A creature that walks on all four and is known to have a poisonous bite, this isn 't a dinosaur living in the future it is the Komodo Dragon. People have seen Komodo Dragons in the zoo before and have thought that this creature is harmless, until there were reports of how Komodo Dragons attacked and killed villagers. Komodo dragons attacks are increasing and is causing a problem for the villagers that live on the island with them, but there is a solution. Komodo dragons attacks in Indonesia is increasing rapidly. News reports from all over Indonesia are describing how vicious and aggresive these animals are when they attck people.
After World War II, the Brown Tree Snake was accidentally transported from its original home of the South Pacific to Guam, supposedly through a cargo ship or the landing gears of planes transporting goods. As a result of the abundance of prey Guam has, and the low numbers of natural predators aside from feral pigs and mangrove monitors, the Brown Tree Snake reached unfathomable numbers. Wiping out many native vertebrate species, domestic birds and pets, as well as inflicting emotional trauma to tourists and residents by the potential envenomation of small children. This population on Guam is the only reported population outside of their native regions, but they oppose a great threat to Guam. This snake is not restricted to just forests but
They can’t be owned as pets anymore in the state of Florida. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service prevents the burmese pythons from being imported across state lines. This species has been reported to be seen in the Florida Everglades since the 1980s. It is thought that they escaped from a breeding facility and that was demolished during a hurricane and/or pet pythons were released near or in the Everglades.
For example, people’s desire to taste shark fin soup has tormented many sharks by having them living without fins and finally die in pain. Also, the vast release of carbon dioxide from people’s factories, uses of the air conditioner and cars has resulted in global warming, which afflicts polar bears to near extinction. Similarly, deforestation excessively annihilates habitats of many forest animals, resulting in an immense decrease in their population. All of these do not represent harmony in nature at all. If humans continue to ruin the shelters of animals, no wonder humans will die eventually because of the unbalanced population of each species and the destruction of the world.
Discovery A team of researchers in Madagascar has discovered the fossil of what may be the largest frog to have ever lived. The beach-ball-size amphibian, which grew to be 16 inches (40.6 centimeters) long and weighed about (4.5kilograms) its name is Beelzebufo. ’Paleontologist David Krause of Stony Brook University in New York made the discovery and is working together with other scientists to determine how. Habitat/ Relation Beelzebufo is related to other frogs and to understand how and why they are on the island of Madagascar. Fossil frog experts Susan Evans and Marc Jones of the University College London agree that the new frog represents the first known occurrence of a fossil group in Madagascar with living relatives in South America.
Humans are cutting down the trees for lumber, commercial logging, and mining. But there are other reasons for the great ape 's death, such as poachers and diseases. Poachers have been told to stop, but it still happens. The government even made it illegal. Diseases cannot be stopped, which is why they kill so many apes.
The remigration interval between nesting seasons for the majority of female Atlantic leatherbacks is two years, though three-year remigration intervals are not uncommon. I discovered from the article I read by M. C. James, S. A. Sherrill-Mix, and R. A. Myers that the coastal and slope waters of the Northwest Atlantic above 38° N provide high-use foraging habitat for leatherbacks and the waters off Nova Scotia, Canada, are particularly important to this species. This is indicated by the large seasonal gathering of turtles that occur there to feed. By tagging the leatherbacks with passive integrated transponders (PITs), the researchers were able to trace the nesting origins and foraging spots of the tagged specimens. These turtles are capable of diving to astoundingly great depths (only a couple of species, such as sperm whales, are known to dive deeper) due to their leathery ‘shell’, that unlike other terrestrial and sea turtles alike, lacks the presence of scutes.
Pandas Did you know that pandas have lived on earth for more than two million years?! Well, it’s true, but today they are almost extinct! But other than that they are these cute chubby little creatures that we can go and see in China or at the zoo. Pandas are so cool to learn about and their diet is a little weird. They also poop 100 times a day because they eat so much bamboo and food.
The consumers are cassowary, insects, ulysses, butterflies, whichetty grub, spotted cuscus, sugar glider, goanna, azure kingfisher, and feral pigs. Cassowaries eat the reptiles and the crocodiles eat the platypuses. Estuarine Crocodile is one of the well known species in Daintree. According to the article titled Fauna of the Daintree Rainforest. (n.d.) this creature continues to be a threat to visitors who are unaware of the dangers associated with swimming among them.
