This feat is rather amazing but the basilisk can only run for for about 10 to 20 meters before they slow down enough to sink (“Do the Lizard Walk”). So don’t think that these lizards are living on the surface of the water, they usually only run to escape from predators or to chase prey and they otherwise spend the majority of their time in the trees and rocks close to the water so that they can sprint away at a moment’s notice. However, if they’re escaping from a predator, after running they can swim half a hour underwater without coming up for air (“Do the Lizard
The Burmese python has become a predatory species in the Florida Everglades. The reason for this problem is the rapid growth rate of the species occurring all over the Everglades. The species have become pets and then thrown in canals. They also escape from zoos and move from other states because of the warm moist weather. The environment is an excellent breeding ground for the ever growing population of Burmese pythons in the Everglades.
Bradbury’s Second Story It came on large, jagged toothed, yet deadly finned. It swam just below the water prowling for some fresh meat. Each fin was extended, a long extension to push water away like Moses parting the red sea. Each tooth was sharp and jagged, with rows and rows of teeth it could have been a shredder. And from the great breathing cage of the upper body those two fins pushed water out of the way, which might push schools of fish feet away.
This means that that you could basically split both of the animals in half and both sides would be the same because they are bilaterally symmetrical, both halves of the body are identical. The bodies do obviously look very different though since the earthworm is snake like and has no appendages whereas the bullfrog has appendages and uses them to move around. The bodies of the two are somewhat similar but also have very different appearances. The Bullfrog and Earthworm are similar in terms of habitat because they both need a moist environment to survive, they can’t allow their skin to dry out. The big difference between the two though is that the earthworm lives underground in soil and the bullfrog lives above land in ponds or lakes.
Some species of the frog will bury themselves in the ground, and go through metamorphosis underground, until they turn into adults. Other species go through metamorphosis in the water. South America has many mysteries, and will always have many mysteries. The glass frog will be one of them for a while. Its appearance is part of the mystery, and it mates and lays eggs like any other frog.
Howler monkeys are one of the largest New World monkeys found in South and Central America, more specifically found in tropical forests of eastern Bolivia, northern Argentina, southern Brazil, and Paraguay. They live in large social groups that contains all of the family members such as parents, siblings, aunts and other relatives. They form a family of 8 or more members that stay and survive together. A unique fact about their group structure is that some of the male and female will leave the group they were born in and move on to join a total new group, with the majority of their lives growing up is spent in groups they weren’t born in or related to. Male and female howler monkeys are quite different in their appearance.
Doodle is described as having thin weak legs as the ibes is also described as being weak and having thin weak legs. Doodle was very weak and always shivered like an old man, just like the Ibis who are very weak and also shiver. Another way that the Scarlet Ibis can be a symbol of Doodle is that both Doodle and the ibis are described as coming from an unfamiliar, exotic place which means that they both cannot survive
Once an alligator “closes it jaw on a limb the force is so great that getting the alligator to open its mouth again is virtually impossible “ (Strawn 43 ). The adult reptile “has small legs and webbed feet that are designed for “propulsion and maneuvering but not for attack” (Visiting the Heart of Alligator Country) However the “swipe of a gators tail can knock a person into the water when it is most agile, powerful and destructful” (Strawn 43). Not to men-tion an alligators tail is what gives it it’s speed of up to approximately 20 miles per hour in water but then becomes a slower awkward giant on land. This sounds to be very similar to that of some of the dinosaurs from many years
This shows Christopher’s experience from isolated to open, in other words this shows how the story is surrounding the theme of isolation. “It takes me a long time to get use to people I do not know.” -Haddon,35. This quote is from page 35 in the book, where Christopher expresses the difficulties he has to get use to strangers. The theme of isolation is shown in this quote because of the following. For most people getting use to others takes time, research shows the average time for people to get use to others is around one to two weeks.
You can get very sick from having an exotic pet because of all the diseases they carry. Exotic animals are wild. They do not adjust well to a captive environment. “They require special care, housing, diet, and maintenance that the average person cannot provide.” (Michele C. Hollow)
