Fish are a vertebrate class, like mammals, however they are cold-blooded and live in water. Fish are one of the oldest classes of animals, having been on the Earth for more than 500 million years. Additionally, while all fish share the common traits of having a backbone and living in water, they are one of the most diverse classes with about 32,000 different living species (which is more species than amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals combined). Due to the unique properties of water to transmit scent, taste, sound, and electricity, many fish have evolved to rely less on their sense of sight and more on their other senses.

Great White Shark
Dimensioned size comparison drawing of a Great White Shark compared to the size of an average human scuba diver

The Great White Shark is a large mackerel shark that is found in coastal surface waters of all the major oceans. The species is also referred to as the great white, white shark, or white pointer for its notable size. Other distinguishing characteristics include its robust, large, conical snout, rows of serrated teeth behind the main ones, and large eyes with deep blue irises. Further, it displays countershading by having a white underside and grey dorsal area. The great white shark has no natural predators and it is responsible for more recorded human bite incidents than any other shark.

The typical female Great White Shark has an overall length of 15’-21’ (4.57-6.40 m), with males at lengths of 11’-13’ (3.35-3.96 m). An average Great White Shark weighs between 1500-2400 lb (680-1090 kg) and has a typical lifespan of 30-70 years.

Manta Ray
Size comparison diagram of a Manta Ray compared to a scuba diver with dimensions for overall width

The Manta ray, also known as the devil ray, is characterized by its flat and wide body with large pectoral fins that are reminiscent of wings. The ‘devil ray’ name comes from extensions of the pectoral fins that resemble devil horns and protrude from the front of its head on either side of its mouth. The manta ray is found in warm waters where it swims near the surface with wing-like movements, feeding on plankton and small fishes swept into its mouth via its cephalic fins (the devil horns).

Manta Rays have an overall length between 15’-23’ (4.6-7 m) and a width of 15’-23’ (4.6-7 m). An average Manta Ray weighs between 5,300-6,600 lb (2,400-3,000 kg) and has a typical lifespan of 18-20 years.
