6: 9/29/11 Mrs. Brewers Room | Endotherm An endotherm is an organism that produces heat internally, such as muscle shivering. This animal is a dwarf hamster or a phodopus campbelli, and were discovered by W.C. Campbell. Dwarf hamsters go into a temporary hibernating stage called torpor. Torpor is a state or regulated hypothermia in endotherms.
7: 9/14/11 Jeffersonville High School | Deciduous Leaves Deciduous trees are trees that lose their leaves once a year.
8: Mold Mold is a fungi, that grow in the form of multicellular fillimants called, hyape. Molds have many functions; desease or food spoilage, while others play an important role in biodegradation or in the production of various foods, antibiotics and enzymes. This is a picture of mold working as it spoils the steak. | 10/2/11 Alyssa's House
