UNUSUAL & Unique Marine Mammals
 
10:44
From pink dolphins in the Amazon, to albino humpback whales down under ; Here are 18 unusual and unique marine mammals Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr #5 Narwhal (nor-wall) Whales Kind of like Cuvier’s Beaked Whale, this animal was considered something of a myth … often referred to as unicorns of the sea. Which is understandable, given the long horn that seems to grow from its head. Except that isn’t a horn … it’s really the whale’s immense right canine tooth … more properly referred to as a tusk. The hollow tusk will grow throughout the whale’s life, reaching a length of more than 10 feet and weighing around 22 pounds. They sometimes use it to break up ice in the Arctic waters. Did you know these critters are closely related to Beluga whales? #4 Southern Elephant Seal It may not appear to be the poster critter for sea creatures, but this massive marine mammal is known to spend around 80% of its life in the water. The name is inspired by its proboscis (proh-BOSS-is), which resembles an elephant’s trunk … and for its great size. As befits the largest pinniped (or seal), adult bulls can weigh nearly 9,000 pounds and measure close to 20 feet long. Some specimens have been estimated to weigh some 11,000 pounds! You wouldn’t guess it from their bulk, but elephant seals have been recorded diving to depths of 7,000 feet to search for prey … often taking 20 minutes per dive. The largest subpopulation of elephant seals is found in the South Atlantic. #3 The 52 Hertz Whale Whales aren’t necessarily known for sulking underwater. But maybe that’s what this one was doing when it was photographed motionless just under the water’s surface. The critter was nicknamed the loneliest whale in the world, apparently sending out songs in a cry for companionship -- at a frequency of 52 Hertz. This happened in 2004, and to this day, no one knows whether the whale was male or female, or what exact species it may have been. Since then the animal has disappeared … think it ever found a mate? #2 Bottlenose Dolphins Their name is a reference to the animal’s snout, which has a bottle-like shape. There are actually three species of these oceanic dolphins, and they all tend to favor temperate waters around the world … meaning you won’t find them in the waters of the Polar regions. Males can weigh more than 1,400 pounds and measure up to 13 feet long -- those sizes vary according to the habitat. They have a reputation for being highly intelligent … and can communicate through pulsed sound, body language and whistling. Did you know that in the wild, these dolphins have been observed to fashion their own tools? They’ve also rescued injured divers, and protected humans from sharks! #1 Mr. Migaloo (White Humpback Whale) Humpback whales are pretty well known for their size (about as big as a school bus), and for their evocative songs. But the best known of this lot just might be a stark white specimen from Australia that was first spotted in 1991 off Byron Bay in Queensland. He was nicknamed ‘Migaloo’, an Aboriginal term translated as ‘White fella’. In fact, this fella is the world’s only documented albino humpback whale. (To be fair, some sources do claim he could be leucistic, or ‘hyper-pigmented’) He’s well known for his annual migrations from Antarctica to Queensland’s more temperate waters. While some other apparently albino marine mammals have popped up over the years, Migaloo has become something of a celebrity cetacean. He has attracted so much attention that the Queensland government decreed a fine of more than $16,000 for getting within a 500 meter (1600 feet) exclusion zone of the big guy.

10 MOST DANGEROUS OCEAN CREATURES IN THE WORLD
 
10:17
10 Most Dangerous Water Animals In The World ► Subscribe: https://goo.gl/vHN6qB For copyright matters please contact us at: [email protected] There are many different types of creatures that live in streams, lakes, seas and oceans. And while many of these creatures are harmless, there are many that are incredibly dangerous if you happen to have an encounter with them. These dangerous animals lurk beneath the surface of the water in a world vastly different than ours, and must be deadly to survive. Join us as we take a look at 10 of the most dangerous water creatures. 10. Australian Box Jellyfish – This creature is not one to be messed around with if you happen to swim into a swarm of them. And while they may seem harmless, the Australian box jellyfish is considered to be the most venomous marine animal in the world. They have tentacles that are covered with tiny darts called nematocysts, and they are loaded with poison. 9. Flower Urchin – Beautiful but deadly, these sea urchins are extremely venomous. They look like a bouquet of small flowers; to which they get their name from. They feed on invertebrates, sponges, and dead fish, and have well developed jaws for grinding up their prey. 8. The Saltwater Crocodile – Evolving around 200 million years in the Mesozoic epoch, crocodiles have far outlived the dinosaurs. The Salt water crocodile is the world’s largest reptile, and they have been known to grow up to 27 feet long and weigh 2,465 lbs. 7. Textile Cone Snail – Mother nature teaches us that anything in nature that is beautiful, is most likely deadly, and a warning to predators and humans to not touch or disturb them. This holds true for the Textile Cone Snail. 6. The Sea Snake – These highly venomous marine snakes are closely related and belong to the same family as the cobra. There are two independently evolved groups: the true sea snakes which are related to Australian terrestrial elapids, and the sea kraits which are related to Asian cobras. 5. The Lionfish – Lionfish are skilled hunters, using specialized bilateral swim bladder muscles to provide exquisite control of location in the water column, allowing the fish to alter its center of gravity to better attack prey. The lionfish then spreads its large pectoral fins and swallows its prey in a single motion. 4. The Stingray – Stingrays are a group of rays, which are cartilaginous fish related to sharks, and are one of the oceans deadliest creatures. Most stingrays have one or more barbed stingers on their tails, which are used exclusively for self-defense. 3. Blue-Ringed Octopus – This octopus has some of the most striking colors of any ocean creature. They get their name from the brightly blue colored rings on its body. 2. Needlefish – These strange looking creatures are very slender, and have a single dorsal fin, placed far back on the body. Needlefish are capable of making short jumps out of the water at up to 37 mph. Since Needlefish swim near the surface, they often leap over the decks of shallow boats rather than going around. 1. The Moray Eel - Most attacks stem from disruption of a moray's burrow to which they react strongly, but an increasing number of accidents also occur during hand feeding of morays by divers, an activity often used by dive companies to attract tourists.

