A few animals that have change in order to survive are the bull shark, the igloo viper, poison dart frog, and the red bore, according to “Costa Rica Animals”. “The Bull Shark and its Fresh Out Come” states that the bull shark had the most changes in itself in order to survive, the bull shark changed itself so it can breathe in salt and freshwater. This a huge change “according to “Freshwater biologist Smith Angel”(Costa rica and its changing habitat) says freshwater biologist Smith Angel. Because the bull shark change its lungs and cells in order to breathe oxygen from both fresh and saltwater. The Bull shark will most often go into freshwater or a river in to breed and raise its pups, “The Bull Shark will going into Fresh water only for breeding, which includes raising its pups witch is down by the mother” (Costa rica and its changing habitat) says freshwater biologist Smith Angel.
Pets are to be loving and caring and not like these killing machines. In fact, Burmese pythons are making a negative impact on the ecosystem. In Andrew ng’s article titled Florida’s Python Hunt, he states that the python has “no natural predators, these eating machines appear to be wiping out huge numbers of opossums, raccoons, and bob cats as well as many bird species.” This means that these snakes are taking out smaller animals. This is extremely important because they can drive animals toward extinction which could end up terribly for
Bradbury’s Second Story It came on large, jagged toothed, yet deadly finned. It swam just below the water prowling for some fresh meat. Each fin was extended, a long extension to push water away like Moses parting the red sea. Each tooth was sharp and jagged, with rows and rows of teeth it could have been a shredder. And from the great breathing cage of the upper body those two fins pushed water out of the way, which might push schools of fish feet away.
It is also feared by local officials that it is only a matter of time before the snakes harm a visitor at the Everglades National Park. David Tuffley, National Resources Management of the Florida Everglades noted, “you can be standing right on top of one of the animals with grass six inches tall and see not see them.” Andrea Sherman, from Scholastic News writes, “ with the overpopulation of pythons this is why there is now a federal ban on the importation of Burmese pythons along with three other snakes and has also became illegal in Florida to have private ownership of Burmese
Keeping the whales in these small tanks and in captivity feeding them barely enough to satisfy them is more likely they 're going to get a sickness over the rough years they have encountered . As the focus of the 2013 documentary Blackfish, Tilikum has been at once regarded as a victim of captivity and a maker of tragedy. Tilikum is a what you shouldn’t mess with because he’s a tragedy waiting to happen. They
SAVE THE HUMPHEAD WRASSE!!!! Why because the humphead wrasse is endangered because the spear fishermen and poachers are killing the poor poor humphead wrasse, I mean how would you feel if you were just swimming in the water with not a care in the world and then bang!! all of a sudden you feel a sharp pointy thing go straight through your brain. The humphead wrasse are getting poached and sold for $60 - $120 per kilo. The humphead wrasse is the largest living member of the labridae family, but not for long.
Each should be considered on an individual basis. I have selected the orangutans to look at in more detail to determine what should be done. Orangutans have lived in the forests for 100s of years, but their numbers are quickly dropping. They have become critically endangered, and it is common for them to be hunted and taken from their homes to be sold as pets. In the rain forest, their home, orangutans help disperse seeds for plant growth.
Most food which reaches the deep sea is composed of ditritus; the decaying remains of plants , algae, microbes and other organisms. This ditritus is eaten by scavengers such as sea cucumbers. Occassionally a carcas of a large animal such as a whale might sink down to the deep sea and is eaten by species such as hagfish. however not frequently enough to sustain life. (Yancy, 2011) No sunlight can penetrate through the 1000 metres of water, rendering photosynthesis impossible, and so there is no plant life.
In Sabah, most of the villages are surrounded by forests with diverse species of animals roaming around. The villagers might not be aware that one of the animals that they hunt as food or orphaned venture into the village. So, what these villagers do is to keep them as pets. They are illiterate and do not know that it is an offence to breed these animals. There is the urgent need to educate them and I can help raise awareness by telling my village headman who will then spread the ‘gospel’ truth about harboring wildlife in their back yard.
This shows that sharks are necessary for every eco-system and their destruction affects us in more ways then we can imagine. Sharks are very at-risk for over-fishing because they take a long time to reach the stage where they can reproduce and in general only have a few pups when they give birth. Most sharks only have one or two pups every time they give birth. These factors make the time-period
How is this process allowed or encouraged at SeaWorld when they are kept in a concrete pool? Each animal enclosure needs to be updated to meet the specific necessities of each animal. One risk posed by the current habitat for killer whales, is how long these animals spend at the surface in captivity. The whales can become sun burned and two killer whales have died from being bitten by a mosquito (Lewis, 2013). This is unheard of in the wild because the killer whales are able to swim away from pests such as mosquitos.
“It’s very hot and cold at the same time... water spewing back out of the vents’ chimney might reach 700 degrees fahrenheit” (Bliss). This has made deep sea scientists very bewildered, because there are deep sea “yeti crabs” surviving in the harsh environment. They are called yeti crabs because they have hairy legs and chests. Scientists are not sure what they eat, but they believe they eat the bacteria that grows on their hairy legs and chests (Bliss). All of these deep sea animals are very interesting and hold so much
The leading cause of population decreasing is bushmeat hunting and deforestation. The greatest threat of a chimpanzee is habitat destruction. The chimp has already disappeared from for African countries and are almost extinct and many others. Chimpanzees are no longer found in Bambia, Burkina Faso, Benin, and Togo. Bushmeat trade is the greatest threat to biodiversity in forests in West and Central Africa.
Subsisting on the Pacific ocean for 227 days took a toll on Pi. “I survived 227 days. That’s how long my trial lasted, over 7 months” (239). Constantly, he tried finding new ways to keep him alive, hence; he tried eating little barnacles or crabs to even make an attempt to train a 450-pound Bengal tiger. Through all of these struggles Pi was awarded after a while.
