Bop Fish!! By: Joey Mondelli
"Bopolious" comes from the latin word "Olious" which means "beast". The word "insanico" means insane.
The Bop Fish lives in the Benthic Zone of the Atlantic Ocean. This is the Aphotic Midnight Zone. Some of the abiotic factors in this zone are the sand, many rocks, and even some sunken ships that have reached the bottom of the ocean. The sunken ships could provide a good shelter or sleeping place for the Bop Fish.
Bop Fish has a special non-bioluminescent skin, that is black to blend in with the extremely dark water of its habitat. The Bop Fish also lacks eyes, due to the lack of necessity for eyes in these dark waters. Their antennae-like structures allow it to send out sonar waves for echolocation.
Bop Fish is a Nekton - it swims by whirling its tail fin back and forth. It can also catch onto currents as another form of movement, to preserve its energy if tired.
