ANS 105 Points to Learn for Exam 2(While these may not cover everything, they are a goodstart!)1. Know the very last cat slides in the cat information section that were not covered during Exam 1. (You can check the last review sheet if you need exact pages, etc.)2. Know the cat breed photo ID’s.3. Know the cat breed info for matching type questions --- did we talk about any cat breeds other than the ones on the slides (like what cat breed is the most popular in the US, can you discuss any negative genetic issues that some cat breeds endure?). DO YOU KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BTW A CAT BREED AND A CAT HYBRID? The Bengal is unique here - why?)4. What are the most common uses of rabbits: ?, ?, ?5. Know how rabbits are unique compared to others animals.6. Know the rabbit size classes & a quick example (are there rabbit breeds like there are dog breeds?) … what major organization registers these rabbits (as discussed in class)7. What is coprophagy? (Make sure that you are specific) Name two species that do this? Why (specifically) do they do it – what nutrients do they gain from this?8. Be familiar with the rest of the rabbit notes (social behaviors when housed together, reproduction issues & potential disease problems – especially those discussed in relation to Australia).9. What are two reasons why it is important to spay a female rabbit? How should you breed rabbits? Why are their reproductive patterns unique and how has this lead to them getting into trouble in some countries, where in particular? What was discussed about human manufactured rabbit disease (pros and cons) = (the wiki link in the class material is useful here)?10. Be familiar with the guinea pig, mice, rat, ferret, gerbil & hamster info discussed in class. This is usually in matching type exam material. (Difficult material because many are less familiar with it so look over this; in addition some of the material is the same for several species so find something unique – many struggle with this material so please review it!) What are unique characteristics of each of these pets (i.e. what are specific unique diseases orbehaviors, gestation periods, or lifespans, etc. for each species?) 11. Remember to make specific points on your answers (if you are vague with answers such as “small animal, easy animal, etc.” then you will not get full credit --- I need to know smaller than what (or exact size) or what makes them easy / easier than what and why – For example:“Fish are easier than dogs due to the lack of needed outside exercise.” is OK – “Fish are easy pets.” is not OK). 12. We discussed several exotic animals that are commonly kept as pets; make sure you know how they are unique & why these animals are harder to keep as pets than more domesticated pets. (What makes them difficult? Where are they from (example – is there one from the USA)? Etc.) Do not confuse these with the small pocket pets discussed this exam period! Again, focus on what is unique about these species and why?13. Remember the information I discuss that is not necessarily written out on each slide is also fair game. This is not a lot of material but if we spend time discussing something please pay attention. (Internet stories or quick videos that pertain to class – even the ones I e-mail -,answered student questions, etc.) THIS CLASS ASKS LOTS OF QUESTIONS – ARE YOU PAYING ATTENTION? ☺.14. All the fish information is fair game for the exam. The Lighting / Heating / water pH slides just reinforce the concept that you have to research your fish and fish types before starting a tank or combining different fish species. Thus – re-read those slides. Example questions = What is the first thing to do when you decide to own fish? Why do people keep fish (2 reasons and be specific)? What is the most important type of filter? Why? What is the nitrogen cycle? Etc. What is special about Koi? Can you have a business taking care of fish? If so, explain. Can you train fish? 15. Review the mediasite lectures that are available if you were not in class! Just click on the linkat the top of the moodle website to go straight to them – or – to the links in our material. 16. The lecture with Alex from Blind Spot Animal Sanctuary is on this exam. What animals werediscussed? What did you learn from this lecture? 17. Mr. Kearney from Wake County Animal Shelter (WCAS) came and spoke to our class. Why?What was his main topic? What is the difference between WCAS and most of our other local shelters (like SPCA).18. The reptile & amphibian slides discussed in class will be on the exam. This will be updated after Monday’s class – but – at this time we are assuming that ALL the lecture material from this powerpoint is on the exam.19. What animals visited our classroom? 20. Did you watch the Snow Day Cat Film? Did you get the questions on the quiz about this filmcorrect? If not – please review this material! Exact Review Session Info was posted on Friday during class.The review session is at 6:30 on 3/3/20 in RM 451 Riddick! If you cannot attend the review session or do not learn best in that environment, pleasecome to office hours this week with questions or ask your question via e-mail (with plentyof time for a response before the
