Transcript of "Nicole And Tash"

  1. 1. Animals in Antarctica By Tash and Nicole
  2. 2. Many animals live at Antarctica. Some of these animals are fish, whales, sharks, seals, polar bears, birds, penguins, krill, squids and many more. It really depends on which part of Antarctica of which animals there is. All of the animals that live there though have to be able to survive extreme temperatures ( cold ). Also be able to cope with blizzards, snow storms and avalanches. Introduction
  3. 3. Where is Antarctica? THERE
  4. 4. FISH There are many different types of fish in Antarctica which you can find very interesting. One of the types of fish that live in Antarctica are the ‘ice fish’. The ice fish is interesting because it has antifreeze which keeps it's body from freezing in the water. ICE FISH There is another fish called cod. It is very big and can grow to the average size of 18-39 inches. The cod weighs up to 25 kg’s. The cod fish also has antifreeze in it's body which keeps it from freezing during the Antarctic Winters.

  5. 5. The freezing waters off Antarctica are the Summer home for many whale species. When the whales are there, they eat krill (like small prawns). In autumn, as the temperature falls and ice starts to cover the sea, many of the large whale species begin the big migration northward to the warm waters of Australia. Blue, killer, sperm, humpback, fin, Minke, Orca, Southern Right and Sei are all types of whales. There are many types of whales in Antarctica but the blue whale is the biggest animal on the earth and could be as big as the biggest dinosaurs. The blue whales have a heart the size of a car. Whales KILLER WHALE
  6. 6. Sharks There are not a lot of sharks in Antarctica. The only shark that has really been researched a lot on is the Salmon Shark. The salmon shark has many rows of teeth and a huge jaw. The salmon shark can be brown and white or it can be a brownish gray sort of colour. The salmon shark can grow longer than eleven feet. Most of the time it stays up towards the top of the water. The Salmon Shark normally stays in the shallow parts of the water because that’s were its food is. They eat almost anything, including seals, fish, penguins, and other sharks. They even eat sting rays. SALMON SHARK
  7. 7. Seals Not every animal can stand the freezing cold water of the Antarctic, but the seals of Antarctica can because of its 2-4 inches of thick blubber. They sleep on the shore ( the ice ). The pups are even born on ice during April or May. Even though they live in water they still can't stay under water for a long time, so they will come up out of water every 2 or 3 minutes. Seals are normally a little smaller than a dolphin. Seals can be gray, brown, or black. Seals of Antarctica eat shrimps, crabs, clams, snails, cods, and baby penguins. Seals don’t have taste buds.

  8. 8. There are 17 different kinds of penguins in Antarctica. They are the Adele, Black-footed, Chinstrap, Emperor, Erectrested, Fiordland, Gentoo, Galapagos, Humboldt, King, Little blue, Magellanic, Macaroni, Rock Hopper, Royal, Snares Island, and the Yellow eyed penguin. Penguins live mostly in Antarctica, but they also live in other countries such as Australia and New Zealand. The most common penguin in Antarctica is the king penguin. It is also the second largest penguin in Antarctica. Unlike most animals, when a penguin lays an egg the male penguin puts the egg on its feet to keep it off the ice. The female hunts for food, while the male is taking care of the egg. They have to survive the rough winters by huddling in their rookeries, ( a very tight big group ). Penguins A PENGUIN
  9. 9. Krill Antarctic krill or scientific name, (Euphausia superba), is one of the most important animals in the Antarctica food chain, because lots of animals such as penguins, birds and baleen whales feed on them. Krill are small normally 4 inches or less. They eat phytoplankton. Phytoplankton are microscopic plants that live in the ocean. Massive groups of krill are called swarms.
  10. 10. The black browed Albatross has a wing span of up to 240cm. The head of an adult bird is white and has grey sort of eyes. It eats fish, squid and krill. The bird breed every year. The current population is the biggest of all the albatross with more than 2,000,000 birds. The nest they make are keg-shaped and is made out of mud and grass and is about 60cm high. The Albatross can fly without flapping for ages by receiving ocean winds in their glider-like wings. Black-Browed Albatross
  11. 11. Hundreds of new species of deep-sea animals, such as the baby Ceratoserolis , have been discovered in the waters of Antarctica. Scientists think that it is related to the wood lice. It is a crustacean. Also creatures like the heart-shaped sea urchins, carnivorous sponges, and giant sea spiders the size of dinner plates. This shrimp like creature, called Cylindrarcturus, was caught floating through the deep waters near Antarctica. More Ceratoserolis Cylindrarcturus
