Flora and fauna of georgia

  1. 1. Flora and Fauna of Georgia By Collin Keigans
  2. 2. Live Oaks The live oak is called the live oak because it stays alive through out the winter. The southern live oak is actually the state tree of Georgia. These trees are very common in Georgia and are spread out over a distance of the United States. There's actually a live oak in my hometown that is 329 years old, its name is “The Big Oak”
  3. 3. Cherokee Rose The Cherokee rose is a very pretty flower. It has white petals and a yellow center. This is also the state flower because of the Cherokee tribe living here and There is an urban legend that these flowers were made from the trail of tears.
  4. 4. Oak-Leaf Hydrangea The cool thing about this plant is that it can survive all four seasons, and even droughts. This plant grows really well in Georgia because it grows naturally under the shade of many trees such as the live oak.
  5. 5. Green Tree Frog The green tree frog is a very common animal in Georgia. The are everywhere from west Virginia all the way to Florida. They are nocturnal meaning they only come out at night. These little frogs can be found easily after rain.
  6. 6. Gopher Tortoise The gopher tortoise is the state reptile of Georgia. This tortoise can grow up to a foot long and weigh 25 pounds. This turtle burrows its self in dry areas in states all around Georgia. This animal is important to Georgia because it is one of the 8 state animals
  7. 7. Brown Thrasher The brown thrasher is important because it is the state bird. This bird only lives in Georgia and Texas. The brown thrasher is usually brown with a white stomach. These birds are different from others because they tend to stay and make nests near the ground.
  8. 8. Right Whale These monstrous animals can grow up to 18 m. The Right Whale is also a state animal. They have rough patches on their heads that make them easily identifiable. These whales also like staying near the coast unlike most other whales.
  9. 9. Manganese Manganese is an important chemical element. It is used in making stainless steel and many other things. It is common in many other minerals. This element has an atomic number of twenty five.
  10. 10. Chattahoochee River This main water way affects Georgia because it supplies a big amount of running water. It forms at the Alabama-Georgia border. The river is originally formed from a spring in the blue ridge mountains.
