This types of ants are one of the largest member of ant species. They are black in color and sometimes reddish brown. Their length varies from ¾” to ½”. They have round thorax and one node on their back. They have a pair of elbow angle antenna. Which make difference between termites and carpenter ants.

They do not eat wood like termites. They make tunnels inside woods because of making nest. They lay eggs into those tunnels and breed their babies. They like moist places for making nest. So, they find woods which are moist and warm. They also find places which are very near to the food and water sources and also safe for living.

Walk Your Dog

Walk Your Dog : One of the most common problems with dogs walking on a leash is when the dog pulls on them. Sometimes you may feel like your dog is taking you for a walk and you’re not being very honest. It makes for one of the most unpleasant experiences and can often cause people to stop walking there or limit the amount of walking they do.

This can cause great stress for dog owners and can lead to feelings of immense frustration. The good news is people train dogs there to walk alongside them and any dog ​​can be trained to walk right in front.

Scenario

Time to take the dog for a walk.

We get up from our chairs probably telling the dog “walking time”, the dog responds by getting up and coming back to life. We head to the bedroom in our coats or change into more flashy clothes. During this time we may make more eye contact with our dog and talk to him which makes him bounce and often this makes us happy because our dog is excited and can’t wait to go for a walk.

So we are pushing this more and more because we want our dogs to be happy. Usually the next thing is we start towards the door and if you go down the stairs or walk down the hall you will find your dog running towards the door before you can even get there. At this time we may be telling our dog to slow down or calm down.

As we got closer to the front door, the dog probably started barking and circling for joy. At this point we might make our dog sit up, though it may be shaking with excitement. We pointed our dog and as … Read more

Cat Mythology

Cat Mythology : Most lower complex animals, invertebrates, fish, amphibians and reptiles probably have an ‘as is’ worldview and accept whatever comes their way – go with the flow. But once you consider relatively taller and more complex animals, such as birds and mammals, then the complexity of the brain becomes such that to a greater or lesser extent intelligence and the ability to think and think things out have to be considered.

Those of you who have companion animals, or even those of you who have just observed animals from a distance, may wonder what these animals look like and may even think about life, the universe and everything. That is, each animal must have some kind of personal worldview; perspective or point of view may be forever beyond our understanding – usually but not always.

I chose the cat in this particular case because I have owned a cat for most of my life. This essay could easily be a dog or a horse or any other pet mammal.

So what is a cat? Can we identify with them? Can they identify with us? Well, pet cats are fun; curious; adaptable; selfish; they dream; they love variety although they can also be creatures of habit; they can ‘think’ things out and make decisions; they have vocal language and body language; they show emotion; they have memory and therefore somewhat have a sense of history; they have the same sense organs as we do; they have their own likes and dislikes whether it is food; a place to sleep, where they want or don’t want to be scratched or rubbed or caressed; and in short, every cat has a very unique personality.

Cats are of course very self-absorbed, maybe a little more than the average adult human, but certainly … Read more

What Reptile Lighting Needs

What Reptile Lighting Needs : Reptiles and amphibians are quickly becoming the largest non-dog and feline pet group in the United States. We are often asked about this lighting for pets and it seems like a lot of people really don’t know what lighting needs for their pets are.

Metabolic Bone Disease and stress are the two leading causes of ill health and, ultimately, death in pet reptiles and amphibians. Both may be caused by inadequate lighting from the pet’s house. There are many different types of lighting and it is important to research the needs of the species you are keeping. The terms that will be discussed here include photoperiod, heat, UVA rays and UVB rays.

Different species of reptiles and amphibians have different periods of activity during the day. Some are active during the day (diurnal), some are active at night (nocturnal) and some are active at dawn and dusk (crepuscular). It is usually unwise to mix this group in one cage unless sophisticated lighting arrangements can be made. . maintained. All reptiles need a proper photoperiod or day and night cycle to stimulate their normal activity patterns.

Animals that do not have the proper photoperiod become stressed and most often deteriorate to poor health and eventually die. There are special lamps in the pet market to provide light day or night. The nocturnal red light not only helps the reptile in promoting normal activity, but also allows the owner to easily observe its activity.

Reptiles and amphibians are known as ectotherms, animals that must move in and out of heat to maintain their body temperature. Lighting can be the main source of heat in a terrarium. Pet reptiles need a temperature gradient to provide a higher heat source and a place to escape the heat when they … Read more

Medical Significance of the Class Arachnida Arthropoda

Medical Significance of the Class Arachnida Arthropoda : The class Arachnida is a group of more than 100,000 species, including spiders, scorpions, ticks, and mites. Most arachnids are adapted to kill prey with poison, stingers, or fangs. Like crustaceans, arachnids have a body that is divided into a cephalothorax and abdomen.

On the cephalothorax there are 4 pairs of legs, a pair of Chelicerae, and a pair of appendages called the pedipalps. The pedipalps help chew; in some species the pedipalps are specialized to perform other functions. Arachnids undergo incomplete metamorphosis. The class Arachnida includes 3 orders of medical importance:

1. Order the Scorpion
2. Order Araneae (spiders)
3. Order Acari (fleas and mites)

scorpion

Scorpions are a group of arachnids whose pedipalps are modified into pincers. Scorpions use these pincers to handle their food and tear it apart. The scorpion’s venomous sting is used primarily to electrocute its prey and less often to defend itself. The sting is located in the terminal segment of the body, which is slender towards the tip.

The scorpion’s elongated, jointed belly is its trademark; in most chelicerates, the abdominal segments are more or less fused together and appear as a single unit. Adults of this arachnid order range in size from 1 to 18 centimeters. There are about 1,200 species of scorpion, all terrestrial, living around the world, although they are common in the tropics, subtropics, and deserts.

The mating of scorpions is complicated, with the spermatophores fixed to the substrate by the male and then taken up by the female. The young are born alive, with 1 to 95 in a given liter. Scorpions differ from spiders in two ways. Scorpions have very large pedipalps, which they hold in a forward position.

They also have a large stinger in the last segment … Read more
