Tranostriroo By: Ella weems

The tranotstriroo has a ostrich like head that helps it defend itself and get food. It also digs holes to lay its eggs then to leave them there. The transostriroo is an omnivore which means it eats insects and plants and the ostrich head contributes to that. But it doesn't have the neck that's like an ostrich so when its retreating it can curl up into a ball.

The tranostriroo has a body and legs like a tarantula. The legs help with climbing and making webs for its prey and can move very fast to escape quickly from predators. The body helps with scaring away and attacking its predators because of the hair like a tarantula has, gets irritated easily so that can be used as a weapon for defending itself and also the body has determined that it will lay multiple eggs.

The tranostriroo has a kangaroo like tail and uses it for a weapon when defending its self because the hair that a tranostriroo has is prickly so when its irritated it can be lethal and it can be used as another leg if the tranostriroo loses one of its original legs.

The tranostriroo lives in the desert and lives in a hole. The climate in the desert ranges around 50* and 2.50mm of rain per year. There isn't a lot of water in the desert but a tranostriroo can go a long period of time without water and usually gets the water it needs to survive in desert climates from the plants it eats but it does also eats insects. So it's niche is that it controls the plant and insect population.

Some of the tranostriroos behavioral adaptations is that when it feels like it's under attack it rolls up into a ball to irritate its hair to use as a weapon or it digs a hole. Another one is it lays a ton of eggs and leaves them and doesn't take care of them. Some physical adaptations are the tranostriroo has tarantula like hair to protect its self from animals and a ostrich like beak that helps get food and defends its self.

The tranostriroos place on the food chain is secondary consumer because it eats both plants and insects, which means it's an omnivore and is a prey rather than a predator because of its size.

How humans have affected tranostriroos is that they cut down trees which is a loss of food and that humans hunt tranostriroos down to sell them as exotic pets.

The tranostriroo is an arthropod because of the tarantula like body which has an exoskeleton which is like a shell so it protects the body.

One day an explorer was looking through the desert to help animals if they are in trouble. The explorer found an iguana and realized it needed to get unstuck from a hole in a log. He brought the iguana to a bush to put him under it, but to discover a new species. He reached down there right as the creature crawled out. He wasn't sure what it was or what exactly to call it but was going to figure it out. He finally decided to call the creature a Tranostriroo because it had features like a tarantula, ostrich, and kangaroo.
