numerous sea creatures visit coastal waters
to breed or to have their young

migration of sting rays...

these shallow waters are often sheltered and there
is plenty of food for the infant animals

whales make regular journeys along the world's coasts.
humpback whale spend the summer in the cold waters,
where there is plenty of food

then they migrate to warmer shallow water,
where the females give birth

many squids live in shallow water close to rocks, caves & sea grass. the female lays eggs with a short stalk, which she attaches to rocks & seaweeds so that they do not get carried away by the tides

squid eggs

raw squid eggs are yummy.. try them!

once a year, hammerhead sharks gather together
in special breeding places

each male selects a female and they mated... after 10 months,
the female swims into shallow water to give birth to her pups

manta rays live in the deep sea but give birth in shallow coastal waters, where the young stay for several years. the females are pregnant for about a year before giving birth to 1 or 2 pups

the manta ray sometimes known as underwater flier

well disciplined & good manners... human beings should be better than them! (kalau lah binatang ada disiplin, insyaallah manusia perlu hebat adab nya sesama insan)

migration of gray whales are 20,000 kilometers - the
longest journey made by any mammal

this gigantic manta is the biggest fish ever hooked and landed.
the ray measured 19 feet 9 inches from wing-tip to wing-tip
and weighed over 5000 pounds
