Giraffes eat a lot too; up to as much as 66 pounds a day. Surprisingly, giraffes are rarely seen drinking because they receive most of their water through the consumption of acacia tree leaves. A giraffe uses its tongue to pluck leaves of branches, among other things. Like humans, giraffes have 32 teeth, except with one difference. In the top row where our teeth are usually located, giraffes have a bony ridge instead.
Here’s what I’ve learned. Peacock day geckos eat insects, nectar, and fruits. Peacock day geckos are one of the most beautiful day geckos.They live in the tropical forests of Madagascar. My lizard can grow to be about four and a half inches long. They are also brightly colored and have skin that can be damaged easily in the rainy season.
Nature has selected out the thumb in order for the spider monkey to swing through trees since they are closely 100% arboreal as well as 100% quadrapedal. (PIN). These monkeys are nearly never found on terrestrial land. The Capuchin monkey is another species that I really enjoyed. They come from the tropical forests of Central and South Africa.
The mountain lion is a large cat that is also known as a cougar, panther, yellow cat, puma, and several other names (Danz, 1999, p.13). Shoulder heights average around 30 inches and length is approximately eight feet (“Mountain Lion”, 2014). The tail is about one-third of the entire body length and these cats typically weigh between 75 and 175 pounds (“Mountain Lion”, 2014). However, the largest mountain lion weighed 276 pounds and was killed near Hillside, Arizona (Danz, 1999, p.44). The legs of the cat are very muscular and the back legs are much longer than the front, allowing the cats to increase their leaping abilities (Knight, 2005).
The members of a pod hunt together, attacking even very large prey and then sharing it. The pod members always protect the young, the sick and the injured. Orcas grow to be about 27-33 feet long, and weigh more than 8,000-12,000 pounds. The male orca is larger than the female. They are the largest member of the dolphin family.
They can weigh up to 200 pounds and are native to jungles and grassy marshes. The Burmese is a highly carnivorous species; their diet consists of many different types of animals including mammals, birds, and reptiles of appropriate size to fit into their mouth. These pythons tend not to eat every day; they spend most of the day warming up from the sun, providing them with the necessary energy to hunt. Once food is obtained, depending on the size of the meal they will spend a few days to several weeks absorbing heat to digest there food. The Burmese was introduced by human mediated transport.
Cave Lion 5. Chalicotherium The cave lion (Panthera leo spelaea) was probably the biggest lion that ever lived. It was 25 percent bigger than lions today and was up to about 11.5 ft (3.5 m) long. was an early, herbivorous mammal from the Miocene. This forest browser was an ungulate with large, clawed feet (instead of hooves).
It’s been recorded that a researcher found a nest that weighed two tons. The many fascinating things about eagles are plentiful; they can fly to an altitude of 10, 000 feet and reach high speeds of 30 to 35 mph. Eagles soar above the storm clouds. The eagle can dive at speeds over 100 mph. I have also realized in my reading and researching that the eagle can actually swim.
The average Florida Panther needs about three thousand calories per day to keep them going. Pregnant females need about eight thousand calories and growing kittens need about twenty thousand calories per day to survive. They tend to eat larger animals, such as deer and wild pigs, but also eat raccoons, armadillos, rabbits, and other smaller game. They are not all carnivorous though, they will occasionally eat some plants. At night, when this remarkable animal is wide awake, they travel in zig-zag patterns while they hunt and defend their territory.
Do you think we are caring for this animal as God would have us care for them? I think there are people who take great care in looking after Monkey’s, the people who work in the Zoo’s and the people who are trying to protect the Monkey’s in the forest. But there are always people who try and take advantage of these creatures for there own gain, and mostly that is for money. So probally on a hole I think that God would like us to take more care with the Monkeys. Bibliograhy
