In captivity they may receive honey, eggs, fish, yams, shrub leaves, oranges, or bananas along with specially prepared feed.  The giant panda lives in a few mountain ranges in central China, mainly in Sichuan province, but also in the Shaanxi and Gansu provinces.  Due to farming, deforestation and other development, the panda has been driven out of the lowland areas where it once lived. The panda is a conservation reliant endangered species.  A 2007 report shows 239 pandas living in captivity inside China and another 27 outside the country.
Plantigrade feet means both heel and toe make contact with the ground when walking in the manner similar to humans. Adult Pandas grow to be about 5-6 feet high. They will weigh up to 276 pounds and males weighing 10% to 20% more than females. Giant Pandas, with their short claws, are capable of climbing trees very easily and effortless. With few other enemies other than people, the lifespan of a wild panda is about 25 years or above The head of a Panda is very large and has developed special molars for chewing plants and other thinks they like to eat.
Emperor Penguins can dive much further than any other penguin. Food intake of the emperor penguin Intake varies with the quantity and variety of food available from different areas at different times of the year. An adult penguin eats 2–3 kg per day. When they need to fatten up before the start of the breeding season, they can eat as much as 6 kg per day.Breeding adults really have to fill up their stomachs before they return to the colony. They need to feed their chicks and the colonies are often a long way from the fishing grounds.
The Wild Boars, or sus scrofa can vary from grey to dark brown to black. They can range from 125 pounds to 300 pounds. Wild boars are not cute little pigs with curly tails. The male boars have 2-5 inch tusks, while female boars have shorter ones, but still a very dangerous body part. Mother boars can have up to 2 liters per year sometimes ranging to 10 piglets.
However the Snow Leopard does compete with hunters who illegally hunt them for the selling’s of their organs. Over Population The Snow Leopard is expected to soon become extinct, and yes there are other species such as some of their small prey seeming to be overpopulating the area. The bunnies are said to be mass producing over in their habitat but only because of how quick bunnies and hare are at reproduction. On the other hand the larger prey are said to never be a problem of over population at this point because the snow leopard feed off them daily and because they don’t have a high
Well, I sure didn’t. An eagle nest is called an Aerie. A female eagle usually lays 2 eggs at a time, but the elder eaglet occasionally eats its sibling. Sometimes, the father eagle sits on the nest. Eaglets grow rapidly because of the parents feeding the baby eagles a lot of food.
Some animals, like the elephant, take 16 years to reach full maturity. The loss of time, money, food, and labor would not be worth trying to domesticate an elephant. I would also want them to know that out of all the animals in the world only five have became farmyard animals. Those five are the sheep, the pig, the horse, the goat, and the great cow. The cow is one of the great wonders of our earth.
Introduction The Endangered Animal I picked is a koala bear. I picked this animal because I think its really cute and cuddly, and I also wanted to learn all about them. I didn’t know that the koala bear was endangered. Which makes me sad to think some day we might not have koalas. Koalas have a very unusual diet that could kill other animals and are very tiny.
While they do not have any predators, another factor is that female Nutria’s can breed up to 10-15 babies a year. Once that liter was six months old, the mother would breed again along with those six month old babies. My opinion is that all the wetlands in Louisiana will be destroyed and no longer existent before they are able to do something about the Nutria population. Once the current food source has been devoured, I believe half of the population will die off before the Nutria’s could find a new place to survive off of. Once the Nutria’s could find a suitable environment, the guinea pig look alike could start to populate once
A typical full-grown adult giraffe will eat over 70 pounds of leaves, twigs, and fruit each day. Giraffes don't need to drink water very often because there is so much water in the leaves they eat. However, when they do drink water, they can drink several gallons at a time. This is good because a giraffe has to bend down and get into a vulnerable position when drinking. Not a good idea when there are lions sneaking around!
