1) DISCUSSION QUESTION

Part 1: Post a Response

In California, Pacific Northern rattlesnakes prey on California ground squirrels. Their relationship is a great example of co-evolution. Read the article about their relationship found at https://news.osu.edu/how-is-rattlesnake-venom-like-fine-wine-both-have-regional-varieties/, and then address the following questions:

  • Explain why the relationship between these two species is considered an example of co-evolution.
  • What did you find most interesting or significant about how the rattlesnake population adapts to the squirrel’s defenses against its venom?

2) PEER REVIEW #1 (TIFFANY)

Co-evolution is the process of evolutionary change that occurs in a pair of species. Rattlesnakes and squirrels that live in the same area seem not to co-existent with on another. Rattlesnakes are more prone to attack a squirrel in their community than one that doesn’t habitat in their location. Researchers found that there was a resistance in venom to squirrels of a different locations than that of the same location as the snakes.

That you could drive 20 to 30 miles down the road and find a lot of variation in the venom. Rattlers were best suited to killing their squirrels neighbors rather than squirrels that live elswhere.

3) PEER REVIEW #2 (SHAKIA)

Hi Professor and Class,

Explain why the relationship between these two species is considered an example of co-evolution.

Co-evolution happened with these two species the prey (California Adult ground squirrel) evolved in response to the predator (Pacific North rattlesnakes) to avoid or discourage predation.

•The actions of the California Adult ground squirrels and the actions of Pacific North rattlesnakes challenged natural surroundings. Adult California ground squirrels have created fortifications resistance to a rattlesnakes venom and rattlesnakes tailor their venom to ensure it’s lethal for the near by squirrels.

What did you find most interesting or significant about how the rattlesnake population adapts to the squirrel’s defenses against its venom? What I find most interesting about how the rattlesnake population adapts to the squirrel’s defenses against its venom is how rattlesnakes tailor their venom to ensure it is as lethal as possible to the squirrels living in their immediate area.