13 Incredible Whale Photos
 
05:49
From the incredible way that whales sleep, to the most INTENSE whale watching ever, these are 13 INCREDIBLE Whale Photos ! Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr # 9 Sperm Whales Sleep Standing Up For a long time, we all used to think that whales slept in the same pattern as dolphins, with one eye open and half their brain activated, but in 2013 scientists discovered a pod of sperm whales who slept in a very bizarre way. This pod just off the coast of Chile slept with their bodies completely vertical, gently bobbing near the surface of the water. When scientists got into the middle of the ominous pod and nudged one of the whales, prompting them all to wake up and swim away. # 8 Snorkeller and Sperm Whale One brave, stupid, or whale-whispering snorkeller went head to head with this sperm whale off the coast of the Caribbean. He literally touched his head to the head of a massive, 60-foot whale. The size advantage of whales over snorkelers is obvious, but they can be friendly and sociable if caught in a good move! However, it’s likely that it wouldn’t have done anything violent even if it wasn’t in a playful mood. # 7 Rare White Humpback Whale Photographer Jenny Dean was on vacation when she happened to catch a photo of the incredibly rare white humpback whale in North Queensland. This whale might be Migaloo, the name of what many think to be the only white humpback whale in the world. This was truly a once in a lifetime event, and these photographs are really rare considering the fact that Migaloo was moving incredibly fast and so was the vessel Jenny Dean was traveling on. # 6 Beluga Whale doing Art The Beluga whales at Hakkeijima Sea Paradise aquarium in Yokohama show off their artistic talent. The belugas use specially made paintbrushes to that they can hold in their mouths. Trainers stand nearby and dip their paintbrushes into paint, then guide the whales into making art. Three belugas on a cycle every weekday and twice every day of the weekend show off their talent at the aquarium. # 5 Whales go Birding Humpback whales primarily feed on krill, which float close to the surface of the water. Pelicans dive low to feed on those same krill. So, when the humpback jumps up to catch a bite, it can sometimes end unfortunately for the pelican as it gets caught in the jaws of the whale. It is not an extremely uncommon event, but it is not usually captured so well on camera. Kate Cummings caught this moment when a pelican made the accident of mistiming a divebomb and landed right into the mouth of a whale. # 4 Giant Beached Whale This bloated, giant blue whale washed up ashore at Trout River, a small town in Newfoundland. For a while, local officials were worried that the bloated corpse would explode since it seems to be ballooning already. The incredible sight attracted locals to get up close and personal with the animal for a while, as moving giant whales off of shores is incredibly hard to do. The whale measured a whopping 81 feet in length and many towns don’t have the resources to move something so big. If left alone for too long, the gasses inside might build up and cause an explosion. # 3 Killer Whales Eating Live Sharks In extremely rare footage captured by a drone in Monterey Bay, California, we saw two adult female killer whales feeding on live baby sharks. When Slater Moore on a whale watching boat traveled near a pod of killer whales when he noticed they were eating something, so he flew his drone over to catch the scene. They were feeding on seven-gill sharks, a rare deep water shark that’s a part of the cow shark family. # 2 Whale Photobomb Adrenaline Junkie Will Rosner was two months into his sailing trip across the Pacific Ocean and French Polynesia when he caught this moment on camera while snorkeling. The 24-year-old was diving in Tonga when he accidentally encountered a pod of whales and when he went to take a selfie, one of those friendly humpback whales photobombed him. The whale burst from the water just yards behind him, creating an incredible photo. Rosner reportedly swam with the pod of six whales for more than six hours. # 1 Whale Pod Rising Whales regularly surface from underwater to take a breath of air, but it can still look pretty dramatic. Like this pod of whales that surfaced at the same time to take in a deep breath. When a bunch come up at the same time, it can look like a dramatic scene of otherworldly aliens arriving on earth.

