Do you not feel comfortable about  being aroundspiders,sharks,grizzly bears,skunks,moon jelly fish,the gavialis gangeticus,sea pigs,orcas,tiger quoll,or wasps  well  people tend to look  at these  animal  and  then we take off  running in fear.but  the  spider as  you  may  call  critters help  us.  The  grizzly bears  can  rip  oped  a  skull,and skunks stink but they  help  us.moon jelly fish,the gavialis gangeticus,sea pigs,orcas,tiger quoll,or wasps  are weird but unique animals continue to  find out why...

 introduction 

Many people think spider  are horribl  creatures and  they will  bite you and

some people run

away  when  they see a spider others try to kill any bug or spider they see in their sight. Furthermore  spiders  dont  always  bite  people. Spiders usually  stic  to  making webs  and eating insect.In addition spiders like to eat  mosquitoes,flies,grasshoppers,and crickets in  their   webs.Spiders  actually  help  us  by  killing  insects(pests). Yet if you  grab a spider or yet try to  kill or  even  trap them you may get bitten but if you  do get  bitten the bite is  harmless. For instance  if  you  do  get  bit  by  a  black  widow  spider  they  are  highly  dangerous  because  they  are  poisonous.In addition a  black  widow spider can  make  you  very  sick  or  it  could  even  kill  you.So  the  lesson  is  if  you  see  a  spider  they  mean  good  they  are  just  killing  the  other  pests  and  critters  in  you  house  that  you  dont  like.                                 

spiders

Sharp  razor  teeth,drilling  into  a  fish  so  pointy  one  touch  can  tear  your  bones.

But  aside  from this  is  what    people  think of   sharks,  VISUS.Some  sharks  are  different

some  are  different  colors  and  different  sizes. Hear are some examples,hammer  heads,tiger sharks,and mako sharks have powerful razor sharp teeth but other sharks can bite three hundred times harder than a human.If you are wondering what the most dangerous shark is that would be the great white shark,a great white shark usually states in the opened sea but then other times a great white shark will go and kill a swimmer swimming in the ocean with no warning.Lastly great white sharks will eat any animal or person it finds in its path.the great white shark may even attack small boats.its large saw edge teeth can even saw through wood and metal.This is why if a shark comes near you or comes in your way stay calm and dont be frightened.

The grizzly bears have been hated from the ferry begining.A large grizzly bear is the most strongest animals in the world,a full grown male grizzly bear is eight feet long from nose to tail and can weigh more then seven hundred poundes and 102cm on average.A grizzly bear can live up to 20-25years in the wild,mass 240kg-adult,Alaska population.Grizzlys eat everything from small rodents,fish,carrion,to garbage and human food if easy accessible,squirrels,deer,berries,and lastly birds.In addition in 1921 grizzlies were strongly dissliked and feared animals of the American northwest.There is no dought that a grizzly bear is dangerous animals that should be left alone.Any encounter with a bear can be dangerous and frightening.If you see a bear that is far away or that doesent see you,turn around and go back.If the bear is close and does see you remain calm.DO NOT RUN!!!!! the chances are that you will not get hurt and the bear will walk away and disappear.

The skunk has two white stripes on its back,the stripes tell you to watch out .If you don't bother the skunk you're safe but if you do there is danger.The skunks tail lifts when danger comes near and waits for you to leave but if you don't leave it sprays you.A spray or direct hit can cause eyes to burn,mouth,and nose to burn and your clothing will stink for weeks and weeks. A skunk sprays up to ten feet or more and one spray is all it takes to make that thing leave.

It sates insects,berries,fruits and seeds.

Aurelia aurita (also called the moon jelly, or saucer jelly) is a widely studied species of the genus Aurelia. All species in the genus are closely related, and it is difficult to identify Aurelia medusae without genetic sampling; most of what follows applies equally to all species of the genus
The jellyfish is translucent, usually about 25–40 cm (10–16 in.) In diameter, and can be recognized by its four horseshoe-shaped gonads, easily seen through the top of the bell. It feeds by collecting medusae, plankton, and mollusks with its tentacles, and bringing them into its body for digestion. It is capable of only limited motion, and drifts with the current, even when swimming.

The gharial (Gavialis gangeticus), also known as the gavial, and the fish-eating crocodile, is a crocodilian of the family Gavialidae, native to the Indian Subcontinent. The global gharial population is estimated at fewer than 235 individuals, which are threatened by loss of riverine habitat, depletion of fish resources and use of fishing nets. As the population has declined drastically in the past 70 years, the gharial is listed as Critically Endangered by the IUCN.The gharial is one of the longest of all living crocodilians, measuring up to 6.25 m (20.5 ft).With 110 sharp interdigitated teeth in its long thin snout it is well adapted to catching fish, its main diet.The male has a distinctive boss at the end of the snout, which resembles an earthenware pot known as ghara.

Scotoplanes, commonly known as the sea pig, is a genus of deep-sea holothurians echinodermata of the family Empididae, order Elasipodida.Members of the Elpidiidae have particularly enlarged tube feet that have taken on a leg-like appearance, and are the only instance of legged locomotion amongst the holothurians, using water cavities within the skin (rather than within the leg itself) to inflate and deflate the appendages. These legs, in conjunction with their large, plump appearance (about 6 inches/15 cm long) have suggested the common name "sea pig". There are other genera of Elpidiidae with a similar appearance that have also been referred to as "sea pigs".

killer whale

 

The killer whale (Orcinus orca), also referred to as the orca whale or orca, and less commonly as the blackfish or grampus, is a toothed whale belonging to the oceanic dolphin family. Killer whales are found in all oceans, from the frigid Arctic and Antarctic regions to tropical seas. Killer whales as a species have a diverse diet, although individual populations often specialize in particular types of prey. Some feed exclusively on fish, while others hunt marine mammals like pinnipeds, and even large whales.

orcas eat sharks,jellyfish,turtles,guppies,and shrimp.

 Killer whales are regarded as apex predators, lacking natural predators.
Killer whales are highly social; some populations are composed of matrilineal family groups which are the most stable of any animal species.

The tiger quoll (Dasyurus maculatus), also known as the spotted-tail quoll, the spotted quoll, the spotted-tailed dasyure or the tiger cat, is a carnivorous marsupial of the quoll genus Dasyurus native to Australia. With males and females weighing around 3.5 and 1.8 kg, respectively, it is mainland Australia's largest, and the world's longest (the biggest is the Tasmanian devil) living carnivorous marsupial, and it is considered an apex predator. Two subspecies are recognised; the nominate is found in wet forests of southeastern Australia and Tasmania, and a northern subspecies, D. m. gracilis, is found in a small area of northern Queensland and is endangered.

A wasp is any insect of the order Hymenoptera and suborder Apocrita that is neither a bee nor an ant. Almost every pest insect species has at least one wasp species that preys upon it or parasitizes it, making wasps critically important in natural control of their numbers.Parasitic wasps are increasingly used in  agricultural pest control as they prey mostly on pest insects and have little impact on crops.

This is an aardwolf! They live in eastern and southern Africa, and, they’re hyenas. (Fun fact: the internet is telling me that “aardvark” translates from Dutch/Afrikaans to “earth pig”.

There are only four living species of hyenas, the most familiar one being spotted hyenas, and aardwolves are both the smallest (slightly larger than a fox or jackal) and the only insectivore. They mostly eat termites, and as such have broad sticky tongues to lick them up with. A single aardwolf can eat up to 300 000 termites in a night.

Also, their babies are awfully cute
