Dolphin Mating And Giving Birth
 
10:20
Dolphin reproduction The age of maturity for dolphins varies significantly based on many factors. The location where they live, the temperature of the water, food sources, and even the species all play a factor. For females, that age can range from 5 to 13. For males it is often much later with the range being from 9 to 14 years of age. Dolphin reproduction start with the copulation of a couple of dolphins. The copulation occurs belly to belly initiating the gestation. The gestation period is varied from species to species ranging from 11 up to 17 months in the case of the killer whale, being 12 months for the common bottlenose dolphin. Dolphin mothers usually go to shallow waters to deliver the calves, usually assisted by another dolphin which takes the role of a midwife. Usually a single calf is born, which is nursed for around 18 months with milk from the mother.

Elephant Seals Mating: Patagonia
 
07:47
A change in the weather marks the arrival of the southern Spring, and the peninsula receives one of the last rains that will fall here in the rest of the year. The sea lions have not yet moved to their breeding grounds. They are in the south of the peninsula, and also threatened by the most feared of all visitors. This time, however, their target is not the sea lions, but relatives of theirs who have already begun breeding. The female elephant seals are now in heat. The males, who had already established their territories and harems in August, must again defend them. The young are repelled with ease, but when the competitor is an adult, a terrible clash is inevitable. With their sharp teeth, the males try to wound their opponent on the neck or head. And this is the victor’s spoils: an entire harem of fourteen females that the defending male had managed to collect as the result of innumerable fights. A prize well worth the effort. On this occasion, he has again been able to retain control over his harem, but this will not be the last time he will have to fight. In the course of the month, each of the females will come into heat, and other pretenders will seek to conquer his fiefdom. After the battle, the victor exercises his rights over the females he owns. The female has little say in matters of reproduction. The master of the harem, aroused by the combat, assails his mate, immobilising her beneath his two thousand kilos in weight, and copulates. The difference in size makes any attempt at resistance futile. During the breeding season, the male does not eat, and so, after ten weeks of fasting and intense exercise, his weight can drop by as much as 40%. For the time being, however, his strength remains intact, and he demonstrates it by mounting all the females in the harem as they come into heat. The females are not all receptive at the same time. The last ones to arrive on the peninsula are not yet ready to mate. They still have three weeks of breast-feeding, during which time the fur of the young will change from black to grey, and they will put on weight. At birth, they weigh 45 kg., which will rise to 250 kg. at the end of this period. The females also do not eat during this time, and so if they have not accumulated sufficient reserves they will not be able to provide their young with enough nutrition to guarantee their survival. As the breeding season of the elephant seals comes to an end, that of their close relatives, the sea lions, begins. The males arrived around the middle of December in order to stake out their territories and wait for the females. Since then, there have been constant fights among them, though generally threats are enough to dissuade the weaker one from any attempt to fight. The females arrived shortly after and, after giving birth, they are again ready to breed. They can copulate from 1 to 3 times, and not always with the same male. They all arrive at the same time, and the breeding season can last for two months. This is a severe test for the males, who during all this time do not eat and hardly sleep. Gradually, their strength diminishes, and competitors prowling around the harems manage to escape their vigilance and copulate with a female, even if it is in secret and beneath the water.

Sea lions mating (Skeleton Coast)
 
01:39
Every year the spectacle of life explodes in Skeleton Coast. In October, the sea lions come to these shores to mate. The cold Benguela current, which rises from the ocean brings Antarctic Glacier lot of nutrients. These generate an explosion of fish that attract sea lions, who occupy the final link in the food chain. In Cape Cross is the largest colony. At this time concentrating reach over 100,000 lions. Outside the breeding season males because they are just beginning to reach the end of October to mark their territories and to protect females.

