Animal Locomotion

Ms. BuntingsBlock 1

Ryan Altmann, Block 1, Ms. BuntingApe Movement- they walk. Motion- they use their legs to walk. Limbs- they have 4 limbs.Apes use their legs to walk. They have four limbs just like humans. They are the biggest of all primates. Apes eat bananas but they do eat bugs and other insects. They will fight each other if their child is in danger or because there fighting for a girl. They will also fight because their angry at each other. They stand on two limbs to climb branches or to grab food. They switch to all four limbs when they want to run. Thats called erect positive.

Brendan Mecca, Block 1, Miss Bunting Movement Too move bats flap both of their wings even in crowded areas. Motion-- The motion for bats are them darting down then darting up in a continues pattern. Limbs-- The Bat normally has up too four limbs.The Vampire bat can not only fly, but can run. The vampire bat can run as fast as a human running across the field. Bats are also the only flying mammal. Bats use echos too find them selves around in caves, in the sky, and any where in the dark.


Cheyenne Curran, B1, Ms. BuntingCheetahMovement: The cheetahs general type of movement is running. The cheetah also leaps and walks.

Motion: The cheetahs legs are their main source of motion.

Limbs: A cheetah has only five limbs, which are their legs and their tail.

The cheetah is known as the fastest animal on earth. A cheetah that is full grown can run as fast as 60 miles per hour. What helps them run that fast, is their five limbs which are their four legs and their tail. Their tail is a limb because it helps them keep their balance. The cheetah hunts with speed not stealth.

Thomas Michaels, Block 1, Ms. BuntingChimpanzee Chimpanzees move by climbing. Chimpanzees motion is made by their Arms , legs and tails. Chimpanzees have 5 limbs.Chimpanzees move by swinging in the trees . When they swing they use their strong tails and long arms . They also crawl by walking on the knuckles of their hands. They also use their tails to help them balance when they stand on three legs , when they jump it helps them land and when they run it helps them steer .

Taylor Wiszneski, B1, Miss BuntingCrab Movement-They crawl. Motion-They crawl with their legs. Limbs-They have 10 limbs.Crabs move by sliding their legs one by one and they have hair like struckshers. on their legs to get grip on the ground . Their claws help them grasp their prey just like minnows . They can hide themselves. They come out to feed only at night scavenging anything they can find. On land they mostly eat plants. Some crabs prefer to live only under water. The crabs main defense is its hard shell.

Hannah Taylor, Block 1, Miss BuntingFlying Squirrel Movement: Flying Squirrels can walk upside down. They can also hang upside down on a branch and glide. Motion: They use their small, agile feet and extra skin that acts like wings. Limbs: Flying Squirrels have five limbs. Including their arms, legs, and tail. Flying Squirrels have astonishing agility. Most people think that Flying Squirrels fly because of their name, but they dont. Instead, they glide. They get up to a high place, like on top of a tree. Then, they jump, spread out their arms and the extra skin that acts like wings, and glide. They are not technically flying because they can never gain altitude. They can only go down.

LocomotionMichael Tecce, B1, Ms. BuntingHippopatumas hippos can swim, trot, walk, and run.The hippo moves by moving their 4 legs.The hippo has 4 limbs.2 legs in back, and 2 in front.

ResearchSome species are semi-aquatic and are equally at home in the water as on land.The scientific name for this animal is hippopotamusamphibius. They live in Africa, south of the Sahara. Theyre habitat is in rivers, lakes, and grasslands. When hippos are in a hurry, they can move fast on land and in shallow water. In deep water, they like to sink to the bottom. There they trot along, digging their feet into the mud. They aren't great swimmers, but they can "dog paddle" through the waterHow they move.

Alana Adamo, Block 1, Ms. BuntingHummingbirdHummingbirds move by flight.Their main source of motion is wings. The number of limbs a hummingbird has is four. Two are the wings, and the other 2 are their feet.Hummingbirds move by wings. They hover in mid air by flapping their wings 12-90 times per second. They are also able to fly backwards, and are the only species able to do so. They also fly up to or exceeding 15mph! You can tell that their wings move very fast because you hear a continual hum when they hover and fly by. To feed, they either hover or perch.

