My AnimalCaterpillar 11. My Animal - CaterpillarThere are 2100species ofcaterpillar around the worldBiological classification ofliving organismsKingdom : AnimaliaPhylum : ArthrpodaClass : InsectaOrder : LepidopteraFamily : PapilionnidaeCommonly known asSwallowtail Caterpillar 12. My Animal Life CycleLifecycleEggCaterpillarPupaButterflyCaterpillar is the larvaeform of butterflyButterfly lays eggs on the leaveof a plant that only thecaterpillar eatsA hard protective casing forcaterpillar to undergometamorphosis into butterflyThe whole cycleusually takes up 4-8 weeksSwallowtail pupaare typicallyattached to asubstrate by silk 13. Caterpillar isaninsect, thus ithas only 3pairs of truelegsAnal clasperand prolegsact like suckerand help thecaterpillar toclimbHeadTrue legsProlegsMy Animal - AnatomyAnal clasperAbdominal segment Thoracic segmentCaterpillar has4000muscleswhile human only have629 muscles.248 muscles in thehead 14. My Animal - Strategy of SurvivalOsmeteriumA bright-coloured flesh that evert on thecaterpillar head when threathened. It emitsfoul smell to ward off predators.It is a signature defense mechanism ofSwallowtail caterpillarAppearanceStartling appearance and brightcolour as warning to predatorthat they may be poisonous.MovementThrash aroundwhen captured toattempt an escapefrom predatorsSwallowtail CaterpillarEat up to 27000times of its ownweight and increasebody mass by1000times. 15. My Animal Strategy of SurvivalOther Caterpillar 16. 1. CamouflageCaterpillar resemble thesurrounding environment to avoidbeing spot by predatorsCaterpillar of Comma Butterflyresemble bird dropping to avoidbeing prey by birds 17. 2. PoisonousThe caterpillar extracts the toxinfrom their host plant (the plant theyeat)and process it into their own venom.Lonomia obliqua and Lonomia achelous arecaterpillars in Brazil that produce toxin that can causesevere internal hemorrhage and death in human after24 hours.The death rate caused by these caterpillars is 2.5%. 18. 3. BehaviorAmorpha juglandis makes high pitchedwhistles ranging from 9 kHz to 22 kHz toscare away predatorsThe whistle last for 44 to 2060 ms andcomprise of 1 to 8 whistles. 19. Psychidae caterpillar or commonly known as Bagworms construct casesfrom natural materials such as twigs to hide in.4. Protective Case 20. My PlantBamboo 21. My Plant - BambooKingdom : PlantaePhylum : MagnoliophytaClass : LiliopsidaOrder : PoalesFamily : PoaceaeBamboo is a grass, not a tree.There are 1000species ofbamboo in the world. 22. My Plant - AnatomyStemCulmNodeBamboo is hollow on theinside.Each section or culm isdivided by nodes. 23. My Plant - AnatomyRootRunner roots have been documented totravel over20 feet (6.096 meter)in a single season underground.Bamboo root is a rhizome root. It can becategorized as running roots andclumipng root. 24. My Plant - AnatomyLeavesThe leaves are hard to chewand not delicious to preventherbivores from consumingthem. 25. My Plant Strategy of Survival 26. 1. Mass SeedingBamboo of the same stockaround the world flowers atthe same time and die.Flowering of bamboo occursonce every 20 to 120 years. Itis a rare occurrence. 27. 2. Strong StructureStrong root tosupport theplant andprevent it fromcollapsingHigh tensilestrength of28000 kg/inchesand steel has23000 kg/inches 28. 3. Fast Growing255.3 cm 300cmBamboo can growup to39 inches(100cm)in 24 hours.I measured thebamboo height inmy site 29. Site VisitRiverstone Eco Resort 30. Day 1 Late departure due to some problem. Bought breakfast for those who want it at the roadside Arrived at the Riverstone Eco Resort Loading luggages 31.
