Only the larva of this insect can actually eat cloth, the adults just don 't have the mandibles to do so. They have four life stages, the egg, larva, pupa and adult. The adults only live two to four weeks. The larva are attracted to animal products that contain keratin. This is a fibrous protein found in hair and skin.
Spider monkeys live in the upper layers of the rainforest, and forage in the high canopy, from 25 to 30 m (82 to 98 ft). They primarily eat fruits, but will also occasionally consume leaves, flowers, and insects. Due to their large size, spider monkeys require large tracts of moist evergreen forests, and prefer undisturbed primary rainforest. [Lang, 2007] They are social animals and live in bands of up to 35 individuals but will split up to forage during the day.
Fossil frog experts Susan Evans and Marc Jones of the University College London agree that the new frog represents the first known occurrence of a fossil group in Madagascar with living relatives in South America. " Beelzebufo appears to be a very close relative of a group of South American frogs known as 'ceratophyrines, ' or 'pac-man ' frogs, because of their immense mouths," said Krause. But why wasn’t Beelzebufo found in South America? "We 're asking ourselves, 'What 's a 'South American ' frog doing half-way around the world, in Madagascar? '" said Krause. “One possibility is that there was a land
Dlnr Hawaii has written that “Mongooses are opportunistic feeders that will eat birds, small mammals, reptiles, insects, fruits, and plants. They prey on the eggs and hatchlings of native ground nesting birds and endangered sea turtles. The small Indian mongoose has been blamed with the extinction of ground-nesting birds in Jamaica and Fiji and commonly kill birds, including 8 federally listed endangered Hawaiian birds, such as the Hawaiian crow (‘alalā), petrels (ʻuʻau) and Hawaiian goose (nēnē). This research explains that mongooses feed on native animals and eggs of native animals. Mongooses have caused a large number of deaths of native Hawaiian Sea Turtles and made extinct many indigenous
The Golden Cheeked Warbler eats insects and spiders. It is also known to eat caterpillars during the breeding season. This is an insectivorous bird, meaning it only eats insects and invertebraes. They pluck the insect from the surface that they are sitting on, or grab them while in flight.
This makes it clumsy on land, but a surprisingly great swimmer. They also have an incredibly strong grip provided by their claws, which helps them stay up in trees There main prey are: buds, leaves, fruit There main predators are: Eagles, snakes, and jaguars
The ants of Flydale despised spiders, so this was no exception. Longlegs seemed like she would be a good fit. She was young, optimistic, and level-headed, or it seemed so, until the U.I. fled the country and left Longlegs on her own. Longlegs was tyrannical. She took over and worked the public beyond
Sometimes the cuttle fish will use its arms to walk across the ocean floor to hunt food and to keep away from larger predators. Their favorite food is crab, but they also eat small fish, shrimp, and some are even carnivores. They have a fin like thing that goes around their bodies so they can swim. The cuttlefish also has an internal shell called the cuttlebone.
“Sepia apama has a bulky body, with 10 appendages (8 short, heavy arms, and 2 larger extensible tentacles)” (Aglibot). These two retractable tentacles are used for catching prey and mating, Sepia apama mate during the Southern Hemisphere winter, June to August. When mating a male's retractable tentacles are extended completely out to make themselves look bigger and they change their color very quickly to attract a mate. They eat crabs, fish, and crustaceans, which are shrimp, lobsters, krill, and barnacles. The retractable tentacles are used to eat these organisms, by grabbing the prey they hold while Sepia apama eats away with its parrot like beak.
It will sometimes also eat a polar bear. Its hunting method is unique and interesting. To eat fish, it stuns it with a hard slap from its powerful, armored tail. Then it takes its horn and impales it. Finally, it cooks it with its fire breathing and then eats it.
They have a wide variety of preys, however they prefer to prey on stingrays (Strong, 1990). Their denticles are used to prey on the stingrays in order to facilitate their feeding. These denticles are used more as teeth than fish scales of how sharp and dangerous they are. They also prey on invertebrates, small boney fish, and other sharks as well. They travel throughout the coastal semi ocean (Carlson, 2002).
Even though mantis shrimp are colorful and interesting to look at, they are very, very dangerous to handle and should be avoided without proper handling equipment. Some may call them a “living knife”. Fishermen see the shrimp a lot when getting their nets out of the water because they like living at the bottom of the ocean and the nets ruff the bottom
The Anglerfish has a symbiotic relationship of parasitism. The male Angler Fish will attach onto the female Anglerfish with his teeth and over time he will fuse with the female Anglerfish, and use up the resources of the female Anglerfish. A female Anglerfish can have 6 male Anglerfish attached at a time. When the female Anglerfish
