The big-belly seahorse Hippocampus abdominalis) has the most complex seahorse pregnancy. Camilla Wittington of the University of Sydney analyzed gene expressions (the patterns of genes turned on and off) in the big-belly seahorse during conception, egg development and birth. She found several things in common linking seahorses, reptiles that give live birth and humans. The male seahorse becomes pregnant when the female transfers her eggs into his pouch where they are fertilized. The pouch, similar to a pregnant woman’s belly, has to go through physical changes such as growing bigger to accommodate and protect the eggs.
When newly hatched, the tadpoles climb on the mothers back and are held there safely by a sticky mucus. Some species display unusual parenting habits like this, carrying both eggs and tadpoles on their backs. This "backpacking" is not unique among amphibians and even male poison arrow frogs are exceptional in their care. They are usually the parent who guards the eggs until they hatch. In some cases, varying species of poison dart tree frogs will carry their tadpoles to a small pool of water isolated in a tree hole and the female returns repeatedly to feed the tadpoles “nurse” eggs, which they rely on for survival.
The government should make it illegal to kill Loggerhead Sea Turtles. If we can get enough people to vote for it after we ask the government then we can make it illegal to kill Loggerhead Sea Turtles. People shouldn’t kill or disturb Loggerhead Turtles. We should save all the Loggerhead Turtles in the world and then we can have them as pets. One main reason for Loggerhead Turtle death is because of fishermen nets.
Their weight ranges from 2 oz. to 4 oz. As often seeing in other species the difference in size between male and female individuals is related to the additional energy consumption related to breeding behavior. Evolution Classification Class: Amphibia Anura+Eleutherodactylidae + Eleutherodactylus + Eleutherodactylus coqui Development from larval state to froglets take place inside the egg.
Although the Poison Frog might seem like a menace, its habitat, prey, and toxin can all be adjusted so that the frog that can kill ten men, will seem like a puppy. Poison Dart Frogs live in rainforests near Central and South America. Any type of frog needs their skin to be constantly moist so a place where it rains 80 inches a year is the perfect
I have seen this move probably about ten times and have always enjoyed it, but this is the first time that I really understood and looked at it on a deeper level and saw some of the hidden meanings, stereotypes, and what life was like back then. Dear Reader: I want to convince you that this film is a depiction of how life was for different groups, during the 1920, also known as the Jazz Age. In the movie, Tiana uses Tabasco sauce in her daddy’s gumbo and also in a dish that Mama Odie, the voodoo priestess is making. This hot sauce was very famous and went well with a lot of Cajun cuisine back then.
She was eventually promoted to chief of pathology for USAMRIID (US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases) after convincing her worried husband that she was smart enough to deal with these deadly Biosafety Level 4
Identification and Life Cycle The appearance of bed bugs changes depending upon their age. After insemination, female bed bugs lay seven to 10 eggs after every blood meal they consume. These eggs are about 1 millimeter in length, making them the size of a pinhead. Females lay their eggs wherever they happen to be, so you may find them anywhere in your bedroom or other affected areas. When the eggs are about five days old
Sea stars, or starfish, http://www.care2.com/causes/how-one-congressman-is-bringing-hope-to-dying-starfish.html are famous for their healing powers (they can regrow their own amputated limbs!) and their central disc. Today, they're at the center of "the largest wildlife die-off ever recorded" -- some populations have disappeared by 95 percent -- http://phys.org/news/2015-12-climate-american-starfish.html and scientists are racing to save them. It's a Starfish Catastrophe American scientists recently met in Seattle, reports King 5 News, http://www.king5.com/story/tech/science/environment/2016/01/19/sea-star-die-off-worst-ever-recorded/79016818/ to discuss this truly catastrophic event where millions of sea stars have died. We should all be concerned about this historic die-off.
After learning about how smart our relatives are they can't just go away. They are dying from horrific diseases and viruses they have no protection against. On the brighter side, steps can be taken to help save the chimpanzee. Sadly if we don't save Chimpanzees by the time the next generation are teens we will be seeing movies about the extinct Chimpanzee.
These fish are somewhat social and are usually found in pairs or in small groups (10 to 12 members) of several different surgeonfish and tang (Bradford 2016). Flagtail Surgeons congregate in breeding groups, where females expel their eggs into the water above the coral, and the males expel sperm, and fertilization occurs externally (Thurston 2011). After spawning the adults swim off, never caring for their offspring. Flagtail Surgeonfish conservation status is listed as least concern (IUCN 2012).
Cane toads The cane toad, also known as the giant neotropical toad or marine toad, is a large, land based toad which is native to South and Middle America, but has been introduced to various islands throughout Oceania and the Caribbean, as well as northern Australia. Cane toads were introduced to Australia as a solution to cane beetles eating all the sugar cane crops. Body 1
