The cave is located in Romania, near the Black Sea. The cave was cut off from the surface more than five million years ago. Of the 48 animal species identified, 33 species had not yet been discovered! No animals in the cave have backbones. All the animals are blind. There are leeches, centipedes, spiders, and earthworms. Bacteria are at the bottom of the food chain. Then, other animals eat the bacteria and other animals. How do the bacteria get their energy? They do not get it from light energy. They get it from chemical energy. Hydrogen sulfide rises into the water from deep within the earth. From the story, you can tell that: A. hydrogen sulfide provides light energy B. some food chains are based on chemical energy C. scientists know about all the animals on Earth D. chemical energy is the basis for all food chains On the map, find Romania and the Black Sea. Name two other countries that border the Black Sea. _______________________________________________ A new frog was discovered in 1993. The frog was discovered on a remote mountain in the Cuban rain forest. This frog tied with a frog found in 1971 in Brazil for the smallest frog in the world. How small is this frog? It can sit on the middle of a dime! It is two-fifths of an inch (10 mm) in length. All animals have a special place in ecosystems. It is thought that most predators, such as snakes, which usually eat frogs don't eat this type. Why not? They are too small. Instead, centipedes and spiders may eat them. About 90 percent of Cuba's rain forests have been cut down or burned. What do you think will happen to this frog if the practice continues? _________________________ On the map, find Cuba and Brazil. On a separate piece of paper describe how to get from Cuba to Brazil. In your instructions, include compass directions, hemispheres, and names of bodies of water and countries you have to fly over, cross through, or pass by.
