Grace Blanco Professor Ken G. Sweat, Ph. D. BIO 105 Environmental Biology Hybrid Course 6 September 2015 Topic: Mexican Wolves re-leased into the blue range Wolf Recovery Area (BRWRA) in eastern Arizona. First and foremost the Mexican gray wolf is referred as "El Lobo" which is in Spanish for the wolf.
Snowshoe hares beware! The Canadian lynx is watching you from behind the brambles! With its brown coat and ruffled fur, the Canadian lynx is a predator to all small critters everywhere! BODY STRUCTURE The Canadian lynxes’ type of symmetry is Bilateral, meaning that you could split the lynx down the middle.
The American Bison, known as the American Buffalo or simply buffalo, is a North American species that roams from Mexico up to North West Canada. They are the largest land mammal in North America. When bison are scared they run, like there is no tomorrow, which is called stampeding. Bison have very good hearing and smelling, if you try to sneak up on one it will smell you and run. Did you know male bison are called bulls?
Usually, people will use a 22 rifle for small game hunting. Big game is the most sport popular in the world. Big game in deer, elk, and bear. People use 12 or 20 gages for big game for though use bows or crossbows to hunt. There has been big deer shot all over the world.
German Shepherd- The German Shepherd originated in Germany in the 700 's and was used to guard and heard sheep. After WWII the dogs name was changed to Alsatian Wolf Dog, but was changed back to German Shepherd in 1977, because it was believed that Alsatian Wolf Dog would prove to be an unpopular name. This dog was very unpopular following the World Wars.
Some of the dangers they face are drought, bushfires, vehicle accidents, being shot and loss of habitat due to new houses and shopping centres being built. Foxes are introduced predators that kill the smaller of the species. Feral dogs and cats also prey on smaller wallabies and the joeys of larger kangaroos. Some species of kangaroo have overpopulated the country, as they can reproduce fairly quickly. Also, due to the extermination of the Tasmanian wolf, which was a natural predator to the kangaroos.
Evolution of polar bears Polar bears have very interesting history, they evolved from bears. Polar bears have black skin but there fur is white because they adapted to the arctic ocean. They use the sea ice to platform to hunt their prey. They hunt seals for prey. They have 45 teeth that help them tear seals skin.
The gray wolf or grey wolf (Canis lupus[a]) also known as the timber wolf, or western wolf,[b] is a canid native to the wilderness and remote areas of North America and Eurasia. It is the largest extant member of its family, with males averaging 43–45 kg (95–99 lb), and females 36–38.5 kg (79–85 lb). Like the red wolf, it is distinguished from other Canis species by its larger size and less pointed features, particularly on the ears and muzzle. Its winter fur is long and bushy, and predominantly a mottled gray in color, although nearly pure white, red, or brown to black also occur. As of 2005, 37 subspecies of C. lupus are recognised by MSW3. The nominate subspecies is the Eurasian wolf (Canis lupus lupus), also known as the common wolf. The gray wolf is the second most specialised member of the genus Canis, after the Ethiopian wolf, as demonstrated by its morphological adaptations to hunting large prey, its more gregarious nature, and its highly advanced expressive behavior.
This essay is about the ancient Blackfoot Indians. This is the way the Blackfoot Indians met their food need. The men hunted buffalo, and small game like ground squirrels, nuts, berries, and steamed camas roots. The ancestors of the Blackfoot Indians was living in buffalo-hide tepees. Since the Blackfeet moved frequently to follow the buffalo herd so the tepees had to be specially designed to set up and break down quickly.
Black tailed prairie dogs are burrowing rodents that live in large colonies in the grasslands of central and western North America. They emerge from their burrows in daylight to forage and feed on roots, grasses, and seeds. Their head and body are 12-15 inches tall, and their tail is 3-4 inches tall. Prairie dogs are considered a keystone species because their colonies create islands of habitats that benefit approximately 150 other species. They are a food source for coyotes, black footed-ferrets, eagles, and badgers.
Today, the Salton Basin is 35 miles long, 15 miles wide, and 30 feet deep (2). It is also around 228 feet below sea level (2). It’s current salinity is around 48,000 milligrams per liter, or 37 percent higher than the Pacific Ocean which allows only for salt-tolerant fish and birds to survive (2). The Salton Basin of Imperial Valley is one of the most biologically diverse areas in California with over 400 species and subspecies found there (2). Common mammals that can be found in the Imperial Valley are raccoons, coyotes, striped skunks, desert pocket mice, Merriam 's kangaroo rats, desert cottontails, Valley pocket gophers, and Round-tailed ground squirrels.
There are so many different, crazy, odd, things in the world that you may find extremely interesting. There are amazing animals, cars, birds, bugs, water parks, museums, mountains and so much more, but three things stand out greatly to me that just pull my interest towards them in a positive way. One animal that gets left in the dust a lot of the time and is usually forgotten and never spoken about is the alpaca. Do you have an interest for alpacas? Alpacas are members of the camelid family.
