* EveryEpisodeEnding: The "Creature Report" at the end of every story, which is a combination of lecture, singing, and marching, with a [[DancePartyEnding "dance break"]] in the middle. This is usually absent from double-length specials though, as these generally focus on several types of creatures, rather than just one.

* ArtisticLicense: While pretty minor, venomous animals are called poisonous throughout the show.[[note]] Venomous means that the animal is capable of injecting venom by means of a stinger or fangs. Poisonous means the animal is unhealthy to consume, or gives off various chemicals or toxins that should not be consumed either through the nose or mouth, or should not be touched. [[/note]]
** Also, the Colossal Squid's size is shown to be far larger than it actually is. While the Colossal Squid is larger than the Giant Squid, the Colossal Squid is only larger in mantle size. The Colossal Squid has much shorter tentacles, with just a wider and stouter body[[http://deepseanews.com/2013/10/how-big-is-a-colossal-squid-really/]].
** Further more, the venomous nature of these animals is often downplayed a bit. For example, Kwazii has been stung by a Lion Fish in one of the episodes, and treats it as if it were a [[NonLethalDeadlyWeapon minor sting]]. They're not.
** In general, the fact that the show teaches some incredibly specific details about the traits of marine lifeforms...ignoring the fact that communication through speech is really just a human thing. But then again, marine animals don't generally form rescue teams and use high technology to accomplish their goals either.
