List of amphibians of Yellowstone National Park

This is a list of amphibians of Yellowstone National Park in the United States. The Blotched Tiger Salamander is a species of Mole Salamander. Tiger salamanders are large, with a typical length of 6-8 inches, they can reach up to 14 inches in length neotenic individuals. Adults are blotchy with grey, green, or black, have large, lidded eyes, they have short snouts, thick necks, sturdy legs, long tails. Their diet consists of small insects and worms, though it is not rare for an adult to consume small frogs and baby mice. In Yellowstone, the only salamander in the park is widespread in a great variety of habitats, with sizable populations in Lamar Valley. Adults range up including the tail, it breeds in ponds and fishless lakes. The Boreal Chorus Frog, is a species of chorus frog native to Canada from the west of Lake Superior to western Alberta and north to the North West Territories, it occurs in the United States throughout Montana, northwestern Wisconsin, northeastern Arizona, northern New Mexico and southwestern Utah.

This is a small species of frog, reaching about 30mm in length. It is variable however it is brown, but can be green on the dorsal surface, with 3 broken dorsal stripes, these stripes can be distinct to quite faint. There is a dark band present through the eye and continuing down the side, it has enlarged toes discs to help in climbing small grasses and vegetation. In Yellowstone, this frog is common, but seen due to its small size and secretive habits, it lives in moist meadows and forests near wetlands and lays eggs in loose, irregular clusters attached to submerged vegetation in quiet water. The Western toad or boreal toad is a large toad species, between 5.6 and 13 cm long, of western North America. It has a white or cream dorsal stripe, is dusky gray or greenish dorsally with skin glands concentrated within the dark blotches; this is Yellowstone's only toad species. Once common throughout the park, they now appear to be much rarer than spotted frogs and chorus frogs. Adults can range far from wetlands because of their ability to soak up water from tiny puddles or moist areas.

They lay eggs in shallow, sun-warmed water, such as ponds, lake edges, slow streams, river backwaters. The Columbia Spotted Frog is a North American species of frog, it is a medium-sized frog reaching lengths of a half inches. Its color ranges from a dark, olive green to light brown with irregularly-shaped black spots on its back and legs; the belly and upper lip are white in color. Individuals can be distinguished from other Rana species by their shorter back legs, narrow snout and upturned eyes. Since they spend most of their time in the water, they have more webbing in their hind feet than similar species. In Yellowstone this frog is abundant and the best known amphibian in the park, it is found all summer along or in rivers, smaller lakes, marshes and rain pools. It lays eggs in quiet water, in globular masses surrounded by jelly. List of birds of Yellowstone National Park List of reptiles of Yellowstone National Park Animals of Yellowstone

A special forces team had been deployed in the Lubango area between November and December 1983 to conduct reconnaissance; the raid took place on the morning of 29 December 1983, by four Buccaneer strike aircraft of 24 Squadron. Thirty two bombs were dropped by the SAAF aircraft, some exploded while the rest were on delayed charges making the base temporally unusable. Scheepers, Marius.

Louis Leschi

Louis Leschi was a 20th-century French historian and archaeologist, a specialist of ancient North Africa. The son of academics, Louis Leschi followed himself an exemplary curriculum whose beginnings were interrupted by World War I. After his admission to the École Normale Superieure in 1919, he obtained his agrégation of history in 1922, he was a member of the École française de Rome from 1922 to 1924. During this period of training, he followed the courses of Jérôme Carcopino, it was during his stay in the French school in Rome that he was sent to Algeria to Stéphane Gsell and found his vocation of archaeologist specializing in ancient Algeria. He was appointed a professor in high school in Algiers until 1932, he was also associated to the research conducted by Eugène Albertini and gave classes in 1926 at the Faculty. When Albertini was appointed to the Collège de France in 1932, Leschi succeeded him at the direction of the Department of Antiquities of North Africa. Leschi succeeded him and Stéphane Gsell, as a teacher at the Faculty of Algiers, but only as detached high school teacher, his lack of doctoral thesis preventing him to get the chair of the Faculty.

Dividing his time between teaching and intense activity in the context of his archaeological responsibilities, Leschi never supported his thesis. That did not prevent him from becoming a renowned scholar and exert a profound influence on the development of archeology in Algeria. In 1932, he was a member of the board of the Algerian Historical Society of which he became vice president in 1944. In 1942, he was elected a corresponding member of the Academy of Belles Lettres, he died of illness in 1954 without being able to publish an expected account on ancient Numidia. From 1923, Louis Leschi left many scientific articles on archeology and epigraphy, some of which were taken up in a posthumous volume published in 1957. In addition to his articles in Comptes rendus des scéances de l'Académie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres and Mélanges de l'École française de Rome, he published reports on Algerian archeology in the Revue africaine from 1933 to 1953, he wrote large public works and archaeological guides, including one devoted to the site of Cuicul.

He took part to the edition of the Albertini tablets. His action as director of the antiquities service was marked by several important initiatives. With Colonel Baradez, he was the organizer and initiator of the practice of aerial archaeology in North Africa. In 1949 he supported the creation of a prehistoric anthropology laboratory at the Bardo National Museum of Prehistory and Ethnography. Among many operations as part of his service, he supervised the excavation of Hippo Regius led by M. E. Marec, followed those of Tebessa and Djemila, accompanied those of fort Timgad led by Godet. Leschi planned to publish a volume on the Byzantine fort, he led the excavations in Lambaesis. He was one of the creators of the journal Libyca and contributed to the formation of many archaeologists including Pierre Salama. 1938: Djemila Cuicul de Numidie: toute une cité de l'Afrique romaine, Algiers 1943: Le Centenarium d'Aqua Viva près de M'doukal, Algiers, 22 p. 1950: Tipasa de Maurétanie, Algiers, 53 p. 1952: Tablettes Albertini.

Surfer (EP)

Surfer is a 2001 EP by NOFX. The record was released on Fat Wreck Chords; the methodology for writing and recording the songs was much the same as the band's Fuck the Kids EP. Fat Mike wrote all of the songs in a limited amount of time, claiming to have only given himself ten minutes to finish each one, did not teach the songs to the rest of the band until the day of recording; the EP was recorded in two full-day sessions, making it one of the band's fastest-completed EP or album recording, second to Fuck the Kids, recorded and mixed in a day and a half. The EP was included on the second disc of 45 or 46 Songs That Weren't Good Enough to Go on Our Other Records, but with one track omitted in order to preserve something unique about the original 7" release; the album cover and lyric sheet was inspired by Bad Religion's 1988 record Suffer. Another reference to Suffer is etched into the vinyl: "THE MASSES OF HUMANITY HAVE ALWAYS HAD TO SURF," as opposed to ""THE MASSES OF HUMANITY HAVE ALWAYS HAD TO SUFFER", etched on the Bad Religion album.

The artwork of the lyrics being written on a wall was replicated for Surfer. The record is 13 minutes in length; the first 500 copies were pressed on blue vinyl, while subsequent pressings were released on black vinyl.
