Drawing at the leftShows the structures of snailsandDo You Know?Some snails live on land and some live inwater. The body of the snail is soft butsnails have their shellas theirperfect home.
Each snail can lay anaverage of 85 eggs andthey hatch in 2 to 4weeksEggs are buried with amixture of soil andmucusColour of eggs :Pink , White, Brown , YellowPicture above shows the eggs of the snail.
While the snail is gliding, it’stop of its foot producesmucous which allows itto slide withouthurting itself. Theycould cross a razor withoutfeeling the pain!
Picture above shows the cell diagram ofSpirogra .spPicture above shows the water condition ofour site -> Presence of AlgaeThere are about 6,000species of green algae.Many green algae aresingle cell.Species name : Spirogra .spIt floats passively inwater and has no movementor locomotion of its ownSpirally twistedchloroplast, that’s whyit’s called the “Spirogra”the longest in plantkingdom
1. the movement of thecontents of one cell (themale) into the other (thefemale)2. Fertilization occurs,resulting in a diploidzygospore (single-headed arrow)3. A new cell is formed•reproduce both sexually and rarely asexually•Spirogyra simply undergoes intercalary mitosis to form newfilaments.
