Stimoth Lybrithus

"Stephasouras"

The "Stephasouras" lives in the photic zone (upper part of the ocean) where it's typically 24 to 104 degrees Farenheit. This area receives sunlight and the depth is a causation of how transparent the water is.

"Stephasouras" also lives in the neritic zone (seaward from low tide line, continental shelf out to the shelf break). Nertic zone receives a lot of sunlight which reaches about 50 meters down into the water.

Who could forget about the pelagic zone (beyond continental shift)?? "Stephasouras" can also be found there! A few abiotic factors of the pelagic zone include water, light, salinity, pressure, tides, waves , and exposure to air.

My organism is a blue-ish green color in order to camouflage into the water to hide from its prey which are phytoplankton, algae, and seagrass, and predators which are jellyfish and sea turtles.

Algae-Prey Jellyfish- Predator Phytoplankton-Prey

"Stephasouras" is planktonic because it floats on top of the water and uses it's gills to breathe. "Stephasouras" is about six inches tall so it's very easy for it float.

The "Stephasouras" protects itself through its stingers to protect itself from jellyfish and sea turtles. Since jellyfish also have stingers, the "Stephasouras" tries to avoid jellyfish at all costs.

My organism reproduces when the male "Stephasouras" releases his sperm on the top of the water, and when the women "Stephasouras" swims by, the sperm absorbs into her stingers.

WATCH OUT "STEPHASOURAS'S" WILL STING IF PEOPLE GET IN THERE WAY!!!!
