Period:5 Group 8: Erica M. Patty M. Alex G. Sebastian D. Laysan Duck Introduction: Reproduction: Behavior Sources: Our group's zoo animal for the project, is the Laysan Duck. The Laysan Duck is actually a very interesting bird. It lives on Laysan island but, officials have some of them in rescues, because the bird is currently "critically endangered" but it is still a fascinating bird. Interesting Facts: The Laysan duck does not swim
The Laysan Duck was named by Walter Rothschild
In the day it hides in bushes Human Interaction: Humans use the Laysan Duck for many purposes. One purpose is for food. Humans kill the duck, so that way they can eat it. They also us just hunt the duck for fun. Another way humans interact with this duck is by destroying their habitat. They have done this by bringing in other animals like rabbits, that killed all of the vegetation. This made the island like a desert and the ducks almost died. Another human interaction that badly affects the Laysan Duck is pollution in the water. The Laysan Duck had gotten Botulism for the polluted water of the tsunami of 2010. Classification & General Classification: Family, Order, Class, etc. The Laysan Duck has a couple different behaviors. For instance they snap their beak and start running with their neck out, when being attacked. They also try to live by fresh water, because they like to get food around shallow parts of lakes. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laysan_Duck

This is because it does not know how to swim. Since, it does not know how to swim it gets its food by caatching it on land. http://www.arkive.org/laysan-duck/anas-laysanensis/video-08a.html#utm_source=social-network&utm_medium=share&utm_campaign=species-laysan-duck Click the Link Bleow to see how the Laysan Duck eats The Laysan Duck has a clutch size of about four eggs.
