Animal Life Cycles. © Contributed by Leanne Guenther Animals that Grow Up (Simple Life Cycle): Most animals including fish, mammals, reptiles and birds have very simple life cycles: they are born (either alive from their mother or hatched from eggs) they grow up These animals have three stages -- before birth, young and adult.

Animal Life Cycles

The young are typically similar to the parent, just smaller. Amphibians: Amphibians, like frogs and newts, have a slightly more complicated life cycle. They are born (either alive from their mother or hatched from eggs) they spend their childhood under water, breathing with gills they grow into adults and move to the land, breathing with lungs Animals that Undergo a Complete Metamorphosis: Insects.

The mammalian life cycle begins when a male's sperm cell fertilizes a female's egg cell by mating.

What is the life cycle of a mammal?

The length of the incubation period in the womb varies based on the species. The fetus develops and grows inside the womb for the entirety of the incubation period. Most mammals give birth to live young, as opposed to laying eggs. Like the incubation period, the length of each stage of the life cycle varies based on the species. Newborn mammals continue to grow and develop once they are out of the womb. The adolescent stage of the mammalian life cycle involves the development of reproductive organs. Following the adolescent stage is adulthood. Adulthood is followed by old age and the eventual death of the mammal as it declines in health and physical strength.

Ladybug Life Cycle – Kids Growing Strong

Ladybugs have special organs in their feet to help them smell. They use their antennae to touch, smell and taste. Females lay their tiny eggs in yellow clusters under a leaf or stem, often near a colony of aphids (tiny garden pests that damage many plants.) Within a week, the eggs hatch into alligator-shaped larvae that start gobbling up aphids, tiny worms and a variety of insect eggs. Both larvae and the adults are beneficial predators in the garden. Lycaenid butterflies and ants. Many Australian members of the butterfly family Lycaenidae (Blues, Coppers, Hairstreaks, Azures) have an unusual association with ants: they have specialized organs or glands that secrete substances that may attract, appease or reward ants.

Lycaenid butterflies and ants

While not all lycaenid butterflies need ants, certain members of this family can only complete their life cycle in association with particular ant species. Each butterfly species is usually associated with a single ant species. The extent of the association varies. Lycaenid butterfly larva Photographer: B Hulbert © B Hulbert Standard Common Name Lycaenid butterflies and ants Distribution Members of the Family Lycaenidae are mainly found in the tropics.
