Giraffes will fight if they have to, but will usually just try to outrun a predator. They often get a good head start on predators because they have great eyesight and get a good view of the territory with their great height. As a matter of fact, other animals know how good giraffes are at seeing predators, so they hang around with giraffes and, if they see the giraffes start to get nervous or take off running, they take off too. What do they eat? Giraffes are herbivores, meaning they eat plants rather than meat.
Their brain size can be compared to a size of a walnut. They walked on four legs, but the back legs were twice as long as its front legs. A Stegosaurus was up to 26-30 feet long, about 9 feet tall and weighed about 6,800 pounds. Its head was carried close to the ground, probably no more than 3 feet high. Stegosauruses had 17 bony plates that were embedded in its back.
The name dinosaur translates as 'terrible or wondrous lizards' and they certainly evolved in a huge range of sizes and shapes, from the gigantic plant-eating sauropods to the quick meat-eating tyrannosaurs. So far, the remains of over 1,000 different dinosaur species have been identified from fossils the extinction of most dinosaurs species occurred in the Cretaceous-Tertiary Extinction event. Fossil records show that birds evolved within the Theropod dinosaurs during the Jurassic period. Some birds survived the Cretaceous-Tertiary Extinction event from which modern birds
They are different from their reptile ancestors in that they have an S shaped neck and feet held directly beneath their bodies, and several other features. How many different kinds of dinosaurs were there? We know about 300 kinds now, half of those from a single tooth or bone. They are probably thousands of kinds of dinosaurs. Species occur in over 400 in general.
Convenient enough, these forests are also abundant in their main food source. Gorillas spend most of their days eating. Specifically, about 14 hours are spent feeding and foraging and about 10 hours are spent resting each day. Being herbivores, they eat a variety of fruits, leaves, and shoots. Their large sagittal crest and long canines allow them to crush hard
Meat required for food 11 - 60 lbs also 57 for large males The number of lions in the pride may vary. Tigers may consume up to 40 kg (88 pounds) of meat at one time. It is estimated that every tiger consumes about 50 deer-sized animals each year, about one per week. Main Prey Medium to large ungulates, most notably thompson's gazelle, zebra, wildebeest, impala, warthog, hartebeest, waterbuck, cape buffalo, hippo, rhino, giraffe, and elephants. Large animals such as deer, buffalo and wild pigs, but they will also hunt fish, monkeys, birds, reptiles and sometimes even baby elephants.
The pyramid is also the tallest man made structure for over 3800 years, and was later surpassed by Lincoln cathedral. The pyramid is a tomb built for the fourth dynasty Egyptian king Khufu, and that is why the pyramid of Giza is also called Khufu’s pyramid or the pyramid of Khufu. Khufu was remembered as a very ruthless king, but he is also remembered as the builder of the pyramid. The pyramid was built just under 30 years, used about 2 million blocks of stone, each blocks weigh 2.5 tons, and how did they move them from 500 miles away? Well a lot of people belief that sloping ramps built out of mud, stone, and wood were used as transportation.
The main characteristics of this class include: fur/hair, mammary glands that evolved from sweat glands to produce milk for their young, a diaphragm to aid in respiration, they are endothermic, and bear live young. They belong to order Artiodactyla, which have the characteristics of even-toed hooves and are herbivorous (Carter 6). This information supports my argument in many ways. Giraffes are perfect for surviving in the African savannas because they have a camouflaged coat with patches of different sizes and colors to help them hide from predators, and have a fringed tail to help keep flies and other pests away. Their hind legs are shorter than their front legs, with tough hooves protecting each foot as well.
Rhinos are also herbivores, meaning they are subject to grazing on grass, and some even prefer to eat the foliage of trees or even bushes. Rhinos are herbivores, meaning they eat only plants (1). They also have a prehensile upper lip that is ideally suited to help grasp grass (2), while other Rhinos prefer to eat the foliage of trees or bushes. With the Rhinos being herbivores, this eliminates the threat that they are to humans, unless of course a human
The cheetah, also known as Acinonyx jubatus in the scientific world, is one of the most speedy, agile, and fiesty animals on land. It is the oldest feline out of the thirty seven different species of cats, originating over four million years ago. With the start of the last Ice Age, approximately 10,000 years ago, all the cheetah in North America, Europe, and most of those in Asia and Africa perished. Fossils have been discovered in what is now Nevada, Wyoming, and Texas. From those that did survive this epic Ice Age, and from evolution of closely related animals, descended the cheetah that we recognize today.
