I discovered some interesting little facts about our ocean friends here.
The manatee is sometimes known as a sea cow.
Sea turtles enjoy immunity from the sting of the deadly box jelly fish, and regularly eat them, helping keep tropical beaches safe for humans.
Manta rays are very rarely kept in captivity, primarily due to their size. Only four aquariums in the world display manta rays.
The male humpback whales can produce a complex song lasting 10 to 20 minutes, which they repeat for hours at a time. The purpose may have a role in mating.
Freshwater and marine eels are commonly used in Japanese cuisine. They are also very popular in Chinese cuisine.
Are there other interesting facts that you would like to share?
