Transcript of PLATYPUS

by olivia lutterman THE PLATYPUS THE RAINFOREST RAINFORESTS ARE FORESTS THAT HAVE 200-400 INCHES OF RAIN YEARLY AND HAVE EXTREMELY DIVERSE WILDLIFE. THE TEMPERATURE IS 70-85 DEGREES FARENHIEGHT.THEY ARE GENERALLY CLOSER TO THE EQUATOR WHERE THE CLIMATE IS WARM. IT ALSO HAS MANY RIVERS, WHICH ARE THE HOME TO THE PLATYPUS. ADAPTATIONS OF THE PLATYPUS 1) THE PLATYPUS GROWS THICK, BROWN FUR, WHICH TRAPS AN INSULATING LAYER OF AIR NEXT TO THE SKIN. 2) THE PLATYPUS HAS STRONG CLAWS TO GRIP AND BURROW ON LAND. WITHOUT THESE, IT WOULD BE NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR THE PLATYPUS TO WALK ON LAND. The platypus is found in most rainforests of Australia and southern Asia, and can also be found in some places in Africa. 3) the platypus has webbed feet to swim faster. this adaptation is good in water, but also makes it harder for it to walk on land endangered animals jaguar

We are trying to improve the population by breeding the harpy eagles in their natural habitat. The harpy eagle symbiosis The relationship between the capuchin monkeys and flowering trees is an example of mutualism. When the capuchin monkey feeds on nectar it gets pollen on its face - which it eventually transfers to other flowers in the process of feeding on them. In this way, the trees provide the capuchin species with food, while the capuchin monkey pollenates flowers of this tree. a relationship between army ants and ant birds is an example of commensalism. the ants eat food and the antbirds follow and eat the leftovers of the ants. in this way the birds are benefited by the ants but the ants are unaffected. competition cooperation there is competition between all trees in the rainforest for light and nutrients. the platypus is a solitary animal, but will share small bodies of water. the platypus is the only mammal to lay eggs Why the platypus is unique The platypus has the characteristics of three animals. 1)the webbed feet of an otter 2) the bill of a duck 3) the tail of a beaver A male platypus has a venomous spike on the back of its foot, being one of few mammals to be venomous rainforest food web vines insects larvae fruit flowers possums frog platypus crocodile snakes