13 Strangest Mating Rituals
 
07:24
Animals do some really bizarre things to make sure that they reproduce from strange neck fights to beautiful feather displays. Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 7. Hippopotamus This one is about to get a little messy. One of the most feared animals in Africa has a bizarre mating ritual to back up their reputation. While it’s hard to tell sometimes exactly what’s going on in the murky water, it’s known that the male uses his tail to spray her with his feces. Sounds charming right? This somehow hypnotizes the female and lures her in closer. After he’s selected his potential mate, it’s believed that the water helps keep the female buoyant and allows her from not getting crushed by his sheer weight. 6. Porcupine The mating rituals of porcupines get quite detailed. It turns our female porcupines can only get turned on only 8-12 hours during an entire year. When they are thirsty, they tend to linger around the males more often than not, purposely exposing their prickly butts. This predictably excites the male and he becomes aggressive to other males in the area if they’re around. The females lets off pheromones and the male porcupine proceeds in sniffing her entire body. Once the sniffing has ended, the male lets off a huge stream of urine, completely soaking her in the process. After this is over, they’re ready to get it on. 5. Penguins In case you were beginning to get a little grossed out by some of these, the penguin’s mating rituals are a little more romantic but still somewhat bizarre if you compare them to the rest of the animal kingdom. Ladies might expect a man to bring them candies or flowers when attempting to win her over, while penguins bring over pebbles. And not just any pebbles, the males bring the smoothest, best looking pebbles they can find over to her. If she approves of the stone, she might keep it, and put it in her nest. Males even begin to fight over the most perfect stones. The nests prove extremely important for creating a proper nest. Once successfully mating in the extreme snow and cold conditions, the males stays monogamous the rest of their life and they live happily ever after. 4. Snails Ok back to the crazy stuff. Snails are actually hermaphrodites and neither of them actually want to get pregnant because it might be painful. Snails who tend to communicate for long amounts of time will eventually pierce each other. How do they do that you might ask. Love darts are like daggers that protrudes through the snail's mucus skin, and it injects the other snail with sperm in order for it to have eggs. What’s weird is both of these animals have them and it turns out like a fight to get the other one pregnant. 3. Peacocks Peacocks are well known for their impressive display of colorful feathers. They don’t have them for nothing either. The females apparently select their mates according to the size, color and shape of their feathers. Only the male species has these feathers which often appear to look like hundreds of eyes with blue, gold, green and even red colorings. Females aren’t even referred to as peacocks but peahens in case you were wondering. When the peacock spots the hen of choice, he spreads his miraculous feathers, seemingly trying to hypnotize her. When she appears to be in a trance, he strikes and soon more peacocks will be made. 2. Firefly Mating Ritual The Bachelor fireflies put on quite a show in order to attract females on the prowl. During their 2-week lifespan as a mature firefly, they basically only cares about one thing; reproducing. Annually all the fireflies of the group begin a light show that attracts the human species as well. Visitors each year flock to the national parks to witness for themselves. But guys, this still doesn’t mean flashing random ladies is a good idea. Leave that to the fireflies. 1. Garter Snake The Garter snake mating ritual is so fancy, that the proper term for it actually is the Mating Ball. Incredible numbers of snakes chase after one single female or queen of the ball, you could say. The female releases a pheromone when she’s ready to mate and snakes from all over the forest come to see if they can get a little action. Hundreds of snakes piled up on top of each other create a mind boggling image and probably somewhere you don’t want to be if you're afraid of snakes. In this photos, there’s an estimated 10 thousand snakes chasing after 1 female! The smaller male snakes jump on top of her as her pheramones are driving them absolutely insane. If you ladies thought you had it bad at a nightclub, you got nothing on the female garter snake. Sorry.

Most STRANGE Animal Mating Rituals!

