Katydid 2

  1. 1. Now you can hear my story!<br />The Katydid<br />By Alex Anacki <br />Grade 5<br />1<br />
  2. 2. The Amazon Rainforest<br />Receives about 6 ft. 7 in. of rain per year.<br />The layers are the overstory, canopy, understory, shrub layer, and forest floor.<br />It is located in the upper section of Brazil.<br />The Amazon holds an important place in our ecosystem. Without it, we wouldn’t have some very important animals and scientists couldn’t be as knowledgeable about some subjects.<br />The katydid is located in treetops.<br />2<br />
  3. 3. Home Sweet Home<br />Their scientific name is Tettigoniid.<br />Katydids are most common in the Amazon, but can also be found in your local park! Although it is found in treetops, so you may not see it as often.<br />It is nocturnal.<br />It ranges from 1-5 inches.<br />It weighs only a few ounces.<br />3<br />
  4. 4. Team Work<br />The katydid eats leaves on the rainforest floor, cleaning up the ground just slightly, one nibble at a time.<br />The katydid is a big part of the food chain. Every insect counts!<br />The katydid is also a huge protein source for some animals.<br />4<br />PROTEIN!!!<br />
  5. 5. Enemies<br /> The katydid is eaten by wasps, ants, praying mantises, and tree frogs. Another predator is the monkey. Birds and amphibians, however, are the biggest predators.<br />5<br />
  6. 6. Survival<br />The katydid blends in with leaves, camouflaging itself from enemies.<br />The katydid bites when handled roughly.<br />In defense, katydids use their coloration as camo. If they are discovered by a predator, regardless of color, katydids will take flight to escape.<br />6<br />
  7. 7. YUM!<br />The katydid enjoys a feast of leaves, flowers, stems, and fruits. <br />Sometimes the katydid will eat other insects.<br />It lives near a bounty of food, so it has no trouble finding dinner.<br />It is eaten by arachnids or insects like the Rabid Wolf Spider, not to be confused with the common wolf spider. That is eaten by the wild turkey.<br />7<br />
  8. 8. Nursery Rhymes<br />The baby katydid (nymph) undergoes simple metamorphosis.<br />The life span is less than a year because it never survives the winter. Only eggs do. <br />Katydids are abandoned after hatching.<br />They reach adult stage in 3-4 months.<br />It is unknown how many eggs a katydid lays at once.<br />8<br />
  9. 9. Fun Fact!<br />After molting, katydids eat their shed skin to leave no trace of existence to predators.<br />Katydids are capable of flight, but prefer not to. When they do fly, it is more of a downward spiral.<br />9<br />
