deep ocean

Welcome to the eeriest zone of the ocean. Thanks to the depth (1000 m or more), there is little or no light in this part of the ocean. Spooky, right? But what’s surprising is, this is a thriving ecosystem in spite of the extreme pressure and cold.

The deep ocean habitat at VGP Marine Kingdom echoes this mysterious part of the ocean. Where you can experience the wonders of the deep ocean without the diving suit and the oxygen. And while you are here, don’t miss to meet the Lemon and Blacktip Reef Shark. Heebie-jeebies.

 

 

I’m  a species of shark from the family Carcharhinidae. We can grow to 3.4 metres (11 ft) in length and often are found in shallow subtropical waters and are known to inhabit and return to specific nursery sites for breeding. Often feeding at night, we use electroreceptors to find their main source of prey: fish. We enjoy the many benefits of group living, such as enhanced communication, courtship, predatory behaviour, and protection. 

my diet

I am a carnivore. I feed on plankton, larger fish, marine mammals, crustaceans, squid and some more fish. Inside the water, I am the apex predator. But don’t worry, I will not harm you.

where I'm from

Our clan are present across the world in all seas. We live in depths of 2,000 metres but absent below 3,000 metres. However, the bull shark and the river shark can be found in both seawater and freshwater.

We are a species of requiem shark, and part of the family Carcharhinidae. We are common to coastal tropical and subtropical waters around the world, including brackish habitats. Genetic analyses have revealed substantial variation within this species, with populations from the western Atlantic Ocean isolated and distinct from those in the rest of its range.

You’ve heard of birds preying on fish, but have you heard of fish preying on birds? That’s me. I am the Giant Trevally and I am on top of the food chain. My specialised vision gives me a panoramic view of my surroundings, allowing me to easily detect my prey. And that’s how I feasts on birds that float on top of the water.

my diet

I hunt both individually and in schools. Fish is my staple diet, but crunchy snacks like crustaceans also make up a considerable part of my diet.

where I'm from

The Giant Trevally is present throughout the tropical waters of the Indo-Pacific region. From South Africa to Hawaii, including Japan in the north and Australia in the south. They can be found in estuaries, shallow bays and lagoons as a juvenile to deeper reefs, offshore atolls and large embayments as an adult.

 

 

 I have a very large family with over 500 different members(species). I am a close relative of sharks. I have a boneless skeleton made up of tough and elastic cartilage I have 5 slot-like openings called Gill Slots. When I swim, my side fins look like wings.

my diet

I mostly eat bottom-dwelling animals like snails, oysters, crabs, lobsters, and some fish. I have heavy rounded teeth by which I can crush the shells of these animals.

where I'm from

 I can be found in a number of places all over the world, especially near the seafloor in coastal waters though sometimes I can also be found in deep water.

I am from the same family as that of the Sea Basses and I have over 100 different types. I can grow incredibly big. In fact, I can grow upto 3m(10 ft) and weigh over 450 kilos. A cool thing I can do is change my color to mix in the background.

my diet

 I eat other fishes and animals but I don’t eat plants. So, I am, unlike you, a Carnivore. I commonly eat crabs, shrimps, burrfish, catfish, toadfish and sometimes I even eat octopuses.

where I'm from

I can be found in many places in the deep ocean all over the world from southern India, Indo-Pacific, Atlantic ocean and many other places.
