What kind of snake is black with orange ring around neck non posiones that lives in penna.

The ring-necked snake or ringneck snake, Diadophis punctatus, is a species of colubrid snake found throughout much of the United States, central Mexico, and southeastern Canada. Ring-necked snakes are secretive, nocturnal snakes, so are rarely seen during the day time. They are slightly venomous, but their nonaggressive nature and small, rear-facing fangs pose little threat to humans who wish to handle them. They are best known for their unique defense posture of curling up their tails, exposing their bright red-orange posterior, ventralsurface when threatened. Ring-necked snakes are believed to be fairly abundant throughout most of their range, though no scientific evaluation supports this theory. Scientific research is lacking for the ring-necked snake, and more in-depth investigations are greatly needed.[3] It is the only species within the genusDiadophis, and currently 14 subspecies are identified, but many herpetologists question the morphologically based classifications.

Taxonomic classification of the traditional farm animals

Taxonomists recognize three domains: Archaea, Bacteria and Eukarya.
The next circle in would be labeled Kingdom. Taxonomists recognize six kingdoms: Eubacteria, Archaebacteria, Protista, Fungi, Plantae, and Animalia. Next in would be Phylum then Class then Order then Genus and finally Species in the smallest innermost circle. Each circle represents a taxonomic rank and the ranks grow smaller but more specific as one moves from Domain to Species. Such a classification system is known as a superdomain system.

Could you give me the classification of phylom sacordina

The phylum Rhizopoda has naked and shelled amoebas. They tend to ingest food and creep toward food. They move using Pseudopodia, which are bulges of cytoplasm. Naked amoebas use all of their body for pseudopod movement. Usually half is used in shelled amoebas; the other half grips the shell.
Amoebas breathe using their entire cell membrane that is constantly immersed in water. Because they live in water, they have no problem keeping it wet. But it does have one drawback. Excess water often crosses into the cytosol. All have one contractile vacuole that expels excess water. This contraction is powered by contracting cytosol.
The nuclei of amoebas do not have chromosomes. They also persist during cell division. The nuclear membrane pinches in two during telophase. Amoebas also do not go through meiosis. Amoebas have one or more nucleoli.
The food scources vary in rhizopoda. Some consume bacteria. Others are detritivores and eat dead organic material. Still others eat other protists. They extend a pair of pseudopodia around food. They fuse to make a food vacuole which then fuses with a lysosome to add digestive chemicals. Undigestied food is expelled at the cell membrane.
Amoebas use pseudopodia to move and feed. They are powered by flexible microfilaments near the membrane. Microfilaments are at least 50% of the cytoskeleton. The other parts are more stiff and are composed of intermediate filaments and macrotubules. These are not used in amoeboid movement, but are stiff skeletons on which organelles are supported or can move on.
The shells of amoebas are often composed of calcium ar other materials. The proteins or materials are synthesised in the cell and exported just outside the cell membrane. The shells are stiff and flexible, but not too much of either trait.
Amoebas seem to have connections with two phyla of the lineage funguslike protists. The two phyla are myxomycota (plasmodial slime molds), and acrasiomycota (cellular slime molds). These two phyla use amoeboid movement in their feeding stage. One is basically a giant multinucleate amoeba, while the other lives solitary until food runs out; in which a colony of these functions as a unit. Myxomycotes use amoeboid gametes, as well. They definitely have a connection.

Diversity [ Back to top ] They have appeared in a number of different groups. Some cells in multicellular animals may be amoeboid, for instance human white blood cells, which consume pathogens. Many protists also exist as individual amoeboid cells, or take such a form at some point in their life-cycle. The most famous such organism is Amoeba proteus; the name amoeba is variously used to describe its close relatives, other organisms similar to it, or the amoeboids in general.
As amoebas themselves are polyphyletic and subject to some imprecision in definition, the term "Amoeboid" does not provide identification of an organism, and is better understood as description of locomotion.
When used in the broader sense, the term can include the following groups: Acanthamoeba, Acrasis, Adelphamoeba, Amoeba, Astramoeba, Balamuthia, Cashia, Chaos, Clydonella, Dactylamoeba, Dientamoeba, Dinamoeba, Discamoeba, Echinamoeba, Endamoeba, Entamoeba, Filamoeba, Flabelulla, Flagellipodium, Flamella, Gephyramoeba, Gibbodiscus, Glaeseria, Gocevia, Gruberella, Gyromitus, Hartmannella, Heteramoeba, Hollandella, Histomonas, Hyalodiscus, Hydramoeba, Hyperamoeba, Iodamoeba, Korotnevella, Labyrinthula, Learamoeba, Leptomyxa, Lingulamoeba, Macropharyngomonas, Malamoeba, Mastigamoeba, Mastigella, Mastigina, Mayorella, Metachaos, Micronuclearia, Monopylocystis, Naegleria, Neoparamoeba, Neovahlkampfia, Nollandia, Nuclearia, Oscillosignum, Paragocevia, Paramoeba, Paratetramitus, Paravahlkampfia, Parvamoeba, Pelomyxa, Pernina, Pfiesteria, Polychaos, Pontifex, Phreatamoeba, Platyamoeba, Protoacanthamoeba, Protonaegleria, Psalteriomonas, Pseudomastigamoeba, Plaesiobystra, Rhizamoeba, Rosculus, Rugipes, Saccamoeba, Sappinia, Sawyeria, Stachyamoeba, Stereomyxa, Striamoeba, Striolatus, Stygamoeba, Subulamoeba, Tetramitus, Thecamoeba, Theratromyxa, Trichamoeba, Trichosphaerium, Trienamoeba, Trimastigamoeba, Unda, Vahlkampfia, Vampyrella, Vampyrellium, Vannella, Vexillifera, and Willaertia.[2]

