Their strong, hooked beak tears into food for eating, yet it uses its powerful taloned feet that actually kills the prey by penetrating its flesh. They do not have to eat every day, but if the bird goes too long without food, it may not be able to hunt effectively enough to survive. Unique to North America, Bald Eagles live in coastal and lake areas from Baja California and Florida north to Newfoundland and
Sidewinder Rattlesnake Physiological Evolution Rattlesnakes are a group of venomous snakes found in North and South America. The sidewinder (Crotalus cerastes) is one of 32 different known species of rattlesnake living in the United States. Each species has specific traits and comes in a variety of different sizes and colors. This paper will discuss the physiological evolution of the sidewinder rattlesnake and the traits and features they have evolved to help them survive in the harsh environment the live in. Sidewinders are a nocturnal species of rattlesnake that live in the desert southwest from California to New Mexico and range in size from 6 inches at birth to adults up to 30 inches.
This is because of a controlled climate, lack of predators and a constant source of food. They eat insects, snails, frogs, toads, snakes, bird eggs, carrion, mushrooms, grass roots, berries, melons and watermelons. It is illegal to own a hedgehog as a pet in the UK, because they are considered endangered there. It’s also illegal in some parts of the US and Canada, and breeding licenses are required to own one. In some areas, such as New Zealand and Scotland, they’re considered a pest, killing
Burmese Pythons are dark-colored snakes with many brown blotches bordered in black down the back. The perceived attractiveness of their skin pattern contributes to their popularity with both reptile keepers and the leather industry. The pattern is similar in colour, but different in actual pattern from the African Rock Python (Python sebae), sometimes resulting in confusion of the two species outside of their natural habitats. The African Rock Python can generally be distinguished by its tighter pattern of markings, compared to the Burmese Python, which has bolder patterns, similar to those seen on a giraffe.  In the wild, Burmese pythons grow to 3.7 metres (12 ft) on average, while specimens of more than 4 metres (13 ft) are uncommon.
These lion ﬁsh prey on all different types of animals, such as: crabs, shrimp and smaller ﬁsh; and have very little amount predators giving them the place in the higher levels of the food chain. Since it is so high in the food chain and preys on almost anything, it has managed to survive in the Atlantic Ocean perfectly. In the Atlantic, lion ﬁsh are deﬁned as invasive species, which means, "a non-native organism that has intruded into an area and may have serious detrimental effects on native organisms, the local economy, and human health". sadly many accidents have led to the invasion where the lion ﬁsh has spread all across the Caribbean Sea and up North in places like Rhode Island. It is hypothesized that the origin of the whole problem came from only six lion ﬁsh that were accidentally released from an aquarium to the Atlantic Ocean in 1992 during hurricane Andrew.
LOCATION The first known breeding area for this rat was in the Grassy Key. The range of this animal is near Central Sudan all the way to South Africa (Wiley). The most common place for the Gambian Pouch Rat is in the Florida Keys. The reason this type of rodent are invasive is because a private breeder let them escape, and now they are impossible to eradicate. This pest has taken over the Grassy Key.
two million acres (3,125 square miles). They Stretch from Central Florida all the way to South Florida. Biotic (living) Components ● There are many living components in the everglades. The two most wellknown species that inhabit the Everglades are the American Alligator and the American Crocodile. Both the Crocodile and the Alligator are both on the endangered species list.
The algae covers the sloth’s brown, white or black fur with greenish tinge camouflaging it against predators in the topical forest of Costa Rica. Having four limbs and an extra vertebrate allowing them to turn there head almost 360 degrees. Double the lifespan as a dog, they can live up to 40 years. Sloth’s four part stomach works like wood chipper grinding up tough leaves and
I will tell you how the adapt to their environment and any possible threats harming these animals. The first animal is the Jaguar, The jaguar's present range extends from Southern United States and Mexico across much of Central America and south to Paraguay and northern Argentina. Apart from a known and possibly breeding population in Arizona, the cat has largely been extinct from the United States since the early 20th century. Jaguars live in rain forest, its preferred habitat, they also live in a variety of forested and open terrain. Jaguars are solitary animals who live and hunt alone, except for mating season.
Barn Owls swallow their prey whole and regurgitates black pellets typically about the size of your thumb. The pellets of the nights feeding, which cannot be digested by the Owl, are the bones, fur and hair. Thousands of owl pellets have been analyzed which gives us a lot of information on their diet, according to Barn Owl Trust in UK. In the UK the most frequently taken prey is the field vole which is 40% and 80% of the diet. Field mouse, wood mouse or common shrew, is the second most frequently prey is the brown rat that is when the body weights of the various prey are considered.
