Dojo Sharing Challenge 3

I (Mrs Scanlon) was so excited when I saw this set of videos and photos of real creatures that absolutely should be Pokemon, and they got me thinking...

Check out these amazing videos and photos of creatures that were posted by a marine biologist who works at the University of North Carolina.  They are all real creatures and they were more amazing than anything I could possibly imagine.

Using these videos and photos as inspiration, you could find out about another sea creature that lives in the midnight zone or near the hydrothermal vents along the spreading ridges of the ocean floor (find out what that means while you're at it), and present the information in an interesting way. Or perhaps you could design your own Pokemon card based on a fabulous real animal or sea creature? You might even be able to find out which real animals some of the Pokemon are based upon.

Extra Fun Fact: This is a close up of the sea angel's mouth. It's telescopic and it uses it to eat other smaller sea angels!
