He ranges in size from five to nine inches Long with another to inches added for a slender furless Tail he is a relative of the Monkey clan and As such he is a born climber. His name comes from the extra Long tarsal Bones found in his ankle. His tiny fingers and toes end in a larger than Normal pad that is grooved like the tread on an automobile tire. This gives him extra holding Power As he jumps from tree to tree. He has Long claws on his second and third fingers and toes with which he uses to Groom himself the tarsier s dominating facial features Are a pair of super size round eyes and Large Mickey mouse ears. His Saucer like eyes Are Handy since he is a creature of the night. His big ears catch faint sounds to help him locate his insect prey. A Small pug like nose rests above a tiny elfin Mouth and Chin. His head which can turn almost All the Way around sits upon a delicate body that is covered with woolly Golden Brown fur. Very Little is known about the tarsier s private life since he spends the Daylight hours tucked away in his secluded abode sleeping. Mother tarsier gives birth to a single infant which enters the world in a ready to go fashion the baby is born with its eyes open he a covered with fur and capable of a climbing and making Short hops when Mother goes leapfrogging through the Forest baby is right with her hanging on for dear life. Tarsier Are the smallest members of the primate Monkey clan their ancestors can be traced Back some 60 million years. Close relatives include the marmosets lemurs and a Squirrel like animal called the Aye ave More Distant relatives Are the monkeys and the great apes Andy sends an extra generous award to Lucy Lockett age to of Santa Maria calif., for her question do Birds have ears Birds have ears and they work very Well of course we done to often see them because most of our feathered friends Don t have outer ears like we do. Actually the ability to hear varies greatly from one species to another but experts Tell us that Many Birds hear better than we do. The Chaffinch for example can detect sounds up to 29,000 cycles per second while a Young healthy human s Range is from 16,000 to 20,000 cycles per second. Birds need to hear Well for Many reasons they communicate constantly with each other by Means of varied and Complex chirps squawks screeches and clucks. During periods of courtship nesting and danger the air is punctuated with Bird language of every Type. Then too a Birds hearing sounds of prey can determine whether he will eat that night or not. A barn owl for example can locate prey in total darkness using Only his keen sense of hearing Andy sends a Complete 20-volume set of the Merit students encyclopedia to Tony Elia age 13, of Niagara Falls ont., Canada for his question do both hands have same fingerprints the fingerprints seem to go hand in hand with murder mysteries and whodunit movies. When the use of fingerprints began however it was Only As a Means of identification. Potters artists merchants and perhaps even Kings used a thumb print As an indisputable signature. A fingerprint is the impression of the inside of the Finger Between the tip and the first joint. If you look at your fingertips you can see the tiny ridges that Loop twist and turn every which Way. Glands beneath the surface of our skin secrete an Oil to keep our skin soft. When you press your fingers against a solid surface the Oil is left behind in the patterns formed by your fingerprints. Sir William Herschel is Given credit for being the first to devise a workable method of fingerprint identification. In the 1850s he was a British government official in Bengal. India. He sought to use the thumb prints of illiterate workers As a Means of positive identification. In those Days people often pretended to be someone else so they could collect wages they Hadnot earned. In time the idea of fingerprinting More properly called dactyl Graphy developed into a scientific system. Sir Francis Galton founded the present system of fingerprint identification in the Early 1900s. His system was later refined and perfected by sir . Henry a commissioner of Scotland Yard of London. Today the Henry system is the most commonly used. F fingerprints can be broken Down into three Large groups of patterns a the Arch the Loop and the whorl. Each Large group bears the same general characteristics. The Loop and Arch groups Are broken Down further into two smaller groups each while the whorl group is broken Down into four smaller groups. This makes eight groups in All and from Here on it really gets complicated. You can begin to understand How detailed it gets when you realize that out of the billions of people in the world no two share the same fingerprints. What s More the prints on your right hand Are different from those on your left. Multiply the world population by to and you can come pretty close to the total number of different fingerprints that exist. About three quarters of the american population have their fingerprints on record open daily 10-10 sundays i wed., thurs., fbi., sat. Navy Hull maintenance c ,. Technician 3rd c.
