WATER COLLECTION STRATEGIES AND ANIMALS
Transcript of WATER COLLECTION STRATEGIES AND ANIMALS
WATER IS AN EXTREME PART OF EXISTENCE,FUELING EVERYTHING.
LETS LOOK INSIDE THE STRATEGIES OF four ANIMALS AND PLANTS,oh, also insects WHO USE THEIR WATER COLLECTION SKILLS,AND HOW THEY USE THAT TO SURVIVE.
i'd like to end this now, instead, i have to compare them all.
and what better way to compare, then
a four way venn diagram.
the green tree frog.
Australian green tree frogs are able to hop around the deserts of northern Australia during the dry season without dehydrating.
how this happens is The frogs hop up from cool night air to a warm burrow, 'fogging up' like a pair of glasses.
but last, and certainly not least........
a bromeliad is a tropical plant in the pineapple species. (the species called Bromeliaceae). They have an unusual and amazing way of getting water and food. Their long, curved leaves overlay at the bottom, making a strong little bowl - a perfect water tank! The leaves act as a channel to collect rain, and the tank holds the water. some of The largest bromeliads hold up to around two gallons of water.
Many animals drink from the bromeliad water tanks. And many others actually live in the water held by bromeliads. Scientists have found more than 250 different animal species in the tanks of bromeliads, including frogs and tadpoles, insects and insect larvae, spiders, and worms.
african ELEPHANTS :)
Elephants are habitants of areas where the baobab tree grows and they are able to use this tree as a source of water. The animals shove the trees with their heads or shred at them with their tusks, breaking the trees wide open. Inside the trunk of each of these trees, is a small pool of water, which the elephant quickly gulps down. How many trees it has to break open depends on the weather conditions, the size of the trees and how much water is stored in each one.
HELLO,6G, TODAY I AM GOING TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT ELEPHANT'S,BROMELIAD'S,stenocara beetle's AND green tree FROG'S WATER COLLECTION STRATEGIES...PLEASE ENJOY :)
now that you know what they are, lets compare...
Desert-enhabiting animals often get creative in their exploration for water, multiple scientific experiments had suggested that some species of lizards, spiders and frogs could absorb water from the air by moving from the cool outdoors to a warm, humid burrow, where droplets would condense on their skin.
The finding suggested that the frogs were, in fact, drinking in condensed water through their skin.
the stenocara beetle
The Stenocara beetle is an outstanding water collector. The tiny black bug lives in a harsh, dry desert environment and is able to survive, thanks to the unique design of its shell. The Stenocara's back is overlayed in small, smooth bumps that provide as collection points for condensed water. The whole shell is covered in a slick, Teflon-like wax and is an arroyo so that condensed water from morning fog is funneled into the beetle's mouth.
