Answer these questions for each of the three creates:

How would you categorize the create? (fish, mammal, crustacean)

Where does it live? (Pacific Ocean, Atlantic Ocean, in tropical waters?)

What does it eat?

What are the features of your creature?

Is it a carnivore? ( does it eat other animals in the sea or does it eat plant life in the ocean?)

Do they eat the same types of food?

Do they live in the same ocean or environment?

Are their eating habits the same? (eat other animals or plants?)
