Marine biology BY: kyle baumgartner

What is marine biology?

Marine biology is the scientific study of organisms that live in salt water. So, a marine biologist is a person that studies, and or works with a salt water organism

What are we focusing on?

What we are focusing on is the biology and anatomy of turtles and sharks, as well as the food chain in the sea.

The biology of the turtle:

Turtles biology is not that different that our own biology, the only difference is were everything is, for example, the turtles kidney is close to its back leg, ours is not, its just stuff like that, one more difference is the turtle has a tail, beak, etc. It uses this beak to tear the flesh of jelly fish, other fish and many other things. So really the turtles biology is not to different from our very own.

The biology of the shark:

The shark is a little different, it has gills instead of lungs, gills pull oxygen from water rather than air, also it has fins instead of limbs, this helps it move through the water quicker. Most sharks have a total of 8 fins, the pectoral fins, the pelvic fin, claspers, the anal fin, and the caudal fins. They also have many rows of teeth rather than a beak or just one row of teeth so it is easier for them to rip though the flesh of other mammals and fish and sometimes even humans. So unlike the turtle the sharks biology is much different than ours.
