Once an alligator “closes it jaw on a limb the force is so great that getting the alligator to open its mouth again is virtually impossible “ (Strawn 43 ). The adult reptile “has small legs and webbed feet that are designed for “propulsion and maneuvering but not for attack” (Visiting the Heart of Alligator Country) However the “swipe of a gators tail can knock a person into the water when it is most agile, powerful and destructful” (Strawn 43). Not to men-tion an alligators tail is what gives it it’s speed of up to approximately 20 miles per hour in water but then becomes a slower awkward giant on land. This sounds to be very similar to that of some of the dinosaurs from many years
He was about 10 feet away when he heard something swimming behind him. He was scared to look back but when he did he saw a massive crocodile. Barry tried to swim faster but it was no use trying to out swim a croc. He had almost reached the shore as the crocodile chomped the down onto his leg pulling him under the water. The crocodile let go of his leg as he bled profusely.
Rene Ismail McKenna - C 9th Grade Biology PBA American Lobster - Homarus americanus Ecosystem/Ecology of Homarus americanus Adult American lobsters tend to dwell in depths of below 50 meters. However, some can live at depths of about 750 meters. They can weigh up to 44 pounds and reach a length of about 25 inches, however they are typically around 2 feet long and weigh 3 pounds. The American lobster’s preferable habitat is on rocky surfaces covered with algae, because algae attract animals that the lobsters prey on. This habitat allows the lobster to hide within the cracks, where it can hide from predators in its environment such as flounder, cod, crabs and eels.
The toe and three toed sloths both live in the same location. Although sloths are the slowest moving animal in the world, that's not true when it comes to swimming. Sloths can swim three times faster in the water then they can on land. They can even swim fast against the rainforest/jungles fast currents. If a sloth wants to get somewhere fast they just drop from a branch into the water and speed their way down to where ever they were headed.
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. The bull shark is out many animals world wide that have change in order to
It does so by keeping its outer layer of skin moist so the oxygen can pass through easily. The jellyfish, a member of the Scyphozoa class, acts similarly and absorbs oxygen easily through its skin. This method, used by both the earthworms and jellyfish, gets oxygen into the body but isn’t always the most efficient way. The lion, a mammal, has a more advanced way of respiration and has an entire
This doesn 't meant that they use their extra set for breathing though. This set travels to a special opening I none back of the mouth that can heighten their sense of smell to see where fish are and how far away they are. This is especially helpful for smaller fish because they can maybe smell a larger fish and have more time to get away. Additionally fish that have more bones are more faster, helping their getaways if they run into bigger fish even if they don 't smell them before. This could happen because some fish like the parrotfish envelope themselves in their own mucus to not 3.
Orange juice is a peaceful orangutan, but she becomes violent when facing the hyena. Pi gives up his vegetarianism and eats turtles and fishes. In Life of Pi, Yann Martel describes the struggle to live and result of changes in Pi who has religious belief and the four different animals in order to show that they will often do supernormal, unexpected and shameful things and changes their own natures to survive. Any vulnerable animals will get stronger and change their original natures in order to protect themselves. When Pi and four animals live on the lifeboat, both they are hungry and fearful.
A structural adaptation is defined as “physical features of an organism like the wings on a bird”. This adaptation is correctly shown in the movie in many instances, when the turtles are swimming away from sharks it shows their flippers enabling them to move fast and when Sammy gets helped by the humans on land it also shows how slow sea turtles move when they are not in the
The teeth of a frog are also suited to what the frog eats. The teeth help the frog hold on to the prey to stop the prey from escaping. The respiratory system of an earthworm matches it habitat because the worm breathes through its skin. This is important because the air dissolves on the mucus of their skin so the whole worm needs to dry out for the worm to suffocate instead of just the mouth. The frog breathes through its skin and also has small lungs so the frog can breathe in water and on land.
