Joel's Species & System

Joel's Species & System

Goliath Birdeater
The Goliath Birdeater is a spider that belongs to the big ass spider family, Theraphosidae. It may be the largest spider in the world by mass. The females live 15-25yrs and the males live 3-6yrs, Seen in South America.
DEFENSE: By rubbing it's hairy legs on its abdominals it produces a tiny cloud of barbed hair that when it gets in contact with eyes and mucous membrane, it causes extreme pain. It also has large fangs.
Despite the name "Birdeater", it rarely eats birds. 
P.S. Don't let it bite you because it would feel like drilling a nail through you hand. eeeek!!

Botfly Larva

While searching for pictures.

The Botfly Larvas are internal parasites of mammals, some species growing in the host's flesh and others within the gut. They have backwards projecting spines thats why it would hurt if you try to pull it out of your flesh. There has been stories of this species invading many mammals and even humans. If you search in google there are a bunch of pictures you would regret seeing. Specially the one of the eye.

Panda
The eyespots of a panda are generally a circle(cubs). As they grow it becomes a shape of a teardrop.
Chinese philosophers believe that the panda is a symbol of the Ying and Yang philosophy. Making it a symbol of peace and harmony.
Pandas are in the bear family and the red panda is in the raccoon family. Pandas also have a special lining in their throat that prevents bamboo splinters.

Circulatory System
The Circulatory System is a system that allows blood to circulate and transport nutrients, oxygen, carbon dioxide hormones, and blood cells to and from cells in the body. 
The bigger the body of a mammal the slower resting heart rate. The end of a relationship can really "break your heart".
