Sea creatures are animals that live in the sea. A variety of these creatures are already described in this website under sea mammals, sea reptiles, salt water fish, saltwater crustaceans, saltwater molluscs and saltwater worms.
Although seahorses are fish and squid, cuttlefish and octopus are all molluscs we have described them all in this sea creature section because of their unusual characteristics.
Also under sea creatures we have included microscopic zooplankton, corals, sea quirts and the Dead Man’s Fingers as well as the primitive Sea Orange Sea Sponge. We’ve also included some well-known sea creatures such as the Common Starfish, the Common Sea Urchin and the Common Jelly Fish and also less known creatures such as the Common Brittlestar, the Gravel Sea Cucumber, the Phosphorescent Sea Pen, the Trembling Sea Mat and the Sea Toad.
We hope you enjoy reading about all these wonderful creatures and that you will be able to more fully appreciate the extent of our natural heritage surrounding our shores.
