Argonauta bottgeri, also known as Böttger's argonaut, is a species of pelagic octopus belonging to the genus female of the species, like all argonauts, creates a paper-thin eggcase that coils around the octopus much like the way a nautilus lives in its shell (hence the name paper nautilus).

bottgeri is the smallest argonaut species. The eggcase rarely exceeds 50 mm in Family: Argonautidae. Observations on the animals hitherto found in the shells of the genus Argonauta / by W.J.

Argonauta argo, also known as the greater argonaut, is a species of pelagic octopus belonging to the genus female of the species, like all argonauts, creates a paper-thin eggcase that coils around the octopus much like the way a nautilus lives in its shell, hence the name paper Chinese name for this species translates as "white sea-horse's nest".

(Image by Valerie Taylor/Caters News) Females are the most-commonly encountered members of the genus, ostensibly due both to their larger size relative to the males (males are only about 10% the size of females) and the fact that it is the females which are capable of forming the unusual paper-thin shell unique to.

Mollusca, (soft-bodied animals,) in general covered with a shell; as, for instance, a snail; or without a shell, as a slug. Conchifera, (shell-bearing animals,) with a shell, consisting of two valves, as an oyster or mussel.

Cirrhipeda, (with feet like cirri, or hairs.)The inhabitant of the acorn-shell, found on the back of the larger kind of shell-fish, &c., is an instance of this. Internal shells include the cuttlebones of cuttlefish, the gladii of squids and the vampire squid, the winged shells of cirrate octopods, and the spiral shells of Spirula.

Additionally, females of the octopus genus Argonauta secrete a specialised paper-thin eggcase in which they reside, and this is popularly regarded as a "shell", although it.

Evidence for this process could be found in the fossil record, the geographical distribution of living species, homologous structures of living organisms, and similarities in early development, or embryology.

Answer: The correct answer is plants and animals adapt to their environment over time. Explanation: The studies made by Charles Darwin in the Galapagos Islands, resulted in unique creatures but with similar characteristics to each other, which adapted perfectly to the environment they inhabited.

Which led him to reflect on their origin. This trip that lasted 5. Together with Konrad Lorenz, Niko Tinbergen is generally acknowledged as the founder of the young science of ethology. Professor Tinbergen has spent a lifetime of research exploring the behavior of many types of animals in their natural environments, and has founded centers of worldwide renown for research and teaching in the behavioral sciences, first in his native.

The argonauts (genus Argonauta) are enigmatic cephalopods. They have a cosmopolitan distribution in subtropical and tropical seas, where they. THE TAPE-WORMS, or TÆNIÆ⁕ Tæniæ are worms that inhabit the bodies of different animals, where they are destined to feed upon juices already animalized.

They are generally found in the alimentary canal, and usually about the III upper part of it, where there is the greatest abundance of chyle, which seems to be their natural food.

In structure they are very. This volume provides many learning opportunities for readers who are interested in the animals that roamed the planet so long ago.

On the Origin of Species is a long work, but Darwin, in the book’s introduction, describes it as an “abstract.” He had been working on a longer book, but decided to publish his core thoughts. Full text of "Elements of conchology: An Introduction to the Natural History of Shells and of the Animals.

Archaeopteryx was a bird-like dinosaur. It lived in an archipelago of islands that later formed Europe millions of years ago. It was a raven-size. It had a feather and wing and was able to fly. Despite that, it was more similar to the dinosaurs than the modern birds, with its sharp teeth, claws, and skeleton.

Nevertheless, it represents. Three new centric diatom species assigned to a new genus are described from Miocene lacustrine deposits of Idaho. Species of the new genus, Mesodictyon, have the areola cribrum in the middle of the loculus, strutted processes and radiating, non-fasciculated striae.
