A Rothschild is the only Giraffe that has five horns while all other species have two. Also the Rothschild spots are different than other Giraffes. Their patches are dark brown with black and orange color to them and trickle getting lighter down to the knees and stop; from the knee down the leg is white, some say they look like white stockings. These patches are used for camouflage but they serve other purposes as well such as allowing heat to release from their bodies. Another interesting fact is that these spots are like our finger prints they are never identical on any other giraffe.
The Females Coqui can lay anywhere from16 to 40 eggs, up to six times a year, normally about eight- week cycle. The Puerto Rican frog developed special disk, or pads on their toes allowing them to move up vertically surfaces with ease and clinging to trees. The Puerto Rican coqui (Eleutherodactyylus
The female will build a messy looking nest. She will lay 1 egg and sit on it until it hatches in about 50 days. The superb lyrebird is not a good flier because their wings are weak and short. They are capable of jumping onto tree branches and rocks and then they will glide down to the forest floor. The superb lyrebird is one of Australia
2012). Each individual has a unique callosity pattern that occurs a few months after birth and can be used to identify individuals in research studies. The southern right whale gives birth approximately every three years. Evidence from stable isotope analysis and satellite tagging provides evidence that the southern right whale returns
Female white sharks are thought to reach reproductive age at around 17 years. After an incubation period between 12 and 18 months the great white gives birth to between 4 and 14 pups. They are born roughly 1.2 meters long (3.9 feet) and weighing 50 to 60 pounds. Research has shown that the pups get their nutrients through eating unfertilized eggs and other embryos while in the uterus. Female great white sharks are thought to give birth to new litters every 2 or 3 years.
Emperor penguins have to live in very cold conditions ranging from -60 to 0. While living in these harsh conditions the Emperor Penguin must maintain a constant internal body temperature of 35-40. Penguins have a narrow temperature range in which their body functions most effectively so their body must adapt according to the season and habitat. The Emperor Penguin’s body is covered in overlapping feathers which act as an insulator to prevent heat loss. Also to retain heat the Emperor Penguins huddle.The process of maintaining core temperature is called thermoregulation.
So what makes it giant? Well, it weights to about 330 pounds and is more than four feet tall despite this their size they’re still great at tree climbing. And even though, they are giant when they have cubs, they weight about 5 pounds (Loucks). Despite the population of 1,800 panda bears are no longer on the list of endangered-species list. Since its population has increased and from the help of forest protection and reforestation the
Through this incredible work, there are now over 1,000 of these magnificent animals back in the wild and thousands more looked after by zoos worldwide.”(CSA, page 1) “In 1975 the wild population of the Puerto Rican parrot was down to just 13 birds. Part of the problem is that the parrots are particularly vulnerable to hurricanes: When careful protection had the wild population up to 47 in 1989, more than half were wiped out by Hurricane
