Since the frogs are nocturnally active, the male mating sounds are most common during the evenings. These frogs breed during the wet season (late May to November). Mating occurs throughout the wet season, but is most common during June and occasionally October. The male frog will attach itself to the female’s back in order to fertilize her eggs using a process known as amplexus. The group of eggs laid by the female is known as a clutch.
The northern snakehead preys on zooplankton, smaller fish, fish larvae, crustaceans, frogs, insects, small reptiles, and even small mammals and birds. In the areas in which the northern snakehead has invaded, native populations are having gradual decreases because of the northern snakehead’s unextinguishable appetite. The most notable features of the northern snakehead fish are its snake-like characteristics. The fish has a long cylindrical body with the blotchy coloration and patterns of a snake. The face has a large mouth with sharp, shiny teeth and the eyes are located far forward on the head with large scales placed at the top.
Discussion: The digestive system of an earthworm is suited to the their habitat underground in many ways. The Prostomium is at the mouth and makes cracks for the earthworm to go through to allow the worm to move around. The digestive system is also suited to the worms habitat because the organs are spaces out so that the worm can stretch out to move through the soil easily. The frog’s digestive system is suited to its habitat because the tongue is attached to the front of the frogs mouth to allow the frog to catch the insect with its sticky tongue and to quickly bring the insect to the frog’s mouth. The teeth of a frog are also suited to what the frog eats.
Venomous frogs are fortified to live in forest environments where they could be easily made into a meal at any second. The small amphibians use a series of spikes on their head to deliver blows to would-be attackers, thwarting off all potential threats to their life. According to Brody, the venomous frogs have very few natural predators in the wild, “We don’t know of any animal that successfully feasts on these frogs. Nothing can get past the head spines.” Will frogs ever be viewed the same way
Rene Ismail McKenna - C 9th Grade Biology PBA American Lobster - Homarus americanus Ecosystem/Ecology of Homarus americanus Adult American lobsters tend to dwell in depths of below 50 meters. However, some can live at depths of about 750 meters. They can weigh up to 44 pounds and reach a length of about 25 inches, however they are typically around 2 feet long and weigh 3 pounds. The American lobster’s preferable habitat is on rocky surfaces covered with algae, because algae attract animals that the lobsters prey on. This habitat allows the lobster to hide within the cracks, where it can hide from predators in its environment such as flounder, cod, crabs and eels.
The lion has internal, sexual reproduction where the male injects sperm into the female in order to fertilize her eggs. This system helps the lions reproduce the best they can in their natural environments and allows the mother to protect her children while they are developing inside her.The earthworm is a hermaphrodite, which means that it contains both male and female reproductive organs. However, two mates are typically required in order to produce offspring. The two earthworms line up next to each other and exchange sperm, and then a cocoon slides off of each one to envelop the eggs and the new sperm. Jellyfish have external reproduction, where they release the egg and the sperm into the water to meet each other.
The same practice is done by the pirate spiders of the Mimetidae family which is known for tugging on the webs of other spiders to coax its next meal, Hannah Wood, a veteran arachnologist and Smithsonian researcher who led the team to Madagascar, said. But she observed that the species does not eat another pelican spider. Wood reached that conclusion after she dropped several pelican spiders in a petri dish, but it did not attempt to eat one another and instead gave each other space. It wanders through the forest at night and waves its first pair of legs like a pair of large antennas. The spider makes big figure-eights as it walks while searching for draglines.
The poison dart is classified as a living because it has all the 6 characteristics a living thing should have. The first characteristic is that it should be made of cells and it’s obvious because everything in this world living or nonliving are made out of cells. The poison dart frog obviously uses energy because it can catch animals and can move. The third characteristic is if it can reproduce and it can. The fourth characteristic is if it has homeostasis and cold-blooded animals don’t have a constant body temperature.
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 they will hatch in a week or so.
Less than half of the cubs reach adulthood. Indeed, when they are still small, they are prey easy for hyenas taking advantage of the absence of their mother party hunt to eat one. The introduction of the young lions in the group, after 10 weeks it improves social relations: the males are more tolerant and females can share the burden of breastfeeding. Although the group movements are restricted, they are becoming longer. So young people learn about their territory for the next 18 months and they will learn to become skilled hunters.