Beluga Whales - Ocean Mammals
 
03:02
Beluga Whales , Ocean Mammals In the shallow coastal waters in the Arctic is where you will spot Beluga Whales. Beluga Whales don’t look like your typical whale though adapting to life around sea ice Belugas are all white in color. Belugas inhabit the waters off Alaska, Russia, Canada, Greenland and Norway. Belugas also have a ridge on their back instead of a dorsal fin and a thick layer of blubber about 5 inches thick. Scientists believe they evolved this way to stay warm in their icy Arctic surroundings. The bump on the Belugas head is called a melon, and it can actually change shape, scientist believe the melon is how it effects sound as sonar to help them find food and to find holes in the Arctic ice sheet. During the colder months as the Arctic water freezes over and the ice thickens Belugas will migrate south to avoid getting trapped in the ice, and also to avoid falling prey to the polar bears and killer whales. Belugas travel in groups with as little as 2 or 3 to several hundred. Belugas are mammals, and the female will usually have only 1 calf at a time and the calf will nurse for about 2 years. The males grow very large to about 18 feet long and weighing up to 3500 lbs. Don’t forget to subscribe Each Week, a new Did you Know?

How Whales Became The Largest Animals Ever
 
03:24
Whales are the largest living animals that have ever existed on this Earth. A blue whale can grow to a whopping 110 feet in length, outweighing even the dinosaurs. But curiously their story begins from rather humble beginnings. Here is the story of how whales became the giants of the sea. ----------------------------------------------------- Science Insider tells you all you need to know about science: space, medicine, biotech, physiology, and more. Subscribe to our channel and visit us at: http://www.businessinsider.com/science Science Insider on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BusinessInsiderScience/ Science Insider on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/science_insider/ Business Insider on Twitter: https://twitter.com/businessinsider Tech Insider on Twitter: https://twitter.com/techinsider ------------------------------------------------------ Following is a transcript of the video: Whales are the largest animals to ever exist on this Earth, outweighing even the dinosaurs. These titans roam the oceans in search of food, but that wasn't always the case. Millions of years ago they used to be land dwellers. Here is how whales ended up becoming the biggest of them all.  Following is a transcript of the video. Whales are the biggest animals of all time. Heavier than elephants, wooly mammoths, and even dinosaurs! But they weren’t always the titans of the sea. Let’s rewind the clock around 50 million years. No, you won’t find any whales here. You have to go ashore. Meet Pakicetus. The very first whale. Life on Earth spent millions of years clawing its way out of the oceans. But whales took all that effort and threw it out the window. From 50 to 40 million years ago they traded in their four legs for flippers. In fact, some whales today still have leftover bones of hind legs! Once submerged, their weight under gravity no longer mattered so they could theoretically grow to enormous proportions. And they did. Today, a blue whale is 10 THOUSAND times more massive than the Pakicetus was. But this transformation wasn’t as gradual as you might think. In fact, over the next 37 million years or so whales grew increasingly diverse but their size remained small. And were only 18 feet long. Making them easy prey for predators, like giant sharks. It wasn’t until around 3 million years ago that an ice age tipped the scales in the whales’ favor. Ocean temperatures and currents shifted sparking concentrated swarms of plankton and plankton-seeking krill. It was an all-you-can-eat buffet for the baleen whales, who grew larger as a result. And the larger they became, the farther they could travel in search of more food to grow even more. You can probably see where this is going. 3 million years later, humpbacks, for example, have one of the longest migrations of any mammal on Earth, traveling over 5,000 miles each year. As a result, modern whales are the largest they’ve ever been in history. Take the biggest of the bunch the blue whale. It weighs more than a Boeing 757. Has a belly button the size of a plate. And its network of blood vessels, if you laid them out in a line, could stretch from Pluto to the sun and back over two and a half times! In fact, the largest blue whales are so huge that scientists think they may have hit a physical limit. When they open their wide mouths to feed they engulf enough water to fill a large living room. So it can take as long as 10 seconds to close them again. Scientists estimate once a whale is 110 feet long it can’t close its mouth fast enough before prey escapes. So it’s possible we’re living amongst the largest animal that will ever exist. Lucky for us, they mostly just eat krill. This was made in large part thanks to Nick Pyenson and the information in his new book, “Spying on Whales.”

Killer Whale Attack ( Documentary )
 
49:00
The killer whale or orca (Orcinus orca) is a toothed whale belonging to the oceanic dolphin family, of which it is the largest member. Killer whales are found in all oceans, from Arctic and Antarctic regions to tropical seas. Killer whales have a diverse diet, although individual populations often specialize in particular types of prey. Some feed exclusively on fish, while others hunt marine mammals such as seals and dolphins. They have been known to attack baleen whale calves, and even adult whales. Killer whales are apex predators, as there is no animal which preys on them.

