I have chosen to write my special special paper about Black–tailed prairie dogs. The scientific name for them is Cynomys Iudovicianus. Prairie dogs were once found from the great plains from southern Canada to northern Mexico. They were once eradicated from Arizona. In the United States today they survive on the plains of Montana, Dakotas, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, Utah, and Wyoming. Us humans have no use for them at this time. Its hard for me to say yes or no if the prairie dog would be considered domesticated, because not many people have them as a pet and they are considering an exotic pet. Also to be considered when capturing them they are vacuumed out of a hole in the wild.
Life is full of obstacles that make us who we are. Obstacles come in all different shapes and sizes, from avoiding Sirens to resisting the temptation of eating a second cookie. In the book “The Odyssey” by Homer the obstacles Odysseus, the main character, faces are monsters as he journeys home to his kingdom, Ithaca. The Odyssey can be looked at like an allegory for the journey through life. I relate to Odysseus and his obstacles with monsters of my own as I strive to reach my goal of living a successful life. My monsters are getting distracted, laziness and fear.
Mako Sharks consider humans as their biggest threats. Mako sharks are currently listed as Vulnerable species(Beardsley, 2015). A vulnerable species means if their their birth and deaths rates decrease, they will become endangered. Humans hunt Makos for sports and food(Gray, 2014). For example, they make shark fin soup with Mako sharks. To protect the Mako Shark species, they are protected by U.S. waters(Beardsley, 2015).
Have you ever seen those heartbreaking videos and commercials on tv about animals and how their owners just leave them or do not care about them anymore? Well, when teachers bring in animals as a class pet to the school it is the same thing, it is hurting the pets and the education for kids too! And some teachers may not even notice it. You may think that many animals are just being left alone at home, lonely and sad, but another problem is also occurring, and has occurred already: pets are being left in classrooms, in small cages, for long periods of time. Others may say classroom animals are a perfect way for great learning experiences, like how to care and nurture for them, but I firmly contradict with this statement,
When we visit the zoo, we all thought monkeys and lions are cute animals, taking pictures with them and trying to get their attention. But when you live next to one, you no longer feel the same. Even if they are cubs or infants, you still see them as threats. I am sure some of you are facing the same problem, but that’s not your fault. Right now, Alabama is one of the few states yet to establish a law which requires an owner to obtain a license to possess big cats, monkeys, bears or other exotic animals. I believe that this will change as you will all take part in the upcoming poll and vote for the right to exotic pet ownership. As a member of the board of “American Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals” (ASPCA), I shall provide a comprehensive view of the problem and propose a law that will benefit all parties. Yes, I agree that these animals can be dangerous, but as a part of the state, we should also respect people’s freedom of choice. I am not suggesting to ban all ownership of exotic animals. Instead, a more reasonable proposal will be to establish a law in order to make sure our neighbors are safe, the animals are safe and the owners are safe.
Imagine all the trouble of owning a puppy, owning a tiger is much worse. Imagine the expenses of that tiger and the dangers and hazards of owning that tiger. Do you really think it’s a good idea to get that tiger? No, it’s not. It’s a lot of work, and it’s also extremely dangerous. Exotic animals are not good to buy and have. If you buy that cute tiger, it will eventually grow up and not be so cute as it used to be and it will also be dangerous and strong. It’s also a wild animal and it’s very unpredictable, and there are many diseases you can catch from that tiger, and there are many dangers of having that tiger that you can’t forget.
The Battle of Kokoda was to a large extent a disaster for the Japanese army fighting in the war. The whole Invasion failed and caused major devastation to Japan and the Japanese soldiers fighting for expansion and supplies. After being through starvation, fatigue and so much devastation, the Kokoda was a true disaster for Japan.
“’Fiddlesticks, that’s what I said,” he repeated. “Why not frighten them? Creature, I could tell you things…”’ (Gardner 61) Written in 1971, John Gardner takes a character from the epic poem of Beowulf and fully develops him from a new point of view: Grendel, the monster. Grendel is the Anglo-Saxon’s resident bad boy, or is he? Rather than the angry “monkey see, monkey do” type of savage found in Beowulf, Gardner turns Grendel into a philosopher and one who is infatuated with humans. Grendel is fascinated by how they act and how they kill just as much as he, though they are not seen as monstrous. Gardner’s novel, appropriately titled Grendel, is about Grendel’s journey with the humans and how his experiences shape him into the
There are many major concerns with this snake. First, they grow rapidly to about 20 feet and 200 pounds. Secondly, they can live in many kinds of habitats. Thirdly, they live in trees, which make them a threat to birds. Fourthly, they are suitable to live in urban areas. Fifth, they are difficult to detect, which makes it harder for them to be detected. Sixth, they mature rapidly, and produce many offspring. Seventh, they can get to high population densities, which is why the environment is at great risk. Lastly, they serve as hosts for parasites and diseases (Florida 's Python Problem: Snakes Reshape the Everglades). All of these issues are possibilities. The environment though as already been affected. For example, the wood-rat, which
The Mexican Kickapoo, or Tribu Kikapú, are a binational indigenous people, as some of whom reside in both Mexico and the United States. In Mexico, they were allocated land at Hacienda del Nacimiento near the town of Múzquiz in the state of Coahuila in 1850. A small group of Kickapoo also live in the state of Sonora. The Mexican Kickapoo often work as migrants in Texas and move throughout the Midwest and the western United States working as farm labor before returning to Mexico for the winter (Mexican Kickapoo).
In the recent years, there has been an increase of invasive species in Florida such as the Burmese phyton. These reptiles are initially from Southeast Asia but due to the irresponsibility of some pet owners, they have started to invade Florida specifically in the Everglades. So far, an alarming amount counting in the hundreds have been captured in the Everglades National Park, showing how important it is to keep their population under control and from wreaking havoc. Known for consuming birds and small mammals, they show an immense effect on the local ecosystem. Authorities have hired hunters and even started annual manhunt events for these pests. These reptiles are causing problems due to displacing the native wildlife and throwing off the

Snakes can really give a shiver through people 's body. Did you know Burmese pythons can grow about 4 times your size. The Everglades is located in Florida and being taken over by big snakes. This is a bad thing because the Burmese pythons wiping out many species of animals, ten of thousands of these snakes called Burmese Pythons are living in the Everglades, and People are setting up to hunt these snakes with a grand prize of 1,000 dollars.
The Kermode Bear is a different kind of black bear because it has a gene that normal black bears don’t have. This bear was mentioned in a book called Touching Spirit Bear.
Have you ever looked at something or someone and started reminiscing negative comments in your head about them? What about cared what others thought of you and tried to play hero to get them to like you? George Orwell’s essay, “Shooting an Elephant”, is a great example of this scenario. This essay secretly hid three key points that most written documents may or may not pinpoint on. It explains how you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, animals should be treated just as equal as humans, and always be yourself.
