The story of the Shakanga
Transcript of The story of the Shakanga
He creates an outer boundary, and separates the external environment from himself. He has a thick coat to keep bugs away and keep him warm in the winter. He also has very long and thick eyelashes to protect his sensitive eyes, and big ears to cover his eardrums.
Not unlike other mammals on Earth, Shakanga is a complex organism with billions of cells.
When the Shakanga is born, he is very small and cannot see well. For the first two weeks of life, he cannot walk walk, so he sits on his mother's back. The next two weeks he is partially on his mom's back , and partially walking. By one month he is fully walking. As the next year goes on his hearing, eyesight, and digestive system improves. In his young life, his mother teaches him a special noise that alerts other Shakangas that danger is near. His dad teaches him how to hunt bugs, and search fro food. By the time the Shakanga is 7 years old it is a full adult and will live to about 35 years.
The Shakanga is very sensitive to noise, and can hear bugs crunching in the ground, and owls. (his main predator) He responds by digging for bugs, or using his warning noise to alert the presence of owls, and then hiding, He has fair eyesight, and is very fast, to run from predators.
Shakanga is multicellular and has many cell types. Each type he has serves a different purpose. He has tissues, organs, and organ systems, For example: digestive, nervous, skeletal, and cardiovascular
The Shakanga contains a universal genetic code of DNA. This is how he produces proteins that allow him to look and function the way he does
The Shakanga reproduces sexually. The Shakanga is very much like a human in the way that is usually has one baby at a time but can have more.
The common diet of the Shakanga includes bugs for protein, berries for nutrients/antioxidants, greens, and mushrooms. He takes in the food by his mouth. and water and creates energy through his digestive system. He then releases the waste from his food
Like many mammals, the Shakanga maintains homeostasis by being warm blooded. When the weather gets cold he can maintain a warm body. If he doesn't drink enough water or eat enough food. his body conserves water and fats, so he can survive a significant time with out food, and water. He also grows a thicker coat in the winter and sheds during the spring/summer to prevent over heating.
Overtime, the Shakanga has evolved and changed to the marvelous creature he is today. As his environment in Washington has changed, Shakangas have began to shed their winter coat to accommodate the environment. Due to the large population of Great Horned Owls , and natural selection, the Shakanga population has developed very good hearing.
