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.
Someone’s most important traits aren’t usually seen till something brings it out. War causes many to experience traumatic mental, and physical abuse. In these dire moments what stays the same or changes is what truly defines someone. During World War II, Louie Zamperini was originally deployed as a bombardier, only to be captured as a POW to the Japanese. In the book Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand, she explored his journey and struggle for survival, showing that war affects people in different ways.
Northern Bobwhite Quail (Colinus virginianus) are one of the most influential and important game animals in America. Their popularity has been the driving force behind conservation, research, and even local economic prosperity. The hunting associated with these birds has become a “southern tradition” since these hunts are typically social events. Currently the bobwhite quail is undergoing a long term population decline which has prompted even more conservation efforts and research. Bobwhite quail are extremely sensitive to habitat quality which has recently been used to promote conservation based land management practices. This not only benefits the bobwhite but other less sensitive animals found within its range. Conservation
Predation is a biological interaction between two organisms of different species in a community in which one acts as a predator and captures and feeds on the other, the prey. Predator-prey relationships keep animal populations in balance. When prey populations increase more food is available for predators, and they increase in number as well. An increase in predators triggers a decrease in prey populations. As prey populations decrease predator populations soon follow as their food supply diminishes. Organisms can evolve to enhance their ability to catch prey, or flee predators. Coevolution occurs in a predator-prey relationship when the prey evolves in response to pressures exerted by its predator. The predator then evolves in response to the changes in the prey (or vice versa). Inheritable adaptive traits evolve through natural selection, the process by which organisms that have developed favorable traits are capable of surviving and reproducing at greater rates, thus passing their adaptive traits to their offspring.
Sharks are enormous mammals that live within the deep ocean waters all over the world. There are several different sharks in many parts of the world depending on temperature, seasons, food and more. Every shark is unique in their own way and every species is unique as well. Although humans view them as vicious creatures that are out to harm us while we are at the beach on a sunny Sunday, these creatures are just trying to live like any other animal in this planet. They each have different defense mechanisms, and physical features that all them to live and continue reproducing. For example, sharks have different type of dorsal fins, teeth, hunting strategies, movement patters, and mating techniques. All of this is important to the survival
These trees are seen with the bark removed and faded white from the sun. When this wood pecker was hurt Wilson compared it to a violet crying child. It surprised me that this woodpecker was taken in by Wilson and put in his house. He said it made holes to try to escape the size of a human hand going through the wall. Then took the bird and tied his foot with string to a table keep him from roaming the house. I was shocked that Wilson did not think he would try to destroy his mahogany table causing a ruckus. The bird lived with him for three short days and Wilson was tempted to restore him to his natural habitat but eventually the bird had died. I learned from Wilson these birds are twenty inches long with black feathers appearing green in the sun light with eyes a vivid yellow nostrils covered in white, their is much more detail to this wood pecker that Wilson describes so well in his writing. The ivory billed woodpeckers do not migrate and they also lay their eggs in the hollow trees the trees that are always very large, they eat insects and
The Bilby, before European settlement where widely spread over around 70% of the Australian mainland than reduced to extinction in some states of Australia due to habitat loss and competition and predation from many introduced species. Through many reintroduction programs across Australia there population has now raised.
Aristotle, a famous philosopher, once said, “The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet” (Brainyquote.com). The ‘bitter roots’ he is talking about are quarterlies. A quarterly is a test given to students at the end of each marking period to allow students to show what they have learned for that marking period. Each major subject including math, science, english, and history, are required to administer the tests. Understandably, not many people are familiar with this test because they are actually very uncommon. And for good reason. Students do not always know what is going to exactly be on a test, leading them to under or over prepare, leading to obvious problems. Quarterlies are counterproductive to students as they force teachers to ‘teach to
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 eagle of the United States is one that can be easily recognized, its white head and tail, eight feet of wings, penetrating eyes, massive hook bill and powerful claws make it unmistakable among American birds.

Bottomland hardwood forests are home to several wildlife species. As mentioned earlier, the destruction of their habitat has had some negative effects on their population status. Some species such as the bachman’s warbler (Vermivora bachmanii) and the ivory-billed woodpecker (Campephilus prinicipalis) suffered greatly. Bachman’s warbler, a species that bred in swampy areas along rivers is probably extinct, with the last confirmed sighting in the United States in 1988 (Wilcove and Terborgh 1984, USFWS). The ivory-billed woodpecker, a species that exists exclusively in the bottomland hardwood forests, has been presumed extinct until recently when a single male was rediscovered in the Cache River National Wildlife Refuge in Monroe County,
My animal is the OP Narwhal Dragon. It has the long slender body and wings of a dragon with the head and tail of a cartoon narwhal from the narwhal song. It lives in the Arctic Ocean, swimming around in the ocean itself and also swims above the ocean. It is a carnivore with a diet consisting mostly of fish with the occasional polar bear. Its adaptations are its ability to breathe fire, its extreme intelligence, its hypnotic skills, and its amazing razor-sharp horn which blasts beams of pure energy. Its ability to breathe fire is not used in defense, surprisingly, but instead is used in cooking its food. This is to help its ultra-sensitive stomach. Its intelligence helps it analyze a situation in seconds and helps it make the best decision.