Check out the most strange animal mating rituals! From funny to crazy and weird animals, this top 10 list of bizarre wildlife rituals around the world will surprise you! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "Pets You Should NEVER Release In The Wild!" video here: https://youtu.be/U-VNYP16KYI Watch our "UNBELIEVABLE Animals That SAVED Lives!" video here: https://youtu.be/StFsHsN9koE Watch our "STRANGE Things Found INSIDE Animals!" video here: https://youtu.be/ltDXiHzRhkg 10. Flamingos We all know flamingos from wildlife documentaries with their bright pink coloring and standing on one leg. And some strange things that they do. But did you know that most of their odd behaviour is linked to their mating rituals? Flamingos are socially monogamous, but only stay with their partner for one season. This means that every year a sexually mature bird is out looking for a new mate. Flamingos like to show off their wares as a group, which is kind of unusual. They can be seen dancing with hundreds of competitors all vying for the object of their attention. A recent study has shown some interesting characteristics of these group dances. The first is that there are thought to be over 136 different moves that they can display, and the more of these that they show within a dance, the more likely they are to succeed. Flamingos also live to be quite old, and reach their peak performance at around 20. At this age their repertoire is the largest, and after that, their abilities start to significantly decline. Flamingos have also been seen to use their own form of make up before searching for a partner, by applying a preening oil that waterproofs their feathers, but also enhances their pink colour. Looking good! 9. Flatworms The males of most species tend to enjoy showing off their appendages, but flatworms take it to a whole new level. They are actually hermaphrodites, so they have both sets of sex organs. It is possible for them to impregnate themselves if there’s a complete lack of other worms to mate with, but if they are in a group they start to exhibit some strange behaviour, often called penis fencing. They have extendable dagger-like stylets which, depending on the species, can be two headed, barbed or hooked. The purpose of the fencing behaviour is to manoeuvre themselves towards the other worms’ epidermis, which they pierce and inject sperm into. It’s certainly weird seeing these worms in action, and perhaps more surprisingly, is that both worms involved in the ritual can end up being pregnant by each other. Before you worry about those that get left out, if worst comes to worst some species of flatworm have a backup plan where they simply inject the sperm into their own head to allow it to reach the eggs. Sorry for that mental picture! 8. Deep Sea Anglerfish Very little is known about the creatures that live in the darkest depths of the ocean. You’ll probably have seen images of strange, alien-like fish that are able to withstand the cold temperatures and extreme pressures- such as the deep sea anglerfish. The poor guy is pretty creepy and ugly. It uses its bioluminescent lure to attract prey up to twice its own size- and then swallows them whole. If this wasn’t scary enough, their mating practice is one of the strangest you’ll find anywhere in the animal kingdom. See, there is someone for everyone! The first thing to realize is that, despite their ferocious appearance, Anglerfish are quite small. The females grow up to 10 centimetres long and the males are just a fraction of that, about 6 millimetres. If you only counted the males, they would be classified as the smallest fish in the world! So with such a size difference, how is it possible for them to mate? The female can barely even see them! The answer came when scientists noticed that they were only capturing female specimens of the fish. It was only when they looked a lot closer that they noticed odd bumps on the skin, bumps that turned out to be the male anglerfish. With their only purpose being for reproduction, the males, once they find a female, latch onto her skin. The male then fuses with the female’s body, with the tissues combining and sharing the blood flow from the larger female. With no more need to hunt or search for a mate, all of the males organs begin to wither away, including its eyes, and stomach. There is one part that remains, though, the testes. Female fish can carry up to 6 males on them at any time, which provides them with an ample supply of sperm for whenever they are ready to fertilize their eggs.

TWO MERMAIDS CAUGHT ON TAPE MATING RITUAL
 
07:02
Join my network Finamous, it's the first network that actually cares about its partners & wants you to be making cash for your content, finamous.com/apply.html Mermaids — those half-human, half-fish sirens of the sea — are legendary sea creatures chronicled in maritime cultures since time immemorial. The ancient Greek epic poet Homer wrote of them in The Odyssey. In the ancient Far East, mermaids were the wives of powerful sea-dragons, and served as trusted messengers between their spouses and the emperors on land. The aboriginal people of Australia call mermaids yawkyawks -- a name that may refer to their mesmerizing songs. The belief in mermaids may have arisen at the very dawn of our species. Magical female figures first appear in cave paintings in the late Paleolithic (Stone Age) period some 30,000 years ago, when modern humans gained dominion over the land and, presumably, began to sail the seas. Half-human creatures, called chimeras, also abound in mythology — in addition to mermaids, there were wise centaurs, wild satyrs, and frightful minotaurs, to name but a few. But are mermaids real? Yes. The United States of America has tried desperately to hide the existence of aquatic humanoids after the release of Animal Planet's Mermaids special

