The eggs are hatched and development of the young ones take place during the dry season (January to May). While this hatching takes place, the females would go into a state of animal dormancy, where its metabolic rate drops and would be partially inactive (Kong 2015). The eggs are kept in the aperture of the mother’s shell (Burky 1974). The process of development takes about 22- 30 days. Each female has a different reproductive rate.
Every year we went on a vacation to Hilton Head Island and I begged my parents for a hermit crab. I thought that this one little crab would make me the happiest girl in the world. Each time we would enter the store where they were sold I would gaze into their cage and watch them scramble all over each other. Soon enough I was able to buy it with my own money one year. Less than 24 hours later, it had died on the car ride home.

Once they have attached to a host they will begin feeding. After a female is done feeding she will lay several hundred eggs within three weeks. 30 female fleas on a dog can produce up to 600 eggs per day and over 4200 eggs in a week. Eggs do not stick to fur and so are easily shaken off when a pet moves or shakes. The eggs fall on the floor where
The parental care is represented in feeding hatched chicks by crop milk produced by parents. Chick nursing is carried out by both parents.

The abdomen in female, or tail flap, is much broader than in the male crab. This broad tail flap allows accommodate and protect the very large number of eggs till hatching. In both male and female, the tip of the last segment of the tail flap is rounded. At the age of 4 to 5 years, the crab may weigh between 1 to 1.5
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

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 's
The gestation period is 5-8 months and they always yield only one offspring (Jung). Once these sloths give birth, the young will cling to the mother’s stomach for about 5 months and then will become independent (Wainwright). If the young is ever separated from the mother during the time that it clings to the stomach, it will emit a help call to the mother (Seitz). There are times that the young will fall from the tree and if it survives the fall it will call out to the mother. The call may attract predators, so the mother will usually not respond to the cries due to the danger of going down the tree
The wind would dance around the boat as we sail to a popular island.

While there, I would find tons of shells ranging from the size of a penny, to the size of probably the Eiffel Tower.
