Austin Peay State University’s “Science on Tap” discusses “The Snake that Ate Guam”, December 3rd

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – On Guam, a strange silence hangs over the Pacific island’s dense jungles. Birds don’t sing or call out to mates. They don’t flutter from branch to branch or shout at potential predators.

The jungles are eerily quiet because, more than half a century after an innocent looking tree snake arrived on Guam, the serpent devoured nearly all the island’s birds.

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – It’s never too early to start thinking and planning for retirement, especially when it comes to the top three expenses: housing, transportation and healthcare.