Top 10 most bizarre and weird ways that creatures have sex in the animal kingdom.In the human world, finding an appropriate mate can often take some time. While it can sometimes take just a few hours, the human mating ritual can often take weeks or months as couples go on numerous dates and get comfortable with each other. In the animal kingdom, most creatures don’t have that kind of time to spend wining and dining because most animals don’t live that long. Instead, the whole process of mating is often much more straightforward with males somehow attracting the attention of a female long enough to perform their task before moving on. Experts have spent years studying the various mating practices of the many species. In part this has been used to expand our general understanding of the animal world. Understanding mating rituals can also help experts repopulate depleted stocks of endangered species or figure out how to slow down out-of-control populations. Mating rituals are also important for us to understand how animals evolve and why some seem to be more successful at reproducing than others. In a way, many mating rituals are similar to the ones we, as humans, use in our life. Using bright colors, fancy dance moves and fighting off the competition – these are examples of mating-related acts that are found just as much in human society as in the animal world. Sure, you won’t find a bird trying to impress the ladies with his sports car and money, but there are birds that try to win over their females with gifts and extravagant structures. On the surface, it appears there isn’t a huge difference between the way we go about mating and many methods used by other animals. It isn’t all so straightforward all the time in the animal kingdom, however. We as humans are likely thankful our mating habits are fairly benign. Just be thankful we don’t follow the rituals of some spiders who eat their mate after performing the deed. Perhaps even worse, we don’t take after the praying mantis which occasionally sees the female eat the head off the male while in the act. No, we are lucky our methods evolved the way they did. That said, each of us can likely think of some rather bizarre mating rituals people have been known to undertake. In this way, again, we show we aren’t that different from some animal species who have their own weird mating rituals. The following video looks at some of the weirdest mating rituals ever observed in the animal world. Ahead you’ll find creatures of all shapes and sizes with a range of mating rituals that will make you chuckle, cringe or even look away. The diversity of these weird mating rituals really shows how various species have evolved over time – although judging by some of the rituals ahead you’ll think some animals have evolved a bit more than others. From building intricate structures, to using their best dance moves to putting on a display that defies reason, each of the following creatures definitely stands out when it comes time to find a mate. https://plus.google.com/u/0/116625545154795125659 https://www.facebook.com/sarah.david.5011516 https://twitter.com/DavidSd3176298

Mucky Secrets - Part 19 - Sea Slugs Feeding & Mating - Lembeh Strait
 
04:51
Sea slugs feeding and mating. Part 19 of my documentary, "Mucky Secrets", about the fascinating marine creatures of the Lembeh Strait in Indonesia. Watch the full 90-minute documentary at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJMZ6reOB0E In this video we study how sea slugs (including nudibranchs) feed and mate. All known nudibranchs are carnivores. The biggest family of nudibranchs, the chromodoridids, feed exclusively on sponges. Most sea slugs have a ribbon-like tongue covered in microscopic teeth called a radula to help them consume their prey. The form of the radula varies greatly and is important as a basis for taxonomic classification. We see a pleurobranch, Pleurobranchus forskalii, a different type of sea slug, feeding on an ascidian, or "sea squirt", a type of tunicate. Nembrotha nudibranchs also feed on ascidians. We see a Nembrotha lineolata feeding on a blue club tunicate. The ascidian feeds by filtering plankton from the water with its delicate, blue, sieve-like interior enclosed in a clear outer sac, its tunic. The sea slug everts its proboscis, its oral tube, out of its mouth and, with ruthless efficiency, sucks this fleshy interior right through the tunic. The radula teeth enable the slug to deal with the tougher parts of the sea squirt's intestines. Most sea slugs are quite specific in their choice of food, and so they are often drawn towards the same place. This increases the chances of encountering others of the same species and finding a mate. As they have no vision, nudibranchs locate each other initially through smell then touch. During copulation, they line up their genitals which are on the right side of their body. All sea slugs are hermaphrodites and contain both male and female reproductive systems. During mating, each nudibranch receives sperm from the other. We see a pair of Nembrotha chamberlaini nudibranchs mating. The penis, which is off to the side, is covered in tiny, sharp barbs which lock it into the vagina, which is at the centre of the stalk. The male organs often mature before the female ones. Small nudibranchs with an immature female reproductive system can store the sperm they receive until they start producing fertile eggs. We also encounter a mating pair of Hypselodoris bullocki nudibranchs. Their genitals are also covered in tiny spines that anchor them together during copulation. After fertilisation, a mucus-bound ribbon of eggs is laid in a spiral, often on or near the species' food source. Most egg masses are toxic to predators and are abandoned by the parent. Hypselodorid nudibranchs often follow each other around, top to tail. The reason for this 'trailing', or "tailgating" behaviour is a mystery. It's thought to be a prelude to mating, but in some cases the trailing slug might simply be getting an easy ride in the search for food. There are English captions showing either the full narration or the common and scientific names of the marine life, along with the dive site names.

