Description of the animals conduct and Habitat
Animals behavior is the most difficult issue to observe without full concentration. Therefore, for anyone to record the normal conduct of any animal you are required to set an appropriate time for the activity and make sure that you are conversant with various the observation techniques. During my lookup on the observation of various animals conduct and its habitats, I visited various parts of the country to observe on the behavior of the bighorn sheep, the Californian two-spot octopus and the purple carlifornian earth worm. I took a record regarding every of the animals. Therefore, this paper addresses the description of the behaviors and habitats of the named animals.
The bighorn sheep
The bighorn sheep is among the many wild sheep species that are found in North American. Its order is artiodactyla, the genius is ovis, species is Canadensis and its family is bovidae. It has a body that is compact which is a chocolate brown fur that is white trimmed on the muzzle, muscular, belly and rump. The male bighorn sheep has a two large, curved horns while the females have short horns which are slightly curved. While the bighorn sheep were flocking some of the rams were using their horns to fight each other. Moreover, bighorn sheep have two wide-set eyes which are situated well in front of on the head hence providing them with a two wide curve of extraordinary vision. Their bodies were covered with thick hair. They had outer hooves that were shaped to holdup any slight protrusion and the soft inner pads provided a grip to various surfaces especially the steep areas. The bighorn sheep were found in western regions of North America. Those place were hilly and steep that aided in providing them with a hiding place away from predators.
As the big horn sheep were ruminants, they engaged themselves in eating grass, plants and lichens in large proportions as they always have a complex four stomach parts. That type of their stomach enables them to re-chew their food as it is being digested. The bighorn sheep also fed in flocks facing different directions which I realized that it was to protect themselves from predators.
The California two-spot octopus
It is one of the octopus that is found in many parts of the coast of California. Its order is octopoda, family is octopodidae, its genus is octopus and its species is O.bimaculoides. The California two-spot octopus was easily identified by the round blue eyespots that were found on the both sides of its head. It had substantially elongated arms. The octopus was grey in colour with some yellow spots. However, whenever it moved around the water and came across solid particles of different colors, the octopus changed its colour for the purpose of adapting to the environment. The California two-spot octopus was feeding on the small animals that were already found in the water such as the crabs, snails, mussels, crayfish and clams. The water was favorably warm. In the aquarium, the octopus preferred to stay in the intertidal and underneath zones. The place was sandy with rocks but the California two-spot octopus spent most of the alone with no sign of escaping to hide in the rocks.
The red Californian earth worm
It is a species of an earthworm that lighter in colour compared to the other types of worms. It is adapted to decomposing organic materials. It is of order Haplotaxida, its family is Lumbricidae, its genus is Eisenia and its species is E.foetida hence the biological name Eisenia fetida. The red Californian earth worm flourished in the rotting compost, manure and vegetation making. In each of their segment, they possessed a group of bristles that aided them as they moved in and out. Consequently, it enabled them to grip closely to surfaces as they stretch and during contraction it enabled them to thrust themselves backward and forward. The red carlifornian earthworm exuded a pungent liquid when it was roughly handled. This was to prevent any predator from attacking the worm.
In conclusion, I think that I recorded the normal behavior of the animals as I had an ample time to observe their behavior. For instance, for the case of the bighorn sheep I was able to observe their activities as they were moving, feeding and when they were interacting among themselves in the given time although it was a short time. For the California two-spot octopus, I was able to observe it keenly in the aquarium without any interferences. Moreover, the place was only limited to the habitat of the octopus hence I think that I recorded its normal behavior since it was its favourable environment. Finally, the behavior of the red Californian earth worm was also normal as I was able to observe it clearly while it was in the animal manure. Moreover, I was able to restrain one of the earthworms and examine every part of it.
