Payton Shull's insight:

Wildlife in the United States is unique. We have some pretty amazing animals unlike anything else in the world. For example, the bald eagle. This bird is astounding. They are very cool animals and I would like to see one upclose one day!

I agree with you, the United States does have some pretty cool animals. I've seen a bald eagle but I would also like to see some of the other animals out there!
Lauren Kingery's comment, October 2, 2013 2:08 PM
I agree with you Payton. The United States does have a lot of different, unique animals. I think that it's important that we take care the environment so we can continue to have these amazing animals. If we don't take care of the environment we could lose those. And we can never get them back.

i would have ever guessed that a mosquito is more dangers than a bear rattlesnake or scorpion i find that very interesting
Jerod Garland's comment, October 7, 2013 12:39 PM
I would definitely have guessed the grizzly bear would be at the top of the list. I feel like the bear has more opportunities to attack because they go into campsites and look for stuff. But then again, moose are huge. There has been quite some damage caused by deer, so a moose which is 3 times the size of a deer could really hurt something.

Warmer waters changes lobsters into cannibals | Aquaculture Directory | Wildlife | Scoop.it
An American scientist researching marine wildlife off the coast of Maine has caught cannibal lobsters on camera for the first time.

Payton Shull's insight:

I think this is kind of sad! It's weird though how they turned cannibalistic just because of the warmer waters! This should be a major breakthrough in science if we figure out how this happened!

“Their legs were paralyzed, and then they actually atrophied. They almost looked like they were mummified.” — Leona Green.

Payton Shull's insight:

This is strange. How could they just become paralyzed? and look mummified? That is very strange. I hope they figure this one out soon.

Endangered whooping crane recovery suffers major setback

Endangered whooping crane recovery suffers major setback | Wildlife | Scoop.it

[excerpt]

A major bi-national conservation effort linking the endangered whooping crane’s Canadian breeding grounds to a new experimental colony in Louisiana has suffered a “profound setback” after what officials are calling the “thoughtless” killing of two of the 10 reintroduced birds — allegedly by a pair of teenagers firing gunshots from their truck along a Gulf Coast backroad.

The earlier deaths of four other transplanted cranes over the past nine months have left just four survivors in the new colony at Louisiana’s White Lake wetlands, imperilling a wildlife recovery project that has involved dozens of Canadian and American experts and has attracted high-profile support from U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar.

Payton Shull's insight:

Whooping cranes are very endangered. So for something like this to happen, is devastating. Hopefully they make a miraculous recovery and pull it out in the end. They are very cool and unique!

Top 10 Most Dangerous Animals In North-America

Top 10 Most Dangerous Animals In North-America Song: Snoop Dogg Ft. Pharrell Williams-Drop It Like Its Hot
Payton Shull's insight:

North America has some pretty dangerous animals! But they are also very unique and cool looking....as long as you don't get too close! But they do balance out the circle of life so I am glad we have them.

Matthew Bryan Vos's comment, October 2, 2013 3:32 PM
This is pretty interesting because most of us probably have no knowledge about these species and how we can keep them alive and help make them a healthy well sustainable habitat for them to live and in return help balance out the circle of life.
Anna Linde's comment, October 4, 2013 11:53 AM
I knew the grizzly bear is in for the win. I like the music of this video, the animals are great choices. But my sister likes wolves.

Mystery disease strikes Arctic seals in Alaska, Canada and Russia.

[excerpt]

Veterinarians in Alaska say they don't know what has killed almost 200 arctic ringed seals since July, with similar deaths reported in Canada and Russia.

The mystery ailment causes the animals' hair to fall out and ulcers to develop on their skin and flippers, and necropsies have revealed lesions on their lungs, livers, hearts and brains, NewScientist.com reported Saturday.

Payton Shull's insight:

This is very sad. Arctic seals are very neat looking creatures. I really hope they figure out how they are dying so they can prevent this from happening!

Tis is a short article on a mysterious disease that is killing seals, walruses, and other animals in the upper part of the artic circle. This relates to the book because the location is in the U.S. and Canada. I like this story because mysteries always intrigue me.

"The Wild Horses are fighting for their lives to stay free and it is people like the Shane and Sia Barbi aka the Barbi Twins, Willie Nelson and his daughter Amy Nelson, Katia with Humanion Films, Craig Downer a Wildlife Ecologist, The American Wild Horse Preservation and many others."

Payton Shull's insight:

I think this is really cool! These people devote time to helping these horses stay free. Hopefully this sparks some other people to help out. Or even better, sparks interest in helping save other endangered animals in North America. This is a great thing. Keep on going.

Tracking narwhals in the Arctic of North Baffin Island, Nunavut Canada

Tracking narwhals in the Arctic of North Baffin Island, Nunavut Canada | Wildlife | Scoop.it
In mid-August 2011, representatives from WWF Canada worked with a 15-person field crew to fit satellite tags to a number of narwhals in the region of North Baffin Island, Canada.

[excerpt]

WWF is glad to be able to provide support to a superb project partnership of the local Inuit community of Pond Inlet, the Nunavut Wildlife Management Board, the Canadian Federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO), the Narwhal Tusk Research project centred at Harvard University, the Vancouver Aquarium and the Calgary Zoo in tracking the narwhals.
Weekly updates on the narwhals’ positions will be provided by our partners, the narwhal specialists from the DFO, and will be available for viewing on this page on the map directly below, which will be updated weekly as new information becomes available.


Via Northern_Clips
Payton Shull's insight:

Narwhals are really neat animals. I'm happy to learn that there are people out there that are tagging them. I would like to learn more about them and learn more about their habitat. I would also like to know like how they interact and how they feed.