BIGGEST Sea Creatures Around The World!

Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "Most TERRIFYING Sea Monsters Ever!" video here: https://youtu.be/B9aPB6KB504 Watch our "CREEPY Fish From The Deep Sea!" video here: https://youtu.be/IjbRmTvO1_g Watch our "Most MYSTERIOUS Ocean Facts!" video here: https://youtu.be/BzrlpgRVPQg 10.) Fin Whale The fin whale is the second largest creature on Earth after the blue whale. It has been severely affected by commercial whaling and now it is rare to see one. If you have seen one, consider yourself lucky! They can grow as long as 89 feet (27 m) in length and can weigh between 40 to 80 tons! The maximum ever recorded weighed in at 114 tons!! They can live to be over 100 years old if left alone. The fin whale’s body is built for speed and it can even go faster than the fastest ocean steamship. It’s capable of speeds of up to 37 km/h but can go short bursts of even 47 km/h, earning it the nickname “greyhound of the sea”. Fin Whales have a very unique coloring with the right underside of their jaw, right lip, and the right side of their baleen being a yellowish-white, while the left-side is gray, making them look asymmetrical. Fun fact, fin whales and blue whales make the lowest frequency sounds of any animals. When they were first recorded by submarines, scientists thought they were tectonic plates grinding. Kind of makes you wonder about what is causing other mysterious ocean sounds! 9.) Portuguese Man of War While this is often considered a jellyfish, the Portuguese man-of-war is actually not an “it” but a “they”! It is made up of a colony of organisms called polyps that work together known as a siphonophore. While the tentacles can extend 165 feet (50 m), the average is about 30 feet (9 m) long. Still nothing to scoff at!! Also known as “the floating terror”, their body is between 5 inches to a foot wide (13 cm- 130 cm). They are usually found in groups of about a thousand or more, and have no independent means of movement. They either drift on the currents or catch the wind, so even though you should be super careful of jellyfish, they aren’t ever out to get you on purpose! The tentacles on a man-of-war are extremely venomous and very painful if you get stung but they are rarely deadly. The venom is typically used to paralyze their prey, such as small fish and other smaller creatures. Also keep in mind that a man-of-war does not need to be alive in order to give off a powerful sting, even if it has washed up on shore and looks dead, it can still sting you! The Portuguese man-of-war floats around the Atlantic Ocean, as well as the Indian and Pacific. So keep an eye out if you are swimming around these areas! 8.) Giant Clam The giant clam is the largest living bivalve mollusk on earth. (Bivalve mollusks include clams, oysters, and mussels). Native to the warm waters of Australia's Great Barrier Reef, giant clams are capable of growing an average of 4 feet (1 m) in length and weighing close to 500 pounds (250 kg)! However, some species of clams have been known to grow as long as 6 feet. The large majority of a giant clam’s mass is in its shell, with the soft parts accounting for only approximately 10% of the weight. Giant clams are now endangered because they apparently are also quite delicious and have been hunted for centuries for its healthy protein. The giant clam has one chance to find its perfect home because once it chooses its spot, it stays there for the rest of its life. They can live up to 100 years or more, as long as they are in the wild. Most of the giant clams you see today have been raised in captivity and are really popular in large aquariums. Giant clams achieve their enormous proportions by consuming the sugars and proteins produced by the billions of algae that live in their tissues. This symbiotic relationship protects the algae and they are responsible for the unique coloration. No two giant clams are alike! 7.) Great White Shark According to National Geographic, great white sharks are the largest predatory fish in the world. They grow to an average of 15 feet (4.6 m) in length. However, there have been some who have grown to 20 feet (6 m) in length! In fact, the largest Great White Shark ever recorded in the wild was estimated to be 26 feet long, which is more than half the length of a basketball court. Combine this with a bunch of teeth, and this is why people get so scared. They are known to weigh up to 5,000 pounds (2268 kg). The heaviest Great White Shark ever recorded in the wild was estimated to weigh in at a whopping 7,328 pounds. .

