Description. This section is from the book "Forms Of Animal Life", by George Rolleston, W. Hatchett available from Amazon: Forms of Animal Life. Fresh-Water Mussel (Anodonta Cygnea). Continued.   Giant Squid: one of the largest living animals, up to 43 feet long, found in the world’s deep oceans. Great White Shark: a large, aggressive shark with a white belly and gray back. Grouper: a stubby, big-mouthed fish; many can change sex from female to male. Grunion: a small, slender fish that spawns on beaches at night in Southern California.

Dry land, wet soil and fresh water interact in freshwater ecosystems, and different species can be found there, depending on the quantity of water and how fast it is flowing. Freshwater ecosystem animals such as fish, reptiles, mammals, birds and insects contribute to a diverse habitat. An ecosystem includes the plants and animals as well as weather and landscapes. In other words, the entire population of living things in the region like a city. The habitat refers to the animal’s or organism’s home environment. Ecosystems include aquatic–marine and freshwater and terrestrial –forest, desert, grassland, and mountain.

Animal life requires water to fulfill its vital functions. From transportation to lubrication to temperature regulation, water keeps animal life functioning; in fact, the bodies of animals consist mostly of water. All chemical reactions in the bodies of animals use water as a medium. Search the world's most comprehensive index of full-text books. My library.
