Independent Learning Log 1 by Brandon (17)

What I did: Read up on the "Vampire Squid"

What I learnt: Most People think of bats when it comes to vampires, and not a squid. However, beneath the depths of the great Pacific, under an astounding 900m beneath the ocean surface, lies an 15cm creature known as the "Vampire Squid". Its blood is of a blue hue and it has gills with a unusually large surface area. It, however, doesn't consume blood, or have any characteristics that we associate with vampires. Its nickname was derived from its suckers, which have sharp teeth, like the fangs of a vampire.

Summary: There are many interesting creatures underneath the sea, one of which is the "Vampire Squid".