11 Scariest Ocean Predators
 
09:17
The ocean is full of mysteries, we have gathered a list of 11 of the scariest ocean predators.. that we know of today. Subscribe for weekly wacky videos and learn interesting facts about the world with awesome top 10 lists and other amazing videos. 5 - Leopard Seals - The Leopard Seal is a seal that can be found in the frigid waters of Antarctica. It gets its name from its black-spotted coat that resembles a leopard. Like their namesakes, Leopard seals are fierce predators. Of all the seals, they are the most formidable hunters, and the only ones that feed on warm-blooded prey. They can grow up to 12 feet long and use their powerful jaws and long teeth to prey on fish, squid, penguins, and even other seals! They will often wait underwater near an ice shelf and grab birds as they land on the water. 4 - Frilled Shark - The Frilled shark is a primitive looking shark found in the waters of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, generally over the continental shelf and slope. It has been found lurking in depths over 5,000 feet. First discovered in the late 1800’s, this “living fossil” gets its name from the frilly or fringed appearance of its 6 gills and its resemblance to ancestors who swam with the dinosaurs. It has an eel like body which it uses to bend and lunge at prey like a snake. It swallows its prey whole and its many rows of teeth make it nearly impossible for anything to escape. It can grow over 6’ long. 3 - Lionfish - The Lionfish is a venomous fish which can be found in the Indian and Pacific Oceans. Its body consists of red, white, and black bands, and it is covered in long brightly colored venomous spines that make it appear like a pin cushion. The Lionfish can grow up to 17 inches long and weigh up to 3 pounds. They mostly prey on small fish, invertebrates, and mollusks, which they eat in one bite. Humans who have been pierced by one of its spines experience extreme pain, vomiting, fever, convulsions, dizziness, and breathing difficulties, sometimes resulting in temporary paralysis, heart failure, and even death in the very young and old. Despite the dangers, Lionfish are one of the most popular fish for home aquariums. 2 - Great White shark – Also known as the white pointer and the white death, the great white shark can be found near the coastal waters of all the oceans. What makes the great white shark so terrifying is its size. The largest of these sharks grow up to 20 feet and 4300 pounds. Typically the females grow up to 16 feet and the males up to 13 feet. The great white can live up to 70 years and is one of the longest living cartilaginous fish known today. The killer whale is its only known threat and can usually hold its own against that predator. The great white feeds on almost all other marine animals and, although humans aren’t their preferred meal, they will happily feed on humans if given the chance. The most reported unprovoked shark attacks on humans has been attributed to the great white shark. It’s this piece of information that the movie Jaws was based on a “ferocious man eating” great white shark. 1 - Killer Whales - Killer Whales, also known as Orcas, are a bit of a misnomer as they actually belong to the dolphin family, of which they are the largest members. Scientists believe their name came from a mistranslation of a Spanish name, for whale killer. They are found all over the world in oceans from the Arctic to the Antarctic. Killer Whales can grow over 30 feet long and weigh over 9 tons. Despite its size, the Killer Whales are very agile and its large size and strength make it one of the fastest marine animals, able to reach speeds of over 30 miles per hour. It also has one of the most distinctive black and white color schemes, which make it stand out from any other marine mammal. They have good eyesight and excellent hearing and can detect prey using their very sophisticated echolocation ability. Killer Whales prey on fish and other marine animals, including seals and even other dolphins. They have even been known to hunt together in pods to kill full grown whales. They sit on top of their food chain and have no known predators.

Why Killer Whales Are APEX Predators!
 
13:57
Check out Why Killer Whales Are APEX Predators! This top 10 list of amazing animals that live in the oceans has some of the coolest facts you didn't know about orcas! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "REAL Mermaid Sightings Around The World!" video here: https://youtu.be/ChM0CBRmVsM Watch our "10 Sea Monsters ATTACKING A Boat!" video here: https://youtu.be/0XROvoPCDNc Watch our "STRANGEST Animals People Keep As Pets!" video here: https://youtu.be/OMa96nPqz-Y 7. Why is the Killer Whale called an Orca? Both of the names come from the fear that this animal has instilled into our human hearts over the centuries. Their scientific name, Orcinus Orca, comes from the mythical Orcus. You may not have heard much about him but he was the Roman and the underworld, AND the punisher of broken promises. The genus Orcinus means “belonging to Orcus”. 6. Killer Whales Can’t Smell The killer whale has very well-developed eyesight. The convex or spherical lens of marine mammals differs vastly from those of land mammals. A marine mammal's eyes compensate for the lack of refraction at the cornea interface by having a more powerful spherical lens. Killer whales also have a well-developed acute sense for hearing underwater, and they process sounds at a much higher speed than humans. They can hear each other from more than 10 miles away. 5. Hunting Strategies Like I’ve said before Orcas are smart! They are highly social and hunt in coordinated packs. Their ingenuity and predatory intelligence is passed down from one generation to the next. Orcas will adapt their strategies according to their prey. They use echolocation to find their prey, sending out sonar clicks that bounce back to them and once they locate the target, it is ON! 4. Do they live up to their name? Orcas aren’t whales themselves. They belong to the dolphin family (Delphinidae) and it is the largest of all dolphins. Whalers working off the coast of Australia claimed that Killer Whales would help them hunt other whales. 3. Killer whales have a unique dialect Killer whales, just like all aquatic mammals, depend heavily on underwater sound for orientation, feeding, and communication. There are three different categories of music that killer whales produce: clicks, whistles, and pulsed calls. Clicks are commonly heard during social interactions but are also mainly used for navigating and locating prey and other possible obstacles in the surrounding environment. 2. Great White Shark vs Killer Whale It’s very hard to imagine the terrifying great white shark as prey. In 2017, beachgoers were horrified to stumble across the carcasses of Great White sharks washed up on the beaches in South Africa. These bodies ranged in size, from as small as nine feet to as big as sixteen feet, but they all had large sets of puncture marks behind their pectoral fins. What was eating the apex predator of the sea?? 1. Orcas and Humans While so far their behavior may seem intimidating and violent, it is important to note that many Native American tribes respected the killer whale and believed they were a special protector of humankind. Killer whales were symbolic animals representative of mightiness and vigor, qualities aspired to by warriors. They were referred to as the “lords of the ocean” and would protect the waters with the help of dolphins.