Kelsey Moyer, Block 1, Miss BuntingJellyfish movement- they propel themselves using jet propulsion. motion- they flow with the currents limbs- they have at least 2 limbs.Jellyfish have no brain, heart, or bones. They have a way of interpreting where obstacles are, but they dont have actual eyes. No one has been able to figure out how they can process information without a brain. Jellyfish are made almost entirely by water. Less than 5% of a jellyfish is a solid material. Jellyfish float on currents in the ocean, but also use their tentacles to bob in an up and down motion. What I havent figured out yet is how they can move without a heart pumping blood through their body.


Joanna Reinoso , block 1 , Miss Bunting Movement- the general type of movement is mostly jumping

Motion- the main source of motion that the Kangaroo uses is their legs

Limbs- the main number of limbs that Kangaroos have is 4The type of movement that the kangaroo uses is jumping. It uses its strong muscular thighs and its powerful skinny little hind feet to jump really super high. The kangaroo can jump as long as about 10 feet. It can jump as high as about 30 feet. It is a medium fast animal and it can go up to about 40 miles per hour. It also weighs up to about one hundred and eighty pounds.

Josh Nelligan, block 1, Ms. BuntingKoalaA koala moves but either climbing or walking. Koala moves by using its arms and legs.A koala has four limbs.Koalas spend most of their time in trees. When they get down from trees they either run or walk to the places they have to go. Their opposable fingers give them an advantage to climb better and faster up tree trunks and to climb better on branches. A young cub clutches its fingers and hurtles from tree to tree just like monkeys. The koala also has a small pouch just like the kangaroo to carry around a young one.

Kerri Diamond, Block 1, Miss BuntingMountain Goat Mountain Goats climb and run. they use their four legs. Mountain Goats have 4 limbsMountain goats live in steep areas, so they have a great sense of balance. They run like normal goats, but are able to maneuver on almost vertical cliffs. They climb up the side of a cliff face by pushing ofF with their hind legs and landing and pulling themselves up with their forelegs. to go down, they simply leap down from platform to platform.

Bren McCarty, block 1, Ms. BuntingOstrich Movement: Ostriches move by running. Motion: they use their legs to run limbs: 2 limbs, their legsOstriches move by running. They are the fastest bird and the tallest bird and they are flightless. They can run up to 30 mph. they have two limbs, their legs. Their wings are not limbs because they dont use them In their motion. they can escape danger by running at top speed. Also they need to be able to run fast and far when they look for food.

Maddy Brodish, Block 1, Miss.BuntingPlatypus Platypuses Swim and crawl. The tail and legs is the source of motion. The platypus has 5 limbs including its tail. Platypuses have webbed toes. Platypuses are mostly always in water so one of their movements is swimming. In waters that are not that deep platypuses crawl and they also walk on the land. Platypuses walk but to help them walk and swim they use their tail. Platypuses steer with their back legs and pull through water with there front legs. When platypuses come to a place with rocks it waddles over the rocks. The platypus has 5 limbs including its tail. The tail helps the platypuses to swim away from any predators trying to eat them.

Carlee Kivlin, Block 1, Ms. BuntingSealSeal swim in the waterSeal us there arms and tail They have three limbs Seals as much limbs shorter than most mammals. The bones in there flippers are enormously long. When a seal swim quickly it holds its front flippers tightly against its sides. Its lower body moves from side to side. When the seal is swimming slowly the front flippers are used as a it stick out to the side.

Tyler White, Block 1, Ms. Bunting Squid Movement : Squids move by blowing air .

Motion : Squid moves with their tentacles . Limbs : Squid have eight limbs.

Research : The jumbo squid can grow up to six feet and weight up to 100 pounds. Their skin varies from deep purplish-red to white. Like other cephalopods their muscle-bound chromatophores on their skin enabling them to flash a range of colors. They have two diamond-shaped fins which they use to swim and glide.

Cameron Carbrey, Block 1, Ms. BuntingWalrusMovement; Walrus wiggleMotion; Their use their flippers to move around.Limbs; Walruses have four limbsWalrus use their flippers to drag themselves around on land. They also swim. They swim by moving their bodys side to side. Walruses dig their tusks into the ground to move their bodys forward.

Eric Shiffler, Block 1, Ms. Bunting Worm Movement: worms crawl and have no limbs. Motion: worms move with their belly. Limbs: worms have hairs on the bottom of their body that helps them move.

Like most animals, worms locomote. The way that worms locomote is waves of muscular contractions
