Some species of the frog will bury themselves in the ground, and go through metamorphosis underground, until they turn into adults. Other species go through metamorphosis in the water. South America has many mysteries, and will always have many mysteries. The glass frog will be one of them for a while. Its appearance is part of the mystery, and it mates and lays eggs like any other frog.
My eyes widen in anticipation and surprise, and I truly believe I have never smiled more in my life. Instantaneously, the lemurs are climbing up my legs in search of food. In this moment, I noticed things I never have before. Lemurs are extremely lightweight; I could barely feel them on my legs. They have extremely sharp teeth and their fingers reminded me of spider legs, for they were hairy and thin, exactly like a tarantula.
The diet of a viperfish consist of shrimp, hermit crabs, anchovies, mackerel, and other small fish they can feast on. They can go days without food because of their very low basal metabolism rate. They also have a large stomach that allows them to store food when it is needed. When they see a prey they want they go straight at it and headbutt it and hopefully it would get disoriented and the first vertebra right behind its head acts as a shock absorber and take all the shock from the impact so they don't get a concussion. They have a hinged skull that can be rotated when they have a large prey impaled in their teeth.
Lobster is one of the most delightful feasts that exist. However, do people know the fact about the lobster that people cook also feel the pain like a human? Through this essay "Consider the Lobster" by David Foster Wallace, he verbosely examines this topic using the rhetorical strategies. Wallace uses both ethical and logical illustration of lobsters that are embodied in the passage, he trying to assure the readers who are into foods but handled the animal in a wrong way. Moreover, the 56th Maine Lobster Festival (MLF) that held on July 30 through August 3, 2003, represents the evidence of the way lobsters are treated.
Are sharks mindless killers? Think about the word shark, what comes to your mind? To most people it’s the vision of a mindless killing machine that is only out for human blood. Sharks, regardless of what Hollywood portrays them to be, are gentle, curious creatures that are not out to get people. National Geographic states that “Over 375 shark species have been identified, but only about a dozen are considered particularly dangerous.
The blobfish is an exclusively deep sea fish and generally resides in the waters of mainland Australia, a country known for its many weird and wonderful (not to mention terrifying) creatures. While the blobfish doesn’t pose any actual threat to humans, its sagging, drooling face - which actually kind of reminds me of writer and director Woody Allen - is the stuff of nightmares and is difficult to look at for more than a couple of seconds. The Queen Anne’s Revenge
If a sloth wants to get somewhere fast they just drop from a branch into the water and speed their way down to where ever they were headed. Did you know that the sloth has a whole other ecosystem living in it’s fur. The sloth creates algae in it’s fur do to being unhygienic. Then bugs of all sorts live in the fur. These pests feed off of the algae and are protected by their shaggy
Many people know when Greg is fishing for he has this one phrase: "Gotta grab the glowies and hook 'em." The glowies are glow worms, night crawlers or whatever you call them, and you get them and you put them on your hook for bait for the fish. When I go with him, he makes me get the worms. Which was difficult when I was little for I couldn’t get any. Until I turned ten and Greg trusted me with two screw drivers, jumper cables and a car battery.
Provided that sharks have not been fished out of certain areas it is reasonable to assume that their disappearance would be a result of the destruction of a suitable habitat. The fact that shark species are so diverse and inhabit every ocean on the planet makes them key players essential to the ocean environment. Yet despite their importance in the marine food-chain they remain a low conservation priority. For all their evolutionary success and apparent menace, sharks are incredibly fragile, unable to withstand the increased pressures forced on them by the voracious world fishing industries. This is partly due to the fact that sharks are slow growing animals that mature late, live long, and have a low reproduction
After an hour or two of intense searching, every team was called to a small tent to input their findings into the pool of invertebrates. Our groups best find was a couple of brittle stars, other teams found giant hermit crabs, sea slugs, and sea urchins. The most interesting animal was a large red starfish the staff members found previously, which I held. It was a bit larger than both of my hands put together, and was rough to the touch. After holding the starfish, I moved on to other sea creatures, each one more bizarre and attention grabbing than the last.
He ripped the dagger clean out of his flesh and swung it wildly at the ugly, fat man. After some “friendly discussions” between Jag, the Captain and the floor board with an odd Jag shaped dent, Jag would come to “accept” the terms of living on the ship, the S.S. Crestfalls. Time would pass, month would turn into years and Jag slowly grew under the watchful eyes of Lightfang. Though these memories are just a mixed of hard work, getting the living shit kicked out of him and more hard work, there are some fond memories of Lightfang. These came in the form of the stories that Lightfang would tell.
