Topic: first appeared on Earth

Grammatically the sentence is correct and clear. One correction can be the lowercase 'e' in earth.

On the biological or ecological side, this can be debated.
Topic: between May to/and June

Yes, the usual combination is "from ... to ..." or "between ... and ...".

In this case, I would not prefer any of these two styles. In Mathematics or Statistics, when we say "between a and b", we often need to specify whether the range is inclusive of a and b or exclusive. Saying "between May and June" does not give any value if the start and end limits are not inclusive. I can't find a whole number between 5 and 6.

I think a better wording here can be "the applicant has to be available during May and June".
Alternatively, the start and end dates can be used for better clarity: "the applicant has to be available between 1 May 2020 and 30 June 2020" or "the applicant has to be available from 1 May 2020 to 30 June 2020".

Taurine, a tricycle looks like this.
