Andrew-sarchs Andrewsarchus (named for paleontologist Roy Chapman Andrews, who led the expedition on which it was found) was a primitive, carnivorous mammal that lived during the early Eocene Epoch, roughly 45 million years ago. This giant creodont was heavily-built and wolf-like. Andrewsarchus may be an ancestor of the whales. Fossils have been found in Mongolia; 4. Cave Lion 5.
 In the wild, Burmese pythons grow to 3.7 metres (12 ft) on average, while specimens of more than 4 metres (13 ft) are uncommon.  In general, individuals over 5 metres are rare.  The record maximum length for Burmese Pythons is held by a female named “Baby”, that lived at Serpent Safari, Gurnee, Illinois, for 27 years. Shortly after death, her actual length was determined to be 5.74 metres (18 ft 10 in). Widely published data of specimens that were reported to have been even several feet longer are not verified.
The Amur, or Far Eastern leopard (Panthera pardus orientalis) is one of the eight subspecies of leopard. It is only found in the Russian Far East and North East China and there are fewer than 40 individuals left in the wild, making it one of the world’s most endangered big cats. For this reason, it is listed as Critically Endangered by the IUCN. Amur leopards live in the temperate forests of Far Eastern Russia, experiencing harsh winters with extreme cold and deep snow, as well as hot summers. The species is adapted to a cool climate and has thick fur which grows up to 7.5 cm long in winter.
Giraffes are and elegant and masterful animal. You may not think of giraffes as any of these things, but you will be surprised to know that a giraffe was once a gift fit for an emperor. This was precisely the case when the emperor of China decided he was to give a gift to the emperor of India. Giraffes are most known for their distinct features, but some less known features are just as equally fascinating. Giraffes currently only live in parts of Africa.
Savannah and Black Throated- monitors Steven Raynor Junior English Comp.1 Sharon Carmack June, 18 2012 1 Savannah and Black throated - monitors are the two reptiles I’m going to compare and contrast for you. They both are part of the monitor family which is one of the oldest and largest species on the planet. Even though they are part of the same family they both have some differences and they share some likenesses as well. First off the Savannah monitor mainly lives in the grass lands of central Africa, generally found in Senegal, Northern Zaire, Ghana, Eritrea and Togo, while the Black throated-monitor is mainly found in the woodlands area of East-Africa near Tanzania. Black throat monitors are semi arboreal but spend half
The term "domestic dog" is generally used for both domesticated and feral varieties. The dog was the first domesticated animal and has been the most widely kept working, hunting, and pet animal in human history.  The word "dog" can also refer to the male of a canine species, as opposed to the word "bitch" which refers to the female of the species. Recent studies of "well-preserved remains of a dog-like canid from the Razboinichya Cave" in the Altai Mountains of southern Siberia concluded that a particular instance of early wolf domestication approximately 33,000 years ago did not result in modern dog lineages, possibly because of climate disruption during the Last Glacial Maximum.  The authors postulate that at least several such incipient events have occurred.
THE BALD EAGLE The bald eagle is a bird of prey with a blackish-brown back and breast and a white head, neck, and tail. It has yellow feet and beak. It is seen in different colors though sometimes because it is seen on a lot of United States currency. The Bald Eagles nest is the biggest nest of any North American bird. It is 4 meters deep, 2.5 meters wide and 1 ton in weight.
Wolves are the largest members of the canine family. Which includes, foxes, cyotes, jackals, domestic dog, and other wild dog.

The Greaty wolf has a slender coat and are grey on its head and whole body the inside of it's ears are white and the tips of it's ears are black and so is the tail along with white and grey. The red wolf is red with red tiped ears and a white have a white stomach only eighty of them are still alive in southern Africa.
7. Who is "Lucy"? Analyses show that Lucy was approximately 3 feet 6 inches tall, weighed 62 pounds, and was 25 years old when she died. This is the most complete A. afarensis skeleton yet described. 8. When did the species P. boisei exist and list 2 of its characteristics.
 Lying Siberian tiger A Siberian tigress Measurements taken by scientists of the Siberian Tiger Project in Sikhote-Alin range from 178 to 208 cm (70 to 82 in) in head and body length measured in straight line, with an average of 195 cm (77 in) for males; and for females ranging from 167 to 182 cm (66 to 72 in) with an average of 174 cm (69 in). The average tail measures 99 cm (39 in) in males and 91 cm (36 in) in females. The longest male "Maurice" measured 309 cm (122 in) in total length (tail of 101 cm (40 in)) and had a chest girth of 127 cm (50 in). The longest female "Maria Ivanna" measured 270 cm (110 in) in total length (tail of 88 cm (35 in)) and had a chest girth of 108 cm (43 in). These measurements show that the present Amur tiger is longer than the Bengal tiger and the African lion.
