    The U.S. Navy Marine Mammal Program (NMMP) is a program administered by the U.S. Navy which studies the military use of marine mammals - principally bottlenose dolphins and California sea lions - and trains animals to perform tasks such as ship and harbor protection, mine detection and clearance, and equipment recovery. The program is based in San Diego, California, where animals are housed.   "The Handbook of the Mammals of the World, Volume 4 Sea Mammals is a detailed reference to the cetaceans (whales, dolphins and porpoises), sirenians (manatees and dugongs) and pinnipeds (seals and sea lions) of the world. While covered in many field guides of marine mammals, this volume does not cover Polar Bear and the two marine species of otter, which are covered in Volume 5/5(1).

    Fiddler Crab — The males of this crab species have one claw that is much, much bigger than the other one. Fin Whale — This is the second largest animal alive after the blue whale. It also eats krill and other small mammals to survive. Flameback — A kind of sea snail that has a back with colored protrusions that look like flames. Some ocean animals spend most of their life in the waters near the land. Others live most of their life in the deeper open sea. Even though the open sea is the largest habitat, it is estimated that only five percent of the world's animal species live there. More Ocean .
