A large python, perhaps the second largest ever recovered from Everglades National Park, was captured by python research who often works within the park.
Mr.Frog left a lasting legacy for his children and grand tadpoles. He owned the world’s largest frog limb replacement agency called “Gotta Hop Somehow” His children say they will carry on the family tradition of owning the business which has blessed them so much. When Mr.frog started the business he had next to nothing. He was fighting the IRS when he discovered that he needed to make frog legs for amputees. Once he started to do that his business boomed. After The Great Frog War many frogs were left without limbs and now he has a multi million dollar company.
Waiting for him at the beginning of the reeds was a small, green frog with light green spots. It had a bubbly personality and cheerfully greeted Iktomi as he arrived.
The Cuban Treefrog, latin name Osteopilus septentrionalis, is originally found (native) to Cuba, the Isle of Youth, the Cayman Islands, and the Bahamas. Cuban Treefrogs are estimated to have been introduced into the Florida ecosystem in the 1920s. It is widely agreed by scientists in the Florida ecological community that the Cuban Treefrogs came into Florida through shipment and freight packages coming from the Caribbean. Quickly, this invasive species flooded through Southern Florida, and by 2013, they had spread their population to the very Northernmost end of Florida. Potentially, the Cuban Treefrog can spread to surrounding state habitats; South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, and Texas have suitable, coastal ecosystems that could support a Cuban Treefrog population. The way in which Cuban Treefrogs spread is quite random: occupying a boat, car, package, train, bus-- the list goes on (Johnson).
The Cane toad also referred to as Rhinella Mirina is an invasive toad species that is native to subtropic South America. Although they are native to subtropical rain forests, they show a preference for areas modified by humans such as gardens and drainage ditches. These toads reproduce very rapidly and have very few predators due to the toxin present on their skin and parotoid glands behind their eyes. These toads are considered pests due to the havoc they wreck on the other species within the ecosystem.
The craziest thing I have ever heard is that a bull frog can lay around 20,000 eggs, which is a lot of eggs which all them eggs float together. Also the bull frogs in South Korea are so big they are known to even eat snakes, when usually
The best place to observe Lemuroids of all shapes and sizes is Madagascar, where there are more than 30 different kinds (LemurWorld). They can also be found on the Comoro Islands. They can weigh anywhere from 1 ounce to 20 pounds. There once existed

The first experiment would be the most simple. In the fall before frogs start to hibernate, collect different species of frogs. In a lab you could then set up and experiment. You could simulate the winter by lowering the temperatures the frogs are living in during the lab. Then set up a few different tanks such as one with just water in it and leaves at the bottom, one with just leaves covering the bottom and one with rocks and logs. After that, you could then simulate a winter and see what the different species of frogs do to survive the cold. By just observing which species of frogs go where, it is possible to get an idea of how they hibernate in the wild during the winter. The second experiment would be a little tougher. It would involve actually going out in the winter and physically looking for frogs to see where they hibernate. With research already done, you could determine roughly where different species of frogs go in the winter. Some of the places that should be observed are rocky areas; especially between the rocks, under piles of leaves and in the muddy areas around ponds and lakes. It would be difficult to observe which frogs are swimming down at the bottom of the ponds and lakes because they would probably be frozen over. This is why this experiment would be the harder of the
If anyone has ever told you this, you know it’s a compliment. To be a peach is to be sweet, adorable, and special. So a festival that’s chock-full of actual peaches is bound to be something truly extraordinary.
Nathaniel Hawthrone was born on July 4, 1804 in Salem, Massachusetts to parents who both had a strong Puritan background. Puritans are known for their dominating personalities and strong opinions. They are men of action who do not care about other’s feelings. His family was known as lawyers, businessmen, and sea-captains. Nathaniel’s mother, Elizabeth hoped for something different for her son.
Cane toads are an invasive species in Australia with a range of significant impacts on the Australian environment. They were introduced to Australia from Hawaii during 1935, and their population has since grown to approximately 200million, despite multiple attempts at controlling the growth. They primarily inhabit Queensland, New South Wales and Northern Territory. Adult cane toads are usually heavy-built and weigh an average of 1.8kg, with warty skin (wikipedia.org, 2015). They pose a risk to many large predators that are poisoned when they try to eat their highly toxic bodies (Shine, 2014).
Purgatorius is one of Earth’s earliest primates, living over 65 million years ago. The small mammal’s 65 million year old anklebones were found fossilized in Montana. Purgatorius is part of the plesiadapiform primates, whose fossils were dated to being made right after the non-avian dinosaurs became extinct. When the anklebones were closely studied, they showed that the Purgatorius lived in trees. This is significant because many researchers believed that primitive primates belonging to the plesiadapiforms were terrestrial. They were believed to have become tree dwelling in the later species. The discovery of the anklebones is substantial because paleontologists had only the animal’s teeth and jaws to study. The anklebones were found in the
The emerald glass frog gets its name from being transparent with a slight green color. Like most tropical frogs this frog also lives in Central America. Having an average length, this frog can grow up to 8 to 12 inches. Usually living in humid temperatures, the young Emerald glass frog loves the humid temperature to help eat and sleep. By their transparent neck which is hard to see unless you have the
Sumatran orangutans are the largest non-human primates in Asia and the largest arboreal animal. Their bodies and faces are covered with fine, long red hairs. Males distinctively have large cheek pads that are covered in fine white hairs. Along with their unique color, orangutans have an enormous arm span and opposable thumbs. From finger tip to finger tip, the arm span is about 7 feet wide, which is longer than their standing height. Compared to their muscular arms, the orangutan's legs are small and weak. Sumatran Orangutans have arms that are much longer than their legs to help them reach out to branches. Their arms are well suited to their lifestyle because they spend much of their time in the trees of their tropical rain forest home. The
