The evolution of the Booted Eagle and the Blackberry.

Brown Clawed Eagle ( Brown aquila unguiculatum )

Sizes of the Eagle from present day - year 3000

The size of the eagle in 2016 was 120 cm in wingspan. In 2600 it was 150 cm and in 3000 it became 180 cm in wingspan.


What does it eat?

The Brown Clawed Eagle eats Stag Beetles, Olive Baboons, and Jamaican Boas. It is an Omnivore and a Secondary Consumer.


How will it catch/get food and water?

The Brown Clawed Eagle will catch it's food with its talons and claws on both of its wings. It's beak is also razor sharp making it easier to grasp prey and break it apart.


How will it keep warm/cool?

It has multiple layers of feathers that keep in heat. It also builds nests that store in heat during the cold weather.


Where will it take shelter?

It takes shelter in its nest high up in the trees. The trees give them a distance from the ground predators and offer better protection. The nests give them protection from the intense cold weather.


How will it protect/defend itself from attackers?

It can fly away and retreat if under attack. It could also attack back with its razor sharp beak, talons, and claws.


How will it protect/defend its young from attackers?

It will protect their young by fighting of any predators lurking around or by sending signals to its children warning them that it isn't safe.

Blacknut Berry ( Niger nucis baca )

Sizes of the Berry from present day - year 3000

The size of the berry in 2016 was 1-2 inches in size of the fruit. In year 2600 it was 1-2 in and in year 3000 it became 1.5-3 in in fruit size.


What does it eat?

The Blacknut Berry does not consume anything other than sunlight and water. It is a primary producer not a consumer.


How will it catch/get food and water?

For food the plants search for sunlight and start growing toward the sunniest region. The plant also grows large roots that go searching for puddles of water or water bodies.


How will it keep warm/cool?

It has a nutshell that keeps the berry in the same temperature. The nutshell helps keep a stable temperature to carry out the plant's functions.


Where will it take shelter?

It takes shelter in its nut shell. The nutshell gives it a protective layer that is tough to break open.


How will it protect/defend itself from attackers?

It defends itself with its thorns along the stem and its hard nutshell. The thorns prick any consumer who tries to eat it.


How will it protect/defend its young from attackers?

It cannot protect their young. The shell is the only protection. I the shell is broken the berry has non digestible seeds to ensure that the seeds can grow more berries again.
