With his great sense of awareness, the agile nature of the mongoose outwits both snakes. The snakes decide that because Rikki is too strong, they would kill the family that adopted him instead of Rikki. ‘When the house is emptied of people’, said Nagaina to her husband, ‘he will have to go away and the garden will be our own again’(17). As Nag sneaks into the family bathroom, the cobra decides to wait until morning to kill the father. Rikki never gives Nag the chance and attacks him immediately.
For rapid swimming and for diving, they swim similarly to other otters, using up-and-down undulations of the body. Sea otters can reach terrifying speeds of 0.9 mph on the surface and 5.6 mph under water. The feral Alaskan sea otter commonly ransack the depths of 131 feet or more, in search of more prey, while the deadly California sea otter is seldom found in water deeper than 66 feet. Sea otters remain submerged for about 52 to 90 seconds; the longest recorded dive was 4 minutes, 25 seconds. Such extended dives are probably a response to an even more brutish animal or event.
But currently are up to 73 million sharks are finned alive every year. As a result of these huge numbers of victims, shark species are considered to be in danger of extinction. Sharks can take up to seven years to reach maturity and only have about one or two “babies” per year, unlike fish, who can lay millions of eggs at a time. This is the biggest reason why sharks are becoming extinct. The practice of shark finning is inhumane; we should never treat mammals in such a cruel manner.
In other words, rainbow trout and steelhead trout are the same species. The fish is sometimes called a salmon trout. Several other fish in the salmonid family are called trout, some are anadromous like salmon, whereas others are resident in freshwater only. Rainbow trout are predators with a varied diet, and will eat nearly anything they can grab. Their image as a selective eater is only a legend.
This paper will discuss these 5 traits. THE VENOM Rattlesnake venom is produced and stored in venom glands on each side of the animals head. The size of these glands defines the shape of the rattlesnake’s head and gives its head that classic arrowhead shape most people recognize. With very few exceptions rattlesnakes venom is a hemotoxin. This type of toxin attacks and destroys red blood cells and does not allow the blood to clot normally.
The Medusa was a Gorgan, a terrifying female creature who had hair of living, venomous snakes, and a horrifying gaze that turned those who looked into it to stone. After slaying the women-beast, he took his mother back to her native Argos, he threw a discus that accidentally killed his grandfather, thus fulfilling the prophecy.  Around 1554 C.E, Cosimo I de' Medici (June 12, 1519 – April 21, 1574), the Grand Duke of Tuscany employed Benvenuto Cellini to create a statue that was imaginative, impressive, and would remind people of himself.  Whether the statue actually is a rendering depicting Cosimo is unknown and unlikely but what is known is that it depicts the result of the fight betweentwo people, Perseus the victor, presenting the head to the gods, and Medusa, her headless body under his feet and her head in his hand. Perseus, with his winged sandals and hat given to him by the god Hermes stands about eighteen feet tall and is made of cast bronze.
They are eaten by Sperm Whales, Southern Elephant Seals and Colossal Squid. Globally, almost 80% of the toothfish species sold on the world market is illegal. Australian fisheries are some of the largest legal fisheries around the world. Macquarie Island Toothfish Fishery: located off of Tasmania, began in 1994 when the fishery was granted with its permit. It is an aquaculture fishery harvesting for commercial fishing.
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
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.
The guppy generally lives three to five years and they are extremely colorful, with patterns found on their fins. The guppy has many natural predators because of their small size but mainly because of their bright colors and fins often attract unwanted attention. Some of the guppies predators are has the Rivulus, Acara, and Cichlid fishes. The guppy is an omnivorous animal and eats a wide range of organic matter that is available in the water. The guppy mainly feeds on algae and brine shrimp, and often eat particles of food from the water that have been left by a larger fish.
