Mumbai and Sanjay Gandi National Park : DNews

Mumbai and Sanjay Gandi National Park : DNews | Wildlife | Scoop.it
Expanding cities can swallow biodiversity hotspots and other important protected natural areas.
Delaney Poole's insight:

I think that the cities need to stop expanding, because it is going into the wildlifes habitat. I know that city expanding can create more jobs and more homes for people to live, but the animals habitat is being taken away from them and we're distroying there homes. We don't see the impact it's having on them becuase we're to worried about ourselves to wonder about anything else. The animals habitats being taken away and pretty soon if it all gets taken away there not going to have anywhere else to go. They might go extinct because we're taking away all the things they have to survive, and we could put them in zoos. But an animal is better out in its nature habitat and zoos would be overly crowded and wouldn't be able to fit all the animals that are out in the wild now.

Officials moving animals out of Las Vegas zoo - Las Vegas Review-Journal

Officials moving animals out of Las Vegas zoo
Las Vegas Review-Journal
In the 30 years of operation, the Las Vegas zoo on Rancho Drive has been cited by government agencies, sued, come under fire from employees and had several animals die.
Delaney Poole's insight:

I think that it was a smart idea to move the animals out of that zoo. With all the all the things that have happened at that zoo, those animals need to be in a safer place. This zoo has been sued, had fires, also serveral animals have died. They've had over $13,000 in electrical safety violations. It's shocking that the zoo was still able to be open for all the damage that's been done, It's been up and running for 30 years! But the animals have relocated to the San Diego Zoo, and have healthier and I bet a lot happier.

I think it's weird that they are finally but it's a good thing that they are changing something. The bathroom thing is a little weird.. as in illegal, but I guess if people go to the zoo, they should know what to expect.
Jazz VanHemert's comment, October 1, 2013 10:33 AM
I agree with you about their smart decision. They can't just let the animals stay there to die. If they animals died its possible that a long term effect would be some animals would be distinct.
Molly Kellar's comment, October 1, 2013 10:37 AM
I think it was a great idea for the animals to finally be moved out of that zoo. It's crazy to think how long they let it go on. If it wasn't safe for the people that are visiting it and also not for the animals than it was definitely a good idea to relocate and start a good life for the animals.

Small Animals Sense Time Slower Than Humans, Study Finds
Huffington Post
We tend to assume time is the same for everyone, but according to research published in the journal Animal Behaviour, it has different speeds for different species.
Delaney Poole's insight:

This article is about the life and how a hummingbird is. With this article it says that if it wasn't for the hummeringbirds "bullet speed" they aren't sure how they would be surviving. Along with the article talks about how the hummeringbird is a part of one of the smallest animals brain. Also hummeringbirds are attracted to bright colored flowers, fruit, things of that nature. With their vision and their speed the hummingbird can see many things in a short amount of time.

10 Deadliest Animals on The Planet

10 Deadliest Animals on The Planet | Wildlife | Scoop.it
Animals you probably never want to meet! (Los 12 animales mas peligrosos del mundo: http://t.co/CF5z3aMPzo)
Delaney Poole's insight:

I think that it was really interesting to see all these unique animals be the most deadliest animals on the planet. The fact that on most of these animals all you have to do is just touch them and it can instint kill you. Some of these animals just blend in with our usual surroundings, so sometimes you can even know that they're there. You usual would think it would be the king cobra just a regular snake, but with these animals they are odd colors that you wouldn't see usually. These animals are truly unique, but also I wouldn't be caught dead near them anytime soon.

I think this is a really cool article. I've never really wondered that to deadliest animals were and half of them in the story are animals that I've never heard of! It's cool to read about this stuff because you never really realize all the animals that are living around us.
AJ Kingery's comment, October 1, 2013 10:33 AM
This is really cool. I never thought about how deadly animals really are. Luckily most of them are in different countries but the US still has some deadly animals . Ive also never worried about deadly animals but my mind has changed about that now because they can take peoples lives away. Cool article!

Panda panic! Zoo says government shutdown will halt animal cam
Today.com (blog)
Panda lovers, it's worse than you might've thought: Should the government shut down at midnight tonight, the National Zoo's panda cam will go dark.
Delaney Poole's insight:

I found it interesting that they shutdown the Smithsonian's National Park. The park had to shut down due to camera that was being broadcasted. I think that they're over reacting to this situation. But, they said that the animals will stay in the zoo, but yet it is not open to the public. Plus you aren't a lot to just go through the zoo like if you're riding your bike or taking a walk because they're afraid that this "broadcasting" of the animals will continuing if people are let in. The only people that can see the animals would be the caretakers.

A zoo in washington is shutting down the camera on a panda exhibit. I think people are getting worked up over nothing. I mean, it doesn't really affect the everyday lives of us. Or even any life for that matter. Besides, the camera in China is still up-and-running so at least there is still something.
AJ Kingery's comment, October 1, 2013 10:30 AM
They are getting worked up about absolutely nothing! It's just a panda "camera" so we can get a better view of it. It's nothing to be worried about. It's not like peoples lives are getting destroyed.

Liz Wickard talks with children and their parents about beavers during a Nature at Night hike Sept. 20 at the Morrison Nature Center in Aurora.

Delaney Poole's insight:

I like that this program shows people how different animal enviorments work and how there lives are being lived.  I liked that it gets people interacting in the animals habitat and seeing what they do. Along with what they do for food, water, shelter and how they do with there own kind or different animals that are around. I think it's a good idea for us to see what they see, by looking closer instead of it just being an anthill. Looked close it's seen has a home, and a place were there family, it shows that we have some similarities with these animals.

Delaney Poole's insight:

I don't like that Obama is using fuzzy, cute animals to promote something just doesn't deal with them. I'd understand if he was promting like what an animal shelters like or that an animal is in need for someone that won't abuse them in the way that they used to be. Obama is using these animals to making a product that he wants everyone to have go up. If people don't want to use it I don't know what his next step will be to getting people to get something that they don't want. I know that having some of those products is a smart thing to have, but if people don't want them you shouldn't force them to do something they don't want to do.

20 things you didn't know about cows

20 things you didn't know about cows | Wildlife | Scoop.it
In which we reveal that cows have accents and can smell things from 6 miles away. (RT @IS_Foundation: Did you know!?!
Delaney Poole's insight:

I never knew all the things that cows could do. Like that there milk goes up to 100 pounds a day. Or that they can lie out for 10-12 hours. I didn't think that cows could have this much going for them. They are truely cool animals and that have many "talents" I'd say. The thing that shocked me the most expensive cow was 1.2 milliion dollars which I think is kind of ridiculious.

This is a funny article and I'm glad that I read it. I learned so much stuff about cows that I didn't know before. Cows are cool animals and they have cool features.
Jazz VanHemert's comment, September 27, 2013 10:44 AM
I think this an interesting article. In Iowa we have lots of cattle so its good to know more about them since we live in Iowa. I learned a lot of facts about cows!
Molly Kellar's comment, October 1, 2013 10:41 AM
I thought it was interesting when one of the facts said that bulls are unable to see the color red so when matadors try to get the bull's attention, they only charge at them because of the mass movement being produced by the flag.
