About this deal

Otters live along many of Scotland’s waterways, but head for the west coast and the islands for the best chance of spotting them. Volcanic activity, earthquakes, loss of habitat, fire, [27] [13] tourism, loss of prey due to poaching, and illegal poaching of the dragons themselves have all contributed to the vulnerable status of the Komodo dragon. A major future threat to the species is climate change via both aridification and sea level rise, which can affect the low-lying habitats and valleys that the Komodo dragon depends on, as Komodo dragons do not range into the higher-altitude regions of the islands they inhabit. Based on projections, climate change will lead to a decline in suitable habitat of 8.4%, 30.2%, or 71% by 2050 depending on the climate change scenario. Without effective conservation actions, populations on Flores are extirpated in all scenarios, while in the more extreme scenarios, only the populations on Komodo and Rinca persist in highly reduced numbers. Rapid climate change mitigation is crucial for conserving the species in the wild. [2] [73] Other scientists have disputed the conclusions about the effects of climate change on Komodo dragon populations. [74] So far we’ve largely looked at all the worrying information. Now let’s look at all the good news: the things we can do to help our guinea pigs live long and happy lives! Here are the most important steps you can take to give your guinea pig a long life: Otters live along the seashore and on the banks of rivers, lochs and burns. They’re about the size of a small dog, and have a distinctive lolloping run. They tend to be elusive, but you might spot one swimming or hear them calling to each other in high pitched squeaks or chattering angrily if threatened.

Several different factors can influence how long a guinea pig lives, from food, to genetics, to living conditions. We’ll talk about those in more detail a little later. While this may be true for certain occasions, and there is evidence from the global hospitality data and analytics company STR that hotel bookings are up sharply in London for the weekend of King Charles's coronation, generally speaking, Dr Owens said that there is “nothing to suggest that the British tourism industry wouldn’t thrive without the British monarchy”. Guinea pigs aren’t typically overeaters, but if their diet has too much sugar in it they could become overweight. Carrying excess weight puts strain on their heart and other organs, and can ultimately shrink their lifespan. Factors Affecting Pet Guinea Pig Lifespan Otters spend much of their time in the water but sleep and breed in burrows, holes and caves known as holts. To ensure there are plenty of places for otters to establish their territories and find suitable holts, we regularly remove dense and overgrown vegetation from riverbanks and along the shoreline. What do they eat?In most countries it is forbidden to have a purebred wolf as a pet. There are certain wolf hybrids that you may be allowed to keep as pets, as well as domestic dogs that look like wolves. If you are interested in owning a wolf-dog hybrid, take a look at our article explaining all you need to know about this hybrid and its legal status as a pet in different US states and in the UK.

"A central role for venom in predation by Varanus komodoensis (Komodo Dragon) and the extinct giant Varanus ( Megalania) priscus". Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America. 106 (22): 8969–74. Bibcode: 2009PNAS..106.8969F. doi: 10.1073/pnas.0810883106. PMC 2690028. PMID 19451641. Genetic analysis of mitochondrial DNA shows the Komodo dragon to be the closest relative ( sister taxon) of the Australian lace monitor ( V.varius), with their common ancestor diverging from a lineage that gave rise to the crocodile monitor ( Varanus salvadorii) of New Guinea. [16] [17] [18] A 2021 study showed that during the late Miocene, the ancestors of Komodo dragons had hybridized with the common ancestor of Australian sand monitors (including V. spenceri, V. gouldii, V. rosenbergi and V. panoptes). [19] [20] [21] In the mid-1980s, John Carpenter stumbled upon a comic book story set in a world where aliens were secretly controlling the entire human race. A lifelong fan of science fiction, Carpenter saw a metaphor lurking there that tied the aliens to Reagan-era Republican politicians, and a story began brewing in his mind. That story became They Live, Carpenter’s cult masterpiece about an American everyman who sees the world for what it really is with the help of a very special pair of sunglasses.
