William Shakespeare once said, “Wisely, and slow. They stumble that run fast.”, and the sloth sure can't run fast. Well, actually sloths can’t run at all. Both the two and three toed sloths can’t run at all but, there are still many other similarities and differences between the two and three toed sloth. There are two different species of sloths. The three toed sloth and the two toed sloth. There are many differences and similarities. A similarity is they both live in the same habitat. A difference is their appearance is very different. As you know the two and three toed sloths have differences in their appearances. The two toed sloth has a lighter colored fur. While the three toed sloth has a darker pigment of fur. They both have dark circles around their eyes …show more content…
They have four parts to their stomach. Sloths take a long time to digest their food. It can take up to a month to digest their food. Some scientists suggest this is because of their slow movements or because of an unvaried diet. While others say it is because of their constant changing body temperature. When their stomachs are full it can count for 20 to 30% of their body weight. Sloths live in the canopies of the rainforest. Most sloths are located around South and Central America. The toe and three toed sloths both live in the same location. 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 sloth creates algae in it’s fur do to being unhygienic. Then bugs of all sorts live in the fur. These pests feed off of the algae and are protected by their shaggy
Lord of the Flies, by William Golding, and Mean Girls, Tina Fey, are homogenous stories. They share a plethora of similar characteristics. They both have characters that exhibit animal-like behaviors. There is a person who is the voice of reason in each story. Both have a fight for leadership in both stories.
The Maine Coon and the Ragdoll are surrounded with legend and folktale. Though these furry friends look similar, they have many differences as well. The Ragdoll and the Maine Coon are similar, because of their coats, species, and shows. They are different, because of their colors, the Maine Coon nickname, the place where they were founded, and what they were named after.
For this last and final book review I read the graphic novel Sloth by Gilbert Hernandez. Although a very confusing read, there were many interesting aspects to it. The story is centered around three young teenagers: Miguel, Lita, and Romeo. Hernandez begins the novel with Miguel awakening from a year long coma, with Miguel explaining how he willed himself into and out of the coma. Similar to a sloth, Miguel slowly begins to adjust to his somewhat changed life.
Above is a map highlighting where dugongs are currently located in the world. They can be found from East Africa to Australia, including the Pacific and Indian Ocean and the Red Sea. The largest population of dugongs are found in Australian waters. Specifically in the northern part of Australia, between Shark Bay and Moreton Bay. Dugongs tend to live in warm and shallow coastal waters.
When manatees are sleeping, their heart rate and breathing rate slow down, allowing them to only need to come up to the surface for air every twenty minutes. Manatees spend about half their day sleeping (“Um, So Manatees”). Manatees typically live in seas, rivers, and oceans. Their names indicate where they live. For example, the West Indian Manatee lives in the southern and eastern United States, although a few manatees have been known to reach the Bahama’s.
In the ancient times, a sphinx guarded the city of Thebes. It was a strange creature. He had the head of a woman, the body of a lion and the wings of a falcon. The sphinx had a habit of asking a riddle to every passer-by and anyone who could not answer the riddle correctly was gobbled by him.
The West Indian manatee is one of the largest coastal mammals in North America. It can be found in the coastal waters of southern Atlantic Ocean from North Carolina to Florida and the Gulf Coast. They seasonally migrate to warmer waters in the winter and cooler waters in the summer. In the winter, “manatees are concentrated in Florida in the winter, but can be found in summer months as far west as Alabama and as far north as Virginia and the Carolinas.” (Marine Bio, 2015)
They can be found in the southern part of central America, in south America they can be found in Brazil, Costa rica, Panama, and many other places. There are two categories of sloths,two toed sloths and three toed sloths. Sloths use their long claws to climb,hang, defence, and could use them for swimming. Since the sloth has long arms and claws it crawls very slowly when on the ground. Sloths are very good swimmers, they can swim three times faster than they crawl, they will even drop from a tree into water.
Centipedes were mentioned by an Elian, who says that the whole population of a town called the Rhetium were driven by a group of scolopendras and this was said that it should be a marine animal. centipedes occur in all continents with about 1700 species recorded worldwide. Millipedes share one invariable
But for a cheetah, their heart is larger than ours; it is super- sized to accommodate their lightning- fast speed. This large heart rapidly pumps a substantial amount of oxygenated blood from their longs to the muscles to supply their body with a lot of
