Introduction to Animal Life in Oceans   

1     Oceans cover more than 70% of the Earth's surface. They are so big and complicated! To better study them, scientists segment them into different zones.
 
2     The intertidal zone (or the littoral zone) is where the ocean meets land. When we take a stroll along the beach, we are in the intertidal zone. As the name suggests, this ocean zone is always between high and low tides. During high tides, the intertidal zone is completely submerged. During low tides, it is exposed to air. Living here is tough because animals must adapt to a constantly changing environment. Barnacles, hermit crabs, starfish, and horseshoe crabs can all be found living in the intertidal zone.
