Sugar gliders also have a longer lifespan than flying squirrels, living between 12 to 15 years while flying squirrels live up to 6 years. Flying squirrels and sugar gliders are fun animals that get mixed up all the time.

Antagonistic behaviors are those conflict behaviors that include aggressive and submissive behaviors. Antagonistic behaviors tend to occur over territoriality. Every animal is looking for the most advantageous place to live and this results in having conflicts with other animals similar to their species and their needs. Animals fight for territory for many reason including: competition for food, to avoid interruptions while mating, survival and others. Fighting becomes a result from intrusion. Many animals mark their territories in different ways. The final result of the fight tends to favor an individual in a higher social position over the other (Wilson, 1975).

Since the beginning of time all animals represent certain characteristics of an individual or a particular situation. Every human being has a different idea of what each animal can represent on every situation. So far as a class we have discuss the symbolism of a serpent on 3 different stories (Young Goodman Brown, The Cask of Amontillado, and Sweat). There is no clearer way to represent temptation or the figure of the devil but with a serpent. As most human beings know, in the book of Genesis; the devil transformed himself into a serpent in order to tempt Eve to eat the apple from the prohibited tree disobeying God’s command, however these stories make the reader realize that serpent can be heroes as well as evil.

Maus is nothing like Tom and Jerry, though the rivalry between cats and mice are employed both in the Holocaust graphic novels and the American slapstick animated comedy. Animals, like dogs, cats and pigs, in fact, always appear in storytelling, from Aesop’s Fable to Orwell’s Animal Farm and Disney’s Mickey Mouse. The animals in Maus , seems to represent racial stereotypes, or namely national characteristics as the Germans cats preying on the Jewish mice in the Second World War. In fact, the animal allegory or stereotypes in Maus are being inconsistent throughout the narration.

Imagine a single, lonely flame. Its vitality, its survival, depends on you. Now imagine the emotional commitment you have set forth to preserve this oscillating light, this sliver of hope. Now imagine that it wisps out of existence, from one moment to another. Such was what men devoted to communism, like George Orwell, author of the book Animal Farm, might have beheld when facing the despotism in Russia under the charade of communism, and such was the sight of the animals of Animal Farm, when the pigs march out of the farmhouse on two feet, triumphant, as dominators, as humans. Though late in the narrative, multiple factors clearly make this the turning point. It is because of the animal 's protests, the indifference of the pigs, and the sharp contrast the author draws between the mood before and after this scene that this is the turning point where the reader is simultaneously enraged and disappointed.

For this project I chose a stuffed panda, stuffed bear, pillow, and a blanket. These four items are identical by material-- soft. I’ve chosen these four items because they hold a close meaning to my heart but I do not need nor want them anymore.Two of these objects were made by hand the other two were bought. First, the stuffed panda has two black arms, two black legs, one black ear, the other is read, and two black eyes. It was crocheted by my aunt for valentine 's day I was planning on giving it to a friend but he never took it so I was left with it. This panda was made the way it was because it 's his favorite animal and red is his favorite color. The size of this panda isn’t very small it’s 6 inches possibly more and it’s not that heavy

Tardigrada, aka the Tardigrade is potentially the toughest animal on earth. They can be found almost anywhere - the top of the himalayas, japanese hot springs, deep ocean trenches, from polar regions to the equator. They make their homes in dunes, beaches, soil, lichens, mosses and marine and freshwater sediments. These tiny 1mm long extremophiles have been found to withstand the pressures of the deepest ocean trenches, mass amounts of radiation, and being heated to 150 degrees fahrenheit to being frozen to near absolute zero.
Animals have co-existed with mankind since the dawn of time. They have left their carbon footprints long before man even existed. They have made their homes on all parts of the globe from climates that are harsh and cold to those that are thriving with plants and sunlight. Some exist in exotic rainforests while others survive in a dark ocean slumber. They all play a specific role in the ecosystem no matter how small they may be. Not everyone considers if one small piece falls what kind of catastrophic outcome could be unveiled. Others are well aware, however, and have taken action in order to prevent habitat lose and hunting of specific species of animal and plants. Over the many hundred years a number of species have greatly dropped to endangerment
The Platypus is an odd and interesting animal. It has unique traits, a unique behavior, and the platypus hasn’t evolved much in the thousands of years it has been around for. The platypus is a unique and interesting animal due to its rare traits, behaviors and the fact it has evolved little.
The only gain that the animals earned from the use of violence was negative human attributes, which led to the collapse of their utopic society. Napoleon’s use of authoritarian tactics to govern the farm demonstrates how humans have the potential to become brutal and hurt others to acquire and protect their privileges. Such a behavior undermines and hinders the preservation of a utopic society.
