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).
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. As the crocodile went to grab him again, he very quickly crawled onto the bank and grabbed a large rock. As if he got the strength of a gorilla he threw the rock right at the crocodiles head and managed to crawl away. Barry realized he wasn't going to be able to walk the rest of the way to the plane.

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. Did you know that the sloth has a whole other ecosystem living in it’s fur.
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.
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 skin of the Common Stingray compose of scales called “Dermal Denticles”. These V-shaped scales give off the slippery feel of Stingrays decreasing drag and turbulence when gliding through water. Similarly to Sharks, this feature of their skin allows them to be stealthy hunters swimming faster and quieter. The only difference between the two is that sharks have more aligned dermal dencticles pointing towards the back of their body while stingrays have their scales much more spread apart with irregular patterns. Physical appearance
Burmese Pythons Burmese pythons have a large number of sharp, strong, curved teeth. They have long bodies that can strangle their prey. Burmese pythons have invaded Florida’s Everglades. These snakes are very vicious, and they have no known predators. These pythons will tear their way through the Everglades.
To be specific, seahorses eat brine shrimp. They can eat up to 3,000 brine shrimp per day! The food that they eat quickly passes through their digestive system, like garbage going down a garbage chute. In that case they get hungry pretty quick because the food they eat doesn’t sit in their stomach like our food does.
At times they consume poisonous mushrooms and the toxins can go into their skin. Box Turtles are famous for their hinged shell which allows it to retract almost completely into their shell to hide from danger. This shell can also regenerate. A case was reported that a badly burned shell of a Box Turtle underwent complete regeneration. One of its physical features is its hard shell which it uses to protect itself.
There is a type of fish in aquariums, that when it swims, it looks like a dragon or like a horse, it’s relative. The leafy sea dragon is a type of sea dragon that looks like seaweed when it swims with many brown and yellow leaf shaped spines all over it’s body. It lives on the south coast of austrailia, the only place too see these little guys. The leafy sea dragon almost looks spiny, it could really creep people out with its “leaves” but its not hurtful at all. The leafy seadragon is a mastermind, it camouflouges really welll, is a carnivore, and has a weird way of mating.