Dolphin Give Birth on Camera.Beautiful Record.
 
03:17
http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOqnITZgb53UdYDNbVz6RHQ?feature=mhee Dolphins are marine mammals closely related to whales and porpoises. There are almost forty species of dolphin in 17 genera. They vary in size from 1.2 m (4 ft) and 40 kg (90 lb) (Maui's dolphin), up to 9.5 m (30 ft) and 10 tonnes (9.8 long tons; 11 short tons) (the orca or killer whale). They are found worldwide, mostly in the shallower seas of the continental shelves, and are carnivores, eating mostly fish and squid. The family Delphinidae is the largest in the Cetacean order, and evolved relatively recently, about ten million years ago, during the Miocene. Dolphins are among the most intelligent animals, and their often friendly appearance, an artifact of the "smile" of their mouthline, and seemingly playful attitude have made them very popular in human culture.The name is originally from Greek δελφίς (delphís), "dolphin",[1] which was related to the Greek δελφύς (delphus), "womb".[2] The animal's name can therefore be interpreted as meaning "a 'fish' with a womb".[3] The name was transmitted via the Latin delphinus[4] (the romanization of the later Greek δελφῖνος -- delphinos[5]), which in Medieval Latin became dolfinus and in Old French daulphin, which reintroduced the ph into the word. The term mereswine (that is, "sea pig") has also historically been used.[6] The word is used in a few different ways. It can mean: any member of the family Delphinidae (oceanic dolphins), any member of the family Delphinidae or the superfamily Platanistoidea (oceanic and river dolphins), any member of the suborder Odontoceti (toothed whales; these include the above families and some others), and is used casually as a synonym for bottlenose dolphin, the most common and familiar species of dolphin. This article uses the second definition and does not describe porpoises (suborder Odontoceti, family Phocoenidae). Orcas and some closely related species belong to the Delphinidae family and therefore qualify as dolphins, even though they are called whales in common language. A group of dolphins is called a "school" or a "pod". Male dolphins are called "bulls", females "cows" and young dolphins are called "calves".[7]

The Complete "One Ocean" Shamu Show at SeaWorld (voted best on YouTube)
 
20:48
The complete "One Ocean" Shamu killer whale show One Ocean at SeaWorld San Diego. June 2017 SeaWorld San Diego has now replaced "One Ocean" with a new Orca show, Orca Encounter. Park officials said it’s more educational than theatrical when compared to the previous orca show, One Ocean. “The way they've trained them was very interesting,” said Linda Beckwith, who watched the show. One Ocean was discontinued earlier this year after a documentary film criticized the park’s treatment of captive orcas.

