At any given time, a manatee typically has no more than six teeth in each jaw of its mouth. Manatees have a simple stomach, but a large cecum, in which they can digest tough plant matter. In general, their intestines have a typical length of about 45 meters, which is unusually long for animals of their size. Manatees are the only animal known to have a vascularized cornea. On the average, an adult manatee measures up to 4.0 meters long, and weigh as much as 590 kilograms with recorded measures beyond the mentioned values; females that tend to be larger and heavier have two teats, one under each flipper.
Description The Hammerhead shark is a long, odd looking animal. on average, they 11.5 feet long, and weigh about 1,000 pounds. The odd shaped head they have is called a cephalofoil, and it allows for 360o vision. The Hammerhead shark has very different physical features from most other sharks. Habitat The Hammerhead shark can be found throughout various places globally, and usually lives in warm tropical and coastal waters along continental shelves.
Darwin evolutionary theory has changed the scientific explanations about how organisms can adapt to extreme environments and survive. Through scientific experiments and analysis, scientists learn what kinds of adaptations allow a specific organism to survive and thrive in an extreme environment. These adaptations can be categorized into chemical functions and structural anatomy. These adaptations are present in deep-sea creatures and are what allows them to survive in extreme environments. Giant Squid, a database, and Deep-Sea Vents, an informational article by Amy Bliss, describe the anatomical adaptations that allow giant squids and yeti crabs to survive in extreme environments.
The Hawaiian Day Octopus is part of the mollusk family, and are closely related to squid, cuttlefish, and the Nautilus. They don’t have shells, but compensate with their extremely intelligent and ability to adjust color immediately to match their surroundings. When they are startled or leave a certain area, they release an ink cloud. The objective of this ink cloud is to distract possible predators, (*kind of like in Mario Kart when your screen gets inked). They can also squeeze themselves into tiny cracks.
They possess blunt heads with tricuspid teeth that are flattened laterally, enable them to graze on marine algae (Darwin, 1839). Besides, long and sharp claws with a powerful ability to grip onto the lava (Carpenter, 1966).Their tails are flattened compared with others iguanids and they successfully adapted for efficient swimming (Tracy and Christian, 1985).Black coloration and circulatory heat shunts help to maintain preferred body temperature during foraging bouts in the cold sea water. Genetic stress in marine iguana occurs when there is endocrine-immune interactions across species which make it difficult to discern consistent patterns. Relationship between baseline and stress –induced levels of sex and adrenal steroid hormones and standard Eco immunological metrics in both female and male Galapagos marine iguanas. A significant association between adrenal activity and immunity is found, whereby greater corticosterone responses to stress had lower basal and stress-induced immunity for example bactericidal
Adult octopuses usually weigh 15 kgms and an arm span of 4.5 feets. The smallest species recognized is Octopus wolfi with a size around 2.5 cm and weighs less than 1 gm. They are the most evolved among cephalopod class. Cephalopod literally means head-footed. Octopus is bilaterally symmetrical
They eat bamboo with their strong jaws and flat teeth while holding it with their paws and wrists. Bamboo makes up 99% percent of the Pandas diet. Although, their digestive system is a holdover, from when they ate meat, not plants. The pandas intestine, where digestion takes place, is only five to seven times its body length. As a result, the panda can digest only
Alina Swanson Period 2 Mrs. Broad September 30, 2016 Isopod Lab Introduction: This lab is used to see if and how many of the Isopods like the light or the dark. Isopods also known as pill-bugs, roll into a ball when felt threatened. Isopods are very similar in body types as lobster, crabs, and shrimp. They all have compound eyes and antennae, but still sometimes do not always look alike. Isopods can be as long as 500 millimeters and can live as long as 4 years.
What is in a slogan? A slogan has the power to convince people of things, whether it be in a business setting to buy a particular product, or in a political setting to convince people of a unique idea. Slogans can be very powerful in societies, as shown in George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four. Big Brother, the main leader of Oceania, creates slogans in order to manipulate the inhabitants of the superstate into conforming to particular standards. These slogans double as paradoxical phrases, which seem absurd and ridiculous at first, but reveal hidden truths.
The three brain theory is a theory created in order to realize why we do the things we do, even though they often seem completely illogical at times. The premise of the theory is that human brains have not simply evolved to the next level from our animal ancestors, but instead simply built more evolved brains on top of each other. The first brain is the physical brain, this is essentially the fight or flight response found in everything from ants to lizards to humans, basically your most basic core survival mechanisms: surviving and replicating. The second brain is the emotional brain, it is found in most mammals and allows us to emotionally connect to things and do more than simply having fight or flight responses. The emotional brain is found in everything from cats and dogs to
