There are two major dangers that await an Ocean Tam: the Ornery Octopus (Ojyama Tako) and the Polar Bear (Shirokuma).
Sometimes, while playing the treasure box-game, you will find not treasure, ort an empty box, but an octopus
(O_o) Look out, because it will squirt ink at you, immediately filling all four pollution skulls and turning the entire screen an inky black!
This will empty all the empty all the hapiness hearts of your Ocean tama.
Polar Bear Attack
Life in the ocean is tough, so the Ocean Tam will occasionally take a well-deserved nap. Unfortunately, that's when the Polar Bear
decides to nip by for a snack!
Select the Calling/Discipline icon, and tap your Ocean Tam gently to let it know it's in danger.
If you don't succeed in alerting your tam the Polar Bear will rush across the screen, and your Ocean Tam will eventually float back on screen.
Be sure to treat its wounds using the medicine icon, and be more careful next time... The Polar Bear usually makes an appearance once every 50 minutes...
When first hatching your Ocean tam, try leaving it alone without setting the clock. The ocean-egg will not appear, but instead, you will see bubbles, and a sneak preview of some of the ocean characters!
