Daniel T
WALT description habitats in New Zealand and species that live in them.  
Success Criteria:

    1. Appearance
    2. Size
    3. Species they belong to
    4. Diet
    5. If endangered
  6. Use detail and descriptive words

I have created a New Zealand swamp habitat and included 3 creatures that live there, one endemic, two native.

The Swamp
The swamp is a natural place for frogs and toads. It has old trees and vines. It has many bugs and flies. A swamp is 95% of water and 5% of land, depending on the weather. Its population is 10% of human  and 80% of animals .  Many cities once were swamps many years ago. The swamp is a very nice place for the black gum tree because the ground is very damp.

The L Markhami Frog.  
The L Markhami frog was a land frog. The L Markhami frog is                                                                       extinct, no one got a photo or knows the colour of the frog, but we think it was a greenish colour. Any of the four species are known to make are chirps or yelps when harassed.

The Longfin Eel
The Longfin Eel is 2 metres long. The Adult sized eel weighs 40kg.
The Longfin Eel eats worms larvae and when they get bigger they eat fish.
The Longfin Eel has 2 eyes 2 fins and a long body.

The NZ Mosquito
The NZ Mosquito is endemic because it was here before the
humans. Its diet is any living thing and humans. Mosquitoes
weigh 2.5 milligrams. The mosquito has 2 wings, 6 legs and 2 eyes but
thousands of lenses. When the mosquito first hatches it has to to eat small bugs and lives in a swamp for 2 or 3 weeks to find food then leves.


That was my species and habitat description I hope you enjoyed it and will comment about more interesting things.
