Hi everyone, today we looked at ecosystems.
An ecosystem is almost like a small world. I was researching the limestone caves ecosystem. The Limestone cave’s ecosystem mainly consists of lizards, snakes, birds and bats. There is one thing I found particularly interesting and that was the name for Animals that live in caves, The word is troglobites. I also learnt that limestone is a soluble rock meaning it dissolves in water, it gets most of its water from surrounding insoluble rocks.
There were many other interesting facts I could share but one in particular is that limestone is made of 50% Calcium carbonate, 25% water and 25% carbon Dioxide.
So if you have any interesting facts about ecosystems why not tell us?
