse relative may appear to be glowing with vibrancy once submerged beneath the layers of seagrass they call home it takes an extremely keen and trained eye to spot. their appearance most likely also assists in mating and identifying a partner, the courtship involves multiple dances and thus knowing you have the same individual as yesterday is pretty important. -

Well i believe this is all in the bible . the fish and all living things in it will die and wash up on to the shore . the water and air will be poisoned .
but honestly besides that i feel like we need to do better as americans and be good to our oceans and our wildlife . this is why i have a career as a zoologist and a wild life preserver because all of this breaks my heart . if we could just change our ways for the better that would be great.
seeing my favorite animal which is the manatee dying and floating is just so sad .
there was a time when one of my tribes only lived off eating things out of the ocean . we are lucky that we as americans have other food sources .

The fried egg jellyfish has a mild sting both for humans and several species of fish. most often juvenile fish and crustaceans are seen riding on its bell and can also steal food from in between its tentacles as the jellyfish drifts away with the currents. fried egg jellyfish blooms occur in september in the mediterranean. there is no ecological explanation to why they occur but are an important food source for the #loggerheadturtle .

Epic photo by talented underwater photographer of a curious sandbar shark! with the summer season in full swing we are missing these guys as our dives become increasingly dominated by galapagos sharks, although we have still been seeing some sandbars on our dives. we are lucky to have a stable population of this species here in hawaii, whereas their populations have declined between 84% and 97% over time periods of 13-41 years in the northwest atlantic as a result of rapid expansion of recreational and commercial fisheries in the last 20 years (iucn 2009). come out with our professionally trained team of marine biologists to learn more and meet these guys for yourself!

although it’s one of the biggest coastal sharks in the world, sandbar sharks in new england are often shy and hard to approach. off the hawaiian islands of oahu, hawaii, and niihau, these sharks seem much bolder.

"the unicorn of the sea", or more commonly known as the narwhal (monodon monoceros), is a medium sized toothed whale that can be found in arctic coastal waters and rivers.  they are known for their beautiful tusks, but what purpose do these tusks serve?  the characteristic tusk is found mostly on males, and is actually a tooth!  this ivory tusk tooth grows through the narwhal's upper lip, and grows in a spiral pattern.  in rare occasions, there have been narwhals recorded that have two tusks, while others have none (drury, c., 2017). scientists are still studying the beneficial use of the narwhal's tusk(s), some believe it serves as a form of communication, while others believe that it is prominent in mating rituals.  the scientists that believe it is used for communication, support this idea due to observing males rubbing their tusks together.  previously, this behavior has been thought to be a display of aggressive male-to-male rivalry, but has been ruled out by many (national geographic, 2016). the tusk contains millions of nerve endings, which can help connect the outside environment directly to their brain.  there was recently footage captured that showed a pod of narwhals surface feeding, where they used their tusks to stun small cod, which made them easier to catch.  the tusks could serve more than one purpose, although there is not enough evidence to conclude its ultimate purpose.  narwhals are threatened by human actions, as many humans capture them for their meat, or their tusks.  although there is not enough data for a conclusion, they are considered to be near-threatened, and multiple sub-populations have evidence of decline.  the european union has established an import ban on tusks, in hopes to revive their populations. other threats narwhals face are: oil/gas development and climate change (increased exposure to open water). increased development leads to more shipping vessels, which increase the opportunity for collisions and acoustic impacts (noise pollution) (wwf, 2017). photo by @brianskerry @natgeo

#parkdayfail i came up with the great idea of taking our classroom to the park this morning without checking the weather to find out we would encounter 93 temps while learning. in spite of the heat we were able to get in the four layers of the ocean in our ocean unit study. the kids were enthusiastic about drawing their own layers diagram so that made the heat worth it...kind of...sort of 🌞πŸ”₯😩 #parkdays #schoolatthepark #parksandrecreation #summerisstillhere #homeschool #homeschooling #homeschoollife #playandlearn #chalkfun #chalkplay #outdoorlearning #outdoors #letkidsplay #oceanlife #oceanstudies #marinelife #marinebiologist #marinelife
