    Twice now, I have found a strange bug that looks sorta like a millipede in my room. It moves sort of like a inchworm. And it has a really big flat head. The whole bug itself is only 1 cm long, so I couldn t get a good picture of it. I ve looked online for over an hour and I can t find anything that resembles this bug. Just think about a millipede with a large flat head, no antennas, and it moves like an inchworm. It s the weirdest thing. And when I grab it by its butt, it quickly whips its head around. It s very fast. I don t think it s any kind of caterpillar, even though it moves like one. I think it is some kind of millipede. Does anything come to mind? I live in North America. Millipedes aren t too common where I live. it is also very hot and dry outside.

    Best answer: You have to understand the hydrology of Florida first. The Kissimmee River that drains the main watershed of north-central Florida flows into Lake Okeechobee. The Kissimmee watershed is a major agricultural area, producing much of this country's produce and citrus crop. Because of the heavy rains the fertilizer run-off from the farms along the Kissimmee causes algae blooms in the Lake Okeechobee, which then flow through the Caloosahatchee River into the Gulf of Mexico. The algae can be toxic, and as the marine life consumes the algae, the toxin enters the food chain: as the fish eat the organisms that eat the algae, the toxins accumulate in their bodies, then the predators who eat the fish also get a dose of toxins. Furthermore, as the marine life dies from the toxins, the decay of their bodies causes low dissolved oxygen levels in the water, leading a chain reaction of more marine life die off.

    For some time a high pressure system over the Bahamas dominated the weather over Florida, The clockwise air circulation around that high pressure system caused the winds over Florida west coast to blow from the west and southwest, pinning the oxygen-poor water against the shore and washing dead fish on the beaches of Sarasota County. The high pressure system is now shifting to the north and the winds are shifting to the southeast pushing the red tide out to sea.

    While the red tide can occur naturally, there is no doubt that over-fertilizing of the fields, combined with the destruction of the wetlands that can absorb the excess fertilizer run-off is a major contributor to the frequency and severity of red and blue tides.

  • Is the Great White Shark truly related to the Megaladon?

    If the Great White Shark is the ascendant of the Megaladon (the Prehistoric 60 foot shark that is extinct) how is this possible? After watching Shark Week 2018, it got me thinking. How could the Modern Great White come about, if it's predecessor - is no more?

  • Is there any animal species that doesn't like to have sex?

    Best answer: Lots. They reproduce asexually. There are also many animals that simply release sperms and eggs into the water and let the sperms fertilize the eggs without ever meeting the opposite sex.

    So i caught these 2 red spotted/eastern newts from a pond like 4 years ago and have had them in a tank ever since. I want to release them back in the wild, but i cant bring them back to the same pond/area they came. But i have seen the same species in another pond in another state. The question is will they survive? I shouldve left them in the wild, but now i have no choice but to get rid of them because im going to college. I figure they have instincts to know how to live in the wild, but also are they now accustomed to getting the food i give them and not having to avoid predators? Do they live in groups and have to stay with the same family/group they came from? If i shouldnt release them, maybe i can find a sanctuary/rescue that will take them? Also they would have to survive a 2 hour car ride if i want to release them.
