It was also determined that prehensile tailed platyrrhines had more pronounced and convex articular surface curvatures. Greater contour curvatures on intervertebral articular surfaces are associated with an increased range of flexibility and mobility of the caudal vertebrae, benefiting prehensile primates that use their tails in a variety of complex movements. Hence, through analyses of the morphology of caudal vertebrae, specifically their articular surface area and curvature, it was concluded prehensile and non-prehensile tails could be distinguished according to these structural features. Both of these characteristics relate to effective use of the tail during locomotion. This article is useful towards my GEM as it describes differences in bone structure of the tails of prehensile and non-prehensile primates, and explains the reasons that certain variations confer advantages to prehensile tail
• The longer neck Giraffe is more likely to pass on that particular gene to its offspring. meaning that they would also have a longer neck, meaning that they would survive longer. • Over a longer period of time all Giraffes would have really long necks meaning that they would live longer but there is also some small Giraffes.
These are really cool dinosaurs because they are quick and stand upright and can be pretty tall. In the movie they look horrifying and like creatures that can cut skin just by rubbing their back against you, and can eat you alive with one bite. Dinosaurs such as the “Zhenyuanlong” and the velociraptor are some of the closest relatives to birds. They are very fast, very smart for their species, and also feathered. This discovery of the new dinosaur is similar to birds however the main different to spot out is
Sloths are a medium-sized mammal. There are two types of sloth the two-toed sloth and the three-toed sloth, they are classified into six different species. Although they 're largely similar, two-toed sloths are slightly faster, larger and have a more varied diet compared to the three-toed variety. All living sloths have in fact three toes; the "two-toed" sloths, however, have only two fingers. They are weird looking characterized by slow movement in the trees.
The advantages of being multicellular is they can mostly adapt to a wide variety of environments, they grow very large relative to their size when they were born, they can also work more because they have very specialized tissues for a specific function, and lastly they live longer than unicellular organisms. But since they can do more work they need more energy to do a wide variety of things, and if one organ fails the whole organism can die. While the advantages of unicellular organisms is that they are easier and quicker to adapt to changes in the environment due to their relative small size, and they also reproduce faster. But the disadvantages of being unicellular is that they cannot grow very large, they don’t live as long as multicellular organisms because they have only one cell to do all work, they usually live in water for if they did not they will dry up quickly and must live in a food rich environment, and lastly they must take everything they need through their cell
The speed of the ball is also largely impacted by the placing of the foot of the kicking leg explained that the speed of the ball increased when the contact surface used to kick the ball was closer to the centre of the foot of the kicking leg because the force resulted in an average highest speed of the ball. In the instep kick, the natural position of the body and foot allows for a high speed of the foot of the kicking leg and a high speed of the ball, unlike some other kicking
As stated later, they also use their large flight muscles to produce thrust that allows them easier passage. Another very important strategy that large winged animals use is the soaring one. Their large bodies make it hard for them to stay lifted therefore, they would use the only efficient possibility available and start to float across the fluid. Without this fundamental strategy, the bird would continuously flap its wings and burn lots of
The advantages of LISS are practical for real life. If a person is into adventure hobbies such as rowing, cycling, or hiking, cardiovascular endurance is important. 3. Maintain Muscle Mass – HIIT training is generally better for maintaining lean muscle. It basically gives a stressor on the muscles which is somewhat the same as weightlifting.
The Gibbon has very long arms so it can climb trees effortlessly and run up to 35 miles an hour. The way the Gibbon swings is called “Brachiation” which saves energy. It also has a small fur coat all around its body except its face. Its fur comes in a few different colors like white, black, and brown. Habitat The White Handed Gibbon can be found in southeastern Asian rainforests, such as Thailand, Malaysia, Myanmar, Indonesia, and Laos.
The bullets used now are narrower at the tip and that causes them to be more accurate in the air and they travel further in distance. “Minie Balls” were also harder to load into the muskets. You had to go through several steps to get the gun
The bigger it is, the more spring it has, thus the more power it can provide. The length of a tennis racquet can also affect a racquets power. The longer the racquet the more leverage a player has when swinging, which allows the player to have more power.
Agility can be divided into two components, quickness and change of direction. Agility is the ability to change the direction of your body very quickly without losing your balance and losing control of the ball. Having great agility can improve your athletic quickness. Athletic quickness requires that you have the balance to keep your body in control and cause you to respond to plays on the field quicker, which can ultimately give you an edge over your competitors. It enables you to not only have better control over your body, but also better control over the ball so that your opponent can’t take the ball away from you.
