One second they are stalking their prey, then they strike. The Burmese pythons are overpopulating they Everglades and eating everything. They have no natural predator other than humans. Humans are the reason that they are in the Everglades. Humans have even started events so that they can kill more Burmese pythons. These animals are affecting the Everglades they are eating everything, they have no natural predators besides humans, and humans are the ones that let them in.
Competition is fierce in the Everglades. The playing field is filled with native species, hungry for a win. A beautiful door is opened, and majestic Burmese Pythons slither in. These Burmese Pythons take over with their huge appetites and sharp teeth. These eating machines don’t provide a benefit to the Everglades, instead, they harm the ecosystem. The presence of Burmese pythons are changing the Everglades because they are forcing many humans to hunt the pythons and Burmese pythons are wiping out native species.
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.
Imagine our population of deer in Georgia. That’s about how many Burmese Pythons there are in the Florida Everglades today, but multiplied twice. Burmese Pythons are still affecting the Florida Everglades today. From overpopulating to destroying the ecosystem. Burmese Pythons are wiping out excessive numbers of animals like opossums, birds, raccoons, and even bobcats. If the “Burms” try for bigger game that bobcats (people) then we have a bigger problem on our hands. At an estimate of ten thousand Burmese Pythons live in the Florida Everglades. Therefore, Burmese Pythons are affecting the Florida Everglades by overpopulating and destroying the ecosystem.
Imagine you are visiting the wild forest of Southeast Asia. You suddenly hear a hissing noise you then realize it 's a mongoose and king cobra fighting. In a blink of an eye the fight got more intense. Who do you think you get the victory? Many people have studied and researching about these exciting animals and how they adapted in the wildlife.

Burmese pythons have a large number of sharp, strong, curved teeth. They have long bodies that can strangle their prey. Burmese pythons have invaded Florida’s Everglades. These snakes are very vicious, and they have no known predators. These pythons will tear their way through the Everglades. They don’t belong in Florida, and they are taking over the Everglades. The presence of the invasive Burmese pythons, has a negative impact on the population of other animals in the Everglades.
In addition, a bear happens to be a hibernating animal. Nevertheless, they only hibernate in the winter.

How do hunters help the population? Several natural predators of white-tailed deer occur. Wolves, cougars, American alligators, jaguars, and humans are the most effective natural predators of white-tailed deer. These predators frequently pick out easily caught young or infirm deer, but can and do take healthy adults of any size. Bobcats, Canada lynx, bears, wolverines, and packs of coyotes usually prey mainly on fawns. Bears may sometimes attack adult deer, while lynxes, coyotes, and wolverines are most likely to take adult deer when the ungulates are weakened by harsh winter weather. Many scavengers rely on deer as carrion, including New World vultures, raptors, foxes, and corvids.By the early 20th century, commercial exploitation and unregulated
The article I have chosen was written by Helen Pilcher and is about evolution of creatures, especially for primates. However, until now, what do our very first primates were like still remain mysterious as we do not have sufficient information and evidences which are 60 million years ago. Yet, we still cannot deny that evolution occurs in creatures. No matter for humans, animals or plants, all of them will make changes because of their living habits and environment in order to survive. In this article, the author explains everything clearly about the primate evolution was taken around million years ago and ancestors are a small and nocturnal creature. Also, she explained several specific features of primate evolution with detail examples throughout the article.
In the dense amazon forests of Southwest Peru and Northwest Brazil lives the emperor tamarin (saguinus imperator). With a body length of 10 inches, an average weight of one pound and a 15” tail, these tiny primates are distinctively unique. Emperor tamarins have a black or grey coat with a brownish red chest and tail. They have claws on all of their fingers and toes with the exception of a great toe. This is covered with a nail. The tamarins have one distinguishing feature which is fitting to their name, a long white drooping mustache. These primates are diurnal and spend their days leaping about from tree to tree. The emperor tamarin has variety in their diet. They eat: plants, fruit, tree sap, small lizards,
The red panda; a species somewhat sizeable than a domestic cat; is currently an endangered species. The red panda has a body type similar to one of a bear with fur that is thick with a rustic colour. They also have a lengthly, shaggy tail for balance and for warmth during the seasons with lower temperatures. The red panda is an omnivore. Its diet consists predominantly of bamboo, about 95%; which is very atypical for a mammal. They occasionally feed on insects, fruits, and small organisms, including acorns, berries, mushrooms, bird eggs, mice, rats, lizards, and small birds. The red panda inhabit a narrow range extending from west Nepal to east and southwestern China. They are found in forests with quantities of bamboo.
The presence of the Burmese python is killing the Everglades. According to Andrew Ng Burmese python are “wiping out humongous numbers of opossums, racoons, bob cats as well as many species of birds.” Florida has hosted a challenge to take down this invasive species.
The hedgehog is a carnivorous animal that originates from Europe, Asia and Africa. Hedgehogs have excellent hearing and sense of smell, but weak eyesight. As the hedgehog forages for foodfin hedges), he makes a grunting noise that is similar to that of a hog, thus the name "hedgehog." Hedgehogs are nocturnal, which means that they can be a bit grumpy when you try to handle them during the day. If the animal is feeling anti-social, he will roll into a ball, stick out his spines and make a clicking noise with his tongue; they are like cute spike-balls with an attitude.
