“I’m so afraid of the water in skyrim that I will go out of my way to go under it at all. If I have to go under I will hold my breath until I’m out of the water. I know nothing in the water can hurt me that bad but the murky water just freaks me out.“
The Common Thresher Shark, Alopias vulpinus (Lamniformes - Alopiidae), is a species of shark virtually circumglobal, with a noted tolerance for cold waters. Common thresher sharks weigh 348 kg on average and can reach up to 500 kg. They range from 1.6 to 6 m in length, averaging 2.74 m. Up to 50 % of a thresher’s length is due to the characteristic enlarged upper lobe of its caudal fin. Alopias vulpinus is the largest of the thresher species.
This species is listed as Vulnerable globally because of their declining populations, as these sharks are especially vulnerable to fisheries exploitation (target and by-catch) because its epipelagic habitat occurs within the range of many largely unregulated and under-reported gillnet and longline fisheries, in which it is readily caught.
Ctenophores (Greek for “comb-bearers”) have eight “comb rows” of fused cilia arranged along the sides of the animal. These cilia beat synchronously and propel ctenophores through the water. Many ctenophores, like various other planktonic organisms, are bioluminescent, able to give off light.
