Hookworm lives in the small intestine of hosts such as humans, cats and dogs, where it is able to mate and mature. Ancylostoma duodenale is abundant throughout the world like Europe, North Africa, India, china, Southeast Asia, Caribbean, South America, and some part of the United State. Hookworm is a small cylindrical worm, they are greyish white in color. The size of the males are 8 mm to 11 mm long. While, the females are 10 mm to 13 mm long.
It will roll into a ball so that its stiff spines are protecting itself. The hedgehog has very poor eyesight. This was surprising for me because it would need could eyesight to be active at night. Instead of its eyes, they use their ears and sense of smell. Hedgehogs are immune to toxins so they are able to eat beetles, wasps, and some venomous
This wasp has two pairs of wings and an ovipositor on the female. The wings of the trichogramma differ from the typical membranous winged moth, as the trichogramma wings are short with long fringy hairs. Regardless of its small size, this parasitic wasp is a professional destroyer of the eggs of over 200 species of leaf-eating moths and butterflies. During the course of the female’s 10-day life, she seeks out potential host eggs, to lay her own eggs in, by picking up their scent. Once a suitable host egg is found, she measures the egg with her antennae to determine how many eggs of her own she can lie inside.
Grab two dissecting pins and place them one on each end of the earthworm. After the earthworm is well placed in the tray, grab the scalpel and start opening the worm carefully, do not press too much because then the intestines will open too. Once it’s fully opened, we will use the dissecting pins and the dissecting probe. With the dissecting probe we keep on opening the body to fully see the earthworm from the inside. Grab the pin and place them one on each side, as much as you want to see the whole earthworm’s insides.
Baby garter snakes shed their first skin almost immediately, and will begin eating soon after. Garter snakes just require a 10 gallon (38 liter) terrarium. The first shedding is very fine and often disintegrates in minutes under the slithering masses of new snakes. Feeding baby garter snakes can be tricky; earth worms (not compost worms), night crawlers (called dew worms in Canada), silversides (fish), or cut up pieces of pinky mice (thawed fully and waved before the snake on a pair of tongs or hemostats to avoid nipping fingers) will entice appetites.  Up to 10 days may pass before a baby
They eat small insects and the mechanism that controls the leaf closing prevents it closing by any small thing such as a rain drop from closing the leaf. The morphology or structure of the plant is complex. There is the leaf which is the actual trapping mechanism of the venus flytrap. It is triggered by the trigger hairs which send a signal when there are two touches within 2 to 20 seconds. The stems form a wheel which goes round in a circle like a bicycle wheel.
It is an invertebrate animal belonging to the arachnid family, to the class of the arthropods. There are about 8 to 10 species. Its bite can paralyze, even kill humans! The Black widow spider female is about 15 mm, the male is smaller only about 7 mm. It has two eyes above the mouth and two hooks where it injects its venom.
The case described benefits of the new drug as a low-cost, safe, and simple cure for river blindness. The current residents suffering from this parasite did not have funds to afford alternate treatments like expensive hospital visits or other drug options that are required for a cure. As reported in the reading, the condition is caused by a worm that is passed through the bite of a black fly along the tropical areas of Africa and Latin America. The worm then burrows under the skin and continues to grow up to a length of two feet. As the worm reproduces, it releases millions of offspring that slowly wriggle underneath the skin until invading the eyes, eventually causing blindness.
They release venom from groves in their teeth when they latch on the prey. Gilas latch on to their prey and inject venom to kill their prey into their open wound. It is interesting to know that no Gila monster has ever killed a human being. Gilas primarily feed on eggs and newborn animals.When people throw trash in the desert, the Gila monster might eat it. Gilas may spend more than 95% of their lives underground because they can go long without food.
In the book it says,“Most parasites live in more than one kind of animal, but they’re all trying to reach their ﬁnal host, the ultimate vector”(60). Parasites can kill their host but once their host is dead they die along with it in Peeps it says,“One thing about parasites—they’re great at living inside other organisms, but once they hit the outside world, they’re not so tough.”(109) In some ways the parasite situation form the book could be true only some aspects could. The unusual strength, night vision, heightened senses, and an afﬁnity with rats cannot be a realistic beneﬁt form a sexual transmitted parasite. Parasites