Relationship & Animal Mating | Aggressive Male - Documentary
 
07:13
The relationship & animal mating between living beings have been the key to forming links between individuals in nature. PART 1: Relationship & Animal Mating. Aggressive Male PART 2: Relationship & Animal Mating. Sexual Conflict PART 3: Relationship & Animal Mating. Nomadic Tribe PART 4: Relationship & Animal Mating. Supernatural Beings ▶ SUBSCRIBE! http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc Full Documentaries every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday! ▶ Full Documentary "Survivors of Planet Earth" http://pdoc.es/SurvivorsPE Since the beginning of life in the sea, adaptation has taught animals to establish relationships with other beings. No one on the planet wants to be forever alone, and all animals surround themselves with more or less complex social structures, to increase the chances of survival. In addition, these relationships are further complicated by sexual reproduction, which implies the need to form couples and take care of the offspring, and this makes it both more possible and more necessary to develop social intelligence. The human mind has created relationships even beyond the real world, seeking to communicate with superior beings who can help us explain the thousands of questions posed by our enormous brains. It is these relationships that have enabled mankind to colonise the entire earth. Some animals have developed mating strategies in which stable relationships play no part. Here in Patagonia, Argentina, sex is a rather more violent affair. In the majority of cases, life is more risky for the males, because they either succeed or fail, whereas almost all the females mate. That is why evolution has made the males bigger and more aggressive. This male elephant seal weighs 2,500 kilos. He is capable of copulating with one hundred females in a single season, whether they want to or not. He will not be able to eat, and barely sleep, because other males will constantly try to rape one of his females. And that means he will have to fight. If the warning doesn’t work and the invader persists, he will have to show him precisely why he is the king of the beach. For the females, a short rest before continuing. This is called “polygyny” and for the females the evident sexual conflict is a guarantee of both the quantity and quality of descendents. A biological pact which benefits both sides. It is the female who must choose the best genes, because her eggs are few, limited and valuable, and what’s more it is they who will have to look after the young. For a male, the cost of an error is insignificant, his sperm can easily be replaced. Almost all animals have one mating season a year, but there are two species for which this is not true: rats and humans. Human females are always sexually active, and childhood is long, so the couple needs to be a stable unit. And that is of enormous biological importance because it is vital for the survival of the young. For the majority of mammals, the adaptive success of the males is based on mating with many females, then giving little or no help in raising the young. So, the females are often left to look after the children alone. In humans, generations live in close contact for many years, and the brain development of the child is based on psychological, social and emotional stimuli from his or her peers. The Himbas are a matriarchal culture in Namibia. Though they are nomads, their strong culture goes with them wherever they go. Often, the man and wife must invest considerable efforts in obtaining the elements necessary for daily survival, such as this cradle of birch, which the father is making for the new member of the clan. For this reason, it is important they all remain together as long as possible. That is the key to human progress - the family. Cultural defence of the family may also have developed as a way of safeguarding its important biological function, to successfully raise a new generation. This is the Ivory Coast, along the Atlantic coast of Africa. Here, the culture of the Dan will illustrate what man’s next step was in his search for sacred relationships with supernatural beings. Above the couple, the family, the clan and the tribe, the protective spirits, whose origins lie in dreams and nature herself, provide spiritual peace and strength to accept certain sacrifices of life which without them would be inexplicable. In the end, human beings seek self-awareness by building bridges with those who went before.

