Jumping left, jumping right, all I can see are frog in my sight. Seeing a slimy tropical frog, the frogs are gross with an unexpected jump but frog are another creature created by God. Expectedly, all frogs can jump but some frog have other uses to help themselves. When a predator is near the horned frog, it jumps collecting a name called Pac-Man. For its unusual eye and baby placing the redeye tree frog, which puts its babies on leaves, is a widely known tropical frog.
Main enemies of glass frogs are snakes, mammals and birds.” In the wild, Glass frogs usually live between 10-14 years. Glass frogs mate after rainy season, or during light showers. Female frogs lay between 10 and 30 eggs on the undersides of the leaves that hang above water, so the tadpoles can easily get to it. The tadpoles will hatch after two weeks and drop into the water. Some species of the frog will bury themselves in the ground, and go through metamorphosis underground, until they turn into adults.
The Choco Indian rolled the dart tip on the Golden Poison Dart Frog 's back. Then he inserted the dart into the blowgun, ready for his dinner. The poison of the Poison Dart Frog has been used by the Choco Indians since ancient times. The Choco Indians would use the Golden Poison Frog 's poison by exposing the frog to heat. They then would lace their darts and arrows with this toxin.
In some cases, varying species of poison dart tree frogs will carry their tadpoles to a small pool of water isolated in a tree hole and the female returns repeatedly to feed the tadpoles “nurse” eggs, which they rely on for survival. Parental behaviors of this highly complex sort are quite rare among amphibians. The sticky mucus on the mothers back as mentioned above also keeps the babies moist during their long journey to the forest canopy where they will be safe from predators. The tadpoles stay in rainforest pools or in leaf crevices which are flooded with water and feed upon mosquito and insect eggs until they develop into frogs. When mature, poison dart tree frogs usually live on the forest floor but when breeding they venture into the forest
Burmese Pythons are the largest snakes in the world. Source 1, Burmese Python: Not the Ideal Pet, states,”Think of a telephone pole, and then imagine a snake as big around the middle as that pole.” (Source 1). Pythons stretch a length of 23 feet and can weight up to 200 pounds. Burmese Pythons have no venom, but, they have also other ways to kill their prey. According to Source 1, Burmese Python: Not the Ideal Pet, Burmese
Hazel Tells Laverne There are so many stereotypes, especially ones to do with women. In “Hazel Tells Laverne” by Katharyn Hows Machan, the narrator, Hazel, tells about an incident that happened to her, in which a frog tries to stereotype her by assuming all women dream about being a princess. The author creates a mocking tone towards the frog through the use of diction, language, and syntax, therefore showing that the narrator doesn’t want to be a princess. Machan uses unusual diction to create a sort of mocking tone. “Up pops this frog/ musta come from the sewer” (Machan 5-6), The tone is disgusted, she doesn’t say ‘a frog’, she says ‘this frog’, she also adds how it came from the sewers.
Lake Xochimilco is also reduced in size due to less flooding (Lake Xochimilco 2015). On top of that, the lakes are polluted by Mexico-City. The disappearance of big parts of these lakes and their pollution has caused the population of A. mexicanum to decline. Moreover, A. mexicanum is eaten by local people (Zambrano and al. 2010).
David Andrews, Everglades National Park director states, “this program is what has paid for all of the pythons to be removed from the Everglades National Park area. Without the funding, the pythons would continue to over populate and decrease the mammal population even further. It would also allow the pythons to continue preying on the endangered species in the area until they could possibly become extinct.” Scientist are especially worried about the overpopulation of these snakes because of the diminishing population of animals. All of which led to the decrease of native trees, plants and fish-eating birds. It is also feared by local officials that it is only a matter of time before the snakes harm a visitor at the Everglades National Park.
In modern nature, venomous mammals are rare, with only tree orders of the class Mammalia that produce venom; these are Euripotyphla (moles, shrews, hedgehogs), Chiroptera (bats) and Monotremata (our modern Platypus). Their sting is excruciatingly painful, causing rapid swelling to the affected area. Although not lethal to humans, their blow can be fatal to smaller animals such as dogs. Studies on venomous snakes conclude that poison production is due to the result of evolution. According to national geographic, the same genes that appear in the modern Platypus DNA were modified in a separate process to snakes, suggesting that they might not have the same origin of evolution.
This is very abrupt since Red Pandas are protected in China, India, Bhutan, and Nepal. They are victim to habitat loss from deforestation or humans’ clear-cutting of their nature ecosystem. You’d think that we would stop clear-cutting their ecosystem after we learnt that they are endangered, however their natural ecosystem is still diminishing as more of their ecosystem is lost to logging and to the ecosystems’ alteration to agroecosystems. Habitat loss and fragmentation are causing the loss of red panda nesting trees and bamboo that the red panda consumes. Logging and other forms of ecosystem damages have caused a disruption or disturbance in the equilibrium of the ecosystem and have given an advantage to the seasonal monsoon; allowing it to hurl rich soil down mountainsides.
