FISH IN A TREE – Lynda Mullaly Hunt


The author of the beloved One for the Murphys gives readers an emotionally-charged, uplifting novel that will speak to anyone who’s ever thought there was something wrong with them because they didn’t fit in.

Everybody is smart in different ways. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its life believing it is stupid.

Ally has been smart enough to fool a lot of smart people. Every time she lands in a new school, she is able to hide her inability to read by creating clever yet disruptive distractions. She is afraid to ask for help; after all, how can you cure dumb? However, her newest teacher Mr. Daniels sees the bright, creative kid underneath the trouble maker. With his help, Ally learns not to be so hard on herself and that dyslexia is nothing to be ashamed of. As her confidence grows, Ally feels free to be herself and the world starts opening up with possibilities. She discovers that there’s a lot more to her—and to everyone—than a label, and that great minds don’t always think alike.

HELLO! Below is the code that Mr. Daniels writes on the board for the students to solve. Unfortunately, I will not give you an answer for it. However, I will tell you a couple of things:

  1. Yes, it can be solved.
  2. Each letter stands for another letter in the alphabet and follows a pattern. So, for example, if I told you that every letter in this word < ALD > was really the letter that is three letters after it in the alphabet,  <ALD > would really be < DOG >. This code below follows a pattern similar to this.
  3. Writing out the entire alphabet for yourself and experimenting will make this easier to solve.
  4. If you find this hard, don’t quit! It’s supposed to be hard and it feels AWESOME to solve something difficult.

Fish crawling up a tree - LiveJournal

Did you know that some fish can climb trees? Yes Yes! Mud jumpers (lat. Periophthalmus ) not only feel great on the ground, but also jump with pleasure, and at high tide they can even climb the lower branches of trees and rocks. They do this not at all in order to practice rock climbing. They just don't want the tide to take them far out to sea.

You will say: “What kind of fish are these, ordinary amphibians…” But no! These representatives of the goby family breathe with gills, and therefore are considered fish. A special partition protects their gill slit from drying out, and there is a small supply of water in the enlarged jaw cavity. A sort of fish in an aqualung! In addition, as long as the jumper remains wet, it is able to breathe through the skin, mouth, and esophagus.

These fish have fascinated scientists since the 17th century because of their extraordinary adaptation to an amphibian lifestyle. Scientists have been particularly impressed by their large and mobile eyes, and many jumping species (there are about 35 in total) have scientific names referring to these organs. For example, the name, Oxudercinae, comes from the Greek word okyderkes, which translates as "sighted". The genus Periophthalmus takes its name from the frog-like position of the eyes, which allows this fish to have excellent all-round vision, and is composed of two words, Peri, meaning "around" and ophtalmos, translated as "eyes"

There are only about 35 species of mudskippers belonging to the genus Periophthalmus in the world. Mudskippers are quite widespread in the world. They can be found in various parts of the world, ranging from West Africa from the Red Sea coast, through all of South and Southeast Asia, Malaysia and to northeastern Australia.

Mudskippers look more like amphibians than fish. Growing up to 15 centimeters, they have an elongated cone-shaped body. The color of the upper body can be from olive to gray, with spots and stripes of various colors, while the abdomen is usually silvery.

Mudskippers are mainly tropical and subtropical animals, and are distributed from the Atlantic coast of Africa to the eastern Pacific islands of Samoa and Tonga. The most widely distributed is the genus Periophthalmus, which currently has 18 species. Primarily jumpers live in wet mangrove swamps and tidal mudflats, some species live in rivers and ponds. They mainly inhabit the intertidal zone, and in addition to the ability to move on land, all jumpers have the ability to adapt to rapid changes in water salinity.

Because these fish spend a lot of time on the ground, they must be able to breathe air. Like frogs and salamanders, they have a rich network of capillaries located under the skin that allows oxygen to enter the bloodstream and release carbon dioxide. This type of breathing is known as skin breathing. Special mucus protects the skin and minimizes water loss.

Another important adaptation that aids breathing on land is the enlarged gill chambers in which mudskippers retain an air bubble. These gill chambers, riddled with capillaries, are tightly closed by gill covers when the fish is above water, and a sip of water helps protect the gills from drying out.

Surprisingly, jumpers' adaptations for breathing on land are not as complex as some other fish such as lungfish or gourami. Apparently, the ability to breathe on land did not play an important role in the evolution of jumpers for successful landing on the ground. Some research suggests that other physiological and anatomical adaptations, including osmoregulation, excretion, and ground movement, were much more important.

Adaptation to sex-terrestrial conditions is so great that they have lost some of the abilities typical of ordinary fish. For example, some species of mudskippers are unable to absorb oxygen for long while underwater. In other words, they hold their breath when underwater and are forced to slow down their heart rate and metabolic activity, much like diving air-breathing animals (seals, dolphins).

Jumpers see well above water, but become shortsighted when submerged. When they are on the ground, they draw in, and thus wet, their eyes in the fluid-filled eye sockets. This makes them the only fish species on Earth that can blink. Mudskippers also have the ability to hear airborne sounds and can react to things like the buzzing of a fly, but what organ the mudskippers use to detect sounds is not yet known.

But some of their most striking adaptations to life on earth are behavioral. Since they are very mobile and constantly moving between land and water, jumpers need to cope with sudden changes in temperature, humidity and salinity. But at the same time, mudskippers differ from other intertidal fish in their ability to move from an unfavorable area to an area where conditions are more favorable. For example, some species of fish cope with the increase in water temperature by regulating their metabolism, but the mudskipper will then come out of the water and let its body cool by evaporation. If it loses too much moisture, it will dive into the water to get wet again. If there is no liquid nearby, then this fish simply rolls in the mud.

