I said to my friend Leah as we walked along the rocky shore. We began to head toward the looming cliffs in front of us, where the pools were. Our group leader Amanda explained how we were finding crabs for the octopus, but we barely paid attention as we began to look under just about every movable rock in sight. Annoyingly though, every time somebody found a crab they would almost shriek “I found a crab!!!!”and jump away.
Invasive species interact with the global health of ecosystems; cause great damage to natural systems and are a huge cost to society as a whole (1). Biologists and environmentalists are alarmed that the invasions of these species could lead to large-scale declines and extinction of native species (3). There are approximately 50,000 foreign species Living in the United States, causing major environmental damages which costs add up to about $120 billion a year. It is believed that about 42% of the threatened or endangered species are at risk because of invasive species (4).
There are also two lobsters found in this area, the spiny lobster and the spotted spiny lobster. Lobsters can live for up to fifteen years old and grow up to three feet in length. They are also very similar to crabs and shrimp, all of them have a hard exoskeleton, lots of legs and really long antenna. The West Indian Manatee is most commonly in the keys in the winter season. Manatees can weigh between eight hundred to twelve
The time I adopted my pet from the no-kill animal shelter To start with, I was very thrilled to go to the no- kill animal shelter to find my new pet! Before I left school my friends told me adopting a pet is a very troubling task! This would be the day I adopt my new pet! To continue, my family and I were going to the no-kill animal shelter. On the way there my brother kept screaming that he wanted a fish.
My Trip to Florida It was a cold winter night in Upstate New York. My mom and dad were enjoying a cup of coffee, my sisters were playing video games, and I was editing a few pictures on my computer. My mom brought up the idea of a vacation. She said” We haven’t been on a vacation for a long time”.
THE GREAT LAKES The great lakes are comprised of 5 different fresh water lakes, Superior, Huron, Michigan, Ontario, and Erie. The lakes are situated along the US-Canadian border, touching Ontario in Canada and Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Ohio Pennsylvania, Indiana and New York in the United States. Roughly 34 million people in Canada and the United States live in the great lakes basin, and also 35 000 plants and animals, over 170 of those being fish, inhabit the great lakes (Zimmermann). This significantly large water body holds an estimate of 6 quadrillion gallons of water.
The reason for that is because once you gain a new shell, there are few remnants of your old one. I now know what excellence feels like. Up on that stage receiving my merit for years of hardships - that is excellence. When hermit crabs have outgrown their shell, they shed it and look for a new one. Sometimes they will go bare before they find their new home.
The best part of all was when a small little fish came and touched Macys leg she jumped up. It was hilarious. Going back to the hotel around 4:00 pm, we were exhausted. So we just hung out and watched tv, going to bed shortly after this. The next morning we woke up and we were headed on our way to the longest street in the United States, Duval street.
By the end of April, my plane ticket for the way home was bought, and we were making plans. I had never been away from home, but I figured I could do it. I was nervous, but I was so excited to see those two again. Trina and I had a countdown, and would send pictures to each other as the final day got closer and
Alright, most of you don’t know me so you wouldn’t know that I’m what you call a church girl. So any church activities, events, programs, I’m probably going to be there. So I was involved in this particular ministry where our founder, Mrs. Christie, took us to the beach every summer. As usual this particular trip started pretty good. Everyone was in good spirits just chillin and enjoying ourselves and we always stayed in a nice hotel with nice rooms.
The line up to the counter was fairly short but since we were so excited it felt like an I’m-going-to-die-before-I-get-up-there kind of line. We finally got up to the counter, she was so nice asking where we were from and the most asked question of all if we were sisters. We got settled in with our room and getting our wristbands so we could swim. When we got up to our room on the second floor we were starving. For dinner that night we decided we would have the hotel’s buffet.
