Week #10 TIME TO SAY GOODBYE!!!!!!!

I have had much fun doing this blogging challenge and the blogs I have written in total is 19 posts. School based posts are in total are 18. The posts that were not school based was only one. But the post that I had the most comments was probably the Research about the research about our name or the title Natalie research then the endangered Amur leopard or week 5 then the finish the story. I have gotten 8 comments in total. The post that was probably my favorite was the Endangered Amur Leopard or week 5 because I got to write about my favorite animal like the wild and domestic cats and I really like the Amur Leopard.

I  have changed my blog themes many times because I wanted to see what I could put as my theme so I can change my background and have the different seasons on it like for example my background right now is spring but will soon in June be a summer background. I have a total of 9 widgets and I don’t really think that is too much but if I was to put even more on the blog then I think I would be overwhelmed but that is just me. I only have two oversea students in Africa and Madagascar. The web tools I have used was mostly comp fight because I could get a picture for my background and pictures for my posts and blog.

I have had Nicole audit my blog

question #1 was her first impression of the blog was that it matched what the topics were about ad they thought it was good and they also liked the writing and the pictures I have put on my posts to represent what the post for that week was about.

Question #2 was what captured their attention was that I am good at writing poems and she also liked my theme

question #3 was what was distracting to them                                                                             was my punctuation

question #4 was that the suggestions were that she suggested that                                              I work on my punctuation

Most cats do not have eyelashes but some can and if you would like to know more than click on this link http://www.animalplanet.com/pets/cat-facts/?fact_id=47398Cats are one of my most favorite animals.

Cats conserve energy by sleeping for an average of 13 to 14 hours a day  and domestic cats usually weigh around 4 kilograms (8 lb 13 oz) to 5 kilograms (11 lb 0 oz) and the heaviest domestic cat in the world on record is 21.297km which is (46lb and 15.2 oz) that is heavy!. Cats can be lethal hunters and very sneaky, when they walk their back paws step almost exactly in the same place as the front paws did beforehand, this keeps noise to a minimum and limits visible tracks. Cats can see in the dark better than a human can because they have powerful night vision which lets them see to about 6 times lower than a human needs to be able to see.

Poem #1 My Emotions

15416694058_bae85b1666Photo Credit: via Compfight cc

Many people don’t

know my emotions,

Some days are sarcastic

some are interesting but some are just bored

and they can change as fast as lightning hits a tree and

Some days my emotions are as sad as a rainy day

but many times I am as happy as someone winning a prize

But I think about how to control my emotions everyday.

Like whether directly or inderectaly.  for a example mosquitoes might not be our best friends but they are food for bats. If all the mosquitoes died, then the bats might not have enough food and would starve to death. And if the bats become extinct, then the animal which feeds on bats would go through the same process. Or vice versa: We might think that bats are useless to us, but if bats were to become extinct, then the mosquitoes would become overpopulated.

Photo Credit: Stewart Taylor (SMT Photography) via Compfight cc

every day animals are being poatched or killed but poached and hunting are both the same because they both involve killing animals and why I dicited to post about it is because I care for indangered animals.  Like for example the Amur leopard is one of the endangered animals I like. The amur leopard instead of living in the savanah where you would think most leopards live the amur  leopard accually lives in the fat eastern part of russia.

The amur leopard is like most leopards it can run up of a speed of 37 miles per hour. This animal has been recorded to leap more than 19 feet horizontally and up to 10 feet vertically can you do that?. The leopard is solitary while it is nimble footed and strong. The amur leopard can like foe 10-15 years and 20 years in captivity. The anur leopard is also known as the far east leopard found from: https://www.worldwildlife.org/species/amur-leopard

Amur lepoards are rarely found in cold or high elevational enviorments but instead likes the most fammiliar home in africa on the savannas. Populations are mostly stable. But it is found that in the northern range and temperate and harsh winters of Russian Far East is where some amur leopards live.

The amur leopards summer pelt is 2.5cm long but in the winter it gets 7cm long.    The amur leopard has longer legs than most leopard and tigers and can be told apart from most leopards by the widely spaced rosettes with thick borders. Adult male amur leopard weigh around 32-48 kg, and exceptionally large males weigh up to 75 kg, females weigh 25-43 kg. It is mostly known to adapt to almost any habitat that provides it with food and cover.
