Tennessee Aquarium

By: Benjamin Williams

When I first saw the aquarium I thought it was massive. I heard all the animals. I smelled poop. I saw fish, birds, butterflies, penguins, sharks, turtles, stingrays, etc.

The Otters habitat was made of water, rocks, and logs. Individual is a single thing and population is a group of one thing. It swims in the water, lives on the rocks, and climbs on the logs.

The fish all get oxygen from the salt water which is commensalism. Community is a group of organisms living together and ecosystem is a community of organisms and their physical environment. The fish need the rocks to hide and the plants to live.

Protista: Moss

Plantae: flower

Fungi: mushroom

Animal: shark

Protista are eukaryotic, multicellular, and autotrophs.

Fungi reproduce asexually, are multicellular, and are autotrophs.

Plantae are autotrophs, exchange gases, and are eukaryotic.

Animals reproduce sexually, are heterotrophs, and have exchange gases.

I chose the human. The human is a consumer and a heterotroph. It is because they rely on other organisms as a food and energy source and they don't produce energy themselves.

producer - a person, company, or country that makes, grows, or supplies goods or commodities for sale.

consumer - a person or thing that eats or uses something.

decomposer - an organism, especially a soil bacterium, fungus, or invertebrate, that decomposes organic material.

Water is the most important abiotic factor that an organism can depend on. It is especially depended by the oceanic organisms that live in the ocean. They need it to swim and breath. Light is the abiotic factor that helps oceanic organisms see. Rock provide a simple shelter in the ocean.