10 Sea Monsters ATTACKING A Boat!
 
12:03
Check out these 10 sea monsters attacking a boat! This top 10 list of ocean creatures like whales and great white sharks attacking a ship shows some bizarre stories caught on camera! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "MYSTERIOUS Creatures Living At The BOTTOM Of The World!" video here: https://youtu.be/Efhjc-Gu508 Watch our "SECRETS Casinos DON'T Want You To Find Out!" video here: https://youtu.be/hAoABuvzOZM Watch our "RAREST And Most EXPENSIVE Cars In The World!" video here: https://youtu.be/MtCnWSqqilg 10. Great White Shark If you’ve been on a boat out on the ocean, a Jaws attack has probably crossed your mind. Even if it’s just barely!! Then of course you rationalize that the chances of that happening are practically 0. Practically. That’s what Terry Selwood, a 73-year-old Australian fisherman learned in 2017, when a great white shark leapt out of the water, into his boat!! 9. An Eagle Ray Rays seem like beautiful, serene creatures - but they can be extremely dangerous, even if you’re on the relative safety of a large tourist boat. In 2011, Jenny Hausch had rented a 26-foot catamaran for her family to take a trip in Florida. Sounds really nice right? 8. Swordfish In 2017, Alan Pope, a British tourist, was on a boat trip getting ready to go snorkeling in Indonesia when everything went horribly wrong. Without any warning, a swordfish jumped out of the water and into the boat, and impaled his neck with its bill. The end snapped off, and left six inches of the sword still jabbed inside his neck, just millimeters from instantly killing him. 7. Sperm Whales The Gulf of Alaska is a prime fishing location, especially for those trying to catch black cod. In these waters, though, there is a much larger creature that also likes eating the fish- sperm whales. They are the ocean’s largest toothed predators, and while they are quite capable of catching food for themselves, they much prefer taking the easy route. 6. Giant Squid Mostly creatures of legend, giant squids are mentioned in many old mariners tales of dangers at sea. But they are rarely seen, let alone involved in attacking boats. So when a team of French sailors came face to face with one in 2003, they almost didn’t believe it!! 5. Bull Shark You might think that a great white shark would be the most problematic shark species to boats, but there’s another type that can be more aggressive, and more likely to risk an encounter. 4. Jellyfish Sometimes it’s the smallest things that can have the biggest effect, something that became ever so apparent in 2017 when Chinese scientists were investigating why their aircraft carriers were experiencing difficulties. They found that large swarms of Jellyfish were getting caught up in the propulsion systems! This would stop the ships dead in their tracks, or cause the engines to overheat and cause extreme damage. 3. Mako Shark This next story took place just last year, 2017 in Long Island, New York. A fishing charter boat was taking guests to the location where they find the widest variety of fish, when suddenly a Mako shark jumped onto the side of the boat. Unfortunately for the fish, it managed to get itself stuck in the handrail of the boat and, despite thrashing about, it couldn’t free itself. 2. Black Marlin Game fishing is a popular pastime for many enthusiasts, but when you’re chasing after some of the largest and most powerful marine creatures on earth, you have to be ready for the unpredictable. Again last year, things went very wrong indeed for a fishing boat off the coast of Panama. They had caught a black marlin, a species that can weight up to 1500 pounds and reach speeds of up to 50 miles per hour. 1. Killer Whale If you’ve ever watched a nature documentary that’s featured Killer Whales, you’ll be all too familiar how organised and clever they can be. Pods work together to catch prey, and even tilt ice flows to trap seals. When they turn these skills towards human activity, the results can be frightening.

13 Things Aquariums Are Hiding From You
 
08:34
Do you like visiting aquariums? They are loved by many. They make it possible for people to get acquainted with marine creatures they would otherwise never see. Unfortunately, not everything is so bright about the very concept of aquariums and marine parks. When the documentary "Blackfish" came out, the image of such entertainment establishments underwent a serious damage. Visitors often have a misconception that trainers in aquariums are specialists in marine biology. After all, they have such extensive knowledge about these creatures! Totally wrong. People who interact with animals and participate in shows are only performers. They have no professional credentials about orcas or other marine animals. They’re simply hired to entertain the crowd. TIMESTAMPS: Orcas are starved 0:45 People who work with orcas get killed 1:07 Orcas live shorter lives in captivity 1:51 Orcas have to live in tiny tanks 2:27 A collapsed dorsal fin isn't normal 3:17 Drugs are used on killer whales 3:52 Killer whales have problems with their teeth 4:25 Employees paint over the whales' sunburns 4:46 The trainers are not marine biologists 5:23 Captive orcas injure other animals 5:51 They artificially breed killer whales 6:20 Orcas are hurt by chlorine 7:08 Gelatin is used to keep orcas hydrated 7:37 Preview photo credit: Killer whale and trainer during a Shamu performance at Seaworld in Orlando, Florida: By Loadmaster (David R. Tribble), CC BY-SA 3.0 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=9576553 Animation is created by Bright Side. Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - Giving a treat is a typical approach while training an animal. But unfortunately, these treats seem to serve as usual food. Employees are instructed to keep the orcas hungry. - In the wild, male orcas live for 70 years, while the females’ lifespan is even longer: 100 years. But in captivity, orcas don't have a chance to enjoy a long happy life. In most cases, they die as teenagers, usually after they turn just 13 years old. - The tanks these animals live in are immensely small for them. In fact, the length of one tank is one-millionth of the distance an adult orca can cross a day in the ocean. - In the wild, only 1% of all orcas suffer from problems with their fins. And if they do, it means they're sick or injured. - If orca misbehaves or gets too excited, trainers force-feed it sedative drugs. - To prevent the public from asking questions about the change of color on the whales’ skin, trainers cover their sunburns with zinc oxide. This substance is black and does a good job at masking the horror. - People who interact with animals and participate in shows are only performers. They have no professional credentials about orcas or other marine animals. - When orcas live in captivity for prolonged periods of time, they become extremely aggressive. But they don’t just hurt the trainers; they fight each other and other animals as well. - Chlorine levels in tanks are way too high and damage the health of the animals kept in them. As a result of all the chlorine, killer whales have mucus running from their eyes and problems with their vision.

