Purpose: The purpose of the experiment was to understand how strong a bessbug by using weights and observing the time the best bug takes to travel to a certain distance. Background Information: The horned Passalus; also known as the Bess Beetle, is widely known beetle that is easily recognized. The Bessbug is a shiny black insect with a hard shell. The bess beetle lives in damp rotten wood, which also serves as their source of food. Bess beetles can lift up to 100 times its weight.
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.
Having effects on local animals starts out with the fact that Burmese pythons are carnivores. Source 1 states,” Burmese pythons are carnivores and survive primarily on small birds and mammals.” (Source 1). This shows how burmese pythons are carnivores and primarily feast on small birds and mammals such as opossums, raccoons, and bobcats, as well as other bird species. As roaming around freely in the Everglades, Burmese pythons don’t have any natural predators. Source 2 states,”With no natural predators, these eating machines appear to be wiping out huge numbers of opossums, raccoons, and bobcats, as well as many bird species.” (Source 2) This shows how without any predators around, Burmese pythons consume and wipe out lots of animals in the Everglades.
At any given time, a manatee typically has no more than six teeth in each jaw of its mouth. Manatees have a simple stomach, but a large cecum, in which they can digest tough plant matter. In general, their intestines have a typical length of about 45 meters, which is unusually long for animals of their size. Manatees are the only animal known to have a vascularized cornea. On the average, an adult manatee measures up to 4.0 meters long, and weigh as much as 590 kilograms with recorded measures beyond the mentioned values; females that tend to be larger and heavier have two teats, one under each flipper.
Evolution Domain: Eukarya Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Class: Actinopterygii Order: Perciformes Family: Centrarchidae Genus: Micropterus Species: salmoides The normal weight of the largemouth is one kilogram. On the other hand, certain largemouth basses have gotten to be over ten kilograms in weight. The males usually does not get longer than 40 center meters, while the females can get to be 56 center meters long. The largemouth bass has a big, but somewhat slanted mouth. Its body is slim and egg-shaped shaped in cross section.
The chimps(chimpanzee)have a thick set body while the baboons have a strong torso. Different baboons have different colored fur, but all chimps have lots of black fur. All baboons have coarse body hair, but all chimps hair is just long. Baboons have long bushy tails and a bare rump. Also, the chimps have no tail and have hair on their rump.
The, Skunk, Ape, also, known, as, the, Florida, Bigfoot, is, a, hominid, cryptid, said to inhabit the US states of Florida. According to the United States National Park Service the skunk ape does not exist. Reports of the skunk ape were particularly common in the 1960s and 1970s. Skunk Ape said to be a large hairy bipedal mammal. It’s able to weigh up to 200 kg and reach a length of about 180-215 with a red and brown fur that covers the body like a gorilla.
The gorilla is a very interesting animal. There are actually 2 kinds of gorilla’s, the mountain gorilla and the lowland gorilla. Even though they are very similar there are some differences, like the mountain gorilla usually has more hair than the lowland gorilla. Another difference is the size. The lowland gorilla is usually 4 to 6 feet tall and they can weight up to 400 pounds, but the mountain gorilla can get up to 485 pounds.
Despite the red pandas name they are actually not considered pandas at all, and they are not closely related to giant pandas. Red pandas are still classified as endangered, and their populations are drastically decreasing. Red pandas are considered Ailurus Fulgens. The essential reason why people first named them Ailurus Fulgens is because Ailurus Fulgens mean fire-colored or shiny (Bradford). The fire cat has an abundant range that extends from western Nepal to northern Myanmar, they are also found in mountainous areas of southwestern China.
A wide variety of insect, amphibian, and reptile species also populate the forest floor. The scorpion is a forest floor insect that feeds on other insects and spiders but has to guard out for snakes and other animals. Army ants, the most hazardous kind of ants, call the rainforest floor home. Their food source is abundant as they will move in colonies to attack and eat everything they come in interaction with, even humans. Giant anteaters, beetles, frogs, lizards, snakes including the giant anaconda, termites, and insects of every kind thrive by the millions in the moist, dark weather of the forest floor.
