Museum Curator
The warm blooded Nightingale is a very interesting bird. It is 15 to16.5 cm long, plain brown on the top, has a reddish tail, a white breast and the male and females look the same. They lay eggs around May and females lay five eggs at a time. Also the males stop singing at night until the females lay their eggs. They breathe through their lungs and feed on insect larvae, worms, strawberries and spiders. Some of their adaptations are because of their colour they camouflage into the trees. They migrate in the winter to get to right the climate so they can live. They sing really loud to drive off predators from their territory and it also has a frog like distress call.
The Axolotl is an unusual cold blooded amphibian. It has a wide head, lidless eyes, undeveloped limbs, long thin fingers and toes, barley visible teeth, feathery gills and come in four different colours; two are mutant, two are normal. The two normal are brown with spots and the other is black. The mutant colours are pale pink with black eyes and albino(gold tan or pale pink) with pink eyes. Something funny is that they breathe through gills but they have lungs. Some other things that are cool about the Axolotl are their adaptations. One of them is that they regenerate lost limbs. Another is that when they are in shallow water for a long time they lose their gills and use their lungs on land! They lay eggs during their larval stage when their still juveniles. They are carnivores. They eat worms, insects,small fish and almost whatever can fit in their mouth because their teeth grip not chew.
Atlas moth
The Atlas Moth is a arthropod. They are covered in hair. They are maroon in colour and their length is short compared to their wings. The males are smaller than females. Also they have a meta thorax. The meta thorax is the back section of the moth that holds the hind wings. Something weird about them is that they do not eat because there mouth is undeveloped so they live off their energy reserve they got when they were caterpillars. To reproduce the females let off a scent called pheromones. A scent which the males can pick up from 4.8km away. The females lay 80-160 eggs at a time! They have many cool adaptations like that they make predators not want to attack them because the top of their wing looks like a snake! That is called mimicry. Another adaptation is that the males have larger bushier antenna so that they can pick up the scent of pheromones. Another thing is to protect their eggs they lay their them on the underside of leaves so predators won't find them. They are cold blooded but have to warm up to fly. They have a weird way of breathing. They have tiny holes in the side of their body called spiracles witch brings oxygen to a tube called a trachea witch brings oxygen to the tissue in its body.

Five Kingdoms

The Animal Kingdom is the
kingdom that I will be writing
about. The Animal Kingdom
consists of vertebrates and
invertebrates. I will be writing about three of each. The vertebrates I studied are the Axolotl, Nightingale and Mountain Tapir. And the invertebrates I studied are the Jellyfish, Atlas Moth and Nautilus.
Invertebrate means having no backbone
Vertebrate means having a backbone
The Protist Kingdom is the
kingdom of organisms made
up of single or multiple cells
which contain a nucleus(the
middle and most important
part of objects).
The Fungi
Kingdom is the
kingdom of
fungus like
and mold.

Mountain Tapir
The warm blooded Mountain Tapir is a mammal. As a baby it is reddish brown with white stripes and as a adult it is dark brown and has pale white flecks of fur embedded amongst the brown fur. It becomes noticeably paler on its underside and cheeks. They also have a white band of hair around their mouth. Something weird is they are born with blue eyes but they change to brown over time! The adults are 1.8m long and 0.75-1m in height. They have a small stubby tail, 4 toes on each front foot and 3 on each back. They have many adaptations, for instance they are born ready to walk. Also the colour of babies camouflages them. Another adaptation is, their body is made for weaving through the forest. Because of this their eyes are deep set so they don't get poked by branches. They can swim and their flexible nose can be used as a snorkel. Mountain Tapirs give birth to live babies and the babies stay in gestation for 390 days. They give birth to 1 baby at a time and are able to produce a baby every 18 months. They breathe through lungs. They are vegetarians and eat low hanging fruit buds twigs leaves and aquatic plants.
I hope you liked it!
Jellyfish are a very interesting species. They have a sac shaped body with long tentacles covering their mouth. The top is called a bell. I found something weird about them, they are not hot or cold blooded they do not have blood because they doesn't have a circulatory system! They breathe by absorbing oxygen from water. They eat and void out of the same hole in the top of the jellyfish. They use their tentacles to to catch their prey and eat crustaceans (shellfish), plankton, small fish, and other jellyfish and that makes them carnivores. Jellyfish lay eggs and their reproduction is very weird because they can reproduce with a mate or by themselves. Also they reproduce daily if they have enough food. Usually they lay their eggs around dusk. Some of their adaptations are really cool, like their stinging cells on their tentacles keep them warm in the depths of the ocean. An obvious adaptation is that they use their tentacles to protect themselves by stinging other creatures. They are also made up of 90% water so they can float easily in water.
The cold blooded Nautilus is a very interesting mollusc. They have brown stripes on their white shell, 90 squid looking tentacles and it has a leathery shell. It is a carnivore that feeds on shellfish, shellfish molts, round worm, sea urchins, fish and shrimp. Also they breathe through 2 sets of gills. They lay eggs and the females attach the fertilized eggs to rocks in shallow water where they hatch 8-12 months later and are 3cm long. They have many adaptations such as their way of self defense, which is hiding in its hard leathery shell. Another adaptation is that they lay their eggs in shallow water so predators cant find them. A weird adaptation is that it can sense when a predators around so it withdraws into its shell immediately. They have a very hard shell so its tough for animals to break and get inside it. They can blend into the ocean floor. Their 90 tentacles fold over the prey and drag them toward their beak, crushing their shells and then they eat them. Another is their speed, they are very fast so they can catch up to their prey. Finally they can't see well so their smelling is very good in order to sniff out their prey.
