Animal of the week.
The parakeet, nicknamed budgie, the only species in the Australian genus Melopsittacus, is a small parrot belonging to the tribe of the broad tailed parrots; these are sometimes considered a subfamily. In the latter case, the parakeet is sometimes isolated in a tribe of its own, the Melopsittacini, although it is probably quite closely related to Pezoporus and Neophema. Though parakeets are often called parakeets, especially in American English, this term refers to any of a number of small parrots with long flat tails. The parakeet is found throughout the drier parts of Australia and has survived in the inlands of that continent for over 5 million years. Thank you Cameron for this idea of doing the parakeet, remember, I need more animal ideas!!!!!!! It can be any animal, extinct, alive, endangered, your favorite animal, your least, anything! Please comment on any animal suggestion.
Snapping Turtles are one of the many endangered turtle species mainly in North America and is widely hunted for their meat in this region. The natural habitat area of Snapping turtles are shallow fresh water like lakes, streams, ponds or even in estuaries of North America from southeastern part of Canada to as far as Mexico. Thank you Mogomama for the idea of doing Snapping Turtles.
The green Iguana is endangered and lives in Rainforests, and tropical dry forests, they eat plants so that makes them herbivores. The largest lizard species in Central America, the adult green iguana, can reach 6 feet in length and weigh up to 12 pounds. The species is known for its long whip-like tail that accounts for more than half its total length. Like many lizards, green iguanas have evolved a defense mechanism where they can drop there tails if caught by a predator. Although stressful to the animal, the tail regenerates without permanent damage to the iguana.