SUBSCRIBE to Barcroft Animals: http://bit.ly/2ceCJY0 A DRAMATIC set of pictures show a man nearly being swallowed by a Bryde’s Whale off Port Elizabeth Harbour. Rainer Schimpf, 51, has worked as a dive tour operator in South Africa for over 15 years. But in February, he experienced something very rare – the inside of a whale’s mouth. In perfect sea conditions, Rainer and his team set off to document a sardine run – a natural event where gannets, penguins, seals, dolphins, whales and sharks work together to gather the fish into bait balls. Rainer and his colleagues film the expedition for educational and environmental purposes.Split into two groups, Rainer led his team into the ocean, about 25 nautical miles from shore.But it was when the sea suddenly churned up that the team knew something strange was happening.

FRIENDLIEST Sea Creatures Around The World!

Check out the friendliest sea creatures around the world! From incredible animals that saved peoples lives to the strangest ocean wildlife, this top 10 list of friendly creatures swimming around in the vast ocean is amazing! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "Most MYSTERIOUS Ocean Facts!" video here: https://youtu.be/BzrlpgRVPQg Watch our "Most TERRIFYING Sea Monsters Ever!" video here: https://youtu.be/B9aPB6KB504 Watch our "STRANGEST Things Found In The Ocean!" video here: https://youtu.be/XYfqi5VNgac 10. Sea Lions Sea Lions have long been associated with friendly interactions with humans, so much so that they form a large part of Peruvian culture- having been worshipped by the people there and depicted in numerous artworks. They are highly intelligent animals, which means they can learn tricks to entertain crowds, and are quite curious so they will often swim up alongside humans and play with them in the water. They are also used by the US military to assist SCUBA diving teams look for underwater mines and, in some instances, detain divers who have accessed restricted areas until authorities can arrive. Sea lions and dolphins are used as combat marine units and sea lions especially, have excellent eyesight. Sea lions are hardy, smart, and trainable and they have the added advantage that they are amphibious and can easily hand things to their handlers. This all makes Sea Lions sound like gentle creatures, but it’s important to know that sea lions have another side to them. If they aren’t treated well or respectfully, they can become quite aggressive. This can also happen with male Sea Lions because they are very territorial during mating season. If it looks like you’re bothering one then stay away but, if not, they are one of the friendliest sea creatures you’ll ever meet. 9. Beluga Whale Beluga Whales are native to the Arctic and sub-arctic, and are uniquely adapted to the cold waters. They are white in color, don’t have a dorsal fin, and have an enlarged head, which contains an organ called a melon that is used for echolocation. Beluga’s were actually the first type of whale to be kept in captivity, with the first being shown at Barnum’s museum in New York in 1861. To this day they are still the most commonly seen animal in marine parks across North America, Europe and Asia- mainly because they are much smaller than other species of whale and easier to contain. They are also a hit with visitors because of their unusual colour and wide range of facial expressions. They are really curious about the people who visit them, and often perform in shows with trainers who they develop deep bonds with. Since 1992 it has been forbidden to capture Belugas in Canada because of concerns for the population numbers in the wild, so now most of them come from Russia. They are so popular that each one can cost as much as 100,000 dollars. Whale watching tours are a great way to see them in their natural habitat, but it’s important for the boat not to get too close to them because of the way it can interrupt their daily activities. Quite often they enjoy interacting with the boats so much that they get distracted from things like feeding, social interaction with their own species, and breeding. They get so caught up in the moment, they forget what they’re supposed to be doing!! 8. Whale Shark You might not think a shark with a five-foot-wide mouth and more than 3,000 teeth would be the friendliest of creatures, but whale sharks are the most gentle of all shark species. They pose no threat to humans at all, and are usually pretty welcoming to those who want to swim alongside them. Despite their huge mouth, their throats are only the width of a US quarter, and they only eat tiny micro-organisms. Their average speed through the water is about 3 miles per hour, so they are easy to keep up with, and in a lot of tourist areas they are used to the presence of humans in the water, and don’t really seem to be bothered. Cancun is one of the best places to swim with these giants of the ocean, where you’ll really feel small next to a 65-foot-long and 12 ton fish. There really is nothing quite like being surrounded by a few of them, and the experience draws tourists from all over the world. If you visit “Las Afueras” you’ll even have a chance to be amongst a feeding frenzy of hundreds of them, which is a spectacular feat of nature. 7. Manatees Manatees, or sea cows, are also known as gentle giants, and it’s clear to see why. They are fully aquatic and feed mainly on plant life that they sift from the water. They can grow to up to 13-feet-long, weigh about 1,300 pounds, and push their way through the water with their paddle like limbs.
