The Amazing Race

Charlotte Kaden Whitney

Pre-Travel

On the first day Somethings that we noticed were The vomiting, diarrhea, stomach cramps, and more.

Some one mentioned malaria But we don't know much about it

or some other viruses that attack the stomach and intestines.

We told our doctor that we were experiencing body aches, nausea, and low grade fever.

Luckily he told us that it's not malaria and what is the "stomach flu"

For one, it's not really the flu! So all is good and we can move on with the race!

Before our team left we had to get vaccinated for all of the common diseases found that we could get when traveling to the different countries:


1. Hepatitis A (immune globulin)

2. Hepatitis B

3. Polio

4. Malaria

5. Rabies

Galapagos Islands- The Vampire Finch

  • Bird
  • Geospiza difficilis septentrionalis
  • The Vampire Finch's beak has helped the finch survive in it's ecosystem by providing an easy way to access the nectar inside plants and blood inside of other animals. Another adaptation is their song. Like a lot of birds they have an unusual set of vocal chords, they sing their song to let others know of what is coming or as a cry for help. believe it or not their diet I's a very interesting but helpful adaptation. They feed on other animals blood. There will most likely always be another animal for the finch to feed on.
  • Sexual Dimorphism means that there are drastic changes ibt he make and female "versions" of the species. That means that the male and female both contribute to the reproduction the offspring.

Morocco- Moroccan Glass Lizard

  • Reptile
  • Hyalosaurus koellikeri
  • One adaptation the Glass Lizard has is that they can separate their tail from their body. When a predator catches them by their tail they release the tail from their body and can escape because the tail stays in motion causing a distraction. Their body shape is another adaptation, they are shape very similar to a snake, their eye and ear openings are what make them a lizard. Their skin/pattern is a good camouflage in certain situations.It is a strength yet also a weakness.
  • The Glass Lizard can lay eggs, yet can also give birth to young alive lizards. They are one of the few animals that can do both.
  • The Glass Lizard eats a lot of rodents and insects which helps keep the numbers down in their ecosystem.
