34 Unique Marine Creatures

From Freaky Fish to Geeky Sea Creatures

— February 5, 2011 — World
Marine biologists find many interesting sea creatures and have often wondered how they survived whether its theories on food intake or their biological make up. One thing that's certain is that lots of sea creatures depend on salt water to survive, but where does the salt come from? Courtesy of Nicole “Snookie” Polizzi she has the answer to why the ocean is salty. In last night’s episode she told a fellow guido that ocean water is salty because of whale sperm. Perhaps that’s why the Little Mermaid wanted life on land so badly.

Inspired by Snookie’s and the mysteries of the deep, here are a few unique marine creatures who depend on water to survive.