Mudskippers have several types of movements that allow them to move in water and on land. In addition to normal swimming, they can move just below the waterline, with only their eyes sticking out of the water, or even glide along the surface. But on the ground, these fish can move in several ways. They can crawl, relying on their front fins, jump up to 60 cm high and even climb rocks and trees. Suckers located on the belly and on the fins help them to gain a foothold on a tree or on a stone. Here's a fish crawling through the trees!

Like many gobies, mudskippers are skilled diggers. They dig deep, up to 50 cm long burrows in soft, muddy ground, which are a refuge from predators and protection from adverse environmental conditions, such as when it gets cold. Their burrows are also important for breeding, as mudskippers lay their eggs in these dwellings, and the male will actively defend the clutch.

Given that mudskippers don't breathe well underwater, it was a mystery for many years how they could stay in their water-filled burrows for long periods, and how their eggs were preserved at high tide. In the end, it was found that the fish build their own caves, in which special chambers or air bags are equipped.

To replenish the oxygen supply at low tide, jumpers swallow a large breath of air, carry it to their dwelling, and release it into this chamber. This behavior is especially important for the proper development of the eggs, as they are usually laid on the ceiling of the same chamber. Thus, in addition to protecting the eggs, the male mudskipper also provides the developing eggs with a moist, oxygen-rich environment. Recently, Japanese researchers discovered that the male mudskipper also deliberately floods this chamber when the larvae are ready to hatch, thus allowing the offspring to leave the nest at high tide.

When the breeding season comes, males show off in front of the female, jumping in the air, spreading their colored dorsal fins. If the female considers such acrobatic numbers worthy of her attention, she approaches the male, and he, in turn, takes his partner into a pre-dug mink, where reproduction takes place.

Some gentlemen, after mating, drive the female out of the nest, and all care for future offspring falls on the shoulders of the male. Other species jointly care for the masonry. Not much is known about the development of mudskipper larvae. According to some reports, after hatching, the young drift in marine plankton until they are old enough to settle in the intertidal zones.

These fish feed on small insects, snails, crustaceans. Thanks to their sharp teeth, mudskippers grab prey with no problem, while the modified pharynx of the mouth pushes it down into the esophagus. Herbivorous fish like Boleophthalmus eat differently. They clean the algae from the water film and dirt, using funny head movements from side to side. When they have collected enough of this material, they move towards the water to sift the mixture in their wide pharyngeal jaws, as if they were panning for gold. But in general, everything that they can catch and swallow will serve as food for these fish.

The mudskipper got its name from the peculiar behavior of males during the breeding season. Each of them jumps high to attract the female. Here is how one of the researchers describes this ritual: “Sharply straightening the curved body, the male jumps to a height of about 20 cm. At the top of his jump, he straightens his brightly colored dorsal fin. In less than a minute of such acrobatic exercises, a female ready for breeding is attracted. In the period preceding breeding, each male energetically hollows out a 30-50 cm deep burrow in the mud, where the female then lays her eggs. Time after time, the male dives into a water-filled burrow, bites off pieces of silt with his tiny teeth and carries it 12-15 cm to the side.

The male fearlessly defends the nest with eggs from numerous coastal crabs, coming face to face with an armored enemy. The crab's powerful claws give it superior armament, but the mudskipper never retreats. Raising its dorsal fin like a battle flag, it stands on its pectoral fins and inflates its gill chambers to significantly increase its own size. A few quick lunges and pinches on the crab's limbs will often force an armored invader to retreat. During the breeding season, male mudskippers protect their burrows from males of their own species as well. "

The aquarium for these fish should be wide and shallow. I would like the aquarium to be about a meter long and 30 cm wide. The height of the aquarium is about 50 cm. In captivity, they live in aquaterrariums of a large area, as the fish love to frolic, as if confirming their name. Since jumpers spend most of their time on land, a “shore” should be made for them. It should be flat, occupying about half of the aquarium. The depth of the water in the deepest part should not exceed 7-10 cm. It makes no sense to make it deeper.

The shore is made of rounded pebbles or sand. Do not use stones or jewelry with sharp edges, as fish may injure themselves when jumping. Large stones, snags, etc. are placed on the shore. Jumpers love to sit on them. You can also make "islands", for example, from foam, where it is convenient to feed the fish.

Another important condition is temperature and humidity. The temperature of the water (and the air in the aquarium!) should be 26-30oC. The inside of the aquarium should be humid, this can be achieved by using a "flute-rain", under which they will happily sit. The heating pad should be installed so that the fish do not climb on it, for example, use an underwater heater or mask it with decorations. The aquarium should be closed at the top to maintain a humid atmosphere inside and in order to prevent jumpers from going for a walk around the apartment. They easily climb onto the aquarium walls and hang there for a long time. Jumpers are rather quarrelsome and aggressive fish, so it is difficult to find neighbors for them. Anything that fits into their mouth will end up there sooner or later.

They grow up to 10-15 cm and become aggressive towards each other. Periodically, they portray "tough guys" picking up a mouthful of yummy and with "splayed" fins they make it clear to the rest: "you will get it in the nose if you try to take it away. " In general, they try to snatch a piece and jump into the corner of the aquarium, so that they can chew it slowly there. This is how they sit at the front glass and silently observe everything that happens around. or slowly "walk" from one corner to another.

As a result, we can say that keeping these amusing fish is very easy, although some say otherwise. This fish is very interesting for those aquarists who prefer to keep something outlandish. And also it can be the first step to the marine aquarium (the water is salty). Be brave - nothing is impossible in the world.
