Aquatic Animals


Whether you’re peering into an ocean, lake, river, or other body of water, you’re bound to find an array of beautiful and diverse aquatic animals. From coral reefs to mucky, slow-moving rivers, these animals in these environments couldn’t be more diverse or amazing.Many of these animals also have important relationships with each other – for example, the clownfish (you might know this animal as “Nemo”) has a symbiotic relationship with the anemone. It lives within the anemone’s tentacles and gets protection, while it eats parasites off the anemone and helps increase water circulation around its tentacles by fanning.
