I am a saltwater fish found in tropical and subtropical oceans and swim near the top of the water and coral reefs. You won't find me in your swimming pool though as I can be a furious predator that hunts by sight rather than smell but I will enjoy watching you in your lessons!
I can be dark blue, green, white or grey and can grow up to nearly 2 metres long. I have a pointy-head, and snake-like appearance, with a powerful jaw and lots of sharp fang-like teeth. My body is covered with small smooth scales.
Can you swim fast? We are some of the fastest fish and can swim up to 40 km/h so I am going to show you how to use your arms this term to become even quicker swimmers!
I love to win races and am a competitive fish that is often seen racing against mackerel, needle fish and sometimes even dolphins! I eat all sorts of fish such as groupers, mullets and herrings and due to the fact that I can grow into a very large size have few natural predators. I love my food and have even been known to eat humans but don’t worry -when you learn to use your Finns I will find it really hard to catch you!
I am known as one of the fastest, strongest fish in the ocean and we are going to have lots of fun in this level and all the child levels and help you become some of the best swimmers too!
Next term, you will be meeting Sally The Sea Lion
