My information report

Title: Mammals

Macro: (1 general idea about the topic)
Mammals have been alive for millions of years, the first Mammals were alive 83 million years ago.

Macro: (1 general idea about the topic)
Mammals live in all sorts of places, including the ocean, underground and on land

Link sentence: (specifically what 3 things will I tell people about?)
Now, I am going to tell you more about the habitats of mammals

In the Ocean
(3+ main ideas from my Description bubble)
Marine Mammals rely on the Ocean for their existence. Marine mammals breathe air, which means they must come up to the surface to breathe otherwise they will drown, but marine mammals can stay underwater for a long time. The sperm whale will stay underwater for up to 90 minutes at a time, while Dolphins and other whales can stay underwater for around 20 minutes.Image result for beached marine mammals

Marine Mammals are warm-blooded. In order to contain their body heat, they consume large quantities of calories and develop a thick layer of fat or blubber to keep their organs from freezing in cold environments. Marine mammals have streamlined bodies designed to reduce the water when they are swimming, they also have specialized lungs and muscles designed to store oxygen.

Marine Mammals give birth to their Offspring. Unlike fish and other aquatic animals, marine mammals do not lay eggs, instead they carry their children in their Womb until the baby is born. They give birth to live young Most marine Mammals only give birth to one calf or pup at a time. Usually they are never able to give birth to twins or large litters.

Maine Mammals produce Milk. marine mammals have mammary glands that produce milk which they use to feed their child. The milk is often filled with fat and lots of Nutrients to help their child grow and develop. Marine mammals feed off the mother's milk when they are young.

Underground Mammals
(3+ main ideas from my Description bubble)
Some mammals also live underground. Some mammals live underground most of the time or all of the time. Some mammals also hunt for food underground such as the Gopher. The Gopher spends most of its life underground and they hunt for food underground.

The benefits of living underground. Living underground has many advantages such as hiding from predators, sheltering from extreme temperatures and from overly dry climates.

Terrestrial Mammals
(3+ main ideas from my Description bubble)Image result for terrestrial mammals swinging from tree
Terrestrial mammals spend all or part of their time on land. Terrestrial Mammals can walk, run, fly, jump, climb, hop, swing and dig. Example of some Terrestrial mammals include Elephants, Cheetahs, Giraffes and Koalas.