Top 10 Crazy Animal Mating Rituals
 
04:47
animal mating rituals. In the human world, finding an appropriate mate can often take some time. While it can sometimes take just a few hours, the human mating ritual can often take weeks or months as couples go on numerous dates and get comfortable with each other. In the animal kingdom, most creatures don’t have that kind of time to spend wining and dining because most animals don’t live that long. Instead, the whole process of mating is often much more straightforward with males somehow attracting the attention of a female long enough to perform their task before moving on. Experts have spent years studying the various mating practices of the many species. In part this has been used to expand our general understanding of the animal world. Understanding mating rituals can also help experts repopulate depleted stocks of endangered species or figure out how to slow down out-of-control populations. Mating rituals are also important for us to understand how animals evolve and why some seem to be more successful at reproducing than others. In a way, many mating rituals are similar to the ones we, as humans, use in our life. Using bright colors, fancy dance moves and fighting off the competition – these are examples of mating-related acts that are found just as much in human society as in the animal world. Sure, you won’t find a bird trying to impress the ladies with his sports car and money, but there are birds that try to win over their females with gifts and extravagant structures. On the surface, it appears there isn’t a huge difference between the way we go about mating and many methods used by other animals. It isn’t all so straightforward all the time in the animal kingdom, however. We as humans are likely thankful our mating habits are fairly benign. Just be thankful we don’t follow the rituals of some spiders who eat their mate after performing the deed. Perhaps even worse, we don’t take after the praying mantis which occasionally sees the female eat the head off the male while in the act. No, we are lucky our methods evolved the way they did. That said, each of us can likely think of some rather bizarre mating rituals people have been known to undertake. In this way, again, we show we aren’t that different from some animal species who have their own weird mating rituals. The following video looks at some of the weirdest mating rituals ever observed in the animal world. Ahead you’ll find creatures of all shapes and sizes with a range of mating rituals that will make you chuckle, cringe or even look away. The diversity of these weird mating rituals really shows how various species have evolved over time – although judging by some of the rituals ahead you’ll think some animals have evolved a bit more than others. From building intricate structures, to using their best dance moves to putting on a display that defies reason, each of the following creatures definitely stands out when it comes time to find a mate.

25 BIZARRE Animal Mating Rituals
 
11:39
It’s okay to blush while we talk about the most bizarre animal mating rituals the animal kingdom has to offer. We bring you 25 animals and the downright odd mating rituals that they have developed. If you thought human mating rituals were funny, you should hear what happens when fish or snakes or slugs try to mate - it can be some downright dangerous mating! It’s easy to feel sorry for the wildlife who have to put up with dancing, being stabbed, fighting, or wadding through waste in order to mate, but the truth is they would not have it any other way. From mid air love fests that turn into murder sprees to loving bonobos mating side by side, we bring you 25 weird animal mating rituals! You would not believe how many odd mating rituals there are in the animal kingdom. Due to their impressive dedication to increasing their species, insects and animals are willing to go the distance to attract and seduce a mate. Many of the animals on this list know that this is some dangerous mating - they will die either during or shortly after these mating rituals - but these odd and determined wildlife do not see that as a deterrent. Curious how bedbugs, penguins, earwigs, giraffes, and 21 other animals mate? Check out this list of bizarre mating rituals and leave us a comment letting us know what animal mating ritual you think is the most odd mating ritual of all!

But that might be tame compared to the stab fest that is the flatworm and bedbug mating ritual or the stalking and peeing that comes with the giraffe mating ritual. Want a terrifying image? The red-sided garter snake procreates in a giant ball of up to 100 snakes - talk about one odd mating ritual! But not all weird mating rituals are scary. The Sage Grouse and the Birds of Paradise both have elaborate dances that attract them mates and the Bowerbirds of New Guinea have learned to give gifts to potential mates.

The footage shows the sea angels - scientifically known as Clione limacina - fluttering in the waters of Novaya Zemlya, an archipelago in the Arctic Ocean in northern Russia. Semi-transparent, the creatures glow with yellows and oranges, their intimate moment looking like a dance and captured in extreme clarity by marine biologist Alexander Semenov. Alex said: "Clione limacina, or sea angel, is one of the most marvellous inhabitants of cold waters of the Arctic, subarctic Atlantic and Pacific oceans. "This miniature creature is an incredibly graceful swimmer; watching it is a complete pleasure. **Please contact [email protected] to licence this content** Company Information: Caters Clips is owned and operated by Caters News Agency Ltd, an international multimedia content provider.

Puffer Fish Creates This Blue Water Art  ~: }
 
03:13
"This video is for educational purposes" !Quick example of the beauty we can find in those BBC-Earth new documentaries. The amazing little puffer fish capable of creating elaborately designed 'crop circles' at the bottom of the ocean as part of an elaborate mating ritual. The behavior was first documented by a photographer named Yoji Ookata who later returned with a film crew from the Japanese nature show NHK which later aired an episode about the fish. Even as articles bounced around the web it was still difficult to imagine how a tiny fish could create such a large design in the sand, even when staring directly at photographic evidence. Finally, video has emerged that shows just how the little guy delicately traverses the sand in a rotating criss-cross pattern to create a sort of subaquatic spirograph. The textured sand sculpture not only attracts mates but also serves as protection when the fish pair and lays eggs.

