In the short story, “A sound of Thunder”, Ray Bradbury used figurative language to make a bigger impact on the story. When Eckels goes into the office he sees and hears, “... A sound like a gigantic bonfire burning all of Time, all the years and all the parchment calendars- all the hours piled high and set aflame.” The author, Ray Bradbury, wanted his audience to have a specific image set in the audience’s head. By using a simile he help the reader imagine how Eckle’s is going to get to the past. Once they are in the past and see the Tyrannosaurus Ray Bradbury uses imagery to explain what the dinosaur looks like. The Tyrannosaurus was described as, “...thirty feet above half the trees, a great evil of god, folding its delicate watchmaker’s
Ecosystems are something we never think about. We let nature take over it’s way of life. What we don’t realize is that these systems could be corrupt by anything at any given time. This is, unfortunately, an issue in many places, but there is one place in particular. The Everglades, located in Florida. Burmese Pythons are overpopulating The Everglades, causing many effects on the ecosystem. This is affecting the local animals, the people, and the snakes themselves.
Lizards. What comes to mind? Typically they live on land, in the desert scurrying across the sand. Lots of lizards are fast on land, but this one is fast on water. Not just being able to swim underwater, but being able to sprint directly on the water’s surface. What does this lizard eat that fuels its fast dash across the water? What features has the basilisk have that allow them to not sink into the water? How does the basilisk defeat gravity? Would it be possible for humans to walk on water? With the combination of specialized features and blazing speed with the right environment, the basilisk earns the nickname of the Jesus Christ lizard.
Well in both movies as you can see the animal seems in control of the people like in jaws the shark seem to be really smart because everything that the Capitan Quint try to do to the shark seem like a game for the white shark because he was in control at that moment. But it was impossible to kill the smart shark because I think he knew every move that they did to try to kill the shark. Else I think he knew the island around him because he knew were the people went or when they were in the water.
So much trouble goes into dealing with an alligator that’s why I strongly believe that we shouldn’t have gators living in the SoVi lake. What’s the point of constantly having to deal with this issue. We get rid of one gator and find it a new home and then we just put a new one in its place and then in a couple of months
Ray Bradbury used figurative language to describe the Tyrannosaurus Rex in “A Sound of Thunder.’’ Ray Bradbury compared the legs to pistons, this means that the Tyrannosaurus Rex has strong legs. He compared it’s eyes to ostrich eggs, this means that the dinosaur has big eyes. He also compared muscles to thick ropes, this means that the dino has big thighs. Figurative language was used to make the story more realistic, and make the story come to life.
A wetland is an area where the land is saturated with water and has wetland plants. Wetlands are important because they reduce the damages of flooding. The Everglades is a very large shallow wetland in south Florida. Tens of thousands years ago, glacial retreat submerged portions of the Florida peninsula and water level rose. Today, water discharges from Orlando through the Kissimmee River and to Lake Okeechobee. Lake Okeechobee is a large and shallow lake. Water discharges in sheet flow from Lake Okeechobee to the Florida Bay and eventually to the ocean. The Everglades sometimes experiences hurricanes and bring in lots of water.
“...50% of the original wetlands of South Florida no longer exist today.” The Everglades has a big effect with the water supply. The Everglades has been having many issues with the water supply. Containing,the history of the Everglades, the problems with the water supply today, and the issues on the recent attempts to improve the water supply in the Everglades National Park.

Burmese Pythons are taking over the Florida Everglades, so the state’s fish and wildlife commission is holding its first ever Python challenge. The over population of Burmese pythons in the Florida Everglades is like the population of deer in Georgia. There are more than ten thousand Burmese Pythons in the Florida Everglades. Burmese Pythons are going to wipe out large numbers of small animals.To solve this horrendous problem,
The American Alligator is found in the southern U.S. The American Alligator is a carnivore. The American Alligator is the top consumer of the everglades. Because of its high position, it is able to weave in the food web at more than one trophic level, such as secondary, tertiary, and quaternary consumer. They are threatened mainly by habitat loss and confrontation with people. Humans hunt the American Alligator for their skin (leather) and also for their

These creatures live in coral reefs for many reasons as I said before, for housing, for finding food and even for hiding from their predators. There are all types of different creatures with shining colors and surprising shapes.
Mammals and reptiles have been on earth for millions of years. They are both the two largest animals. Both mammals and reptiles can live together in different habitats even though there are several differences between them.
