Have a wonderful weekend!


Hi everybody. I'm sorry I wasn't at school today. I hope you enjoyed the Planet Earth DVD . I think it's some of the most amazing footage of our world.

Adaptations are characteristics that an organism has that allow it to survive in it's environment. For example, the leopard can climb trees so that they can pounce on prey from above and sleep safely in it's branches.

Please comment on something interesting from the docementary today (linked). I would especially be interested in hearing about adaptations that you noticed in the living organisms discussed in the film.

Wolverines eat massive amounts of food, more than any other animal in one sitting. After he eats enough he stores the remains for later.

sacadas only live for 24 hours until they die again. it takes 17 years for them to hatch.

something i found interesting was that the amur leopard is very seldom seen on camera.

i think it was very interesting how that almost every animal eats the sacadas when they finily come out after 17 years.and that the trees in the most commoon home for every animal.

The lemurs drink the nectar from the foot long flowers, the lemurs also eat the bug that pollinates the flower. The foot long flower can open in just a minute.

I was fascinated by how long the amoor leopard keeps her cub considering how hard it is to survive. It must be very important to the mother that she teach her cub EVERYTHING.

Something I thought was interesting is that the amoor leopard during the winter had to become a scavenger because she needed to feed her cub and there was no food for her to hunt.

I agree it is the most amazing footage. The thing that stood out to me was all the life in the poles. The forest was huge. I couldn't believe it. This is a magnificent planet.