Classification [ Back to top ] Amoeboids may be divided into several morphological categories based on the form and structure of the pseudopods. Those where the pseudopods are supported by regular arrays of microtubules are called actinopods, and forms where they are not are called rhizopods, further divided into lobose, filose, and reticulose amoebae. There is also a strange group of giant marine amoeboids, the xenophyophores, that do notfall into any of these categories.
Most amoeboid are now grouped in Amoebozoa or Rhizaria.[3]

  • Lobose pseudopods (Lobosea): Lobose pseudopods are blunt, and there may be one or several on a cell, which is usually divided into a layer of clear ectoplasm surrounding more granular endoplasm.

  • Filose pseudopods (Filosa): Filose pseudopods are narrow and tapering. The vast majority of filose amoebae, including all those that produce shells, are placed within the Cercozoa together with various flagellates that tend to have amoeboid forms. The naked filose amoebae also includes vampyrellids.
  • Reticulose pseudopods (Endomyxa): Reticulose pseudopods are cytoplasmic strands that branch and merge to form a net. They are found most notably among the Foraminifera, a large group of marine protists that generally produce multi-chambered shells. There are only a few sorts of naked reticulose amoeboids, notably the gymnophryids, and their relationships are not certain.
  • Actinopods: Actinopods are divided into the radiolaria and heliozoa. The radiolaria are mostly marine protists with complex internal skeletons, including central capsules that divide the cells into granular endoplasm and frothy ectoplasm that keeps them buoyant. The heliozoa include both freshwater and marine forms that use their axopods to capture small prey, and only have simple scales or spines for skeletal elements. Both groups appear to be polyphyletic.

OtherThe term "amoeboid" has in the past has sometimes been used in a more broad sense, including certain groups not currently included in Amoebozoa or Rhizaria:
  • The Percolozoa, includes protists that can transform between amoeboid and flagellate forms.
  • Nucleariids appear to be close relatives of animals and fungi.

Pathogenic Interactions With Other Organisms [ Back to top ] Some amoeboids can infect other organisms pathogenically (causing disease):
  • Entamoeba histolytica is the cause of amoebiasis, or amoebic dysentery"
  • Naegleria fowleri (the "brain-eating amoeba") is a fresh-water-native species that can be fatal to humans if introduced through the nose.
  • Acanthamoeba can cause amoebic keratitis and encephalitis in humans.
  • Balamuthia mandrillaris is the cause of (often fatal) primary amoebic meningoencephalitis

Taxonomy [ Back to top ] The Phylum Sarcodina is further organized into finer groupings including:
  • Class (1): Actinopoda
  • Species: ZipcodeZoo has pages for 1,659 species and subspecies in the Phylum Sarcodina.

Classes [ Back to top ]
Actinopoda Amoeboids are life-forms characterized by their irregularity of shape. [more]
At least 1,628 species and subspecies belong to the Class Actinopoda.

Question written again i am a thing,teachers hate me,cow likes me, monkey eat me.i am 9 letter word. _o_ _ m_ _ y_ who am i ?

This answer is from another source,
tautonyms = the clues all refer to words that repeat in a name or classification.
1. Teachers hate me : botany no longer allows the same genus and species name
2. Cows like me : the American bison is bison bison
3. Monkeys eat me : the term for "jujube" (a fruit-bearing tree) is Ziziphus zizyphus.

Hope this helps, good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.
