content writer needed for an educational site on animals - about 2 paragraphs, researches from a few sources and compiled in original words (no direct copying) for each of the 400 animals. A web interface will be provided for the writer for input.
To be more precise in number of words about 300 words for 400 animals. The first paragraph should be general stuff and then the second paragraph should include information special adaptations of the animal- that is physical and other characteristics that are special to this animal that are used for its survival. Given below is an an example of what I am looking (eg: alligator). If you are interested please submit a sample for the animal Wombat exactly in the same format as Alligator given below. Also, I am looking for writing geared towards high school students, something that is interesting and talks about the essential stuff, not like the toucan beak is 15 cm long, (no boring stuff like that). For adaptation, it is important that the person understands what it is.
The word alligator is derived from the Spanish work “el lagarto” meaning ”the lizard”. There are two types of alligators, the American Alligator and the Chinese Alligator. The American alligator is native to the southeastern United States and the Chinese Alligator is native to the Yangtze River Basin in China. Alligators are cold-blooded four-legged, carnivorous reptiles that live in fresh to brackish water, in swamps, marshes, canals, and lakes. Alligators and their kin are modern dinosaurs, having existed virtually unchanged for the past 65 million years. Alligators are part of the crocodilian family which consists of the alligators, caimans, crocodiles, and gharials. Alligators eat their food whole and their prey consists of snails, frogs, insects, fishes, turtles, snakes, waterfowl, small mammals, and even smaller alligators.
Special features and adaptations
The whole body is covered with large, strong, ossified, horny plates as a protective covering.
They have conical teeth suited for holding the preys but cannot be used for grinding as alligators swallow the food without chewing.
It is an excellent swimmer and uses its hindfeet as oars for swimming.
The nostrils and eyes are near the top of the head, to keep off water from them when it is submerged. It normally lies in the water with only the top of the head showing.
