My animal is the grizzly bear. The Grizzly bear's scientific name is Ursus arctos horribilis. Ursus mean the family unit "bear" so it is the generality of a bear. Actoros mean that it is the species "Grizzly bear". Horribilis mean in latin horrible, so the meaning it is strong and dangerous. The hole meaning of Ursus actors horriblils is: Powerful brownish- yellow bear of the uplands of western North America.

The most common know habitat that the Grizzly bear live in is western North America (Alaska, Canada , Montana, Idaho, Wyoming and Washington DC) . The Grizzly bear hibernate throughout the winter so it needs to have a big diet.

Definition of a Food Web:
A series of orgasms related by predator- pray and consumer resources interactions. Food webs are very important because you learn the cycle of life and how animals survive in the world.

Definition of habitat
A habitat is a place that an organsim lives in, and in this case the animal is the Grizzly bear. In an animal's habitat there are non living conditions for example snow, chili wind and dryness. In other habitats like africa of Indonesia the non living condition is hotness, humidity and a hot brees. And there are also aquatic habitats like rivers, oceans, lakes and etc. But in the Grizzly bear's habitat the non living conditions are snowy winters, chili summers and the dryness.

Information about the Grizzly Bear's Habitat:
The most common know habitat that the Grizzly bear live in is western North America (Alaska, Canada , Idaho, Wyoming and Washington DC). But it is most common found in Alaska and Alaska is most known for it's amazing wild life and the coldness The Grizzly bear lives in the forest of Alaska and even in some nabourhoods because Alaska is so in touch with wild life. The definition of forest is: A large tract of land coverd with trees and underbrush woodland where types of oragasims live. The Grizzly bear lives in places that snow heavily at winter and is usually chili in the summer. The Grizzly bear has many cotes of fure to keep it nice and warm throughout the winter. If the Grizzly bear lives somewhere that is hot like Montana or Tenesi, it will die out of dehydration or just the to much hotness.

Adaptation to the grizzly bear's habitat
Non living condition
Physical/ behavior
Heavy snow
Thick fure
Hunting before winter
Claws, speed, strength and grittiness
Taking care of cubs
Very protective and will kill anyone that is a predator
Hibernation diet
Grizzly bears need to eat as much as they can before winter, and if they do not gain at least 20 pounds before winter they will have to skip their hibernation season which will mess their own living system.
grass and greenery
If the Grizzly bear does not get to hunt or looses it's food, it it's the greenery automatically, because the Grizzly bear has to keep on its hard diet.
Cold water
The grizzly bear has a lot of layers of fure which keeps it warm through these cold condition.
Sun in the summer
In Alaska in summer it has only 3 hours of darkness and un the winter no sunlight. The Grizzly bear adapts to this condition by sleeping in a cave or somewhere dark.


A decomposer is an organism that eats something that is dead it could be ether an animal, plants and even humans. The role of decomposers is very important to the ecosystem because without decomposers, the earth will be filled with dead bodies. The decomposers wait for our immune system to stop because our immune system's job is to keep off decomposers from out skin. There are many kind of decomposers and we even have decomposers in our bodie which is called the white blood cells. The white blood cells eat decomposers of our skin, while our body is stil functioning. When we die those blood sells stop working and also the imune system and the decomposers will eat us.

Examples of decomposers
Screen_shot_2012-05-07_at_11.56.11_AM.png- Maggots are very alike bacteria and worms, it waits for our imune system to break down and when it does, they will eating us.
external image images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQ0PjuqR6erLYf9xX2Eleq1BkhABLmvTdPLhECy6l3F-dVRUxCj - Worms eat every type of dead matter. It will eat dead plants and when the imune system breaks it will eat animals and humans.
external image bacteria5.jpg- Bacteria eats usually dead animals and dead humans. This decomposer can be found anywhere and the minute our imune system breaks, it will start eating.
Fungiexternal image Screen%20shot%202012-05-07%20at%2011.56.11%20AM.png
external image mushroomsismall.jpg- Fungi (or mushrooms) eat usually dead trees or dead plants.

Diurnal & Nocturnal
A diurnal animal which hunts at day and sleeps at night
A nocturnal animal is an animal that sleep at day and hunts at night

Is a Grizzly bear a diurnal or nocturnal?
The Grizzly bear is an diurnal because it hunts at day and sleeps at night because it does not have the vision of hunting at night.

Symbiotic Relationships
Symbiotic- Mutualism, commensalism, parasitism.

Definition of symbiotic relationships

Grizzly bear's parasites
The Grizzly bear's parasites are:
- Diphyllobothrium
- Baylisascaris
- Bear Lice

How parasites help the Grizzly bear?
Parasites help the Grizzly bear with it's process of hibernation, so it's symbiotic relationship is mutualism relationship because the parasite gets food out of it's mouth and fure ad it gets his body clean.

Features that identify the Grizzly bear as a speicies:
  • Thick fure colores: Brown with sometimes blond highlights
  • Sharp teeth
  • Small tale
  • Big palms with sharp black claws
  • Small eyes
  • Fat
  • How they attack prey (slow and easy using their sharp teeth, claws and speed)

Groups in the Grizzly Bear's habitat
Living things:
There are many groups that live in the same habitat that the Grizzly bear live, here are the main groups:
Thing it got
trees, bushes, berries, nuts, grass, herbs, roots and etc.
Mamels (Carnivores/Omnivores)
Grizzly bears, Black bears, Polar bears, Racoons, Wolves, Ravens, Hawks, Cougars etc.
Mamels (Herbivores)
Mooses, Elks, Deers, Caribous, Squirlls, Mountain Sheeps, Bison, Marmots, etc.
Fish (Salmons, Tunas etc.), Sharks, Hump back whail, Orcas etc.
How does my body help me to adapt to the enviorment I am in?
One of the things that help me adapt to enviorments or situations is the adaptation sells, which they are build to help us adapt to serton types of situations. For example, heat, our body quickily adapts to the fact that it is hot and sends down the cooling help which as we know it is sweat.
Other conditions that humans can adapt to:
Nonliving conditions we need to adapt too
How we adapt
Cold weather
We wear thick clothing to keep us warm
We learn slowly with help
Teachers teaching us andparents helping
Playing sports
We watch other people play and we start ourselves
My food chain poster
These pictures show the comparison of my poster. The first picture is my last draft and the second picture is the first. I think my last draft was much better then the first because the first draft was not cut nicely, it had too many animals to fit and the framing was not well done. My last draft was well done because it was cut nicely every picture, it had good information, it had the description of my animal's habitat and the arrows were strait.
