10Based on just what you can see here(picture attached) (i.e., fin shape, body shape, coloration, mouth shape, etc.), infer the natural history of these 2 southern California fishes. In doing so, make sure to address where (you think) they live in the water column (i.e., top, middle/pelagic, on the bottom, etc.), their swimming habits (i.e., do you think it swims all day long through the ocean at high speeds, does it lie motionless on the bottom except for the occasional burst to move a few feet or escape a predator/ambush prey, etc.), their diet, and the habitats they live in (i.e., sand flats, rocky reef, kelp forest, etc). Explain your answers/why your are inferring the natural history that you wrote.

2nd question:

How are schools and shoals of fish different?
