• Most animals go through a reproduction cycle. What is the best reason for this?

    Best answer: Look at the notes you took on your course and/or refer to the course’s recommended textbook. It certainly is not choice A. It could be B because some animals mate, so their offspring are born in spring and have the better conditions of spring and summer in which to grow prior to facing their first winter, e.g. Ovis... show more
    Best answer: Look at the notes you took on your course and/or refer to the course’s recommended textbook. It certainly is not choice A. It could be B because some animals mate, so their offspring are born in spring and have the better conditions of spring and summer in which to grow prior to facing their first winter, e.g. Ovis aries (Domestic Sheep). Answer C is a possibility as in some species a female nurtures her offspring for a number of years before she will reproduce again, e.g. Pongo pygmaeus (Bornean Orang-utan). Answer D is also a potential candidate for the answer you are expected to provide. Unless the members of a species reproduce that species cannot maintain itself. It will become extinct.

  • If a canary was released from a ship in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, could it fly to land?

    Best answer: Interesting question. A bald eagle made an Atlantic crossing in December 1987. When it was found in Ireland, it was so weak that it could be caught without a problem.

    Best answer: Interesting question. A bald eagle made an Atlantic crossing in December 1987. When it was found in Ireland, it was so weak that it could be caught without a problem.
    In those days heavy westerly gales were raging across the ocean. Most likely the strong wind had blown the eagle out onto the ocean, too far to return. And again it was the only power to make the happy end of that crossing possible. The exact starting point of the bird is unknown of course.

    A canary, released in the middle of the ocean in quiet weather? Maybe it wouldn't be completely impossible, but very unlikely.

Hoards of marauding spiders do not go looking for humans to attack. The fear of spiders is aptly named - arachnophobia. It is a phobia: An extreme or irrational fear or aversion. There are courses available to help you overcome it.

  • Are hippos and giraffes a type of horse?

    Zebras are obviously a horse, but I think hippos may be the water type and giraffes may be the plant type. Is there any evidence to support this theory?

    Best answer: We know very little about prehistoric extinct species. Large animals, especially aquatic, are almost impossible for us to find evidence of their existence. One reason is because it is rare for large animals to fossilize, the other reason is that aquatic species fossils are mostly under water! The few aquatic species from the past that we know existed is thanks to moving tectonic plates that sometimes elevate thus exposing land that was once under shallow sea. There is ANOTHER problem with sharks specifically; only their teeth fossilize!

    Megalodon is the largest shark species we know of. Problem with sharks is that their skeleton is made out of cartilage-like ligaments, the only evidence we have of prehistoric sharks is their teeth. This bring up a major problem; the largest shark in the world now eats krill and have paper-sand like teeth which are almost impossible to fossilize.

    So, if there were giant krill eating sharks in the past, we will likely never know what they looked like or that they existed at all.
    Archeology is based on evidence, sadly sharks only evidence in the fossil records are their teeth.