FRIENDLIEST Sea Creatures Around The World!
 
11:32
Check out the friendliest sea creatures around the world! From incredible animals that saved peoples lives to the strangest ocean wildlife, this top 10 list of friendly creatures swimming around in the vast ocean is amazing! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "Most MYSTERIOUS Ocean Facts!" video here: https://youtu.be/BzrlpgRVPQg Watch our "Most TERRIFYING Sea Monsters Ever!" video here: https://youtu.be/B9aPB6KB504 Watch our "STRANGEST Things Found In The Ocean!" video here: https://youtu.be/XYfqi5VNgac 10. Sea Lions Sea Lions have long been associated with friendly interactions with humans, so much so that they form a large part of Peruvian culture- having been worshipped by the people there and depicted in numerous artworks. They are highly intelligent animals, which means they can learn tricks to entertain crowds, and are quite curious so they will often swim up alongside humans and play with them in the water. They are also used by the US military to assist SCUBA diving teams look for underwater mines and, in some instances, detain divers who have accessed restricted areas until authorities can arrive. Sea lions and dolphins are used as combat marine units and sea lions especially, have excellent eyesight. Sea lions are hardy, smart, and trainable and they have the added advantage that they are amphibious and can easily hand things to their handlers. This all makes Sea Lions sound like gentle creatures, but it’s important to know that sea lions have another side to them. If they aren’t treated well or respectfully, they can become quite aggressive. This can also happen with male Sea Lions because they are very territorial during mating season. If it looks like you’re bothering one then stay away but, if not, they are one of the friendliest sea creatures you’ll ever meet. 9. Beluga Whale Beluga Whales are native to the Arctic and sub-arctic, and are uniquely adapted to the cold waters. They are white in color, don’t have a dorsal fin, and have an enlarged head, which contains an organ called a melon that is used for echolocation. Beluga’s were actually the first type of whale to be kept in captivity, with the first being shown at Barnum’s museum in New York in 1861. To this day they are still the most commonly seen animal in marine parks across North America, Europe and Asia- mainly because they are much smaller than other species of whale and easier to contain. They are also a hit with visitors because of their unusual colour and wide range of facial expressions. They are really curious about the people who visit them, and often perform in shows with trainers who they develop deep bonds with. Since 1992 it has been forbidden to capture Belugas in Canada because of concerns for the population numbers in the wild, so now most of them come from Russia. They are so popular that each one can cost as much as 100,000 dollars. Whale watching tours are a great way to see them in their natural habitat, but it’s important for the boat not to get too close to them because of the way it can interrupt their daily activities. Quite often they enjoy interacting with the boats so much that they get distracted from things like feeding, social interaction with their own species, and breeding. They get so caught up in the moment, they forget what they’re supposed to be doing!! 8. Whale Shark You might not think a shark with a five-foot-wide mouth and more than 3,000 teeth would be the friendliest of creatures, but whale sharks are the most gentle of all shark species. They pose no threat to humans at all, and are usually pretty welcoming to those who want to swim alongside them. Despite their huge mouth, their throats are only the width of a US quarter, and they only eat tiny micro-organisms. Their average speed through the water is about 3 miles per hour, so they are easy to keep up with, and in a lot of tourist areas they are used to the presence of humans in the water, and don’t really seem to be bothered. Cancun is one of the best places to swim with these giants of the ocean, where you’ll really feel small next to a 65-foot-long and 12 ton fish. There really is nothing quite like being surrounded by a few of them, and the experience draws tourists from all over the world. If you visit “Las Afueras” you’ll even have a chance to be amongst a feeding frenzy of hundreds of them, which is a spectacular feat of nature. 7. Manatees Manatees, or sea cows, are also known as gentle giants, and it’s clear to see why. They are fully aquatic and feed mainly on plant life that they sift from the water. They can grow to up to 13-feet-long, weigh about 1,300 pounds, and push their way through the water with their paddle like limbs.
