The Nation’s Coolest Creatures



MSN.com posted the nation's coolest creatures. it's an interesting list to check out. But here are the aquatic creatures that made it on the list.

Bull Shark

These sharks are considered by many to be more dangerous than the great white because of their preferred habitat—shallow shoreline areas and river mouths. In general, however, shark attacks on humans are rare.

Ocean Sunfish
A sunfish doesn't need to be fast to catch its meals—it eats jellies and other slow-drifting prey including mollusks, crustaceans, fish, squid, algae and eelgrass.



Shark Ray

These animals are listed in the International Red List Book of IUCN (International Union of Conservation of Nature) as a vulnerable species. Not only are they rare, but their large fins are highly desired in Asian markets for human consumption.

The sunfish is pretty dirty, according to … OK, I forgot. It was either Blue Planet or Planet Earth on discovery. They were saying how it’ll turn on its side at the surface and let seagulls eat the gunk off of it. Eww! Now that Shark Ray, on the other hand, looks pretty bad ass. Time to Google and learn more about it…
