Hi guys just a little question to see what people like really!
What is you're favourite sea animal?
Mines a ''Killer Whale''.
i do not know why just love the way they look. they way they move is so cool cinda like um i will get there when i get there.
i know they are bad for the reef's but i just like them
never seen one in real live just pic's and videos of them
Octopus. Because I love their intelligence and abilities like changing color, squeezing into tiny spaces etc. : 3
my fave would be the rear, elusive and random poking things SeaSiren :P
Current status: working 2-10 really s*#k ^_^
Hahahaaa I played with her on the diving pool and she poked a star fish .. Her hand went right through it xD Super Siren.
hyppocamp (maybe not good orthograph) ^^
why ? because its amazing to see underwater creature that have exactly same head than a horse...mysterious sea
dont blame me if i not speak good english, i do my best ^^
just discovery you english people call the "hyppocampe" , seahorse....thats logic and all.. definitly english people try to speak more easily than everybody else XD
Actually, almost all latin languages uses the word "Hippocampe/Hippocampus".
The "hippo" is with a "I" not a "Y". "Hippo" means "Horse" in greek, like "Hippocampe" means "horse-seafish". "Hypo" means "under/low", like "Hypothermia" means "low-heat".
"Hippopotamus" : "Horse-river".
"Hypoglycemia" : "low-sweet-blood"
And, to be complete, note that there is actually a "Hypohippus", meaning, of course, "low-horse"
(this linguistic moment was presented to you by Anahita/Anahit, which is actually a non-gender adjective in old persian meaning "pure".)
hey, hippocampe is also an part of the brain if i remember good, for the memory and space .
actually my "hyppo" was a typo i have make by thinking english speaker use "y" at replace of "i"..
see, my english is terrible, error like that, i make around a thousand in only 1 line of 5 words. ://
Isn't that part of the brain called Hippocampus? Or is that just the dutch version?
Nope, Hippocampus works in English :
Named after the Seahorse :)
ah lol look like i fail again in the name, at least i remember good about this part of brain..lol, look like my own hyppocampus is out of date.. ://
Well, you were right, almost. Hippocampe is the French name for both and we, French speaking people, like to frenchize every latino-greek words where English speakers tend to keep them Latin (hippocampus/hippocampe)
For me it's a sea turtle
Because I like the way it swims, look peaceful. Always makes me feel calm when I see it on TV. Would be nice to see one in person under the sea
Definately the Giant Squid

Mmm probably Sperm Whales, they are the masters of diving!
Or the Lute Turtle because it looks so ancient, also I love its colors and patterns.
And now, I would like to answer the initial question :
I had many favourite see animal. Sharks, dolphins, swordfish...
But everytime I think about this question, only one stays in my mind. One image, one beauty I have in mind since I am a child :
The Blue Whale.
I it just like an underlying obsession, like some primitive instinct that I can't change.
And I don't want to.
The heaviest animal ever wandered our planet. A testimony of time and seas.
Just look at this and tell me this is not beautifull.
My favs are Dolphins and Sea Lions. While growing up I would go to the Miami Seaquarium quite a lot and the dolphins and Sea Lions always seem the most playful. I was able to swim with the dolphins on many occasions and every time it is a thrill.
No real favorites, but I'm certainly intrigued by rays and skates.

The rays is the Prima ballerina of the sea Opera. <3
Mine has to be Dolphins! It is simply because they are lovely, adorable and smart! ;)
Fill my heart with song and let me sing forever more.
It's true! It's very hard to choose between so many awesome ones xD
Sharks! any species, any size... just sharks. Because I believe they are one of the few predatory animals a human can get close to without getting hurt at all and they are powerful, beautiful, majestic creatures.
Work is for people who don't dive
clownfish because.. idk. i just like 'em
Can I have two cuz I'm greedy? For me it has to be Dolphins and Sea Horses.
im greedy 2 then sea horses also. 8-)
My favourites are the nautilus (for its marvellous symmetry) and the humpback whale (for its song).
Oh, and those things that go into paella. Mmmhhh...
