The muskrat often makes its home in ponds or marshes near a food source. They dig holes underneath the ponds, often burrowing in the ground and will sometimes make dens out of sticks. Unfortunately muskrats are disliked by farmers because they dig under their ponds or water sources for animals and they eat any vegetation in their sight. Paragraph Four The muskrat has to adapt to its ecosystem or habitats. For instance in the book by Stan Tekiela.
Behavior: Pomacea urcues is an amphibious. It would sometimes leave the swamps and rivers to search for food on land, even though they get a lot of food in marches. They would go in search for their food at nights and then at the break of day, hide in the water to avoid predators. They are nocturnal and quite mobile. They can however be seen at all times of the day.
Once they have attached to a host they will begin feeding. After a female is done feeding she will lay several hundred eggs within three weeks. 30 female fleas on a dog can produce up to 600 eggs per day and over 4200 eggs in a week. Eggs do not stick to fur and so are easily shaken off when a pet moves or shakes. The eggs fall on the floor where they will hatch in a week or so.
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.
Since the frogs are nocturnally active, the male mating sounds are most common during the evenings. These frogs breed during the wet season (late May to November). Mating occurs throughout the wet season, but is most common during June and occasionally October. The male frog will attach itself to the female’s back in order to fertilize her eggs using a process known as amplexus. The group of eggs laid by the female is known as a clutch.
During this time, mating takes place. Fertilization is internal, and sperm are stored within the female’s body in a seminal receptacle and the paired spermathecae. Females reach the peak of their egg production between the fourth and seventh day after their emergence. During this time, they lay eggs almost continuously at a rate of 50–70 eggs per day. The pupal stage lasts for 3–4 days, after which the adult fly, or imago, emerges from the pupal case (eclosion).
Lynx hunt mainly at night, especially in areas near people, and their peak activity periods are at dawn and dusk. During the day, they usually hide and sleep in secluded haunts such as rock crevices, caves, or thick tangles of fallen trees and brush. 8 Although the lynx is a ground mammal, lynx are often known to climb trees or swim in order to catch their prey. Lynx is very vocal animal. It can produce cat-like meows, purrs and hisses.
The northern snakehead preys on zooplankton, smaller fish, fish larvae, crustaceans, frogs, insects, small reptiles, and even small mammals and birds. In the areas in which the northern snakehead has invaded, native populations are having gradual decreases because of the northern snakehead’s unextinguishable appetite. The most notable features of the northern snakehead fish are its snake-like characteristics. The fish has a long cylindrical body with the blotchy coloration and patterns of a snake. The face has a large mouth with sharp, shiny teeth and the eyes are located far forward on the head with large scales placed at the top.
The frog breathes through its skin and also has small lungs so the frog can breathe in water and on land. This helps the frog catch prey easier to survive. Based on the evidence collected during the dissection the worms food enters the mouth and goes through the pharynx where mucus is
This is because the largest in the group is their leader. Female alligators are very protective Alligators normally breed during spring season. Research studies that the female alligator only have one partner per season. After which she is responsible in making the nest for her eggs and she is very aggressive in protecting
