BC: The ocean and jungle both have predators and prey. They are both ecosystems, with living and non living factors. The desert only gets 10 inches of rain a year but the ocean is filled with water. The desert is also dry arid, almost the complete opposite of the ocean. The desert plants are small and mostly dead, while the ocean plants are almost all alive and always damp. They get enough sunlight and water unlike the desert plants.
FC: The Desert
1: The coyote is at the top of the food chain. It eats the black tailed jack rabbit, which eats the prickly pear cactus. The cactus lives on water, and thats the desert food chain.
2: Coyotes are mammals and carnivores. They can run up to 40 mph. 50-70% of coyotes die before adulthood. Adulthood is 10-12 months old. About 80% of those die from trapping, shooting, poisoning, and other controlling options. Coyotes eat Black tAil Jackrabbits and other animals.
3: Black Tailed Jackrabbits are Herbivores and Mammals. They Rest in a burrows underground. They also use Shrubs for cover from predators like the coyote. They eat vegetation, like cacti, such as the prickly pear cactus.
4: Prickly pear cacti are easily recognized by there prickly thorns on them. They thorns break and stay in the hand, very painful to get out. Prickly pear cacti live off water, which is stored in them. Prickly Pear cacti also have a lot of nutrients in them, which is very good for the predators like the black tailed jackrabbit.
5: Water comes from rain, and is represented by H2O on the periodic table. h2o stands for 1 hydrogen and 2 oxygen. Water is transparent and is the base of survival, as it is a fluid. The earth is covered 70-75% of water.
