This assignment is from last year due to the fact I have not done many things that I can present at this moment.
In this assignment, the purpose was to make your own organism and explain why it is a living thing that follows the 6 essentials of living things.
Growth And Development
Acheronians age very rapidly in the first four years of their life, reaching maturity by the age of six. After these six years they are normally around the height of a yellow lab on its hind legs, and growing to around the height of 7’3” when standing up. The females are normally slimmer and quicker minded, making them normally the leaders for the pack.
Response to Surroundings
Acheronians’ responses can vary, a male acheronian is usually the hunting type, and its reflexes are very fast. While an untrained male acheronian is usually the builder type, reacting quickly to situations that could physically endanger the pack, such as a cave in or flood. Female Acheronians are very similar in responses, just they’re stronger than the males when trained. Female Acheronians are naturally faster than the males. If the pack is entirely one gender, a selected few will change their gender to cope. If the area a pack is in is in a drought of some sort, they would eat plants with more water than normal. If there is a flood, they will look for the highest peak they can reach. Acheronians are normally the top predator in areas where there is a lot of animals, though other predators will fight them for dominance.
The acheronians are heterotrophs, they can’t make their own food. The way acheronians get their energy from the things they eat, they can either eat meat or plants, depending on the area. If an area has a lot of animals and little plants, they will hunt and eat the animals. If an area has a lot of plants and little animals, they will eat the plants. A lot of their energy goes into fueling their bodies needs, since their so big they are easy to wear out, they have to eat giant meals just to fuel themselves enough to last another few days, their metabolisms are relatively slow, but they have an organ that the food goes through to boost the energy output, though this revolves around the situation, in a flood or natural disaster, they digest food faster, due to their increased heart rate. In a normal situation such as a fight, they will still produce the normal amount of energy, and try to get the fight over as quickly as possible due to this loss of energy.
The brain cells are found from under their thick skulls and down their spines, the number of brain cells changes depending on the gender, females have more than the males. They have around 14,000,000 skin cells.
Acheronians reproduce sexually, though both genders can house a child. Though, if the child’s parents are the same gender, there is a higher chance of the child being that gender at birth.
Chemicals of Life
Acheronians have the same compounds as all other things. Water, proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, and nucleic acids.
I chose the name of “Acheronians” due to my fascination with space, “Acheron” is the name of a crater on Mars, as well as other variants relating to a Greek God of Pain. Acheron is also the name of a river in Greece; which I suspect is named after the God.
