It’s scientific name is Heloderma suspectum. The gila monster can be up to two feet (0.6 meters) and a maximum weight exceeding five pounds (2.3 kilograms They can be identified by their beautiful and color body which is black marked with pink, orange, and yellow spots. Usually their face is totally black. They are known as beaded lizards because they have small scales across their backs that look like tiny beads. Gila monsters are found in the Mojave, Sonoran, and Chihuahuan deserts of the southwestern US and northwestern Mexico.
Coatis are considered carnivores by most scientists, though they eat vegetation and carrion (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carrion) as well, which would make them omnivores. Primarily omnivores, coatis usually look for fruit. Coatis eat palms, eggs, beetles, scorpions, centipedes, spiders, termites, lizards, small mammals, and rodents. The predators of the coati are other carnivores. Enemies include jaguarondis, foxes, dogs, ocelots, and jaguars.
It has several teeth but only the back two can inject venom, which is used to subdue and kill prey but is not considered to be dangerous to an adult human. The brown tree snake is native to Australia, several islands in northwestern Melanesia, and is the most common breed of snakes in Papua New Guinea. They average about 3 – 6 feet in length but have been recorded at lengths up to and exceeding 10 feet. Their bodies are long and slender which allows them to climb easily and to squeeze through narrow gaps. They vary in color depending on habitat but can range from light brown to yellow-green to beige with red splotches.
Some species have "saddles" of light brown or golden.fur across their shoulders and backs. They are found in many rainforests in Central and South America. In Howler monkeys sexual maturity is achieved at five years by males, and at 3 to 4 years by females. But often the young animals lack the social maturity to be allowed to mate for several more years. Gestation is about 180 to 194 days and sing births are usual.
This reflects the fact that amphibians are a large part of their diet. Garter snakes, like all snakes, are carnivorous. Their diets consist of almost any creature they are capable of overpowering: slugs, earthworms, leeches, lizards, amphibians, ants, crickets, frog eggs, toads, minnows, and rodents. When living near water, they will eat other aquatic animals. The ribbon snake (Thamnophis sauritus) in particular favors frogs (including tadpoles), readily eating them despite their strong chemical defenses.
For instance the frog and toad both have bulging eyes; however, the frogs’ eyes are slightly bigger than the toads. As you read on you will learn the differences and similarities between the frog and toad. There are 2000 known species of the frog compared to the 300 kinds of toads. A frog is a small, slim, four legged amphibian with smooth skin and long powerful hind legs with webbed feet. The biggest frog is the Giant frog, sometimes called “Goliath Frog,” in West Africa.
Since that time, lemurs have evolved to cope with an extremely seasonal environment and their adaptations give them a level of diversity that rivals that of all other primate groups. Until shortly after humans arrived on he island around 2,000 years ago, there were lemurs as large as a male gorilla. Today, there are nearly 100 species of lemurs, and most of those species have been discovered or promoted to full species status since the 1990s; however, lemur taxonomic classificationis controversial and depends on which species concept is used. Even the higher-level taxonomy is disputed, with some experts preferring to place most lemurs within the infraorder Lemuriformes, while others prefer Lemuriformes to contain all living strepsirrhines, placing all lemurs in superfamily Lemuroidea and all lorises andgalagos in superfamily Lorisoidea. Ranging in size from 30 g (1.1 oz) to 9 kg (20 lb), lemurs share many common, basal primate traits, such as divergent digits on their hands and feet and nails instead of claws (in most species).
Newborn narwhals are gray-brown; the white spots come with age. At birth they are about 5 feet long and 180 pounds. Male narwhals can reach up to sixteen feet long, not including the “horn” which is eight to nine feet long, and weigh around 3,500 pounds. Females are around thirteen feet long, and generally don’t have tusks, though some females can grow small ones, but they aren’t as prominent as a males. They weigh around 2000-2,800 pounds.
(French, 1980) There have been no fossil records show up of this species but there is a report of 51 elements being found from 27 different species in a deposit found in Illinois. These elements were traced back to 10,000 to 1,000 B.C. (French, 1980) The Sorex longirostris has been found in many different types of habitat. It is believed that the most preferred
When a baby platypus hatches, it is both blind and hairless. Both male and female baby platypuses are hatched with spurs on their hind legs. However, the female platypuses shed its spurs and do not grow any more. The baby then spends about 4 months growing in the burrow. "Duck-Billed Platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus)."
