5. You are investigating newly discovered vertebrate animals on a remote island. You capture several specimens of two different species and take some basic measurements. You also find some dead animals of each species so you are able to do some investigation of their internal organs. The results of your investigation are below: Measurements Species A (N=5) Species B (N=8) Avg Weight (gm) 254 gm 263 gm Avg Body Temp °C) 38°C 25°C Avg Respiratory Rate 40 breaths/min 18 breaths/min Avg Heart Rate 495 beats/min 55 beats/min Weight of Heart (N=2) 1 gm 1.2 gm Weight of Lungs (N=2) 2.8 gm 2.5 gm Number of mitochondria/gm 40 X 10″ 15 X 10″ muscle mass Based on these results, which animal do you expect to have a higher metabolic rate (MR) and why? Be specific in your explanation about what lead to your conclusion. What else can you surmise about these two animals based on your results?
