    Day 2
    Today I got up from sleeping on a hard ice floor with only a few blankets so it was pretty chilly but I am looking forward to later today. I am going o observe more macaroni penguins in there natural habitat. This is much better than watching them in a zoo. They have way more interaction with each other. Also other animals are in there habitat too so it very interesting to watch them in there natural habitat. There are some predators that try to attack them but they stick it out they may not come out very well but that’s the cycle of life.

    GPS Tracking Chip
    There is a GPS tracking system that uses a chip it can be implanted into any animal underneath the skin. There are also ear tags so if you don’t want to “hurt” the animal they can be located by radio frequency identification. By a hand held scanner or a huge scanner. These chips have become particularly useful if you have lost a pet. Most people that put these chip on animals are kennels, breeder, brokers, and trainers. But I also think that this could be used in the tracking of penguins because it is such a small chip. And I guess if you track every single macaroni penguin in the wild I’m pretty sure that they would have no were to hid because they are being tracked so there for they can keep a better eye on the macaroni penguins.

    I am going to try and find some examples for you but It may be kind of hard….
    This video is more about the chip and not about the virus

    Observation Journal
    Day 1- I just got to the observation spot and need to make a camp site, I might see a fox when I am setting up the camp. I might set out food to attract them and a video camera to see what happens at night. I just hope no other animals come unless it’s a fox.

    Using the Research:
    What is over population and how does it effect the red fox? Over population is when a animal population is to big for its habitat. It effects the red fox because if they are over populated there food will run out and they could starve. Or it could help a preditor by giving them a bigger food sorce. It could also effect there water sorce by decresing it that will effect everything in that area or habitat.

    Day 2- I just got up and checked on the food or what was left of it. So now I am watching the video recording. I think I saw a fox but I couldn’t tell so I might set the food closer to the camera. I am going to look around the woods near the camp site with a camera, maybe I can get a picture of a fox. I can see meany animals around but not a fox mabey I am not in the right place, so might set up motion detecting cameras with night vision by some food in a cage so i can see what i trap at night.

    ...
    My fellow Coyote researcher is Dr. Stanley D. Gehrt he is a Associate Professor and Wildlife Extension Specialist. He works for the Ohio State University on the Cook County Coyote project. A connection between him and I is that we both like to watch and take notes about how they live, and where they live. But a difference is that he wants to nurture and protect the coyote population, why I want to hunt and kill coyotes.
    Limiting Factors:
    Some limiting factors for the coyote in the South-East region of Iowa are: Hunting, trapping, water pollution, land destruction, and cars. The way hunting is a limiting factor for the coyote is that if they are hunted year round, the population will go way down do to over hunting and not enough time to reproduce. The way trapping will affect the coyote population is close to hunting but instead of instantly killing them they could get caught in a trap, and in the small chance they get out, they will be weak and die off. Water pollution is another limiting because if humans are polluting the water that coyotes drink they will either die, or have pups that have birth deffects. Land destruction would be very affective to the coyote population too, because if people want to live or build buildings where the coyotes live, then they will have no where to live and starve to death. Cars is a big limiting factor too because if coyotes are trying to move around, or follow prey, and they stumble onto the road they could get seriously hurt or most likely die.

    Today we say the Lion. He was huge. We couldn’t get really close because it could attack at anytime. We didn't see it for very long. It started to run away we followed it untill we decided to stop. I found out that they are fast to get away from hunters. Without speed they would all die. They have short fur. They have the large manes to show there size. There claws and teeth are razor sharp. They travel in packs of 13 Lions.
