In Dalhousie springs, there is a large amount of living animals. This includes; reptiles, birds, mammals and plants. Many animals that live in this area would have adapted so they could survive. One of these animals would be the Spotted Grass Frog. The Spotted Grass Frog has adapted to the desert. These desert adapted frogs usually emerge during warm wet nights to feed. The Bilby has adapted too. With their big ears and sharp claws. The large ears have several purposes. The main reason for having large ears is for something called “thermo regulation” (to cool the bilby). Blood flows quickly into the thin tissue around the Bilby 's ears, preventing them from getting too hot during the day and from losing body heat quickly at night.
In The Day of the triffids we can see how exploitation occurs in many instances throughout the book. At the beginning we can see how capitalism has worked in exploiting the triffid plant through the farming of “Triffids on a large scale, in order to extract valuable oils and juices to press highly nutritious oil cake for stock feeding. Consequently, triffids moved into the realm of big business overnight.” (Wyndham)This demonstrates how capitalism has just created a bigger problem how it exploits and does not care what the consequences might be, all capitalism has ambition for is profit. “Every year pushing the northern limit of growing quick crops on what had historically been simply tundra or barren land. Every season, too, stretches of desert
The world is a wondrous place. From Amazonian Brown-Throated Sloth to the Saguaro Cactus of the Sonoran desert, there is an existential natural beauty that poets have aspired to capture in words and artists since the beginning of time tried to render it in paint.

Though that is justified but what is usually forgotten are the wondrous desert plants. Their beauty is accentuated by their incalculable and varied use in these regions. Here are some of the most beautiful to behold desert plants which are extremely common to the aridest and dried regions of the earth.

Exotic and rare monkeys like the finger monkeys should be illegal in all the states of the U.S because they are expensive, hard to take care of, and a time consuming animal to take care of. Firstly, finger monkeys are legal in some states in the U.S but it would be better if they weren’t legal in the U.S because these monkeys are hard to take care of. Secondly, finger monkeys shouldn’t be legal because most beginning owners would probably buy one just for fun if they had a lot of money but when the monkey starts acting crazy, most people wouldn’t want it anymore and sell it. These people apparently don’t know lots about this monkey and if you take care of it correctly, it would obviously die. These monkeys aren’t really so common that you
