The Kerfees Vis By Tyshari Thomas

My organisms is named Kerfees Vis its named dirived from the language spoken in South Africa Known as Afrikaans it means Christmas fish in english. The genus name for my creature is Nitidus Marinus meaning that it has shinning reflection and it lives in marine areas. The creature is uniquly structue and gets its name because of the christmas pattern of its skin hints the name. They live in wide schools together and are usually captured by fisherman during the holiday season for children as pets then realese ba ck into the wild.

The inside of the Kersfees Vis uses its big gold ball in the back of its mouth to shine its predators fromwith help of the sun.

Keesfees Vis are located in the bethic zone pand also the oceanic zone, and the euphotic zone it uses the sunlight from the sun to shine and blind its predators. They can be found during the day looking for food, during this time they can use the sun to its advantage. At night they usually will alll gather together and stack theirselves on top of each other so they look bigger at night to scare off any predator who wants to attack them in their sleeps.

The physical traits of the Kersfees Vis is very unique and not one is the same, their skin pattern is like a birthmark for humans. they all have different patterns, and they use their antennas on the top of their head to communicate in a way where otheres can not here them. this is good during feeding time and they decide they want to feed on fish larve, they have great hutiong skills when they work as a team. over thousands of years the Kersfees vis have came to adapt to the climate of South Africa. because climates are getting hotter around South Africa the fish have made their gills thicker to proctect them from to much sun. also when they are not sleeping at night and not hunting during the day, you can find the Kersfees Vis buried under the sand to protect its very unique skin.

The locomotive of a Kersfees Vis is very unique it can either slide across the substrate of the ocean or because its a zooplankton you can find them just wandering with the current, they have a slug like bottom where they can glide and stick to the bottom, this is also how they attach theirselves on top of each other at night while there sleeping, in a day a Kersfees Vis can wander between a mile a day always finding its way back home.

Kersfees Vis breath through the gills like most fish but also when they hide in beteen roots during bad weather they can breath air, when oxygen in the water is low.The reproductive system of this fish is a little diffrent because the lady lays the eggs inside of the male because their stomach are bigger and he fertilizes it and carries them for 4 months until the babies are ready to hatch.

This is fish gills they look similar to the gills of a Kersfees Vis
